Fishing Trip and Charter Information

Lou Austin Fishing provides everything you need for a successful Fishing trip on the Laguna Madre Bay in the South Padre and Port Isabel:

  • Bait
  • Lures
  • Rods and Reels
  • Iced Coolers
  • And, of course, “advice”

Things that you need:

  • Texas fishing license (if required) under 17 years old not required.
  • Hat and Sunglasses (polarized suggested).
  • Whatever you might want to eat or drink.
  • Suitable clothing — you can always take it off but if you didn’t bring it! Well you know the rest.

What to Expect

One thing to always expect is a lot of “FUN” and hopefully a lot of fish.

  • All fish belong to the customer.
  • Fish cleaning and packaging is available.
  • Bring a cooler to take home YOUR fish.

Capt Lou Austin’s boat is specially designed for Bay Fishing Charters on the Laguna Madre and is always in great condition, replaced with a brand new boat every two years.
