It's a fishing trip. Think of what you would need if you were going out on a boat for hours of FISHING. Your guide's not there to feed you, take you to shore to the restroom. He's there to put you on fish. Boat shoes are a must to keep your feet comfortable. A swimsuit with light, long sleeves, hooded fishing shirt is recommended. It gets hot and humid here.

Weekdays has less boat traffic than weekends. Sep tends to still be hot--take plenty of sunscreen and stay hydrated.

September is a tough month for fishing. Defiantly the dog days of summer but a tough day of fishing still beats working!

This was super easy in and out and didn't have to ride in the boat for half hour to start fishing and to get to multiple spots. Liked all of that. What surprised me was how far down to Corpus from Rockport it was. Question your guide ahead about what he goes after and is he flexible and what is biting lately. Always good to have proper expectations. Aransas Pass not the most scenic with a good bit of refinery shoreline but hey, good fishing

Book a charter and support local fishing guides. Unless your local, this is the best way to get out on fish and not have to worry about cleaning gear or fish. Would highly recommend.

Great fishing, if your going to be there for more than a day rent a golf cart to get around. Restaurants fill up fast and you will be turned away, most close at 9 pm.

We caught 7 different species. Only 3 keepers, but quite a lot of fish. Captain Mac and the first mate (his Boston terrier, Boomer) were very welcoming and patient with us. It was the highlight of our trip. Thanks Mac!

Three women with little experience had a blast and we all equally caught good sized fish to take home. Captain Jim was relentless in finding spots where the fish were biting. We moved a lot but it was worth it.

Capt. David Lee is a fishing professional in every way. He worked hard to put us on fish and provided bait, drinks and entertaining stories all morning. He's been fishing the area for more than thirty years and knows the local waters. It helps that he also thinks like a fish. We're going out with him again.

Won’t lie; would have liked a little more action, but that’s why they call it fishing (with an emphasis on the ing) sometimes you catch them, sometimes you don’t…. Boat was well maintained and clean; crew was professional and asked many times if we needed anything
