My name is Jeff Hartung Jr., I am a USCG licensed Captain and a Texas Parks and Wildlife licensed fishing guide. I grew up fishing along the South Texas Gulf Coast, and have become very familiar with the area waters and fish species. I became a fishing guide to pass along my knowledge, experience and skills to others who enjoy fishing. I have been fishing the South Padre Island area exclusively for many years, both offshore and in the bay. I also specialize in targeting Tarpon around the jetties and along the beach of South Padre.
My offshore boat is a 28’ Pursuit Express with twin Yanmar Diesels. The boat is very smooth, dry and eats up the offshore slop we can get down here certain time of the year. It has spray curtains around the front to keep you dry and warm if the weather turns rough or nasty while out fishing. Its large enough to fish 4 people comfortably and could fit up to 6 people. For the women, the boat does have a toilet inside the cabin if needed.
