About- The Beach Angler

Hey, welcome The Beach Angler! All things Surf Fishing, Fishing, hunting, and with the outdoors mixed in from time to time as well. Thanks for checking it out. Hope you find it interesting and informative and maybe even entertaining. 😉


I grew up in the deep south Texas brush country in the town of Kingsville. Home of the King Ranch and about 30 minutes from the trophy speckled Trout mecca of Baffin Bay. About a hours drive from the Padre Island National Seashore with its 60 miles of beach front.

I was very fortunate that I grew up in a family that loved the outdoors and had a dad that let me tag along on many a hunting and fishing trip from a very early age. Needless to say, I have a life long (50+ years) obsession with the outdoors and am particularly fond of saltwater fishing and the beach.

What is The Beach Angler About?

I started this blog to share stories, strategies, tips and techniques with like-minded outdoors men from around the world. Particularly those just starting out in their outdoors adventures.

I will be sharing gear reviews, fishing and hunting trips and destinations, stories of success and, yes even failures, Maybe we can learn from each other and increase our enjoyment of fishing and the outdoors. Enjoy the journey, it is a quick trip looking back. And please, always try to leave it cleaner than you found it

If you ever need a hand or have any questions, comments or suggestions, feel free to leave them below in the comment section and I will be more than happy to help you out.

All the best and good fishing,

Rex McMahon
