Beach Bums Antiques in Port Aransas

Beach Bums Antiques is located on the main strip in Port Aransas. They are a great fun loving couple above is a picture of Chris standing in his shop. He is a very nice man along with his wife Rhonda. They get antiques from all over the world, and have a great selection, and offer good decor to any of your beach houses in the area, or in South Padre Island. I love coming to the shop and just talking with Chris and Rhonda, they know so much about antiques, and Chris even does his own restoration of certain pieces. One time I went in there they offered me free Sangria, which I thought was really cool, even though I had been drinking beer all morning! I love Texas. I just figured I would do a post about this shop to promote the business, and to show my thanks to such a great shop with tons of history being so close to us in Port Aransas. God bless you Chris and Rhonda.

The Best Coffee Shop in Port Aransas Coffee Waves

It is called Coffee Waves and its no Starbucks, but it does have Italian Gelato Ice cream and a great variety of great tasting Coffee. This place is excellent to go to if you have had a rough night drinking, or just a rough night of any type in general. If you have to jump on internet wi-fi with your laptop, this is a great place to stop and enjoy a nice cup of coffee. They also have private rooms, so that you can work in peace without anyone bothering you. The atmosphere is very nice, and they have a beautiful chandelier in the middle of the place that is beautiful.

Port Aransas Helicopter Ride

This was not filmed by me, but if you want to ride a helicopter in Port Aransas Texas it will run you about $100.00 a person, and it will last about 20 minutes. It looks like great fun and I plan on trying it next time I go so I can take my own video. Have fun watching the scenery is great!

The Coast Club Bar and Lounge in Port Aransas

The Coast Club in Port Aransas is a pretty good chill spot that has a full bar, and even stuff to eat. It has a great ambiance at night, and they play good music. If you are looking for a decent spot to drink, and eat, with good music, thats not always country western...I suggest you check out The Coast Club. They have bands that come out and play live music, and its located right on the strip which makes it very easy to get to no matter where you are at in Port Aransas. Don't waste time driving all the way to Corpus from Port Aransas to listen to good music....Check out The Coast Club instead!

Horace Caldwell Fishing Pier in Port Aransas

Horace Caldwell pier is in I.B. Magee Park on Mustang Island. This pier is made of concrete, and its well lighted at night. It also is very easy to access so you cannot miss it. The pier is 1200 feet long so that provides tons of access to the Gulf of Mexico, without having to worry about people getting to close to you. You get your breathing room i guess you could say on this pier. The fact that its made of concrete makes it feel much more safe also during a storm, or a potential storm. It provides great fishing both in the summer and winter months. In the months of July, August, September it is very easy to catch offshore fish on this pier, like king mackerel because of how big it is and how deep you can go. I have seen Tarpon fish,  Red Fish, Speckled Trout, Black Drum, Sheepshead, and Shark being caught at this pier. The I.B. Magee Beach Park has public showers, and camping available, with RV hookups. You can even camp at the park with a tent. Make sure you check in for camping or parking your RV at the Visitors Station.

Charlie's Pasture Pier in Port Aransas

This fishing pier is located at the very end of Port Street. If you are coming from the Ferry Landing take a left, from Cotter street, to Port Street. Keep on going down Port Street until you see the parking, and the pier to your right. This pier is a bit more protected during the summer, than robert's pier because of the strong southeastern winds. There is no bait shop by the pier so make sure you come prepared with your fishing gear, and tackle. This pier is known for the HUGE schools of fish that swim by during the fall and spring months. Right now though this pier is closed due to a boat that crashed into it. They are currently fixing it and it should be up and running soon!

Robert's Point Fishing Pier in Port Aransas

This pier is located right at the edge of the Corpus Christi Ship Channel. It sits right between where the Gulf of Mexico waters, and the Bay waters meet. This makes for truly excellent fishing. This pier is free to the public and has lighting for night fishing. This is definitely recommended highly by me. If you bring your own gear, have a case of brews, then this is a great spot to spend your morning, noon, and night. Just make sure you have a fishing license, and your real license if your drinking....just incase the game warden, or police officer shows up.....It happens on occasion  ;-)

How to Make an Easy Bait Fish Trap

I have heard many people that have made these types of fish traps using 2 2-Liter Soda bottles. What I am about to show you is a better way. If you use 2 Liter soda bottles you will have to use tape or glue, just to hold the thing together. I find that this is a negative thing because fish will be even less attracted to your trap because of the chemicals in the adhesive used to make it. I was looking at the Ozarka sport bottle one day, and i saw that it had ridges on it that would be perfect for holding together the trap without the use of tape or glue. The first step is to remove the plastic wrapper around the bottle, and to throw away the lid to the bottle.

You see those ridges towards the top of the bottle? This will allow the trap to stay together underwater, without the use of any type of adhesive. The next step will be to cut the bottle at the first ridge. This will be relatively easy to do just let it be your guide when cutting. When your done this should be what it looks like...

Now that you have cut the top off of the bottle you are done! Go find some old cheese, or even some bread and throw it inside the bottle, also find a few heavy rocks or shells that you can put at the bottom of the bottle so that it doesn't float at the top of the water when you put it in....I recommend you tie a rope in the middle of the bottle so that you can let it sink and easily tie it somewhere on shore, or on a boat. This way you can easily pick it up to check it, and at the same time it won't float away. This is how the trap will go together once you have filled it with bait, and weight rocks...

Now its time for you to drop your filled trap at the bottom of the ocean and tie it down....Wait a couple of hours, or at least 30 mins, and come back to check your trap. This is the easiest way to make a fish trap from a plastic bottle. Small fish check in, but they don't check out :-)   Have Fun!

