SIGHT FISHING THE CRYSTAL CLEAR WATERS OF THE LOWER LAGUNA MADRE
FOR REDFISH AND SPECKLED TROUT SINCE 1985
Weldon Charter Service is a south Texas saltwater fishing guide service based in Arroyo City, Texas. Centrally located on the Lower Laguna Madre, our charters may range from Port Mansfield to South Padre Island. WCS offers fly fishing charters as well as lure fishing trips. Targeted species include redfish, speckled trout and flounder.
Our usual approach is to sight fish for redfish and speckled trout whenever possible. Sight fishing can be done from the boat, poling, drifting or wading the warm, shallow flats of the Lower Laguna Madre. Sight fishing requires an angler to spot and identify gamefish and make an accurate cast in varying wind conditions.
We are always ready and willing to work with individual anglers with regard to learning how to spot fish and cast to them.
Sometimes a charter includes anglers of varying skill levels and even a mix of fly fishers and lure fishers. We'll try to work with each angler throughout the day and combine several different approaches in an effort to maximize everyone's opportunities. Of course, the more people taken on one charter, the harder it is for us to provide the individual attention that we strive for.
From novice to expert, the best opportunities and adventures are enjoyed by all when an extended stay of two or three days is planned. It is impossible to experience all of the different types of fishing the Lower Laguna Madre has to offer in just one day.
Early in the morning, before the sun rises high enough for sight fishing -- and on days where cloud cover prevents us from sight fishing -- we'll turn to other fishing techniques, such as stalking tailing fish, working topwater lures and soft plastics over potholes and or flounder fishing. These alternative techniques are usually done on the west side of the bay system, which has a grassy bottom.
in the day we may have time to experience sight fishing at its best,
Florida or Bahamas style on the white sands of the east bank. The
Lower Laguna Madre offers over sixty miles of pure white sand flats
along the backside of the Padre Island National Seashore. The water
depth on the white sand seldom exceeds 12" to 14". This strip of heavenly
waters varies in width from several hundred yards to about a mile
wide. Most of our clients have never experienced
anything as beautiful and productive as the white sand flats of Padre
Island. It is the only place in Texas where one can experience the
combination of gin clear water over a white sandy flat.
OUR FISHING GUIDE POLICY...
Once you book a trip with us, we will attempt to contact you two or three days in advance of your scheduled trip. At this time, we can go over the current weather forecast and determine where we will be meeting on the morning of your charter. If the weather forecast is not acceptable, we can re-schedule your trip if you wish. Once you have elected to go out with us, then we are both committed to following through with whatever agreement we have made. We cannot control the weather, the behavior of fish or the fisherman's abilities. Some days turn out to be windy, sometimes the fish are extra spooky and won't hit but, fortunately, many days are absolutely perfect! We feel badly when a client doesn't catch a fish or when the wind and weather unexpectedly turn on us but we cannot afford to give discounts or compensate you for any difficulties you may face. No matter what Mother Nature throws at us, we will always do the best we can to make sure you catch fish and have a good time.
