This message may be too late, but most folks are having their best luck fishing around rock jetties (like the marina entrances, or the one at the end of Rockport Beach Park. Otherwise try to find some dropoffs or potholes and fish those.

Good luck and enjoy your weekend!

With the wind the way it is I'd probably go with live or cut bait. You might give plastics a try, like a DOA shrimp.

I use 12lb test and a spinning reel with a 7ft rod.

If you want to wade you might want to try Airport Park (off the road behind the airport by the end of the runway) or the area right before you get to the Copano Causeway heading to Goose Island.

Rockport can be good fishing, but it ain't Hawaii

About the only thing like spearfishing down here is flounder gigging. You would probably need a guide to show you where to go.

Good luck.

Ya know what, I just saw your duplicate post in the Fishing Hole section on this site

Boy, I overlooked your insulting spelling of Texas and tried to give you some fishing hole tips. Good, honest advice because I live, work, and fish down here. Then I see your fishing hole thread and have decided that you are a prime non-Texan a-hole You keep asking for advice in this thread, but in your duplicate thread you insult everyone who posts??? What an azzhole

Get your rear out of Rockport and don't come back. I hope you got sunburned, mosquito-bit, and skunked. I also hope you blow a head gasket on the way home.

Aloha, butt wipe
