Saltwater Fishing License

Texas law requires you to have a Saltwater Fishing License with a Saltwater Stamp while fly fishing in Rockport. We always check licenses before leaving the dock. Saltwater licenses are available at local tackle shops or online. You can learn more about License Purchase Requirements or Purchase Your License through the Texas Parks & Wildlife website.
While we prefer to practice catch and release, you are allowed to the keep fish you catch. Your captain will make certain that all Texas fishing regulations are followed. No exceptions!

Boat, Food & Beverage

We operate out of a variety of different skiffs. Most common are our Hells Bay Professional Skiffs. They offer 1-2 passengers a comfortable and dry ride, while allowing us to stalk fish on the shallowest flats.

We happily provide all clients a variety of non-alcoholic drinks, including water and Gatorade, but you must provide your own alcoholic beverages and lunch. No bananas on the boat, please.
