Port Mansfield Trophy Trout Package; December 1st-April 30th

​It’s getting to be that time of year, time for the big trout to come out and play in the shallow water. We are starting to take bookings for 2 day minimum trips in Port Mansfield. Why two? Because after the first day you will not want to leave. 

Pricing (book as many as you want, but 2 day minimum required):
$550 day/ 3 people
$650 day/ 4 people
$750 day/ 5 people

These trips are strictly wading lures, with the hunt for trophy trout in mind. Sure, fish for dinner can be caught, but filling the ice chest is not the intent for the trip. It is to seek out your personal best, or upgrade that. Once you go and experience the shallow water trout fishing on this part of the beautiful Texas Coast, you will be hooked and hungry for more. Rod/reel combos can be provided, but arrangements must be made ahead of time.

Sight Casting Trips

Seadrift, TX is one of the best places on the Middle Texas Coast to sight cast reds.  Whether it's the clear protected marsh of Matagorda Island, or along the miles of grass flats covering the outside shorelines.  Seeing that fish cruise the flat and having the opportunity to present a lure to them in such a way they can't turn it down is hard to beat, it definitely gets the blood pumping!  Let me share my knowledge and expertise of how to spot these fish, and present a lure to them.  Watching one of these big reds inhale a lure and immediately strip line off your reel is something you have to experience for yourself.


Feel free to bring your own equipment, but a must have is an excellent pair of polarized sunglasses.

These trips are meant for 1-2 people because I have a 6ft tower with a 3ft pedestal in front, to give each angler a birds eye view of the fish.

Fish 'n Gig Package

​Family vacation, or a short trip away from the office, or not enough time to spend 3 or 4 days enjoying all that saltwater has to offer?  Come join us for a full experience, wrapped up in one day with the Fish n’ Gig Package.

Price:
3 people-$1100
4 people-$1300
5 people-$1500

Saltwater fishing is year round, 365 days and a phenomenal experience.  The package consists of a day of wade fishing artificial out of Seadrift, Texas, and an evening of gigging flounder out of Goose Island, Rockport, Texas.

A day of wade fishing, we will depart from the dock at safe light, and return around 2-3pm.

Night of gigging, we will depart at sunset and a trip runs 4-8 hours, depending on weather conditions and fishing success.

Captain Rick Hammond, Night Stalker Guide Service, has been guiding flounder gigging trips in the Rockport, Texas, area for 15 years. He will show you a whole different perspective on fishing, as you explore the bay at night from his 26' flounder gigging boat. The boat is very spacious and comfortable.  Rick uses air-motor and powerful lights that illuminate the bay shallows where the flounder hide. The bay comes to life at night, and the fish are not afraid of the boat, making the trip like looking into a moving aquarium. In addition to gigging delicious flounder, sheephead, and black drum, you will regularly see the following species up close during a gigging trip: redfish, trout, mullet, stingrays, needlefish, crabs, alligator gar, puffer fish, croaker, perch, and alligators. Rick is a great teacher, and loves to show kids and first time fishermen the secrets to gigging big flounder, sheepshead, and black drum. Rick has the knowledge, experience, and positive attitude needed to make every outing the trip of a lifetime.


Come join us for the ultimate saltwater experience, with over 25 years of combined experience pursuing trout, redfish, flounder, and black drum.  This trip will not disappoint.

Winter Discount!

Put the rifles and shotguns away, dust off the fishing equipment, and book your fishing trip.  This time of year can produce trophy fish.  When many people choose to sit at the house because the weather conditions may not be ideal, this leaves the bays wide open for the rest of us.  With the lack of boat traffic, trout and redfish can be easily patterned.


December 1-February 28, I'm offering this discount for wade fishing trips: $500 for 3 people, add $100 for the 4th and 5th. 

3 people-$167 per person

4 people-$150 per person

​5 people-$140 per person
