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  ;-)
