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!”

This was our first experience hiring a guide to get out on the bays, and we had a great time. Based on tides and weather, the fish weren’t hitting much but we managed to get a few in the boat - enough for a fish fry later that evening!  Captain Cody stuck with it and extended our trip well past the 4 hours in order to land some more fish - he worked hard to deliver a fun experience for the wife and I.

The Robinson’s were great to have on the boat! Great fishermen! I enjoyed the day as their charter boat captain. We caught some pretty big jackfish and a few skillet fish.
GREAT AMERICANS.

The guys were great. Fishing was intense and the guys adapted to what was needed to get the fish in the boat.  All said it’s hard to beat redfish up to 31 inches…... Great job guys!

My son and I booked this trip when fishing was slow.  Cody told us he would find us fish and indeed he came through.
We hit some good spots were we had many double hook ups.  The specs started biting and this slow start end up with a good amount of keepers plus many right under the size necessary to keep.
My son is already wanting to book a early winter trip. Great time and knowledgeable Captain.

Thanks for the great fishing trip Cody.

It is truly a pleasure to see experienced fishermen hook up and work their fish and get them in the boat under control.
They kept their mind in the game at all times.  I can’t wait to do it again
