Dolphin docs in port a is a good charter i stay on the island by corpus its like 15 miles or so south of port a all of that area is good imo. Bob hall pier is very good fishing should be catching spanish macks and kings any time also good sheap head and reds!! Red dot pier on the s.p.i.d is good trout and red fish and black drum fishing also as far as diesel man its all but 4 a gallon and prolly is 4 a gallon in some places

Some people are like slinkies they are completely useless but they still bring a smile to your face when you push them down a set of stairs

if you need any more help let me know i live in corpus, diesel is about 3.85 to 3.95 all around town, depending on what type of fishing you are wanting to do bay fishing? or offshore?

I recommend Port A also!!! Great for the family. You can rent a condo on the beach, camp or there are hotels (big chain and mom and pop). Fishing.....its awesome here. Offshore....just do a big charter from Fishermans Wharf or Deap Sea Headquarters. For inshore there are numerous guides here that are good. The best part is.....around here its almost a sure thing to bring in some fish!!! Already mentioned, but its been very windy but the guides have still been doing good.

You can't loose with 22's..........
