This is a 6 hour bait fishing trip. We will leave the launch around 6 am and will return around 12pm. 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. I strive for conservation of the local fishery therefore since the 2021 freeze even though regulations have returned to normal, I have a rule of 3 Trout maximum of 15"-20" to be kept. 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

    I booked a last minute trip with captain Jim Garrison from the captains experience site while visiting my parents in San Antonio. I’m glad I picked him, within five minutes of anchoring I caught my first red fish and kept catching fish all morning. He is very knowledgeable and made it a fun trip for me. We shared stories and had some laughs too. For a fun day of fishing in Rockport, I recommend booking with captain Jim.

    Capt Jon was great! He agreed to go out, even though it was so windy and cold and made sure we had a fun time, even if we didn’t expect to have much luck given the conditions. We were victorious over the gulls however and got several great fish!

    Capt. Jim took out my dad, brother in law, and myself for a 6 hour trip. It started off a little slow but he put us on fish and we were able to land some nice reds, black drum, and even a flounder. Had a great trip and got to spend quality time with my dad and brother in law. Great trip over all.
