Weekly Fishing Reports by Capt. Grant Coppin - Texas Fishing Tips
Fishing Charters for Laguna Madre, Baffin Bay, Corpus Christi Bay, Redfish Bay, Nueces Bay
My name is Grant Coppin and I am the owner of Backlash Charters. I have lived on the Texas Coast for 13 years and have been guiding the local waters here in the coastal bend professionally, for the last 7 years. I can’t imagine a more fulfilling or rewarding occupation then waking up every morning on the Texas coast and fishing for a living. I grew up in central Texas until I was 18 years old when I moved to Corpus Christi to pursue my passion for the outdoors. I wanted to be a Marine Biologist so I completed my degree at Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi. After that I continued my career in academia while at the same time fishing professionally on the FLW circuit with my tournament partner and father, Danny Coppin. We were a very successful team placing in many top ten’s and top five’s. We were a highly ranked team, qualifying for five consecutive tournament championships. During my Graduate studies I was approached by several of my class professors, who all told me that I would have to choose between my educational career and my fishing career. The choice to me was simple. I became a fishing guide in the summer of 2007 and have been ever since. I still fish tournaments from time to time and in 2014, I plan on fishing one of the redfish tours again. My primary goal when I take a group out, whether it is a group of old high school buddies or a family of four, is to insure that every person on the boat has a great and enjoyable experience and builds some lasting memories.
