A fishing trip to Redfish Lodge brings to mind visions of speckled trout tailwalking on a hookset and reds ripping line off of a light tackle reel. But did you know that there are other, bigger fish to be battled in the waters surrounding Rockport? March presents an excellent opportunity to land a huge black drum from 40 to 70 pounds during their spawning run. The trips to the gulf surf in July through September often produce kingfish in excess of 30 pounds, huge cobia, and sharks that can weigh over 200 pounds!
Fishing in the flats throughout the season may have you fighting a monster jack crevalle or even a tarpon. All of these fish are caught at Redfish Lodge every season, and most by guests expecting a red or trout. The next time you are out with a lodge guide and get a bite, hold on tight. You may be in for more than you bargained for!
