Saltwater Sport Texas

PO Box 2737
Rockport TX, United States

Saltwater Sport Texas offers bay fishing trips for a variety of inshore saltwater species. Tailoring each and every trip to the client’s experience and comfort level, Captain Cody dedicates time and thought to make sure that every charter he offers is a blast, with safety of all on board remaining the top priority.

Your vessel will be a 21 ft Dargel boat that is powered by a 140 HP Suzuki engine. Traveling up to 40 knots, this boat will make sure you get to your desired location fast, and its marine electronics will allow the captain to find the best places to catch fish. Featuring an anchoring system and an ice box, the boat also has a wide casting area at the front, with space for up to four anglers to fish. Wide and stable, this boat is great for accessing shallow water.

During the trip you will be fishing for Speckled Trout, Redfish, Flounder, Black Drum and more either from the boat or wading, depending on your preferences. Captain Cody will be with you every step of the way, explaining the game plan and the approach for the trip, and how the weather, tidal movement, and moon phases affect the fishing tactics.

In Captain Cody’s words: “Fun, Sun, and Fish is what it’s all about. Kids are welcome and Safety First… Let’s Go Fishing!”
