Just Fishing Guide Service

Just Fishing Guide Service offers bay fishing and flounder gigging guided trips in Rockport, Texas, and if you’ve never had the chance to explore the fishery in this area, this is your chance. Captain David Hill has been exploring these parts for over 20 years, and he knows exactly what to do to get you on the fish quickly.

You’ll spend your day fishing aboard a 25’ Majek center console that provides a wide, spacious, and stable deck that will serve as your fishing platform. The vessel can accommodate up to 5 anglers and have them fishing at the same time. She is powered by a 250 HP Yamaha engine and comes equipped with GPS, fishfinder, a trolling motor, live bait tank, and icebox to keep your refreshments cool while you fish. You will use Shimano and Penn rods and reels, so you don’t have to lug around your own fishing equipment unless you want to.

You get to choose between a bay fishing trip and a specialized night Flounder gigging trip. Captain’s boat is fully equipped to take you out in the cover of darkness for an exhilarating Flounder hunt, and if you’ve never tried it before, get ready for an adventure.

When it comes to your catch during the day, you will be going after the inshore favorites that are both fun to reel in and delicious to eat. You will be on the lookout for Speckled Trout, Redfish, Black Drum, and Flounder. To attract the best and biggest fish, Capt. David uses live bait, cut bait, and lures on occasion. If wade fishing is your preferred angling method, he will gladly take you out, you just need to provide your own waders.

After the trip, you will get the fruits of your hard work cleaned and filleted, so not only will you have something to brag about, but you also get a tasty meal as a reward. Bring your kids or your angling buddies and head out to a fishing escapade to remember with Just Fishing Guide Service!

I've been fishing in the Rockport area for over 35 years, and I know these waters like the back of my hand. Angling has always been my passion, and I always like to say that a day on the water is a good day. I specialize in going after Flounder, as well as other inshore species like Speckled Trout, Redfish, and Black Drum.
