Captain Frank Houser is a USCG Licensed and TPWD Certified (Texas Parks & Wildlife Department) with a 100-ton Master Near-Coastal License. Come and enjoy a day on the water “Houser-style”.

Your group of five will have a great day of Rockport fishing with an experienced and professional Captain. It takes years of fishing the Texas waters to consistently find the fish, and Captain Frank has put in the time. He will guide your group to a successful and fun day of fishing. Techniques used by Bay Charters and Duck Hunters include light tackle and drift fishing.

Captain Frank Houser is at the helm of the 23ft Stoner Fury – a highly popular and dependable skiff. Fishing the nearby bays of Rockport, Texas, we set out across the water effortlessly and can get to some skinny water that other boats can’t reach. The ride is smooth, dry, and above all: safe. Safety gear on board includes life jackets and First-Aid Kit. We also provide a cooler for any drinks or snacks you’d like to bring onboard.

While packing your food, store an extra cooler in your car for the fish you’re sure to bring home! Captain Frank will clean and package your harvest at no additional cost. Bay Charters and Duck Hunters also provides all gear for the trip: bait, fishing poles and reels, all tackle to make your trip a success. If you want to bring your own rod/reel that’s okay, just let the Captain know prior to the trip. You’ll also need to bring your Texas fishing license with saltwater stamp, available online or at local retail stores that sell fishing gear and supplies.

Your Rockport fishing trip is just a click away… we’re fishing year ‘round so book your trip today with Bay Charters and Duck Hunters before all the reservations are taken. We look forward to fishing with you!
