Matt's Fishing Adventures

Excited to catch some fish in Rockport? Matt’s Fishing Adventures is your ticket! Having logged many hours on these tides, Captain Matt knows them forwards and back.

Depending on the season, you might hook into Redfish, Black Drum, Speckled Trout, Flounder, Sheepshead, and whatever else is biting. You’ll get to keep any legal fish you catch, and the captain will clean it for you.

You’ll be fishing aboard a 24’ El Pescador boat with a capacity for 6 passengers. It comes with everything you’ll need for a productive day on the water. Your captain will provide rods and reels, along with lures. Live bait is included.

Before coming aboard, it may be necessary to buy a local fishing license for everyone in your group. This information is usually available online, or you can ask the captain.

It’s recommended to bring bottled water, sunblock, and sunglasses. There will be some drinks on offer, but let the captain know if you wish to bring your own. Alcohol is allowed in moderation, so long as you avoid hard liquor as well as glass bottles.

    Im offering a 5-hour wade fishing trip out of Rockport Tx. You'll get the opportunity to fish some of the best flats in south texas. It will be strictly artificial and you'll need to bring your waders and fishing gear. I can provide some worlds finest jig heads aka Texas Rattler Terminal Tackle which will inhance a bite but overall this is no ordinary trip. Be prepared to fish and have some patience. Artificial fishing is a game of anticipation and we cast with the mindset of feeling those big thumps!

    This trip is just about the same as a day trip except as night falls, you get to catch the evening bite window as temps cool. Big moons or clear skies can make for some awesome conditions to enjoy the bright skies and big tugs. Fish typically feed better at night. Let's get you booked.

With summer tidal fluctuation, redfish have been active moving in and out of back lake marshes in the morning. Morning or evenings have become the focus point due to high water temps mid day that slow down the feed drastically.
