Fishing Charters Near St. Charles Bay
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
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

Recent Reviews of Captain Experiences
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
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
The boys had a good time, they mentioned it was right after a large tournament so it was a little slow on the fishing but they had a good time .
Gustavo V. with Randy S. of Aransas Pass, Texas
Capt. Randy was fantastic. He put us on some great fish while others were striking out.