The Port Aransas Brewing Company

The Port Aransas brewing company is a great place to have a great time. If you like sports and need to find a great place with a couple flat screens i highly recommend this place. What makes this place unique is they actually brew there own beer as the name implies. My favorite beer to have there is the "Beachy Blonde".

The alvacado stoffer is my favorite burger that they make. They even have unique sweet potatoe fries that taste wonderful. You need to check it out. They make pizza, and other things too i just haven't tried them yet because I love this burger so much. Thank you Port A Brewery.

Ferry Landing in Port Aransas Texas from Google

Here are some cool pictures that I took of Port Aransas. The first one i want to show you is one taken from Google Earth. Its so pretty to see all the ferries working away...I wonder how often Google takes these images? Oh well, I just wanted to save it here so that in this point in time I can know what the ferry landing looked like in 2010, of June :-) !

Here is a beautiful picture of what the current skyline of Port Aransas looks like so far, i imagine, that this town is definitely not done growing, I love it here, I love the fresh air.

Some great Fish caught by some Fishermen in Port Aransas, and Rockport

I love fishing in Port Aransas in Rockport with our boat. Its great to get out there. You don't have to go very deep before you start pulling Red Fish like the one you see above. They are everywhere out here. I plan on getting a bigger boat, and going even farther, maybe the Mayan Riviera....But still I will always come back to Port Aransas for good fishing and good folks...

Wow.... I don't know who this guy is but i know this monster fish was caught over by Rockport Texas. Man that fish looks almost prehistoric! That is an awesome catch...Now that is something to hang on the wall. I hope you guys like my blog, feel free to post comments in response to any of my posts, I am always sure to answer all my nice comments :-) !

Beach Permits are a Must have on any Beach in Port Aransas Texas

We are veterans when it comes to the Port Aransas beach side experience. We have been coming to Port Aransas many years even before we had a beach house. I still remember hauling the Airstream trailer to the Pioneer Trailer park every Memorial Day. Make sure though if you are going to go out on the beach to spend the day with your family or alone, you still need to get a Beach parking permit. This is so that you can take your vehicle onto the actual beach next to the place where you are staying so you can set up camp, the grill, the ice chest etc...There are Beach Patrol constables that are always on patrol and they WILL write you a ticket for violating this rule. It is always important that you plan ahead and buy your beach permit for the year. This way you can enjoy your beach experience the best way possible. Make sure you also don't bring glass bottles on the beach. They also write tickets for that. Have fun on your next vacation and thank you for visiting!

The Coast Guard in Port Aransas and other Cool Photos

We went on a fishing trip on the Island Queen. It costs $28.00 a person, and i caught some amazing shots of other boats, and even the coast guard. They were very nice on the island queen. There fishing equipment was adequate and we even got good bait that had mostly been frozen. It was awesome. My Grandfather even caught a baby shark. It was very cool. These are must see images i took these shots with a Kodak Slice 14mp Camera. I hope you like them.

Where to rent Golf Carts in Port Aransas Texas

While in Port Aransas it is great to go driving on the beach, however sometimes you don't want to use your car...Especially if your car isn't quite equipped enough to make it in the Sand without getting stuck. The best thing to do is to rent a golf cart. Not only can you get around the sand very easily, but you can also get to the quick stores and shops in the area without jumping in your hot car every time. I love to rent my Golf Carts from Nautical Wheelers. They have many great designs to choose from so you can be sure that you are the hippest nautical vehicle on the beach!

      Dolphin and Sea Turtle Watching at Port Aransas Texas

      This picture is amazing, i was able to get a close up shot of a beautiful sea turtle that was flaunting her loveliness right in front of me. It was a totally amazing site, here are some more shots that i captured of other animals we saw on our Port Aransas Adventure :-)

      The animals were beautiful and we even caught a glimpse of some dolphins that were strutting there stuff :-) They were riding the wake of the Oil Barge it looked like and it was truly something you would have to be there to see. A lot of people also fish off the stone wall to catch live bait so they can go out on there boats and catch even more monster fish :).

      Port Aransas Texas Sand Festival

      I love the sand Festival in Port Aransas Texas. Every year all of the creative sand castle designers come out on the same day to create marvels in the sand for everyone to enjoy! The little ones love the Sand Castle Festival and they cannot get enough of it. Many vendors also come out and setup on the beach so that you can shop, eat sausage on a stick, have a Margarita, or even eat some great ice cream!

      This is a picture of one of the creative sand castles i found. I can't believe how fast they build these castles. They use like a glue and sand mixture so that they stay formed for a very long time. This sand festival is truly one of a kind!

      Parrot Eyes Restaurant and Bar in South Padre Island Texas

      Parrot Eyes Restaurant & Bar is a great place to spend your evening! They have tons of stuff to do, no matter how you like to have fun :)  Here is what Parrot Eyes has to say...
      Parrot Eyes first opened in 1982 as a fruit smoothie and fajita taco stand at the "Jetties", now known as Isla Blanca Park, on the south end of South Padre Island. Later relocating to the north end of the Island on the bayside in 1988, we offered watersport rentals, outdoor dining, a full service bar, and Beautiful sunsets. Parrot Eyes made lifelong friends at the location for almost 20 years. In March 2009 we opened at our new home at 5801 Padre Blvd. We are happy to continue with some of the old traditions, and eager to begin new ones.
       The Parrot Eyes night life is truly amazing they have even made their own drink names, and they stay open until 2am! This is the ultimate party spot in South Padre Island! It is 2 stories and up stairs they have live music on some days, and Karaoke! Have fun at Parrot Eyes!
