Rockport Whack

NEW
24 ft 1 - 4 People From $138 / person

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

Rockport Redfish And Black Drum

NEW
22 ft 1 - 5 People From $140 / person

This will be a full day of wade fishing the Rockport Tx bay systems. We will use a variety of different Artifical lures from soft plastics to top waters primarily targeting trophy trout and redfish. I will provide all the tackle as far as lures go. But you are more than welcome and encouraged to bring your favorite and most confident baits. You will be required to bring all your own gear consisting of waders and boots, wading belts with pliers and stringers and last but not least your own rods. I do recommend each customer bring 2 rods incase one accidentally breaks or has a malfunction. I can provide beginners rods and reels for an additional cost of $50 per rod. One more thing that I hope won’t be a deal breaker but since the major freeze a few years ago I along with a lot of the Texas guides do “Not” allow clients to keep any trout. Our trout fishery especially here in the rockport area took a major hit during the freeze. With that being said, It is coming back and there is plenty of trout action to have but if we want it to have a chance to get back to the way it was and hopefully even better and long lasting we have to continue to let them go and grow. Like I said I really hope that isn’t a deal breaker. Read More

    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.

    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

    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.

    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.
