Puesta Del Sol Bayhouse.
This waterfront house is located on the bayside, just down the
street from Blackbeard's Restaurant. The property has a lighted
fishing pier. One of South Padre's best kept secrets is
that this is one of the best night fishing spots on the entire
island! (Guests have attested to this...) This is a great location
for a fishing getaway or family vacation! The spacious concrete
patio has fantastic views of the bay, and is ideal for a sunset
Upstairs/downstairs units are adjoined by an interior staircase and
can be rented separately or as one unit!See description of upstairs
and downstairs units below.
The fishing!: From the dock, you can catch trout, redfish, and
snook. At night, you can fish with live shrimp under the lights.
This is most effective when you can actually see the trout swimming
in and out of the lights. Redfish are usually caught at the dark
edges of the light or directly under the pier. Snook are usually
caught under the pier or around the pilings. The best way to fish
with live shrimp is to "free shrimp", where you only tie a treble
hook to your line and nothing else, and let the shrimp swim freely
under the lights. You can also fish on the bottom with a lead
weight and shrimp, finger mullet, or live croaker. This is a great
way to catch redfish or occasionally black drum. The best time to
catch trout under the lights is when the tide is coming in strong.
The house is right on a channel, and schools of trout move through
the channel with the rising or falling tide. I have
been told that fishing on the bottom works well sometimes during the
middle of the day.
We stayed at the Bayhouse in mid September. We enjoyed it so much that we plan to return next year. Our primary goal was to fish and that's what we did. The fishing was great and exceeded or expectations. The unit was very nice and included all of the comforts of home. The bed and bedding could use some attention.
Overall, I would recommend Bayhouse.
