Saltitude Outfitters

1137 Redwood Avenue
Rockport TX, United States

Saltitude Outfitters operate out of Rockport, TX, providing some of the best inshore fishing experiences along the whole of the Texas Coastal Bend. Located a short drive from San Antonio, on the famous Aransas Bay, Rockport offers easy access to a selection of amazing inshore and flats fishing territories, with Speckled Trout and Redfish found in huge numbers.

Spend the day fishing aboard Captain Sam Shiwart’s 22 ft Mowdy center console. Built in 2014, this sturdy and reliable vessel offers tons of fishing space, and comes equipped with a stealthy trolling motor for sneaking up on even the spookiest fish, the latest electronics and navigational gadgets so you know exactly what is swimming around below, and high quality fishing tackle and bait fresh from the tank to help you bring in the very best out there.

Saltitude Outfitters specialize in boat and wade fishing for Redfish and Trout, with all their gear and boat set up for these styles of fishing. On each trip you will be provided with top-of-the-line light fishing tackle, which can be set up for spinning or popping, as well as plenty of live bait for those who prefer this tried and tested fishing style.

Captain Sam has spent his entire life fishing these waters, and will take you to the very best spots on every trip. He is also the perfect tournament guide, with plenty of experience guiding popular local events such as the Babes on the Bay ladies’ fishing tournament.

All trips come with tackle, bait, lures, and bottled water, as well as a cleaning and filleting service for any fish you want to take away - just remember to bring a big cooler to fit it all in!
