Backlash Charters

Head out of Corpus Christi with Backlash Charters for a tailored fishing adventure! Captain Grant Coppin has been guiding on the Texas coast for almost a decade. He has a great love of nature and believes that an important part of running his trips is teaching you the correct techniques so you can consistently land great fish for the rest of your life.

Their 24’ Blazer Bay saltwater fishing boat is the perfect vessel for the variety of different fishing spots you can choose from. It’s stable enough to get out offshore but still able to fish the skinny water in the flats. Powered by a Mercury ProXS kicking out 250 HP and cruising at a slamming 45 knots, you will be sure to have as much time fishing as possible.

There’s a trolling motor and an anchor that will help you get up close and personal with fearful fish, and stay rock steady once you get there. The boat comes equipped with everything you could need on your day out.

You’ll get a selection of live bait and lures, and a variety of rods and reels for a huge variety of techniques. You can expect to do some trolling, spinning, jigging, popping, bottom fishing – even gigging and bow fishing!

Whether it’s stalking Redfish in the flats or just a fun day out catching some delicious Trout, Snapper or Flounder, Backlash Charters is the place to go. After a successful trip, Capt. Grant will be happy to clean and fillet your catch, so you can take it straight to the table and prepare a delicious meal upon your return.

Get ready to explore the prolific Texan waters with Backlash Charters. Book now, and have an unforgettable time!

I started fishing saltwater when I was 12 years old, and when I moved to Corpus Christi when I was 18 to go to TAMUCC I fished almost every day. I started guiding after I got out of school while fishing tournaments with my dad in the FLW Redfish series. I have been fishing on a professional level just shy of a decade and have a love and passion for what I do.
