Skinny Water Addiction

602 North Hood Street
Rockport TX, United States

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 fly.

Your trip will take place aboard a 17 ft 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, and is 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 shore lines.

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 - Skinny Water Addiction always make sure to meet your water goals.
