Why fishing with Osprey Cruises is fun
Are you an expert angler? Are you a novice or looking for a new family experience? We provide fishing services for all skill levels, for individuals, families, groups, and couples. When you join the Osprey team for a fishing trip in South Padre Island, TX, you get a complete package that includes instruction from our crew and your rod and reel, bait, and tackle. It’s a first class experience, and all you’ll need is a hat, some sunscreen and a small measure of fisherman’s luck.

The Osprey and Osprey 2 fish year-round in the Gulf of Mexico for your pleasure. We offer a variety of trips, whether drift fishing for kingfish, shark, or dorado or bottom fishing for red snapper, grouper, or amberjack, and we will strive to make your experience enjoyable. We also offer fishing in the Laguna Madre and jetties area on our Bay King and Buccaneer bay fishing boats. These nearby fishing holes produce a great number of different species from 12 inch whiting to 4 foot tarpon. You never know what you’ll bring up!

Sustainable fishing practices

Sustainable fishing practices

We practice catch
and release conservation!

Help us make fishing a durable recreation. We support sustainable fishing practices so that you, and generations to follow, may enjoy the opportunity to fish by catching only what we need and releasing what we don’t.

All billfish and other gamefish (tarpon, mako, etc) will be freed as soon as possible. All non-edible fish (jack crevalle, bonita, etc) will be released at boatside unless used for bait.

Any and all fish that the catching fisherman does not intend to clean and eat will also be released before gaffing or landing. At this time, we allow the gaffing and landing of some shark species, but encourage fishermen to release these fish as well after enjoying the sport of playing them.

We are not in the business of killing fish. Our purpose is to provide you with the opportunity to experience the thrill of fishing and savor the taste of fresh-caught fish while preserving the species for future generations.
