Fall is finally in full swing. Temps have dropped a little and the
days are full of sunshine. Fishing has been fair to good. Nueces Bay
is still producing trout off the reefs while free lining piggies.
We've been jumping from reef to reef and getting limits most days
with a few reds mixed in. We've been spending a few days in the
flats between Rockport and Aransas Pass. Using cut mullet has worked
for the most part to get our reds however keep a supply of live
piggies in your live well. Move around a little and work the sand
pockets. Once you find them your limits should come fairly easy.

10-1-2015: Hello To Everyone!
I have recently cancelled several trips due to the Brown/Red Tide
here along the coast line. I've lost approximately 60 dozen Piggies
from my bait basket, so why would I chance, at this time, putting my
clients in "a coughing situation". I have not and will not. This
happens every year with the "tide" just some years the conditions
are worse...like this year. Thousands of baits have been lost not
only from Lac's Bait Stand in Aransas Pass, but from many, if not
all, of the surrounding Bait Stands. The good news is it does not
last forever. It usually last a few days to a few weeks and then its
gone. Now, with all that "Bad News" comes the "Great News", most of
the time after this mess has moved on the stands replenish and the
fishing/catching becomes phenomenal. If you are curious if it has
dissipated please give me a call and I'll fill you in. If it is
"good water" remember this is "Prime Time Red Fishing Time". Book a
trip, or two, and "lets go catch you some memories". While you're at
it book a trip, or two, on a Duck Hunt and "lets take a duck to

10-1-15: We've had some high tides for the last couple
of weeks and it has scattered my fish, and has had me really
hustling to stay on them. Limits have been hard to come by if I've
got 4 clients aboard, but 1-3 clients hasn't been that bad because
I've been able to catch up to 10 or so keeper reds on each trip.
Hopefully we'll start to get some cold fronts in which will cool our
waters and drop our tides making the CATCHING part much easier.
There are some black drum in my fishing area as well but they've
been a little tight lipped. I think a cold front or two would get
the ball rolling on them as well. Most of my weekends are already
booked for October , but I've got several weekdays available if you
can get away to do a little fishing during those days.

Woo doggie the tide is high right now. I had the pleasure of fishing P.
Laudadio and his sons this past Saturday. We left the dock and made our
way to our first stop of the morning. Polled the boat into position and
placed the baits along a shoreline. I noticed the water kinda vibrating
close to shore but thought it was just the wind making something that
wasn't there. Boy was I wrong ; in a matter of a couple of minutes we had
our first rod bend heavily over and noticed that the whole shoreline in
front of us raised up. One of the guys grabbed the rod and it was on or so
I thought. We finally brought it up to the net and realized it wasn't a
redfish ; instead a hefty Cow Nose Ray. All I could do is laugh and
realize we were around a large school of them . Fun to fight but quickly
moved to another location. By the end of the trip we had our 3 limits . If

GIGGING AT NIGHT IS FANTASTIC!
TIDES, LIGHT WINDS! PERFECT WEATHER! The flounder
gigging has been awesome over the last couple of weeks! With
the red tide that was around the area, I was making a longer boat
ride to stay clear of the red tide. I believe it is finally out of
the flats and luckily it did not kill too many of our good fish.
We are gigging a twenty fish limit in about 3 hours. I have been
gigging most of my flounder way back in the back lakes of St. joe
Island. The flounder have been sitting on soft mud and dead seagrass
in about one foot of water. There is only one more month left
of gigging action before they shut us down during November. I do
still have a few weekdays open, but will try my best to accommodate
those interested in late trips on weekends and such. Please give me

Texas! Here we are with fall started, the flounder are
starting to get a little bigger now, and seem to be moving
around making their (beds) every where ,a bed is a spot where
one hung out for a while then moved they leave a tell tale
imprint of themselves in the sand. I hear there are still
redfish on St. Joe across from Rockport, however they seem to
be between 20 and 22 inches, I believe the bigger ones have
migrated to the gulf, never fear, they will be back! some drum
and sheepshead are hanging around the island moorings area of
Port A and their are also some good flounder, watch for them
on the edges of oyster reefs and some are now hanging there
around East flats in the potholes. There has been talk of red
tide in and around corpus bay, this is true ,but the
percentage is so small its not killing any fish that I can
see, last news report had it moving south out of our area,

