Top Types of Rockport, Texas Fishing Trips
Capt. Brody Jones took us out on a cool windy day on St Charles Bay. He tried his best to make the rough ride as pleasant as possible although my wife and I did damp from the spray. Brody put us on a spot where we limited out on black drum. I did catch one 26 inch redfish and we release several undersized ones. He cleaned the catch per our request and we will be having redfish on the half shell for birthday dinner tonight. Brody did a great job overall and we be glad to refer him to anyone.

Captain Kenny was a great guide and made our first private charter as memorable as it can get. He is very friendly and helpful during the entire trip. I was able to talk to him over the phone prior to our trip and he advised me of the fishing and told us to get the bonus tag for the Red Drums. He also told me over the phone that we need to get out at 0545 and not at 0630 to get the bite and we will be done by 0900. We set out of the harbor at 0550 and was done with our tag limit before 0900. Captain Kenny was exceedingly helpful with setting up our rigs, with providing proper bait, and the local knowledge of the area. We actually had to call it quits early because we were both beat up at 1000 after getting 15 red drums on boat (4 keepers as per our tags and bonus tags, and 11 catch and release) and 22 smaller fishes. My wife and I will be booking Captain Kenny again as soon as we can.

Was a great trip, will definetly be going again. He put us on the fish and kept us on them. We caught and released close to 50 reds between the four of us. Caught a couple oversize and kept some for dinner. He was awesome and helped us out every step of the way. He fillet the fish for us too. Taught us how to catch the fish also. Great experience.

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.
Johnny R. with Jim Garrison of Rockport, Texas
4 of us went out with Jim Garrison on july 9 after very heavy rains. I'm talking 20 inches. The whole town was flooded but he still managed to get us on the water. Jim did his absolute best to try and put us on the fish. We fished Rockport to Port Aransas but just couldn't find the fish. The weather was great. While we wernt catching any limits of fish He kept us amused with all his stories, Lots of laughter. I would recommend him to others. Donald Shellenbarger Victoria, Tx

Everything You Need to Know About Rockport, Texas Fishing
Rockport Texas Fishing Charters
Rockport Texas fishing guides offer top-tier inshore fishing for Speckled Trout, Redfish, Black Drum, Sheepshead, and more. With access to everything from Matagorda all the way down to Baffin Bay, it would take more than a lifetime of fishing to thoroughly fish these waters. Rockport inshore fishing charters are consistently ranked as some of the best in the United States.
Rockport Inshore Fishing Charters
The Texas Coastal Bend, with Rockport at its heart, is an inshore angler’s paradise, and our Rockport fishing guides hold the keys! Crystal-clear waters abound, providing opportunities for wade fishing with live bait or artificial lures, drift fishing from your captain’s boat, and some of the best saltwater fly fishing around.
If you are after giant bull redfish or massive speckled trout, head to Rockport from late summer to fall when these beasts come pouring in. If you are looking to elevate your fishing trip, trying tackling Rockport reds on a fly. Nearby, Baffin Bay is responsible for the state record speckled trout and redfish and could be the ticket to setting a new personal record.
This ecosystem is teeming with wildlife that inhabit these coastal waters and the surrounding barrier islands including Mustang Island, San Jose Island, and Matagorda Island. Aransas National Wildlife Refuge is home to more migratory bird species than any other national park in the US. Book a trip in the late fall months to catch a glimpse of the rare Whooping Crane on your way to catch your own not-so-rare Texas Redfish!
Rockport Deep Sea and Offshore Fishing Charters
