Capt Jon Mahan Hunting & Fishing

Cove Harbor South
Rockport TX, United States

Fishing out of Cove Harbor South, Rockport, Captain Jon Mahan offers fun inshore fishing trips for all the family. He fishes aboard a 21 ft Shallow Sport boat which, true to its name, can access some of the shallowest of waters to get to where the fish are. The boat has plenty of room for up to four guests plus the captain, and gives a dry and stable ride around the local bay systems.

Captain Jon Mahan fishes the bays for Redfish, Trout, Flounder, and Black Drum, and provides both live bait and artificial lures to suit all fishing styles. He welcomes all levels of angler aboard, and supplies all the rods and reels you will need throughout your trip. All you need to bring is suitable clothing, any food or beverages you might like to consume, and a valid Texas fishing license with a saltwater stamp.

Captain Jon also runs offshore Red Snapper trips aboard his larger boat, which you can view by clicking on his captain’s profile at the bottom of the page.

Saltwater fishing is my passion. I grew up in Kingsville, Texas fishing Baffin Bay as a child. I now live in Rockport and love to fish offshore and in the bays around Rockport.

Another success trip with Capt Jon!  Jon knows the bays and he finds the fish.  Catching fish at the coast usually isn’t a problem.  Catching quality fish and filling up the ice chest is more of a challenge.  Capt Jon is on top of his game and he’s not afraid of making those long runs to find fish.  Thanks again for a great trip.  We will definitely book another trip in the near future.
