8-1-2014: Hello fellow fishermen. Fishing has remained steady with good numbers of trout being caught on live croaker on days with light winds. Dagger and Traylor island are holding fair amounts as well as the mid bay reefs in Aransas bay. Upper slot sized reds are in the deeper sand pockets in Redfish bay. Cut mullet, perch, and crab are the baits that they are preferring. Lots of black drum being taken on dead shrimp and Gulp lures in the back lakes of San Jose island with some good size to them. Don't forget the sunblock and drink plenty of water.
Call early to book your SUMMER VACATION FISHING TRIPS! 

It's gonna be a great season! 
Until next time, good luck and be safe out there on the water.

8-1-2014: Hello To Everyone, I have been reporting to you in the past Fishing Reports that I have been fishing south of the JFK Causeway. There have been a lot more fish hitting there for me than in the Rockport area. There have been some reports of good stringers in the Goose Island area, but I personally can not verify that. In the JFK/King Ranch Shoreline I can. I will have to admit though even in the Marker 37 vicinity "fish catching" can be slow, but not very often. To me, and I understand several other Guides, Trout fishing this year has been really strange. It seems about as strange as changing the 10 Trout Limit to 5 starting September 1, 2014. One can only imagine the domino effect this change will bring. Keep throwing Croakers in the potholes and throw doubles when "the bite" slows.
Please contact me and lets go "catch you some memories".
You can contact me via our website...www.tigernetfishguideservice.com, by our e-mail... tigernet@cableone.net or just pick up the phone and call!

I promise I'll give you 120%  of Pure Fishing Excitement so...

Let's Go Fishing!!!

8-1-2014 - Hey There Flounder Gigging and Bay Fishing Enthusiasts!

Hi fishing and Gigging friends, we really have had some low tides out of Aransas pass of late ,but we've also had some great numbers of flounder too! We are still catching limits and/or near limits in our area.  I personally can't remember it being this good in the last several years ,everybody has been extremely happy. One of the things I want to bring up during this report is respect, don't pull in on someone working a shoreline and cut them off, its just plain not courteous.  There's lots of miles of shoreline out there so let's give each other space!  For the rod n' reel guys, theres tons of reds in every gut during low tide, get some bait and go out at 9-10 pm and catch plenty in the flats!

May your fishing always be catching!
Stay safe everyone and let's go catch some fish,

 FLOUNDER GIGGING AT NIGHT IS FANTASTIC! 

8-1-2014: The flounder gigging is staying HOT and HEAVY this summer. The tide status has been very unusual this summer. We have had extremely low tides at night for about 3 weeks. The areas that I usually fish this time of year are dry. Due to the fact that there is very little water in the flats. With our bright, sunny days and low water - the water temperature is extremely warm around Estes Flats. I have been gigging all of my flounder by deep bodies of water, on real tapered, sloped banks. We've been gigging 20 fish limits in about 4 hours. Most still averaging 2 to 3 pounds each, with a few 5 to 7 pounds - great size for this time of year. Black drum are starting to be seen more regularly, getting about 2 to 5 drum a night. I have been gigging flounder down around the Rockport/Port Aransas/Aransas Pass areas for about 18 years commercially, and guiding for 9 years. It is truly a blessing to be able to truly do what you love and be able to make a living. Thank YOU! 
Still a few open dates available during August! RESERVE your trip NOW! Come make memories!

8-1-2014:  Hello everybody . Just fished the Homeyer party ( July 30th ) and we all had a blast . I have been fishing two locations and having great success . We are targeting redfish and black drum . Today we caught 15 black drum and 3 oversized reds. Kinda funny watching these guys fishing for the drum and all the sudden the rod that I put out in back of boat bends so far over that they struggled to get the rod out of the rod holder. Boy these reds that we have been catching are no slouches . They have ranged from 33 inches to 38 inches . After a few minutes we finally are able to land them . If you would like to go fishing with me . Check out my website and give me a call ..............

7-16-2014: Fishing continues to be good between windstorms. Were trout fishing in Nueces Bay. It's full of shell reefs and mud and gets blown out easily but were getting our fish there wind permitting. Aransas Bay and the flats usually remain clear enough to fish but trout and reds here have been hard to find but were getting pretty good results fishing for reds with live croaker, cut shad, and cut skipjack. Were picking up some trout as well while fishing for reds. The wind is calming down now so I expect fishing to return to normal so let me hear from you.

7-16-2014: For a few days I thought the reds had disappeared but they just retreated to shallower water. Yea I do mean shallow, I've been catching them in 8-12" or less water. They haven't changed their appetite, they are still eating cut and live mullet and perch. I've found them off the end of the Klondike and up in Allyns Bite.

7-16-2014:  Hello Everybody,

The wind finally laid and trout fishing has been outstanding with boat limits early (30 to 40 trout) and quality trout mixed in up to 27 inches. The forecast is for the wind to pick starting tomorrow, Thursday the 17th. Hopefully for a short time! I have not red fished for sometime, but I am hearing some days great and then some days very tough. Regardless of weather, catching will be very good and the trout limit changes on September 1, 2014 thanks to the political pressure of CCA even though Parks and Wildlife data and statistics showed an improvement in the trout fishery. There are about six weeks of ten trout per person left so do not miss your chance to come to the Coast. You will not regret it and fun will be had by all.

7-3-2014: Reflecting back on the last few days I recall myself thinking...what a whirlwind! The winds picked up and made us work hard, but all in all we still managed a decent box at the end of the day. Redfish and black drum have been in our local waters of Rockport as well as some good trout if your wading. Large numbers of trout have been further south. Either one you choose, I will try my best to put you on fish. High tides and high winds this week have made it a challenge for everyone. Hopefully soon we will get back to the normal winds that blow 10 to 15 mph and bring the good fishing with them! Remember, give me a call for your next fishing adventure!

We are still catching some nice box's of fish this week. We have been catching almost all are keeper's from large schools due to fishing pressure and low tide conditions they are schooled up. I would start out checking drop offs close to deeper water Dagger, Sunray, mud Island, and sailboat channel in redfish bay would be some great areas to start. Dead shrimp has been bait of choice while fishing the schools. Out of Corpus Christi if you start around bird inland work south drifting the west spoils will produce some nice trout. I have been getting them with soft plastics or throwing free lined croaker. Give me a call at 361 463-6545 to reserve your next business or family fishing trip.
