Offshore Rig Fishing Charters from South Padre Island
Deep Sea Yellowfin Tuna Fishing Trips
The Perdido Rig is a well known area for great tuna fishing. We offer special fishing charters to the Perdidio Spar located 120 miles north of South Padre Island, Texas. This fihing trip can last up to 36 hours. The rig is in about 8,000 feet of water in the area known as the Perdido Fold Belt. We mainly target yellowfin tuna (Thunnus albacares). The yellowfin tuna is one of the largest tuna species, reaching weights of over 300 pounds (136 kg) and fished for mainly in deep offshore waters. We also catch a number of other fish species here too, including wahoo, dorado, marlin and sailfish.
