Anderson Guide Service

2 West Lake Drive
Rockport TX, United States

Anderson Guide Service specializes in hunting Redfish in the ultra shallow water of the central Texas coast. Conveniently located in Rockport, they have access to some of the Gulf of Mexico’s best inshore fishing. Accommodating everyone from first timers to seasoned pros, Captain Ryan Anderson is a family friendly guide who enjoys helping people catch their fish of a lifetime.

Captain Ryan fishes aboard a 21 ft Majek flats boat that can take groups of up to four people on an enjoyable fishing adventure. The boat has lots of space to move around, and it gives a very stable ride while being able to access the shallowest of waters. It is equipped with a GPS and all the appropriate safety gear, and there is a livewell on board for bait fishing.

While Captain Ryan specializes in targeting Redfish with artificials, either with light tackle or on the fly, he is also happy to do bait trips. This is the best option for trips with children, while more experienced anglers will undoubtedly benefit from Captain Ryan’s local knowledge and refined fishing techniques.

Anderson Guide Service is a very family friendly charter that is happy to take children of any age on a safe, inshore fishing trip. Just remember that the younger the child, the more patience needed on everyone’s part!

Rods, reels, tackle, bait, and lures are all included in the price of the charter, and Captain Ryan will gladly clean any legal fish you decide to keep after your trip. Please make sure to purchase a valid Texas saltwater fishing license before coming aboard the boat.
