 FLOUNDER GIGGING AT NIGHT IS FANTASTIC!  CALL: 361-790-3271-

1-1-2017: The flounder gigging around Aransas Pass & Port Aransas has definitely been one for the books during this past December! We have been holding strong on sticking big fish every night - most of the flounder going in the box are between the five to eight pound range. The largest flounder gigged this season was just over nine pounds. The water temperature has maintained in the mid-to-low sixty degrees, and the fish are hanging up in the shallows at night with the better part of the action during the first couple of hours after dark. I have been gigging most of my fish in about two feet of water, over hard sand and short seagrass where there is a lot of current. There was only one time we didn't get our limit after giving up around 2am. Most nights we made it back to the dock with a twenty to twenty-five fish limit by 9:30pm. The next front we are set to get later this week should send the last trickle of big flounder out to spawn, then we will be gigging the smaller winter time fish that stay in the bays year round. Sheepshead and black drum have started to show up with limits of each coming into the dock as well. We had a stellar night on one December trip, with the most fish gigged all year in one trip - 20 flounder, 20 sheepshead, 6 black drum, and 4 pompano!  I have plenty of dates open during the next two months, so please give me a call.
Give me a call TODAY, or you'll be left at the dock. Book your trip NOW!

1-1-2017: December was a very hot start then the cold air hit making it so cold your hands would fill a burning filling that's when you don't want to be on the water till it warms up I would rather be home indoors staying warm. January is a cold month but before and after cold fronts can be some awesome fishing the cold push bait and fish in deeper edges of channels casting mullet, live shrimp, dead, artificial plastic lures, gulp and gold spoons site casting at schools of reds. Nice schools of drum can be site casted at on edges of cuts pitching live shrimp, dead shrimp, and gulp. Trout can be caught throwing in deep part of channels and deep soft muddy bottom on live shrimp, artificial lures, and gulp. Have a very awesome happy holidays Christmas and New Year remember winter fishing is very awesome time to fish just time the fronts so you can fish on a nice day and have fun plus filling up the cooler with fish to bring home.

1-1-2017: Happy New Year everyone! As we start into the new year, fishing has still been consistent. Wade fishing with lures is producing trout and reds with warmer winter temperatures and in between fronts. The reds and black drum have been good on crab and dead shrimp, on the bottom, from the boat. We still are shooting good numbers of ducks, so hopefully it will hold out until the end of the season. So if you are looking to book something in January, we will watch the weather and get some good fishing and hunting in before the month is out. Call to book a cast and blast, or fishing, hunting trip. We look forward to seeing you in 2017!

1-1-2017: Hello To Everyone, As I have been saying for a long time the Duck Season should be phenomenal this year and believe me it is. I was out with a friend checking and setting decoys a few days before the "second half of the split season" started. I literally stopped my Air Boat and watched the Ducks flying because of how amazed I was of how many thousands of Ducks there were. I don't remember seeing that many Ducks in 15-20 years. Needless to say my 4 guys limited out quickly on Red Heads and then we went fishing for the rest of the day. On that day, the "Cast and Blast" day, they had 8 Red Heads ducks, 1 Merganser duck, 3 Reds Fish, and 20 Trout-18-22 inches. The day before, Friday 12/09/2017, it was not Duck Hunting Season...YET!!! But we did catch a lot of good thick fish: 15 Trout-18 to 22 inches, and 2 big Red Fish. One of the Red Fish was 27 3/4 inches and the other Red Fish was 32 1/2. Please contact me by the link that is on the Fishing Report, or text me, and "lets go catch and bag you some memories". Priceless!

1-1-2017: Tides are fluctuating right now. The north winds push water out one day and its coming right back the next. With all that going on, the fish are moving from one area to another from day to day.  Up in the Rockport area we've been getting scattered reds in the pot holes around the shell areas using fresh cut mullet. We have found a few piggies at some of the local bait stands and the reds are tearing them up. Working live shrimp under a popping cork on the flats next to the ICW is producing limits of trout most days.  For you waders out there, hit the reefs in Nueces Bay and work down the sides. Best results the last few days has been with Chicken on a Chain in Down South Lures and Gamblers on a 1/8 screw lock jig head. Just remember to have a partner with you when you go. Be safe and watch out for the other waders out there.

1-1-2017:  Winter time is finally here after a long time in waiting!  Just before Christmas we received a real cold blast that cooled us, and the water, down to near normal winter time temps. Our duck hunting has picked up considerably with this colder weather, and our fishing has slowed down a little. Just before the holidays i was still smoking the fish with ease, but now in January I'm having to work at it a little harder to put a big box of fish together. This time of year you have to pick your days carefully in which to fish. Warming spells with bright sun is the best days in January, but also days with a front passing through can be good as well no matter the skies.

1-1-2017: Fishing has been pretty good on the flats for trout and reds. We're mainly drifting with live shrimp and popping cork. The water temperature is down somewhat. We're catching a number of trout over on the shell reefs in Nueces Bay. If you don't know the bay then don't go there. there are shallow reefs all over the place. The best thing to do is get a guide that is familiar with that bay. It is a good place to lose a lower unit. There we are using purple bass assassins with a chartreuse tail.

1-1-2017: Flounder gigging in the Rockport Texas!  Happy New Year Everyone! December was a warm one - warmer than I've fished in many years - but the flounder were abundant and my customers had no problems getting their limit of flounder. We had one cold front that it was really cold that and it sent the flounder deeper (along with the bait) which definitely made gigging more interesting, but all in all, it was a good December! The above normal, higher tides had flounder and fish in general, scattered but I managed to find them. The sheepshead and black drum were really good the first week of December then it started getting a little harder to get them as the month progressed. Flounder boats though faired very well in spite of the tides and we could just pick them off! That's it for this year and want to thank all the wonderful people that fished with me in 2016... I should be ordering my new boat soon and hope you come back to fish with me again in 2017!! I will give updates on the boat's progress as we move from winter into springtime!  Thanks for looking in and check back next month!!
