Hop on board with Captain Tom and get ready for an action-packed day of fishing around Rockport!...Read More
Captain Tom will help you target Redfish, Black Drum, and Speckled Trout. You have the choice of fishing with live or dead bait but can always fish with artificial lures if you’re up for the challenge.
For these trips, Captain Tom uses his 21’ Shoalwater that’s powered by a 250 Evinrude engine. The boat is equipped with a GPS and fishfinder unit along with all the safety gear you’ll need for a safe and productive trip. Expect a smooth, comfortable, and dry ride to the fishing grounds.
These trips can host up to 4 people, so make sure you bring some good company! Captain Tom will provide all rods, reels, and tackle. He even provides live bait. All you need to bring is a valid Texas Fishing License, any drinks and snacks you’d like (preferably no glass), and Captain Tom will take care of the rest!
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 fish the Capt. found the perfect positions along the flats. The kids had never caught any decent fish before and they had the time of their lives even though they are typical kids and not patient at all. It took one fish on the line and they were hooked! Tom had several places already in mind where we would fish and it did not disappoint. Just a little observation from me. The Capt. knows his fishing and gear. Don’t let the one year experience sway you. He has fished all of his life and only guided for a year. He knows what he is doing. He is calm and has a blast helping you get those fish. I myself grew up on the coast and have fished all my life too but let the man take the lead. His boat, his gear and his knowledge. You pay for an experience so let him do what he knows and give you that experience. We had a great time and will book every time we go down. We also gave a tip. We had a great time for an amazing price so we wanted to show our appreciation!
Tom took me and my two boys (10 & 8) out for a half-day trip leaving from Rockport. We had a really good time. He was very nice, and he worked great with the boys. He even had a cooler of waters and iced tea for us! Plenty of bait ...Read More stocked for our outing (we were out for trout and redfish). Great overall experience. Highly recommend.
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.
Great trip, I would highly recommend it! Captain Tom is very patient and an excellent teacher. I caught lots of fish and had a great time doing it! Looking forward to another trip with him soon…
