CCC Guide Service invites you to experience just how great inshore fishing out of Rockport, Texas can be. Captain Cody Coulston is very flexible depending on what his guests want from their fishing experience, as well as weather, tide, and wind predictions. He caters to all family sizes and will do his best to ensure you have a memorable time on the water.

You’ll be fishing from his 25’ Haynie Bigfoot that’s powered by a 225 HP Mercury engine. The boat is equipped with a GPS and fishfinder unit along with all the safety gear you’ll need for a safe and productive trip. Expect a smooth, comfortable, and dry ride to the fishing grounds.

Of course, if you’d rather wade than fish out of the boat, Capt. Cody is happy to provide. On a regular trip, you’re looking at Redfish, Black Drum, and Speckled Trout as your main targets for the day. You’ll typically fish with either live or dead bait unless you want to take on the challenge of catching fish with artificial lures.

Capt. Cody will provide you with everything you need for a productive day on the water, except a fishing license, which you’ll need to bring with you. It’s also a good idea to have a pair of polarized sunglasses and some sunscreen on you, along with any drinks and snacks you’d like to have during the trip. Come on down and make some memories with CCC Guide Service!

My grandfather was a fishing guide for 30 years along the coastal bend and had fished it for 40 years. He took me fishing all the time and I loved it. After he retired I acquired my captain's license and decided to teach people how to fish the same way my grandpa had taught me. I enjoy croaker fishing for Trout just because it's much tougher than the other types of fishing we do in the bay. Catching Redfish on dead bait is my second favorite type of fishing just because even rat Reds put up a massive fight!
