trip description for State Water Adventure in Freeport

Head out to Freeport, Texas if you’re in for a true fishing adventure and pay a visit to Captain Rodney. Captain Rodney will show you various reefs and wrecks, all brimming with quality fish and surrounded by beautiful nature. Fishing in this nearshore zone with Captain Rodney is a great trip for anyone who hasn’t been offshore fishing and wants to wet their feet, but also great for the experienced fisherman who doesn't want to be pounded by the surf that hauling 50 miles out demands! Captain Rodney's crew will help you chase Trophy Bull Red (Red Drum), Shark, Kingfish, Spanish Mackerel, Red Snapper (seasonally), Catfish, and more, depending on the time of year. You might even get a surprise and catch a Ling or a Mahi Mahi. For these 5-hour trips, Captain Rodney uses his 27’ Center Console which provides a truly great fishing experience! These trips are great for families - Captain Rodney loves teaching little ones about the various species that call the Gulf of Mexico home. Make sure to bring a valid Texas fishing license as well as snacks and drinks of your choice (no glass). Captain Rodney will provide the rest - rods, reels, tackle, and an icebox for your day’s catch. Enjoy your day on the water with Captain Rodney! Read More

trip description for Lower Laguna Madre Adventure in Port Isabel

If you've been looking to do some classic Texas fishing and find a new personal best, look no further than this trip with Captain Alana! She's an expert angler and knows exactly how to put you on some big fish in the Laguna Madre, one of the best bodies of water here on the Texas coast. The Laguna is a large, shallow saltwater inlet that's protected from the tides and waves, making it a perfect environment for Redfish, Speckled Trout, and Flounder—the three most popular inshore gamefish in the state! Captain Alana also runs trips to the Port of Brownsville where you can chase several different species while seeing Naval ships being decommissioned such as the USS Kitty Hawk. You'll also be able to chase Cobia, Mangrove Snapper, and even the occasional Texas Tarpon! No matter what species you're aiming to catch, Captain Alana will put you on 'em and make sure you have the right tackle and gear to stack fish in the cooler. Generally, you'll be fishing shrimp on popping corks, which really attract big bites. Be ready, because you never know which bite is going to be your personal record! Captain Alana runs these inshore trips from her 25' Moody bay boat, a perfect shallow-draft vessel for this kind of water. She's powered by a brand-new 250-HP Suzuki, so you'll have no problem getting out to where the fish are. She also sports PowerPole for easy maneuvering in shallow water. Alana provides everything you need for a great trip, so just bring some sunscreen, a cooler with some snacks and drinks, and your Texas saltwater fishing license and you'll be good to go! Read More

    Matt S. with Cliff F. of Port Isabel, Texas

  • ★★★★★
    Captain Alana was awesome! Very professional, had the boat clean and gear ready to go as soon as we got to the dock we were off. Boat was good size had plenty of room for everyone to walk around. Even took us close to the launch site to see the Space X Starship. She was constantly on the phone with other guides trying to find the best bite possible. We caught Speckled Trout, large Catfish and saw a bunch of large red drums but even hitting them in the head with the bait they wouldn't bite... Had a weather change and rockets going off in the area so may have had something to do with it. But we were the only boat that day really catching anything. I would highly recommend Captain Alana. Will decently book her for future visits to go Tarpon Fishing!!!

    Bret S. with Alana S. of Port Isabel, Texas

    My boys had a great time fishing. Thank you Captain Rodney!

    Christina . with Rodney C. of Freeport, Texas

  • ★★★★★
    Captain Juan was great and we had a fun day on the boat! It was grandparents, parents and 8 year old twins so great for all ages. Juan was so patient with the kids and very attentive to making sure everyone was always baited and having fun fishing. We are complete beginners and he was super informative on what we were catching and teaching the boys how to fish. There’s no shade or restroom on the boat so plan accordingly with sunscreen and proper clothes and a bathroom break before the trip. We brought snacks and drinks with us which was great to have on hand. We caught a variety of fish even if not all were keepers. All in all it was a perfect day out on the water.

    Tiffany H. with Juan R. of Port Isabel, Texas

  • ★★★★★
    We had an amazing time. Rodney and Ethan were not only very helpful and professional, they were friendly and made the trip enjoyable. When the fish we were catching were too small to keep Rodney took us to another spot where we caught larger fish and 3 sharks! I cannot wait to come back. Maybe this will be a yearly trip for us from now on. Great Captain and First Mate.

    Tanesha M. with Rodney C. of Freeport, Texas

  • ★★★★★
    The guide was not inviting. He never introduced himself and had no concern for our well being. We had two guests who were sea sick and he never showed any concern. While he did finally agree to bring them back to shore, his lack of respect for us as customers and human beings was not professional.

    Dustin P. with Rodney H. of Freeport, Texas

  • ★★★★★
    Our day with Cliff was great. Our group was two dads with 2 seven year olds. The kids had the best time. They each caught a few fish and he was incredibly patient and kind with them as they learned. We will be back.
