If you're looking for a real deal saltwater flyfishing adventure, look no further than Captain Dylan Mendoza. Dylan lives and breaths flyfishing and moves all around texas to follow the best fishing in season....Read More
For his saltwater trips, Captain Dylan usually runs out of Rockport, Texas. However, dependent on various situations and/or time of year—we may fish as far south as Aransas Pass and as far north as Port O’ Connor.
Primarily, we will be sight casting for redfish in shallow water with the occasional shot at Black Drum, Speckled Trout, Flounder & Sheepshead. In the spring and summer, when the tides are up, we will have opportunities at Bull Reds and Jack Crevalle in the bay.
In terms of gear, Captain Dylan encourages you to bring your own gear, but can also supply you with everything you if need be. If you would prefer to bring your own rod, a 7-8 wt rod with floating line is ideal. On occasion, a larger setup (10-12 wt) may be needed for over Slot Bull Reds, Big Jacks, and even Tarpon. You can go over all these details with Dylan in the days leading up to your trip, you can let Captain Dylan know what you have and what you don't have and he can fill in the gaps.
Dylan will supply his own hand-tied flies specifically crafted based on the depth and clarity of the water for the given day. Simple shrimp and crab patterns in various different colors and sizes are go-to's for the texas coast. Variations of the Clouser Minnow, Tarpon Toad, Borski Sliders, Seaducers, Kwan, Crimp, & Gurglers in different sizes (2,4,6) and colors (tan, white, purple, chartreuse, pink) are all great patterns you'll have on board as well.
Captain Dylan provides ice, water, and coolers for your adventure. He recommends that you bring polarized sunglasses, your Texas fishing License, hat, sunscreen, boat shoes or non-black soled shoes, rain gear, and a lunch for full-day trips
