Capt. Thomas’s Guide Service

160 Lamar Beach Road
Rockport TX, United States

Come join Captain Thomas Forsberg on a fun and productive inshore fishing trip in Rockport, Texas. Ideally located to access the area’s extensive bay system, Capt. Thomas services areas such as Copano Bay, Aransas Bay, Espiritu Santo Bay and San Antonio Bay.

You will be fishing aboard a 24 ft El Pescador center console boat that was designed specifically for fishing the inshore areas of Texas. The boat’s unique hull design allows it to access extremely shallow waters, while also offering a smooth and dry ride. Equipped with plenty of dry storage, the boat also features a GPS navigation system and a live bait tank and can comfortably cater for up to four anglers plus the captain.

Your trip will involve fishing with light tackle for the area’s famous game fish, including Redfish, Speckled Trout and Flounder. It is also possible to catch Sheepshead and big Black Drum if conditions allow.

Everyone is welcome on board, particularly families.

Captain Thomas is an accomplished guide.  He put relatively novice fishermen on a limit of seatrout.  Great time and will book again at some point.
