Lower Laguna Madre

Getaway Lodge is located on the north side of the Port Mansfield Harbor in Port Mansfield, Texas.  We have immediate access to miles of crystal clear water, white sand beaches, the grass covered bottoms of the famed lower Laguna Madre, and world class offshore fishing.  We offer bay fishing and offshore and nearshore  fishing and can put together almost any combination of fishing to make your trip with us a first class adventure.

At Getaway Lodge, we are proactive advocates of fisheries conservation. We strictly comply with all catch limits and size restrictions in hopes to assure a future fishery for our grandchildren!  Please practice catch and release.

Fishing Options

Bay Fishing

Wade/Drift Fishing

We offer both wade and drift fishing adventures on the pristine waters of the Lower Laguna Madre. For those that like to get out of the boat and stalk the flats, our guides will put you in the perfect position to wade stretches of salt teaming with gamefish. If fishing from the boat is your thing, our guides will make sure to put you within casting distance of a variety of hungry specimens. Depending on the conditions and what you’re comfortable with, our guides may recommend doing one over the other, in regards to what they feel will produce the most success.

Wade/Drift Target Species

Speckled Trout, Redfish, Flounder, Black Drum

Fly Fishing

The gin clear waters of the Lower Laguna Madre provide fly anglers with an abundance of sight casting opportunities over beautiful sand and seagrass flats. Catching fish on the fly is a sporting adventure, and our guides will stealthily pole you into position to enjoy some breathtaking, light tackle action.

Fly Fishing Target Species

Speckled Trout, Redfish, Flounder, Black Drum

Offshore Fishing

Explore the deep great blue Texas style. As a well kept secret, Port Mansfield has the closest deep water to the Texas Gulf Coast providing us with world class offshore fishing without the long boat ride endured elsewhere at other locales along the Gulf Coast. The offshore fishery of South Texas is teaming with the most sought after game fish in the world and Getaway Lodge can take you there.

Located only nine miles from the Gulf of Mexico via the East Cut, Getaway Lodge is the perfect place for testing your strength against offshore leviathans. You can depart our docks and be trolling for offshore game fish within minutes. Our guides can put you on limits of Texas State Water Red Snapper less than five miles offshore, year round. We also have one of the best Tuna fisheries right in our backyard. From Spanish Mackerel to Billfish, Getaway Lodge has you covered.

Offshore Target Species

Red Snapper, Wahoo, Cobia, Kingfish, Blackfin Tuna, Yellowfin Tuna, Bluefin Tuna, Blue Marlin, Sailfish

Red Snapper Options:

Depending on the weather conditions and the size of your party, we offer Red Snapper fishing trips both out of sea worthy bay boats and a 46 foot Bertram sport fishing yacht.

Trolling & Tuna Trips:

Trolling trips to pursue Billfish, Wahoo, Kingfish, and other species are also available, along with trips geared towards targeting Tuna.
