Wishing I Was Fishing Charter
One of our top picks in Rockport. Wishing I Was Fishing Charter Service is dedicated to providing the whole family with lifetime memories of delightful fishing trips and shared fun by reeling in game fish. It is run by Captain Todd who has spent his life working on or under the water. He started off as a diver and has now opened a charter service which allows him to spend his time on the water and at the same time, make his guests happy by giving them the same opportunity. He is an avid fisherman who will be able to teach you about the marine life like few others could.
His boat is a 29-foot Grady-White center console, which was originally built in 2011 and can easily fit 5 guests. It is powered by two 300 HP Yamaha 4 Strokes engines making it fast and steady on the offshore trips. You will find a GPS, a radar, a VHF radio for communication with the USCG and a fishfinder ideal for locating the best fishing spots. The boat has a great XM.Stereo system for entertainment, as well as outriggers, a freshwater shower, and a toilet which is a huge plus. There is also all the safety equipment in form of life jackets, flares, fire extinguishers, first-aid equipment and a CPR-trained crew, so you can feel at ease.
Wishing I Was Fishing Charter Service runs offshore trips to the most beautiful blue waters of the Gulf of Mexico that are home to some of the best game fish. You will be able to target Great Barracudas, Cobia, Sailfish, Jack Crevalle, King Mackerel, and the delicious Red Snapper and Mahi Mahi. Captain Todd will provide rods, reels, tackle, bait in live and artificial form, and you will also have a first mate on the boat to help you reel in the fish. Once back ashore, you are welcome to have your catch cleaned and filleted for you so you can take it away for a nice meal. You’ll have bottled water provided by the crew on all trips. Accommodation is at Captain Todd’s house in Rockport, and consists of 2 bedrooms for lodging with a coffee bar and breakfast.

My brother turned 40 and got married for the 1st time, so what better way to celebrate both but to take him fishing. We had an amazing time and caught our limit in snapper and even had some great excitement with some kings. Captain Todd and his first mate were awesome. We booked with accommodations and they put us up and feed the whole crew. The boat leaves right from their private dock and makes for a great experience. We made some amazing memories and Capt. Todd and Gabby are super host. Thanks for making our trip the best.
