Jellybean Guide Service

Jellybean Guide Service invites you on a day of awesome fishing out of Rockport together with Captain Toby Smith. He’s been fishing these waters since he was a kid, with his father as the guide. He specializes in bay fishing, so whatever your age or skill level, you’re in for a trip to remember.

His boat is a 22’ Majek bay boat that runs on a powerful 225 HP Yamaha V6 outboard engine. There’s enough room here for up to 4 anglers, so it’s perfect if you’re looking to have a good time together with your family. With all the necessary safety gear and navigation electronics on board, you can look forward to a safe and productive trip.

Of course, the main thing you need for a productive trip is a lot of fish, and these waters can provide just that! It’s an inshore paradise where you’ll be going after the likes of Redfish, Speckled Trout, Black Drum, and more. You never really know what you’ll find on the end of your line!

All the rods, reels, and terminal tackle you’ll need are included in the trip price. Not only that, but Capt. Toby will clean and bag your catch as well as offer a few suggestions on how to cook them. You’ll need to bring a valid fishing license with you, along with any drinks and snacks you’d like to have for the day. Come on down to Rockport and get some quality fishing done with Jellybean Guide Service!
