Top Fishing Charters in Copano Bay


Texas’ coastal bend is famed all over the world for its incredible inshore angling opportunities, and fishing in Copano Bay will amaze you. Often overshadowed by its larger neighbor (Aransas Bay), Copano Bay offers fishing that’s just as exciting. Explore these protected, secluded waters, and get your hands on some monster fish. 
 
If the waters may seem calm, the fishing is anything but. You can find tough-fighting and delicious fish alike all year round when fishing in Copano Bay. Test your skills and strength against Redfish and Black Drum, or fill the boat with Flounder, Speckled Trout, and Sheepshead. You’ll head home with plenty of fish to fill the freezer.
 
Whether you’re a beginner or a pro, there’s something for you in Copano Bay. Professional fishing guides will take you out for anywhere between four and eight hours, with the option of going night fishing for Flounder, too. Take advantage of species-specific trips, along with winter discounts, and get exactly what you want out of your angling adventure. 
 
With excellent weather year-round, there’s no reason to miss out on Copano Bay’s fishing opportunities. Hop aboard a charter in Rockport, Fulton, or even Port Aransas, and discover some of the nation’s best inshore fishing. 

Rules & Regulations
