TEXAS COAST hosted trip
 with BLUE LAGOON LODGE 

The South Texas Coast is a wild and diverse ecosystem home to multiple bird species, dolphins, and of course fish. Join us at Blue Lagoon Lodge for 3 days of flats fishing for Texas Redfish. 

THE DETAILS

This is a fully guided all-inclusive trip. You will be hosted at Blue Lagoon Lodge a comfortable "airbnb" style home right on a canal system in Rockport Texas. We'll be using this as our home base as we launch the Skiffs from different points in and around Rockport to fish the vast expanse of marshland flats for Redfish, Black Drum, Sea Trout, Sheepshead, and if you're lucky, maybe even a flounder. 

Fishing will happen from amazing poling skiffs captained by owner/operator Captain Joe and the team at Blue Lagoon. Meals will be enjoyed on the boat while fishing and cocktails & dinner will be prepared back at the lodge by your hosts. Evenings will be spent tying flies, chatting about the fish caught & lost, and looking over our photos from the day. Fishing gear, if needed, can be provided. Since this trip is open to anglers from around the globe, travel details are available upon request.
