Frontier Charters is based out of Arroyo City Texas and South Padre Island. Our services cater to anglers of all ages and levels of skill.

Our Goal:

At Frontier Charters our goal is to insure your safety and fun while fishing from our 2013 21foot Dargel Scout.


Our Specialty:

We specialize in site fishing the flats for Red Fish, Speckled Trout, Snook and a variety of other species found in the Lower Laguna Madre.


What To Expect:

While fishing from the boat, we will leave the dock as early as possible, preferably at sunrise. After arriving to our destination, we will be fishing in water 10 to 16 inches in depth (The Flats). Top water lures are best in the early morning hours. Later in the morning when the sun rises adequately, we will begin site fishing. At times, we do bait fish, if the weather conditions dictate.
