Coastal Rod Bender

Captain Russ Wheeler of Coastal Rod Bender covers famous fishing grounds such as Rockport, Port Aransas, Aransas Pass, and Corpus Christi. He prides himself on achieving exceptional results both for beginners and experienced anglers, and families with young children are always welcome.

You will be fishing aboard a comfortable 23’ Haynie Cat center console that offers a stable and dry ride. Powered by a 250 HP Mercury Pro XS engine, the boat runs fast to the fishing spots. The super quiet Minn Kota Trolling Motor will allow you to get up close to the fish and perfect your cast.

Capt. Russ specializes in sight casting, bay, flats, and wade fishing. He uses live and/or fresh dead bait, and/or artificial lures depending on your preference and how the fish are biting on the day. You may do some drift fishing, letting your bait float naturally in the water, or you can practice sight fishing, throwing your bait or lures out towards the fish.

These are abundant waters, so there’s no shortage when it comes to the species you can target. Jack Crevalle, Black Drum, Redfish, Spotted Seatrout, Flounder, and Sheepshead all call these waters their home, and are all potential targets.

Don’t forget to buy a valid Texas saltwater fishing license before your trip. Capt. Russ offers a 10% discount to active military, veterans, and wounded warriors.

Get on board Coastal Rod Bender and experience fishing in some of the most productive waters off the coast of Texas!
