Come visit Redfish Reaper Guide Service for an amazing day of fishing on the beautiful and productive waters of Rockport, Texas. Together with Captain James Hinton, you will explore all sorts of fishing grounds from rivers and lakes to inshore waters to spots far off the coast and more, all rich in natural beauty as well as with prized fish species. The captain is a lifelong and cordial angler who knows how to make your trip fun and successful, so join him in Rockport and have a memorable stay on the water!

You will be fishing from a restored 23’ Majek bay boat that can sit up to 4 anglers. It runs on a 200 HP Evinrude engine that can reach a maximum cruising speed of 45 knots. Along with modern GPS technology, the boat allows for a safe and quick trip to the fish. It also uses a wireless trolling motor for a more tactful approach to your prey and is equipped with a livewell.

Some of the lovely species you’ll have the chance to catch include Jack Crevalle, Speckled Trout, Flounder, Ladyfish, Redfish, and more. You can catch them by bottom fishing, spinning, popping, as well as drift fishing, all using light tackle. You’re free to keep all the fish that is allowed if you want to. Otherwise, simply release it back to the water.

Captain James will provide you with all the rods, reels, tackle, and lures, and will also clean and fillet your catch at no extra cost. What you should bring on your trip are just your fishing licenses, food, and drinks.

Come spend a day fishing with Redfish Reaper Guide Service and create memories on the water you will cherish for a long time!

Member since March 2021
Captain James's wife and he built a life from the ground up and made a living out of owning and operating their family farm. They raised three kids the way God intended and after two of the three moved out, the captain and his wife then started to reflect on the life they made. After years of intensive labor, Captain James decided that it was time for a change. He has fished for the entirety of his life and when he learned that he could make a career of it, he dove right in. The captain began to spend time in the Rockport area and stuck around for about 5 years before making the decision that becoming fisherman was a career he would like to pursue.
