Boys Saltwater Fishing Camp

 

The Outdoor Texas Saltwater Camp is located at Bluff’s Landing, just west of Corpus Christi on the Laguna Madre.  The facilities, the activities, and the staff provide an experience that Campers will never forget. No Outdoor Texas Camp has created more excitement or anticipation, or grown faster than the Saltwater Fishing Camps. The variety of activities offered, and the success of the Camp activities has been remarkable. The decisions to utilize local Captains and other local Professionals have given the Campers the best experience possible.

SALTWATER CAMP ACTIVITIES SELECTION

Outdoor Texas Camp is thrilled to be able to add some special activities to our Saltwater Camps.  In addition to the exciting every day Activities the campers take part in above.  Campers choose 1 of the  3 Activities below to be included in their regular weekly schedule. They can also choose a 2nd Activity for an additional fee of $150.

The choices are:

1.  Bay Fishing Trip: Fish with a local professional guide. This activity has produced great stringers of fish each and every year. (4 campers per trip)

2.  Overnight Floating Cabin:  This is a great activity–always very popular. This overnight trip on a Floating Cabin, with lights shining in the water, draws fish from the surrounding area and produces 75-100 Trout and Redfish per night.  We have to literally make the Boys catch a little shut-eye. (4 campers per trip)

3.  Padre Island National Shoreline Surf Trip: This camp will be put together for an evening of tackle rigging, catching bait, and a beach dinner. Evening and late night fishing for sharks and other species that cruise the surf in search of an easy meal. Sunrise surf fishing will be the activity as the sun comes up over the gulf.  (5 campers per trip and will be subject to weather).

** Late night Flounder Gigging Trip with a Professional Guide IS NOW PART OF THE BASE PRICE OF SALTWATER CAMP: This trip begins at dark.  For the next 4+ hours the Campers will cruise the Flats for flounder and black drum. Use of a Gig will be taught by the guide and each camper will have the opportunity to learn and enjoy this unique skill. Full stringers are the norm. (4 campers per trip)
