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!”

Spent nearly 8 hours hunting fish with no success… I had requested several times that I wanted to try artificial bait and was never offered that chance even when in the last couple of hours we found some reds… So after all that time we had nothing to take home… Cody was fun and had a great personality… Just couldn’t find fish…

David and his guys really struggled, did find redfish tailing but they had a hard time casting…
Split day into morning and afternoon sessions for customers and bent over backwards on a challenging day.

Cody “knows where the fish are”. If you want Reds, Bull Reds, Trout, etc Cody is the guy. He has been in this area for 10 years and has the equipment for are skill sets, plus he is pleasant to talk to.

Fish were not biting at all. Still put these guys on fish. It too them a while to get their sea legs and used to casting again. It was a good day considering the obstacles to overcome on a 4 hours trip…
  Caught 1 limit of trout including a 22” fish!!
