Here in South Padre Island we are blessed with clear water and endless flats teaming with bait and featuring large Trout, Redfish, and Tarpon. You might not be aware, but we are located on Latitude 26 which is the same as Key West. This means our year round temperature is nearly the same as Key West. Our flats fishing can be amazing and great for the avid fly fisherman.
While you might love the thrill of being on the water, with the sun on your face, and wind at your back, we know the reason why you step onto our Rampage 33 is to catch fish—and the bigger the better.
