Angler Management Gulf Coast

712 East Orleans Street
Rockport TX, United States

Angler Management Gulf Coast runs year-round fishing trips inshore and around the flats of Rockport, TX. You can be a novice angler or a pro, still these waters can surprise you with some really big fish. Here you can find Redfish and Speckled Trout.

To make the most out of your trip, you will need a guide with local knowledge. Captain Derreck knows the spots and will make sure you have a fun day out.

You will be fishing from a 23’ TranCat angler boat that can take up to four anglers. She is powered by a 200 HP Mercury engine. The boat is equipped with GPS, a fishfinder, and has the safety gear. There are two aerated live wells onboard. The boat can easily move around the area and get you some nice light tackle fishing. You will be able to fish the shallow flats when conditions allow, while also being able to fish in rougher waters if necessary.

Primarily targeting Redfish and Trout in the bay systems around Rockport, Derrek Dongong is an expert in providing enjoyable experiences on the water. He provides all the equipment you will need for your trip, although if you would rather bring your own rods and reels you are very welcome to do so.

All the bait is provided onbard, but if you have a favorite set, feel free to bring it along. Also, make sure to pack a valid fishing license, food and drinks, a wide-brimmed hat, polarized sunglasses, sunblock, and non-marking shoes. Please avoid bringing bananas along. Don’t forget to pack a camera as you want to get a good shot of your catch.
