Capt. Aerich Oliver, USCG Licensed
Hello! My name is Capt. Aerich Oliver. I've been on the water with my legendary grandfather (Capt. Charlie Newton) since I was old enough to walk. As his #1 deck hand, I learned to fish and navigate the bay systems in the Rockport-Fulton area of the Texas Coastal Bend in search of Redfish, Black Drum, Speckled Trout and Flounder. If you're ready to experience the best fishing on the Texas Gulf Coast, then let me take you out on a fishing trip you'll not soon forget! I love to make fantastic memories for all my customers (all skill levels and all ages.) And I especially love to teach younger children how to fish! So, bring the whole family for a fun day on the water. I guarantee it will be unforgettable and I look forward to hearing from you soon!

Gift Cards make super gifts!
It's a nice gift for a day on the water, fishing in the sunshine - and allows you to leave your cares and worries at the dock as you head-out in the open, blue waters of the Aransas Bay Complex!
All tackle, rods and reels provided as well as bait, dry storage for your favorite snacks, drinks and belongings too!
A lot of duck hunts are from shore or from well-camouflaged blinds along the islands. The Captain has a chocolate Labrador Retriever named Coco and she is getting better with her training and retrieving every season! She still has a ways to go to be perfect but she learns easily and quickly! When we arrive at our location I put out lots of decoys - meaning several dozen decoy ducks. Duck hunts begin at legal shooting time which is 30 minutes before sunrise. We leave earlier to set-up and hunting ends at 10am.
TRY A BLAST & CAST TRIP TO EXPERIENCE THE BEST OF BOTH WORLDS... FOR GREAT HUNTING IN THE MORNING AND FANTASTIC FISHING IN THE AFTERNOON!
