How It All Started
Redfish Lodge was originally planned as a private real estate development by Canadian carnival magnate Jim Conklin who purchased Rattlesnake Point in 1983. When the Texas real estate collapsed in the mid-1980’s, Conklin, an avid fisherman, changed course and decided to turn it into an upscale fishing lodge. The fishing lodge, which opened in 1992, started with the main lodge and one guest house. A second guest house to the property a few years later bringing the guest total to 18.
Early 2000's, the "Pouzies Pier" property was purchased. From this spectacular setting, small groups that preferred a high level of privacy enjoyed the incredible adventure of Redfish Lodge. Jim Conklin went back to his roots furnishing the timber frame lodge with fun, carnival themes artifacts, many from the 1930's.
What Sets Us Apart
When you visit Redfish Lodge, you will find a setting unlike any other on the Gulf Coast. Our beautiful, well-appointed facilities are spread out across a 73-acre fishing paradise that allow you to watch both sunrise and sunset over our pristine water. The serenity and seclusion of the private, gated point allow you to relax and get away from it all, while being only minutes from the conveniences of downtown Rockport. Immerse yourself in bays teeming with fish, or wetlands spotted with beautiful wading birds, or just relax in the pool or hot tub with the beverage of your choice. Whatever your choice, you will do it in privacy and comfort on the grounds at Redfish Lodge.
Fishing Is What We Do
Redfish Lodge is blessed to be located in the middle of one of the most prolific fisheries anywhere on the Gulf Coast. The shallow, grass laden waters of the Laguna Madre and Estes Flats make the southern half of the Coastal Bend. The deep, oyster reef rich bays extend down from the north. Port Aransas jetties supply us with all the water, bait, and gamefish the Gulf of Mexico has to offer. The confluence of these three ecosystems takes place right in our back yard, making the waters around Rockport a true fishing paradise.
