  Fishing on the Jetty at Isla Blanca Park
by Stephen-KarenConn

Where can you go that you can fish all day and have the restaurant of your choice cook your catch to your specifications. Lots of folks do it every day here at South Padre Island. There are approximately 600 different species, but the most commonly caught fish are the red or black durm, spotted sea trout and southern flounder in the bay, and tarpon, red snapper, king mackerel, amberjack and pompano in the gulf. More than 60 local charter companies and personal guides stand ready to take you on a fishing trip to remember, or you may cast your line from shore as these pictured are doing.
