Special T Guide Service

Cove Harbor North
Rockport TX, United States

Special T Guide Service specializes in fishing the shallow waters and the flats of the coastal bend of Texas, cruising out of Rockport. The company is owned and operated by a U.S.C.G. licensed Captain Travis, who is an enthusiastic guide with many years of experience. If you are looking to butt heads with the fish of your dream – Captain Travis will make that happen.

Enjoy your fishing trip with Special T Guide Service aboard a 23-ft Haynie Cat boat, which comes powered by a 250 HP Mercury SX engine. It has a maximum cruising speed of 45 knots and provides fishing space for up to four guests, but the Captain prefers to take three anglers on his trips for more comfort. Its navigational electronics include a fish finder and a GPS. The vessel is wheelchair accessible and is equipped with an ice-box to keep the catch fresh during the day and a live bait tank.

Special T Guide Service will take you fishing the flats and shallow waters of the coastal bend of Texas. Whether it’s a four-hour trip to see what is biting, a full day trip to have the waters all to yourself, or a wade fishing adventure for the most passionate anglers – Special T Guide Service will accommodate all your needs.

Captain Travis specializes in targeting Redfish, Speckled Trout, Flounder, and Black Drum. Don’t forget to bring a cooler for the catch with you and your favorite wading gear if you feel like getting closer to the fish.

A fishing trip with Special T Guide Service comes inclusive with top-of-the-line Teramar rods, Shimano Symetre reels, tackle, lures, and live bait, but you could bring your favorite gear as well. If you decide to keep the catch, it will be cleaned and filleted for a ride home, where you could have it for dinner later or just fill the freezer. Bring your own drinks and food with you, as well as a valid Texas fishing license with a saltwater stamp.

The Captain offers 10% Discount for Active Military and Vets.
