Smiley’s Guide Service welcomes you to Rockport, Texas! You and Captain William Smiley will be fishing the beautiful Texas Gulf Coast bays near Rockport targeting various inshore and nearshore species. The captain is an experienced angler who’ll make sure you have a great time on the water. If needed, he can also accommodate larger groups and multi-boat trips. Join him and have a memorable fishing adventure in Texas!
On your trip, you’ll use a 22’ Tran Sport bay boat that can accommodate up to 4 guests. Running on a 250 HP Suzuki engine that can reach a maximum cruising speed of 35 knots along with GPS and fishfinder systems, the boat will quickly and safely take you to your prey. It also features a wireless trolling motor and a livewell.
You’ll target Speckled Trout, Flounder, and Redfish by bottom fishing, spinning, trolling, popping, as well as drift fishing, all using light tackle. You can either keep or release the fish you catch and you’re free to bring kids on your trip.
All the bait and tackle are provided along with cleaning your catch. You’ll need a fishing license with a saltwater stamp or an all-water license. You may also bring a small ice-chest with snacks and drinks. Captain William recommends bringing sunglasses and sunscreen, a camera, and a good attitude!
Join him aboard, catch fish, and have fun!
