Top Deep Sea Fishing Charters in Rockport

Deep Sea Fishing in Rockport

Rockport deep sea fishing charters rarely come back to the port with empty bags. And understandably so. Gulf waters get super productive once you get past the 50 mile mark. The longer you travel, the more exciting the chase will get. And what a chase it can be! Yellowfin and Blackfin Tunas, Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, Marlin, and Sailfish.

One thing to know about Rockport deep seas is that they’re not for the faint-hearted. Once you get past the rich flats and bay waters of Rockport, it can take long hours before you manage to get hold of a trophy game catch. But, with a seasoned crew, a stable boat, and plenty of patience, full day trips should be sufficient. You will have the strongest chances with a longer or a multiday trip, however. That way, you will be able to scout out some truly deep waters and see what’s biting there. As for the technique, it’s dominantly trolling that does the trick.

Rockport deep sea fish

Anglers with stamina and patience will be nicely rewarded. Rockport’s offshore waters have in store all walks of big fish. The federal Red Snapper season runs throughout the summer, so get those downriggers ready. Don’t forget that closer to the shore, state waters are open year round for tasty Snapper.

Once you reach deep waters, then you will be able to get Mahi Mahi and Wahoo. Season and weather play a big role here, especially for Wahoo, as these elusive fish can be out of sight, then come after the bait out of the blue. Literally.

Also, Yellowfin and Blackfin Tuna are a possibility. It’s best that you go around deep water floaters and rigs during the night. That’s when the bait fish come up to feed, lured by the lights. You never know with Tuna, though. Trolling can get them even in broad daylight if you have enough bait fish to spare.

As for Marlin and Sailfish, Rockport is no exception. These fish can be found 60 miles offshore and further out, which means that you need a full day trip at least to make it there and back with a worthy catch. They are famed for a reason and getting them in the Gulf is a real feat. With the help of a local charter, you still might get them to bite. But, the real action comes when trying to reel them in. Muster your grip and be patient with them.

What People Are Saying About Deep Sea Fishing in Rockport


James Gouge fished with Texas Crew’d Bay Fishing on January 10, 2019

My son and I just finished our bay fishing trip with Captain Blake and it was a terrific experience. Captain Blake went out of his way to make sure we were always catching fish. Captain Blake is friendly and as easy going as a person can be. We really enjoyed fishing with him and look forward to our next trip with him for some deep water fishing.