Whether your desire is fishing for trophy speckled trout, monster bull
redfish, wade fishing, fly fishing, or fishing with artificial lures,
Capt. Ron can take care of everything for your next fishing trip.
Now that September is rolling around, the focus will be on redfish. We
have done better on reds this time of year by locating schools that
hold as many as hundreds of redfish in each school. These reds are
large with many being oversize. These are the fish that are ready to
spawn soon and on their way to the gulf to do so. Were using large
gold spoons to cast into the school. Flats fishing for reds should
also be good but generally they will be somewhat smaller fish. Now

10-1-2015: Hello to all.
October is here and with this month comes Redfish. Redfish will be
migrating through the Jetties and passes. Most of these fish will be
oversized. If your looking for a big bull redfish this is the place.
They will be feeding on a verity of baits such as mullet, perch,
squid and menhaden. People will be lined up at the Jetties for this
traditional migration. In the bay's and flats Redfish will be
schooled up and feeding heavy. Look for these fish in 1-2 ft. Our
tides have been extremely high. This will push the fish up tight to
the shorelines. As for bait pin perch, piggy perch and mullet seem
to be working best. The red tide has not been and issue in the
flats. I seen very little of it and it's pretty spotty in just a few
areas. The winds have been out of the north in the last week. This
will help push it out back into the gulf.

Flounder giggin has already started heating up in September!!
We have been finding BIG flounder pretty much everywhere we
stop with the average weight around 2 1/2lbs. The flounder
have been heavily concentrated right on the points of islands
near deep channels in nice sand. With the tides coming back up
to normal levels and lots of bait everywhere, the flounder
have been literally stacked up on each other with lots of
(double gig) action going on!! With the cold fronts right
around the corner and the (giggin closure) in November, you
need to act now and book a trip. There will be no giggin in
November, and in the 1st two weeks of December we can only gig
2 per person. So book a trip & come out and gig some BIG
flounder with Capt Stephen Mauch and make some memories to
talk about forever.

Look for Redfish on the flats close to moving water areas such as
good tidal flow areas. Walk ankle to shin deep water walking ever so
quietly. Look for glistening tails when the sun is up. Look for
V-Wakes and big pushes of water. Always remember look for high
concentrations of bait. NO BAIT NO REDS. Now is the time of
year to be stalking with a 6-8 Wt fly rod with a White seaducer,
crab pattern or a Gold Spoon Fly. If fly fishing isnít your game
then Bagley Lures makes a rattle-less balsa wood topwater plug that
Iíve fooled tons of redfish with in skinny water (chartreuse). When
fishing dense grassy areas try the DOA 5.5Ē jerk shad rigged with a
5/0 Owner screw lock worm hook. In the cream with gold glitter.
Black Drum: Since the falling of the high tides the black drum
fishing has been good on dead shrimp near drop offs and grass lines
near reefs free lined or on 1/8 oz. jig heads. Speckled Trout:
Trout fishing has been great as well on live Croaker and Piggy Perch
either free lined or under shakers about 1-2í, fishing 4-6í of water
with grass beds look for sweet smelling slicks that pop and fish
close to them. Donít be afraid to get out of the boat and wade those
trout also. Wading can be very productive and donít forget to work
those live baits in the potholes. Live bait on the beach has been
good too. Redfish: Red fishing has picked up and are on the
flats near good tidal flow areas look for reds in 1-3í of water and
make sure to place your baits in the potholes. Top water lures an
also be deadly early in the morning. Use live finger mullet or cut
mullet fish the potholes of your favorite flat.

Hello Everybody, Fishing/Catching is still spectacular. Trout
are eating croaker and live piggy perch. Limits are common and the
fish are running up to 27 inches for me. Reds are also eating
croaker and piggy perch. There are reds in the flats, but they are
not everywhere, just certain places at certain times. reds are also
on scattered shell reefs and usually there are more than one. The
next two weeks hopefully will see a cooling trend for both hair and
water. October however, is normally an awesome month and hopefully
you will have the chance to visit the coast and get in on the
action. You will be glad that you did!

as Redfish are - they might even taste slightly better on the grill
than redfish on the half shell!! Give it a try sometime!!!
Please - don't take
chances. Only Hire a USCG Licensed/TPWD Certified Fishing Captain.
Thanks for reading my report and give me a
call to catch some really BIG FISH!!!
