Fishing Guide Rockport - Captain Eddie on his boat

Capt. Eddie Jenkins

Hello! I’m Capt. Eddie Jenkins, your Rockport fishing guide! I am thrilled to welcome you to my corner of the Texas Coastal Bend. Our charter service proudly serves Port Aransas, Rockport, Corpus Christi, Aransas Pass, Portland, and Ingleside, offering guided fishing trips that showcase the best of our coastal waters, particularly in Rockport.

Redfish, Speckled Trout, Black Drum, and Flounder reign supreme among our customers’ favorite catches. Having honed my fishing skills in this area since childhood, I knew early on that this was my calling.

Surrounded by fishing guides and enthusiasts throughout my life, I’ve absorbed every tip, technique, and fishing hotspot available in the Aransas Bay water complex. With a lifetime of experience fishing the Aransas Bay, Copano Bay, Nueces Bay, Corpus Christi Bay, and the Gulf of Mexico, weather permitting, I’ve become a seasoned guide dedicated to providing exhilarating fishing experiences in Rockport.

My passion is to share the wealth of knowledge I’ve accumulated with you, whether you’re a novice or an experienced angler looking for a fishing guide in Rockport. Get ready for heart-pounding excitement and fast-paced fishing action.

As a guide, I’m easy-going and personable, prioritizing the comfort and enjoyment of every guest—especially families and children. I specialize in family fishing trips, corporate outings, and professional tournament guiding across popular bay areas, including Aransas Bay, Copano Bay, Nueces Bay, Corpus Christi Bay, Baffin Bay, the Land Cut, and Port Mansfield bays, with a particular emphasis on providing exceptional fishing experiences in Rockport.

Occasionally, we venture into Dolphin Watching, Sunset Cruises, or educational Aquatic Life and Coastal Birding Tours, ensuring there’s something for everyone in the family to enjoy in Rockport. Three-generational family fun is at the heart of what we do, so bring Grandma and Grandpa along for these unforgettable outings!
