Texas Gulf Coast & All It Offers!  

Coastal bay fishing offers great excitement for the entire family. In shore fishing, flounder gigging and bow fishing is what we specialize in. Some of my greatest memories we're walking shorelines with a lantern gigging, wadding shorelines under birds for speckled trout and redfish. Bow fishing for black drum, flounder, and alligator gar is also challenging and fun. Bow fishing is usually done along with my flounder gigging if the conditions are right.

                             

Boy how our tools have improved. My 2014 flounder/Bow fishing boat with every accessory you can think of gets the job done. We can fit up two five people so no need to leave anyone home (fun for your entire family). The LED underwater and above water lights , light up the entire front of the boat so it's like an endless aquarium. With the Honda fan engine we cover miles of shorelines compared to what we used to cover. Dolphins work next to the boat checking us out as we work the shorelines. The 250hp mercury jet will get us up into back lakes that see very few boats so possibilities are endless. This boat also allows for an excellent daytime bay boat to run extremely shallow pursuing redfish in the back lakes.

For the night trips we generally leave dock at around 9pm so boat traffic is usually not an issue these busy summer days there are hundreds of boats out in the day and just a few at night. Generally temperatures are awesome it's usually 75-80 degrees out at night. We usually have two people at a time gigging on the front deck and alternate out the other's. Night trips generally last 4-6 hours.

                               

For the day trips as long as we have a breeze blowing temperatures stay manageable we leave marina usually early in the morning to capitalize on the morning bite. All tackle, bait and fish cleaning is provided. We generally target multiple species of fish but target the one's most readily available first. I offer a half day and full day trip for day time fishing.

Make memories that last a lifetime for your family. Give flounder gigging a try during the cool of the night or call me,
