Captain Jon Mahan Hunting & Fishing Rockport

Experience some of Texas’ finest nearshore fishing in the Aransas Bay complex. Captain Jon Mahan Hunting & Fishing is waiting to take you on an exciting adventure to fill the boat. Capt. Jon grew up on the water and still maintains the same passion he did as a boy. He promises to share his enthusiasm with you in the hope of getting you just as hooked as he is.

His 21’ Shallow Sport center console does exactly what it says in the name. Light and agile, and with the help of a wireless trolling motor, she can navigate even the shallowest of waters. You’ll creep up quietly on your prey before the rod-bending action can begin. Thanks to the 150 HP Evinrude motor, you’ll whizz across the bays, going from sweet spot to sweet spot at speeds of up to 35 knots.

Using live bait and artificial lures, you’ll mainly be flats fishing with the latest rods and reels. Everything you need for a productive day on the water is provided, so get ready for some thrilling fishing.

Inshore, you’ll target some huge Black Drum, monster Speckled Trout, and delicious Mangrove Snapper. While fishing in the flats you will be going going after one of the nearshore’s most prized fish: Redfish. These tough-fighting beasts are among the most popular table fare, too. Catch yourself one of these and you’ll be the most popular person around the dinner table.

Capt. Jon will clean and fillet your catch at the end of the day, so you’re in for a treat as soon as you get home. All you need to do before coming is grab your Texas fishing license and get booking! Come aboard Captain Jon Mahan Hunting & Fishing to discover some of the world’s best inshore fishing.

Saltwater fishing is my passion. I grew up in Kingsville, Texas fishing Baffin Bay as a child. I now live in Victoria and love to fish in the bays around Seadrift and Port O'Connor.
