Head out with Rockport Fishing Charters and explore the many bays and shallow waters which Rockport, TX, is so famous for! Captain Frank Houser likes to keep things simple on his trips, trusting in his knowledge of the area and the fish which inhabit it to get the job done.

Hop aboard his 23’ Stoner center console, which was built with shallow water fishing in mind. Powered by a clean-burning 140HP Suzuki engine, she can reach speeds of up to 40 knots to get you hopping from spot to spot in no time, navigating even the skinniest of waters with ease.

You’ll spend the day targeting a variety of inshore classics. This includes mostly big Bull Redfish or monster Trout, with the added bonus of pulling in some Black Drum, Sheepshead, and many more amazing food fish.

Your trip will focus on light tackle casting with either live bait or lures, hitting only the most productive spots to make sure you get the biggest bang for your buck! All trips come with tackle, bait, and a cleaning and filleting service for all your catch.

All you’ll need to remember to bring is a valid saltwater fishing license for everyone in your party aged 17 and up. Pack up some drinks and snacks to enjoy while you’re on board and you’re ready to go!

Experience incredible inshore fishing in fine Texan waters aboard Rockport Fishing Charters!
