Welcome to Sport Fishing Texas!

Pot-lickin’ – verb – (slang) 1. The art of using live or dead bait to catch a fish. 2. A jerk on one end of the line waiting for a jerk on the other.

Pot Lickin' is not what we do here!

We offer the services to provide you with a learning experience in the use of artificial lures in seeking inshore game fish in the bays and backwaters of the middle Texas Coast. Our guide services can accommodate up to two persons per day of intense fishing upon the grass flats, bays, bayous and estuaries of Aransas Bay to the Laguna Madre. On board, you will learn the art of drift fishing and stalking trophy Redfish and Speckled Trout in "skinny" water.We teach lure selection, presentation, structure fishing, sight casting, tackle selection and rigging all the while enjoying some of the best fishing the Texas Coast has to offer.

Are you ready for a change?

If you think you are ready to handle a Texas Redfish slamming a top-water, casting for a trophy trout or you are just tired of soaking bait and ready to try something new.

There is a world of artificial lures out there and hundreds of manufacturers. Most lures are made to attract fisherman, not fish.

We will show the ones that work as well as how and when to use them.

Most of all, your going to have a great time!

Captains' Billie and Mike Kocian are proven professional anglers and have years of experience fishing and navigating the bays of Texas and both are USCG licensed and insured.

We will be glad to share our knowledge and experience to help you become a better angler. Explore the pages on this site and we hope to hear from you.
