Lil’ Dog Guide And Tow invites you on a fun and enjoyable fishing trip in Rockport, Texas. With the help of Captain Stacy Spruiell, a friendly and skilled angler who knows how to make your trip a successful one, you’ll head out to explore and fish the beautiful inshore waters around Rockport as well as its flats and reefs. There will be fish wherever you decide to go, so come aboard and have a memorable experience on the water together with Lil’ Dog Guide And Tow!

Your journey starts on a restored 23ft Haynie center console that can take up to 4 guests. It’s powered by a 250 Mercury engine that can reach a maximum cruising speed of 45 knots. It uses all the modern GPS and fishfinder technology for safe and efficient navigation, and it’s got a livewell to supply you with live bait.

You’ll have the chance to target Black Drum, Redfish, as well as Speckled Trout, all quality species that make fine table-fare. You’ll be using light tackle to catch them in many different ways, including bottom fishing, spinning, jigging, and popping. All the fish you catch is yours to keep if you wish to, and children are more than welcome to join the trip.

The captain will provide you with all the rods, reels, tackle, live bait, and lures, so there’s no need to worry about the fishing gear. Also, he’ll clean and fillet your catch at no extra cost. Just bring your licenses, food, and drinks, and you’ll be set to go.

Come to Rockport and have a beautiful fishing experience with Captain Stacy and Lil’ Dog Guide And Tow!
