Fishing

We are spending some time in San Antonio but we are planning a day trip to Corpus Christie. We would like to fish while we are there.

Any recommendations? We have never been to Texas. Also we would like to visit a working ranch. I have heard of King Ranch which is also 2 hours away is there one closer to San Antonio?

You might think about spending one night in the Corpus Christi area. You could do the King Ranch the day you arrive and then the next morning take the ferry to Port Aransas for a fishing expedition.

You got to ask yourself if you want to get on a boat or tour and catch some big fish or do you feel just like being on a pier, relaxing, trying to catch a fish like my husband! We like to park on Shoreline Dr. (Downtown Corpus Christi), there is alot of stuff to do there if you don't have alot of time to go into Mustang Island, Port Aransas, etc You're better off getting info from someone in CC but if you don't have the equipment to fish then they could tell you where to rent or where to get a permit if needed. I suggest you drive straight to Kingsville early to go to King Ranch then to Padre Island since padre island it's a little closer than Port Aransas and come back to SA. Check out www.ospreycruises.com or visitpadre.com
