Pebsworth The Trip Fishing Guide

Pebsworth The Trip Fishing Guide invites you on a fishing adventure in the abundant waters of Rockport, Texas. This area is brimming with fish waiting to bite your hook day or night, and they are available year-round, too. Your guide and captain John Pebsworth is a patient and fun person.

Captain John has been fishing in Rockport for over 10 years now, and during his time as a guide, he has served countless satisfied guests. He wants you to have a good time aboard his boat and to catch fish. His number one priority is always safety. Captain John always makes sure everyone on board is familiar with the safety procedures and is super careful around children. That is what makes him so loved by all his guests!

Pebsworth The Trip Fishing Guide can take you fishing for Redfish, Speckled Trout, Sheepshead, Black Drum, and Flounder. Captain John will take you to the best inshore and flats waters around Rockport where you can utilize a number of fishing techniques. From light tackle and popping, to drift fishing and even Flounder gigging - a special way to catch Flounder using long poles to catch this super tasty fish.

You will go out on a 22-foot Majek center console originally built in 2015. Being powered by a 225 HP Yamaha SHOW engine, with a maximum cruising speed of 52 knots, this boat is super fast and slices through anything. This vessel is equipped with all the USCG approved safety equipment such as life jackets and a CPR-trained crew. There is also all the electronics like a GPS and a fishfinder needed to locate the schooling fish.

Pebsworth The Trip Fishing Guide will provide you with rods, reels, tackle, bait, drinks, and even cleaning and filleting of the catch. You are to provide your own valid Texas fishing license, and are invited to have some serious fun!

"Hurricane Harvey disrupted things a bit but I have had some time back on the water. Fishing bays and flats is a bit different now but the fish are there. Opening my schedule back up.

He is a patient man able to accommodate children, women, and men of all skills, as well as teaching them anything they need to know. Captain John says: "I fish for fun.
