About Your Trip

Launch with Captain Payton Prestenbach to explore the waters around Padre Island and Corpus Christi. These waters are home to all kinds of inshore denizens but you can expect to target the Texas "Big Three", Redfish, Trout, and Flounder. You’ll mainly use light tackle to the bays for these fun and delicious fish, but depending on the day, weather, and tides, Captain Payton may have a secret method to show you for hooking into them!
