South Padre Island has some of the best inshore fishing on the U.S Gulf Coast, let alone in Texas. Captain Phil Hill is the owner and operator of Captain Phil Hill’s Guide Service, a South Padre Island local guide with more than 40 years of local experience. He’s intimately familiar with the Laguna Madre fisheries, and has the knowledge needed to provide your group with an action packed day on the water! Captain Phil Hill caters to young families, first time anglers, veterans, and everyone in between! One of the unique attributes of Captain Phil Hill’s Guide Service is no two trips are ever the same. Your Captain will be in touch with your group to learn more about your expectations, limitations, and preferences. After collaborating with your group, he’ll cater your day on the water to suit your needs! Captain Phil will also let you know the species you’ll likely catch, but more importantly, what you can NOT expect to catch. With 40 years of local knowledge, even your Captain can’t make Marlin, Red Snapper, and Mahi Mahi show up in the Laguna Madre! Throughout the year, the species you CAN expect to catch on your fishing trip with Captain Phil Hill’s Guide Service are Flounder, Red Drum, Snook, Speckled Trout, Mangrove Snapper, Black Drum, and other exciting species found inshore. Your Laguna Madre fishing adventure starts when you step aboard Captain Phil’s 18ft flats boat that’s designed to fish shallow waters that prevent most other boats from entering. This means the waters Capt. Phil will guide you to experience far less fishing pressure, meaning these fish can fully mature! A deposit is required to reserve your date with Captain Phil Hill’s Guide Service, book in advance to avoid disappointment!

Half Day Trip (AM) - Bay Fishing
We had a good time with Capt. Phil Hill. He is extremely personable and very friendly. He took us to several spots as we wanted to fish for both trout and redfish. We caught several trout but none of them were keepers. But hey, a day on the bay is always a good day with an added bonus if the fish are biting. He’s been doing this for a long time and has some great stories to tell. I would highly recommend him as your guide!!!!
