Fish with the Best in Port Aransas

Those who book with Beacon Charter Services will find they can easily customize their angling excursion to meet their personalized needs and wants. They’ll also love the opportunity to fish with the very best at their side! Beacon Charter Services is operated by Captain Charles Bujan who is licensed through the United States Coast Guard as well as the State of Texas. This Port Aransas native has family roots in the area dating back to the late 1800s when Mustang Island was first being established by settlers. Time on the water has long been a family trade as well with Bujan’s father, grandfather, and uncles taking to the water as boatmen and fishermen alike. As a result, Captain Bujan has both a deep respect and knowledge of the waters that surround Port Aransas ranging from the bay to the flats. He’s well-versed in the many fish species that call these waters home and is passionate about helping others get out on the water and enjoy the experience of fishing in this area as well.

What You Might Reel In

Whether you book a half-day charter or a full day of fun—year-round, those who partner with Beacon Charter Services are likely to reel in something exciting! Winter visitors will be just in time to cast a line in pursuit of trout, black drum, or redfish alike. Sheepshead are also prominent in the waters this time of year. Adventurers who are heading this way in the summer will find the waters teeming with the likes of king fish—particularly near the jetties.
