Capt. Charlie Newton and his wife Beverly.

Captain Charlie Newton has been one of the premier fishing guides for Rockport, TX for more than four decades. His charter business, aptly named “Redfish Charters”, has provided amazing fishing for thousands of clients that became friends and family. He, and his amazing wife Beverly Newton, have served as a hub for people traveling to our little coastal town regarding where to stay, eat, fish, shop, and relax. If they don’t know where something is – it doesn’t exist! This power couple has been a mainstay institution known to many in the community, and their most notable contribution has been raising up the next generation of fishing guides, particularly their grandson Captain Aerich Oliver.

For the last several years, Captain Aerich has been the working captain for both Redfish Charters and his own company Rockport Paradise Outfitters. While Redfish Charters was strictly fishing, Rockport Paradise Outfitters offered both hunting and fishing charters. This transition has allowed for the same outstanding quality charters repeat customers call Redfish Charters for, while allowing Captain Aerich Oliver to offer an expanded menu of services.
