Soul Water Expeditions

Capt. Cody Miller Rockport, TX Incorporated Licensed Insured

Soul water Expeditions welcomes you to an extravagant day of sight fishing the legendary flats of the Texas Coastal Bend. We will put you right where the action is on this thriving ecosystem full of healthy sportfish. You will have an amazing time saltwater fishing in Rockport, Texas!

Captain Cody Miller will be commanding the vessel as you experience the majesty of fishing in Texas. Capt. Cody began guiding for an outfitter in 2007 while living in western Wyoming. After getting a taste for the outdoor lifestyle, he decided to move up to Alaska and guide for a fly-in lodge in Bristol Bay for the summer of 2008. That summer sparked a decade long career guiding the rivers of western Alaska. Shortly after returning from Alaska in 2008, he began spending as much time chasing Redfish as he possibly could. Now, he is an active steward and enjoys the outdoor lifestyle that can’t be beat.

Your Texas fishing charter adventure with Capt. Cody will begin in Rockport and could end up exploring the Coastal Bend fishing grounds near San Jose Island, Fulton, Aransas Pass, Corpus Christi, Austwell, Seadrift, Portland, Port Aransas, and many other destinations in this wonderful area.

Capt. Cody has a 17ft flats boat that is a great fit for coastal fishing in Texas. She runs on a 30hp Suzuki engine that can easily power her around the backcountry and flats of the Copano and Aransas Bay. On deck, you will see a casting and poling platform, and a cooler will keep your drinks and snacks fresh. This vessel has all the proper safety and navigational equipment needed for success on your fishing trip.  

We offer full and half day fishing charters that will have you fishing along the gulf coast of Texas. We provide rods, tackle, flies, water, and ice on each trip. You will need a Texas fishing license with a saltwater stamp before the trip, and sunglasses, non-marking footwear, sunscreen, and a hat are recommended as well.

Our fishing charters specialize in fly fishing the clear flats for Redfish, Black Drum, and Speckled Trout. These species can be found in shallow waters year-round and the most exciting way to target these fish is by sight fishing. Although we specialize in saltwater fly fishing. The conventional angler is not left out in the cold and is very much welcome. Using light spin tackle, we target Redfish with soft plastics and lures.

A afternoon half day charter is the best option for the winter months to allow water temps to rise slightly. So that the redfish will move onto the flats to feed, creating the best sight fishing opportunities. Wintertime can also be the best time of the year to land a large "bull red". During the winter months water clarity also improves, which makes spotting the fish and presenting a fly much easier.
