The adventure


The Trip:  What to Expect / What to Bring

General Info:
Your trip will usually begin at first light. This may change depending on season and weather pattern.  

​Target Species: Redfish, Speckled Trout, and Black Drum. I prefer to wade fish as it can be more productive.  However, for those who prefer to fish from the boat, I can accommodate you.  I practice Catch and Release, while Texas has generous bag limits, please keep only what you can eat. I will clean and bag your catch for you.

What to Bring:    Texas Fishing License with Saltwater Stamp
Sunscreen (Smartshield) available at Rockport Tackle Town
polarized Sunglasses
Hat Wading Boots/non slip shoes. No boots please.
Lunch or Snacks, drinks, I provide water and an ice chest with ice to put your drinks in.
Please No Bananas!

Equipment: 

For Fly Fishing trips:
I recommend you bring your own gear if you have it. I can provide a rod if needed. Most fishermen have a "favorite" rod.  A seven to nine weight rod with floating redfish taper or forward floating line is sufficient.  A reel with the capacity of 100 yards of backing and a good drag system is also a plus since the Redfish are strong!  A tapered leader with 12-16 pound tippet is sufficient.  I will provide any flies, but you may bring your own.  

Spinning  gear:

I do enjoy fishing with lures and live bait.  I have high quality Okuma and Penn Reels and St Croix Rods I will provide for you. Reels are spooled with 25Lb FINS Braid. We can use natural baits and I have soft plastics, hard plastics, and  spoons for artificial bait presentations.

Wading Trips: Please bring wade boots, wade belt/net, and your favorite rod.

Location:
The areas I primarily fish are the Middle Coast areas near Rockport, TX,  The Aransas Bay complex, Redfish Bay,  Copano Bay, Ingleside, St Charles Bay, Nueces Bay and San Antonio Bay.
