Come to Rockport, Texas and visit Captain John Wood fishing charters for a relaxing and fun fishing trip! Captain John Wood is a cordial and skilled angler who’ll see that you have a great time on the water and return home with a respectable catch. Join him on the inshore waters around Rockport and have a memorable fishing experience you’ll certainly wish to relive!

You’ll fish from a 24’ Haynie bay boat that can sit up to 4 anglers and runs on a 225 HP Mercury engine. It uses modern GPS technology as well as a radar for effective navigation and is equipped with a livewell to supply you with livebait.

The species you can target include Spotted Seatrout, Flounder, and Redfish. You and Captain John will try to catch them using light tackle and you’re free to keep all the fish you catch and take it home. If you wish to bring kids on your trip, feel free to do so. They always make the atmosphere on board more fun and they may easily love the marine world.

All the rods, reels, terminal tackle, live bait, and lures will be ready for you when you arrive, and the captain will also clean and fillet your catch if you want him to. What you should bring on your trip are only your fishing licenses and the food and drinks of your choice.

Come to Rockport and enjoy a lovely day fishing together with Captain John Wood!
