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.
