About Your Guide

Captain Tom has been fishing the Rockport area since he was 16 years old with his grandpa who taught him most of his tricks and trades, such as drifting across the Estes flats for Redfish and Trout. From then on, Captain Tom has been hooked on saltwater fishing. Fishing is a passion of his and he's always willing to help and teach others so they can enjoy this great sport. He's also a firm supporter of taking kids fishing as he believes there's no better bond than out on the water with your children.

What a great trip! With the threat of a downpour Capt. Tom decided to push forward and I am so glad we did! The weather was overcast and at times a little drizzly. However, the bay was perfect and smooth. When we arrived at the area we were going to ...Read More

Tom’s boat and equipment is 1st class , he has knowledge of the bay and where to fine the fish. Tom is one of the best guide trips I’ve been on . I’m planning on coming back again and again. Thanks Tom for a great day.
