Tails Up Guide Service
One of our top picks in Rockport. Captain James Sabo of Tails Up Guide Service offers inshore fishing adventures serving the areas of Rockport, Portland, Port Aransas, and Aransas Pass, Texas. He fishes aboard a 2014 Majek Illusion boat that gives a comfortable ride for up to five anglers and can travel in the shallowest of water to catch the biggest of inshore fish. The boat is fitted out with quality Garmin marine electronics, a trolling motor and an anchoring system, all designed to give you the best inshore fishing experience.
Capt. James specializes in fishing with topwater lures and soft plastics, although he is also happy to fish with live or dead bait at the customer’s preference. This could include mullet, mud minnow, crabs, and sea lice, depending on the type of fish that is being targeted. Your trip will mainly involve sight casting and shallow water stalking for Redfish, Speckled Trout, Black Drum, Flounder, and sometimes also Sheepshead, Jack Crevalle, and even Tarpon.
Please note that all anglers are responsible for purchasing a Texas saltwater fishing license with a saltwater stamp prior to their trip. These can be bought at Texas Parks and Wildlife, Deep Sea Headquarters in Port Aransas Texas, or at Rockport Tackle Town. It is also advised that children under the age of 13 bring a comfortable life jacket, as the type 1 vests supplied on the boat can be uncomfortable for smaller kids.

We had a true 5 star experience with captain Sabo. He’s a stand up guy and kept my 11 and 13 year old daughters on the fish all morning. They never had time to open the snack bag I packed for them. Water for hydration and sunscreen and back on the rods. I highly reccomend tails up guide service.
