Captain Russ Wheeler of Coastal Rod Bender fishes the Coastal Bend Area of Texas, covering famous fishing grounds such as Rockport, Port Aransas, Aransas Pass, and Corpus Christi. He prides himself in achieving exceptional results both for beginners and experienced anglers, and families with young children are always welcome.
You will be fishing aboard a comfortable 23 ft Haynie Cat center console that offers an extremely stable and dry ride. Powered by a 250 HP Mercury Pro XS engine, the boat runs fast to the fishing spots, and the super quiet Minn Kota Trolling Motor will allow you to get up close to the fish and perfect your cast.
Coastal Rod Bender specializes in sight casting, bay, flats, and wade fishing. They use live and/or fresh dead bait, and/or artificial lures depending on your preference and how the fish are biting on the day. You may do some drift fishing, letting your bait float naturally in the water, or you can practice sight fishing, throwing your bait or lures out towards the fish.
Don’t forget to purchase a valid Texas saltwater fishing license prior to your trip. Coastal Rod Bender offers a 10% discount to active military, veterans, and wounded warriors.
