Rockport Fishing Charters

Rockport Fishing Charters offers half and full day inshore fishing trips, exploring the many bays and shallow waters which Rockport, TX, is so famous for. Spend the day targeting big Bull Redfish or monster Trout, with the added chance of pulling in some Black Drum, Sheepshead, and many more amazing food fish.

Rockport has become famous among anglers across the country as one of the top fishing towns for those looking for the ultimate inshore fishing experience. If that is what you are after, then look no further than Rockport Fishing Charters. With almost 40 years of guiding experience under his belt, Captain Frank Houser has an unbeatable level of skill and local knowledge, and will put you on catches you would not believe possible.

To achieve the most productive fishing among the many bays and banks surrounding Rockport, you will need a sturdy, shallow-drafted vessel which is able to follow the fish, wherever they may go. Captain Frank’s 23’ Stoner center console was built in 2014 with just that 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, and can navigate even the skinniest of waters with ease.

Captain Frank 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. 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, just remember to bring a valid saltwater fishing license for everyone aged 17 and up.

Captain Frank Houser has been running charters around Rockport since 1980, and knows these waters better than anyone else around. He has been fishing his entire life, and still feels that same thrill whenever the reels start spinning.
