Thanks for checking out our Captain Experiences blog and read on below for Rockport fishing reports from one of our Rockport fishing guides, Captain Larry:
"Big moon has dropped our tide out big time. Look for Speckled Trout over scattered grass and shell. Some Redfish on top water up against the shore but not many. The minor tidal period has been producing the best. Down South Lures Magic Grass, Salt Sassy, and Purple Rain all in the regular model, using a 1/8th - 3/16th jig head are getting the job done, as well as the topwater bait, Spook Jr." - Captain Larry
As Captain Larry mentioned, many of our Texas fishing guides report lower than usual tides along with hot water temps that are definitely common along the Texas Coastal Bend.
"Rockport area- Speckled Trout are holding over sand, shell and grass. The bite is inconsistent, so if you catch a few fish over that type of structure, stick to it! If you stay patient, they will be there. Redfish will hide out over pot holes and grass, so look for grass and scattered shell.
In terms of lures, Mirrolures Watermelon Red is working well." - Captain Larry
