Skinny Water Addiction

Skinny Water Addiction, based out of Rockport, is really enthusiastic about fishing the pristine Texas bay systems. Take a trip with them and shortly you will be addicted, too! They are a child-friendly and very welcoming charter that specializes in fishing with artificial lures and on the fly.

Your trip will take place aboard a 17’ Hells Bay technical poling skiff. Glide across the tranquil salt waters… or not so tranquil when a sudden chaos of Redfish erupts! Practice your sight-casting technique and spot your fish before making the first cast.

While fishing for Black Drum, Spotted Seatrout, Flounder, and Redfish, you will be able to relax from the adventures, have a snack, and learn about different species, water conditions, and navigation. Captain Jones will even teach you how to read nautical maps!

The boat has a GPS, a wireless trolling motor for those fearful specimens, and it’s specifically designed to take you poling, drifting, and wading in the grass flats in the back lakes and marshes of San Antonio and all the way down along the shorelines.

Skinny Water Addiction works with high-end quality fly fishing equipment and premium gear, which is included in the price of the trip. They also provide snacks and drinks for refreshment. Novice to experts – the crew always makes sure to meet your water goals.

So what are you waiting for? Book a trip with Skinny Water Addiction and have a great time in these prolific Texan waters!

Member since November 2016
Capt. Lloyd Jones is an experienced local fisherman who has felt at home in waters around San Antonio since he was a boy. After a career in the insurance industry, he founded Skinny Water Addiction in 2012 and has never looked back. He has gone above and beyond and pushed himself to the limits by competing in various tournaments, including IFA Redfish Series, Texas Redfish Series, and the FLW. Lloyd has no greater joy than watching his clients catch their first fish, be it on foot or on the boat, cruising the Rockport area. Even when he is not operating fishing charters, he is out on the water, looking for new honey holes that could be home to your next trophy fish. The Captain is very dedicated to nature and its resources, cleaning trash after others. He is known for his calmness, knowledge, and entertaining personality.
