Port Aransas Fishing Adventures
Texas' Coastal Bend region is a fisherman's paradise, with abundant opportunities to catch Redfish and Black Drum in the shallow backwater and marshes. On this charter fishing trip, guests can experience the thrill of reeling in these exciting and delicious fish, which are a blast to catch for any saltwater angler! The trip will begin with a short boat ride to the shallow waters off of Rockport, Texas, where the Redfish are known to congregate. Captain Chase has put in his days on the water, and will put his expert knowledge to work to get you hooked up on some champion fish! Once you're out on the water aboard Captain Chase's 22’ airboat, you'll have the chance to use a variety of techniques to catch the Redfish and Black Drum including sight casting with lures or bait and "soaking" cut shrimp or mullet on the bottom to create a commotion that will attract the fish. The shallow water makes for an exciting and challenging fishing experience, as the fish can be easily spooked and will require quick reflexes and a deft touch to catch. After a day of fishing, guests will return to the dock with their catch, which can be cleaned and filleted by the captain. Go home with a trophy, a full cooler, and a camera full of lifelong memories! Read More

We will be fishing from a 2020 Tournament Edition CCB Grande with updated GPS and fish finder. While fishing we will be targeting Redfish, Flounder, Sea Trout, and Black Drum. I will clean all fish for you after the day of fishing.

All oversized Trout and Redfish will be Catch, Photo, Release. I will supply all light tackle rods, reels, and lures needed for you to enjoy your day of fishing. You will NEED to bring your waders/boots. You will need to wear Sun Protection (Sunscreen, hat, sunglasses). I will provide water and Gatorade. You will need to provide your own snacks. Safety is a priority and there will be a First Aid kit and fire extinguisher on the boat if needed. Read More

Slow fishing but Captain Jim went above and beyond to find fish for us.
Craig C. with Jim G. of Rockport, Texas
Went out with Cpt. Jeff's guide Cpt. Gibson. Had an absolute blast. Couldn't recommend this group enough. Put us on some great fish and Cpt. Gibson had a great attitude. You won't be disappointed. First time using Captain Experience's and was very impressed with their communication and responsiveness. Will definitely book with them again.
Baker W. with Jeff J. of Rockport, Texas
Great experience with Captain Jim! Super friendly with tons of stories about his life experiences. Fishing was slow across the area the day we went, big changes in weather dropped the temps but got a couple of keeper reds and all kinds of other different fish which was fun to learn about and see. Highly recommend taking a trip with him he will keep you entertained for hours
Adam R. with Jim G. of Rockport, Texas
We had a great day. We limited out in less than 2 hours and to finish off the trip, he put us on 2 giant Bull Reds. He put us on plenty of fish for an outstanding morning. Thanks Alex

Captain Alex was a great captain and host. Alex went above and beyond to make sure we went home with fish and have a great experience. Very instructive and helpful while fishing. Overall was a great experience and time.
Roland C. with Alex C. of Port Aransas, Texas
This was our first time fishing in the intercoastal. We had a great time fishing with James. He put us on fish at the first stop and moved us on to the next spot as soon as the action slowed down. He provided quality live bait and showed us effective techniques. He took care of baiting, netting our catch and otherwise took great care of us. James was jovial, easy-going and incredibly patient with us. We had a blast.
Russ S. with James W. of Port Aransas, Texas
Jim was an amazing captain. He is very personal and friendly. The stories he can tell you are entertaining. Fishing was slow but he kept on trying to find fish for us. End of the day catch on redfish made our day.
Anna M. with Jim G. of Rockport, Texas
The fishing expedition with James in the bay waters of Port Aransas was great. A wonderful time spent for a father and son here on vacation. Look forward to doing this again.
Randal P. with James W. of Port Aransas, Texas
Alex put us right on the Red Fish on the first stop we hit our limit, then found some Black Drum! Could not have asked for a better guide! Will use him again!!
Chad R. with Alex C. of Port Aransas, Texas
Weeeelllll We didn't catch any keepers. Great boat ride, he took us to several spots. Country boy just relaxed. We baited our own reels.
Denise S. with Jim G. of Rockport, Texas
Had a great time, Jim had great stories and really enjoyed our time on the water.
David J. with Jim G. of Rockport, Texas
Went out during the busiest holiday time of each year in coastal bend, had a warm but nice day on the water. Capt. LL worked multiple spots to get us on keeper fish but we were coming in just under the slot multiple times. The smarter, older fish took off for the 4th of July. Guide worked as hard as he could and helpful as possible. Would go again with LL and bet would be more successful. "A bad day fishing is better than a good day at work!"
Stephen D. with LL B. of Rockport, Texas
LL was a perfect guide!! He was on time had plenty of live bait. He was great with my kids and knew the area and the fishing conditions well.
William D. with LL B. of Port Aransas, Texas
We had a great experience with Captain Jim. I would book him again should we find ourselves back in RockPort. I would recommend Captain Experiences to other.
Rodney T. with Jim G. of Rockport, Texas
James was a great Captain for our half day morning adventure! He was able to accommodate the entire group finding us a second guide. We are very appreciative for him and his partner getting us out on the water on such a busy weekend.
Angel P. with James W. of Port Aransas, Texas
We had a great time with captain Tommy put on the water! He put us on some awesome fish, had everything we needed ready to go, cleaned our fish for us and all around great service, will definitely book with him again
