Port Mansfield is recognized as one of the top fishing locations in Texas. To boaters and fishermen it offers an uncrowded access to the Laguna Madre, Padre Island and the Gulf of Mexico. By boat the Gulf Of Mexico is only nine miles away and once through the Port Mansfield Pass you’ll be able to go after the big ones: Sailfish, Marlin, Tarpon, Ling, Mackerel and Snapper. Port Mansfield is described as “one of the 10 best fishing areas in the country.” Speckled trout, redfish, flounder and other fine eating and sport fish are usually plentiful in the bay.
There are about 60 businesses in Port Mansfield, most dealing with fishermen. Accommodating the fishing and tourist activity there are three RV parks, two motels, many houses and condos available for rental, two marinas, two small stores, five boat storage barns, and many fishing guides.
The rental houses and condos fill as out-of-town owners visit their vacation homes and the fishermen spread out over the Laguna Madre and into the Gulf to catch their limit of fish.
