Capt. Bryce was the best!!! We had a great time with him and he really impressed me with his knowledge and expertise. We will definitely be reaching out to him again.

Capt. Skeeter knows where the fish are! Limited out on Red fish and caught and released more! Smallest fish was 25.5”. It was a great time, Highly recommend !!

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.

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

Ok the captain they set us up with was great, Captain Brody was a really nice guy who did his absolute best to make our trip enjoyable. However, captains experience was disappointing. When I contacted them I told them my husband was not comfortable in the water. That he had a stroke 2 years ago so was somewhat limited. Also exactly how much I could spin. Also that we specifically wanted to catch bigger fish. So we were setup with a captain whose boat was not more than a skiff. My husband never felt comfortable in the boat not to mention the places we went to fish were all shallow spots. We have already had done shallow parts EVERYWHERE! Again captain Brody was great he did his job. But captains experience should have listened and paired us with some one more suited to our nerds.

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.

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

While Rockport offers an abundance of riches for inshore Redfish and Speckled Trout fishing, we’d definitely recommend checking out our Port Aransas trips for deep sea fishing from Rockport TX. Just across Aransas Bay, Port Aransas offers immediate deep sea access for species like Tuna, Red Snapper, Wahoo, Mahi Mahi, Sailfish, and Marlin.

There are plenty of modern offshore boats available for charter. From multi-day bluewater excursions on flybrige sportfishers, bouncing around reefs on quick center consoles, and everything in between - Rockport deep sea charters have it all.
