About Your Trip

Climb aboard with Captain Jim Garrison of Redfish Rope Charters and experience an amazing day of inshore fishing!

Captain Jim launches these trips out of Seadrift or Port O’Connor, depending on the weather, the season, or where the fish are biting harder. On these 4, 6, or 8-hour adventures, you’ll be reelin’ in some Redfish but Captain Jim loves to target Trout as well. You might also reel in some Flounder and Sheepshead.

You’ll need to bring a valid Texas Fishing License with a saltwater stamp as well as some food and drinks. Other than that, Captain Jim will take care of the rest. He’ll provide all rods, reels, tackle, and bait. He will also provide ice and an ice chest for your day’s catch. These trips can accommodate four people, so make sure you bring some good company!

Come on down and make some memories with Captain Jim and Redfish Rope Charters!

About Your Guide

Captain Jim Garrison offers Rockport fishing charters for Redfish, Speckled Trout, and Flounder. Captain Jim was born in Mission, Texas and grew up calf roping and team roping on horseback in Kyle, Texas on a 3,000 acre working cow/calf ranch. He's brought that same competitive spirit to his fishing charters for 17 years and counting.

Captain Jim fell in love with saltwater fishing about 20 years ago and never looked back. He fishes the inshore bays and backwaters of the Texas Coastal Bend from Port O'Connor and Seadrift, Texas to Rockport, from Espiritu Santo Bay to Aransas Bay.

Captain Jim hosts trips aboard his 22' Triton Bay Flight Tunnel Hull with a Mercury 200 HP outboard motor. His boat is loaded with all the required safety gear, including adult and child life jackets, a first aid kit, and a fire extinguisher.

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

Captain Jim not only took us on short notice, but he Made our trip very enjoyable with his outgoing personality. We were catching fish and laughing almost the entire time. I would definitely recommend Captain Jim to friends and family.

My wife and I just had our third trip with Capt. Jim, and it was amazing as always! We caught redfish all day and had a blast doing it. The fishing is only part of the fun though - Capt. Jim is a great person, and we love being on the water with him. We will always use Capt. Jim. He is the only guide for us!

We fished with Captain Jim Garrison for the first time in July and had a very successful fishing trip. We headed out early that morning and anchored off about 6:30 and began to fish. After landing a couple hard head, and two trout, the red drum’s started to bite. We were pulling them in faster than we could get rebated, it was a blast. My son and I along with my two buddies had our limit in about 2 hrs. The largest red being around 32 - 34 in. brought in by my 5 year old and I after battling it for about 8 minutes. Captain Jim was the best guide I’ve had and we’re looking forward to taking many more trips with him in the future.
