If you’re looking for a diverse angling adventure on the Gulf Coast, then a Rockport, Texas, fishing guide is just what you want. These professionals will have you exploring the wealth of waterways, from the shallow flats to the deep waters offshore, as you go in search of some of the “Lone Star State’s” most-loved creatures. 
 
When you think about fishing in South Texas, you usually think of bay fishing – and for good reason. From Rockport, you can hit the productive waters of the Copano and Aransas Bays to target a range of prized fish. Jack Crevalle, Sheepshead, Black Drum, Redfish, Speckled Trout, and even Tarpon are just some of the fish that call these waters home, so get ready for a productive day out. 
 
It’s not just the bays that make opting for a Rockport fishing guide your best bet of getting what you want out of your trip. An adventure beyond the jetties to the nearshore and offshore waters of the Gulf will see you target Amberjack, Cobia, Groupers, Snappers, and a whole host of big game fish like Mahi Mahi, Tuna, and Billfish. 
 
There’s something for everyone in Rockport, with trips tailored to anglers of all ages and abilities. Bring the family aboard for a couple of hours and get the kids hooked on fishing, or spend as long as six or eight hours pushing your skills to the limit. If you’re looking for that offshore adventure, then you’ll need at least a full day on the water, with trips lasting as long as a few days out, too. 
 

Rules & Regulations

Before coming aboard for a fishing adventure on the Texas coastal bend, every angler will need a valid TX saltwater fishing license. Grab yours online or from any licensed retailer, and you’re good to go. Your professional Rockport, Texas fishing guide will make sure you stay within all legal size and bag limits, so you can sit back and enjoy the thrilling fishing on offer.

January

The start of the year is already solid in Rockport, with plenty of inshore fishing to keep you on your toes. A professional guide will take you to the sweet spots, as you target Sheepshead, Specks, Pompano, and Drum.

February
Winter is just another fishing season in South Texas, so don't miss out on the incredible fishing on offer in February. Hit the flats in search of Specks, and you may even land a Red or two on a windy day.
March
Inshore fishing hits its peak as spring makes its way along the coast. Warm up for the season in earnest by getting your fill of prized Redfish, Speckled Trout, Sheepshead and more, as you hit the flats and jetties.
April
Spring has sprung and new life shines upon Rockport and the inshore bays. Make the most of the incredible fishing on offer and get out first thing in the morning to land Trout, Redfish, and many more.
May
Peak season is nearly upon Rockport, so you'll have the chance of targeting a wild array of fish. Hit the flats for the usual suspects inshore, or head nearshore and get your fill of Amberjack, Cobia, and Mackerel.
June
It’s getting warmer and warmer, and the federal Red Snapper season is on. Follow the hundreds of avid anglers as they make their way to the Gulf of Mexico's deeper waters in search of this prized, delicious fish.
July
You're spoiled for choice when it comes to fishing in Rockport in July. Offshore fishing starts heating up, with Mahi Mahi joining Red Snapper, Cobia, and Kingfish, to give you the chance of a fruitful long day out. 
August
School's out and the fishing is on! Bring the kids inshore to get their fill of delicious Redfish, Trout, and Flounder, while nearshore is still red hot. Don't forget about offshore waters, too, as Tuna make their way back.
September
Tarpon make their way through the bay, while Bull Redfish come out to play, meaning an inshore adventure is as fruitful as ever. However, big game hunters can make the most of Tuna, Mahi Mahi, and Wahoo offshore.

 

October
The fall Redfish run brings with it some monster creatures, along with plenty of delicious Trout and Flounder. Don't miss out on the chance to go offshore, though, with Marlin adding to the star-studded cast in the deep.
November
You still face a dilemma when deciding where to go fishing in November, with Tuna, Marlin, and Wahoo biting offshore, along with King Mackerel. Meanwhile, Redfish, Trout, Black Drum, and Tarpon are aplenty inshore.
December
The beauty of fishing in South Texas is that you can do it year-round, so even in December you can hunt your favorite fish. Tuna and Marlin are still biting offshore, with Redfish, Trout, and Drum in the bays, too.

Hiring a fishing guide is an expensive day. But it's worth it if you catch fish! There are LOTS of fishing guides available in the Rockport area. Find one that has at least a decade of experience and guides for a living - these are the ones that have the experience and hunger to make your day successful. And worth the price that you pay.

The trip met and exceeded our expectations. The captain wasted no time putting us on the fish and was well prepared with rigs and bait for multiple species. We caught 5 different types of fish throwing some of them back but got a nice grand slam and good keepers. His knowledge of the bays and fishing techniques were excellent and he was friendly and eager to share it.

We couldn’t have asked for a better guide, we had an absolutely great day with Captain Corey! The keeper-size fish weren’t cooperating, but Corey went over and above to make sure we all caught fish to take home, while having so much fun. Great memories for three mature classmates reconnecting with a great outing!

Our couples trip on the water consisted of a party of four. We enjoyed a great half day of fishing. The day started with light action but Captain Matt was not deterred, he kept us moving until he found us THE spot. We landed various species and boxed 11 beautiful Black Drum. Good stuff!!! Great time was had by all.

Once that was out of the way, Capt John took us to a variety of spots and rigged up for different types of fishing. He put us on the fish and added a few pointers here and there. Overall it was a great day and provided wonderful memories for my son and I. Would definitely recommend. 👍🏽👍🏽👍🏽
