Hello To Everyone, Fish "catching" has been an on again off again
experience to explain it gently. The August Article I wrote seems to
be right on target. You're not going to load a box every time you go
out. I know I try as hard as anyone to put the clients on the fish,
but sometimes the fish do not get the memo to eat. For instance,
when my Family and I went in the airboat we saw hundreds of Reds and
Black Drum. They simply would not hit our bait. Strange as it may
seem that's just the nature
of the beast, on again off again. Use shrimp for the Black Drum,
Croakers and Piggies for Trout/Reds. I'm seeing more and more clues
by the way the fish are acting that the "Prime Time Red Fishing
Time" is just around the corner. Please book a trip, or two with us
and "lets go catch you some memories". Also, please read my August
Article and check out the photos. I believe it will hit home for

8-15-2014 - Hey There Flounder Gigging and Bay Fishing Enthusiasts!
are still looking at good numbers of flounder out there, however
I've noticed their not eating as much, kinda like when we get hot
were not hungry, they are also burying themselves in the mud a lot
now because the water is 88 degrees like a bathtub!
Its been brought to my attention the bite for reds is very short in
the mornings again try the late evening instead I'm sure you will
have much more success were still having way low tides in the
evening and dirty water, but those of us doing this regularly have
learned to adapt. May your fishing always be catching Stay safe everyone and

GIGGING AT NIGHT IS FANTASTIC!
Fellow Giggers! This summer has been fantastic. The flounder
gigging is still going strong, very productive with the full moon
and low tides. We have been gigging our limit of flounder by
midnight, some nights earlier. I had Brandon & his wife from Padre
Island, on the boat last night. They asked me to come down & gig on
the Upper Laguna Madre. I went down there knowing it would be a
perfect night with light SW winds and a falling tide. We gigged
their limit of 10 flounder in about an hour, we even passed a few
smaller ones for a chance at some nicer size fish. Most averaging 3
pounds each. Drum are out and we have been gigging 5 to 10 drum a
night, with a few sheepshead. After I dropped Brandon & his wife
off, I decided to go back out commercially. I headed south from the
JFK bridge and took Lower Laguna Madre - about a 45 minute boat
ride. Water clarity was absolutely horrible, I couldn't see deeper
than 18" of water with brown tide everywhere. It took me til 6:00am
to find my 30 fish limit. I had 8 flounder weighing over 7 pounds -
I still have a few dates available
for the end of August & September - Give me a call to - Reserve -

As the summer comes to a
close and the kiddos are getting ready to head back to school ,
donít give up on the fishing as it seems to be getting better. Well
folks, the Redfishing seems to be on the up rise. We have been
catching some tournament size Redfish. We have been targeting the
redfish shallow with topwater lures and bait early in the morning,
and once the sun comes up we have still been sightcasting to schools
of black drum and redfish on the flats.
I also specialize in Sight Casting or Sight Fishing for Redfish it
is an art that only one can appreciate when being successfully
taught. Once you catch your first "sightcasted" fish you will really
appreciate the thrill of feeding the fish and watching the eat. Iím
going to be honest with you in all aspects. My number one must in
sight fishing/casting is to buy the best pair of polarized
sunglasses you budget will allow. My personal preference is my Costa
Del Mar 580 glass lenses in amber with the green mirror. (hammerhead
model) Be sure you choose a frame that lets the minimal amount of
outside light in as possible meaning buy the right frame to fit your
face. Not all people will have the same comforts in frame.
Some of the other things that are very important in sight fishing is
being able to tell which way the fish is facing you want your lure
to pass in front of him/her vs. behind. Being able to cast small
lures accurately to fish will greatly improve your success rate for
catching fish by sight. Itís not always about filling the box with
fish! Sometimes feeding/catching one Redfish by sight casting or on
a topwater lure where you can see the explosion when it hit can be a
trip maker especially if it is your first time fishing without bait.
When you are constantly casting lures for the most part of the day
it will also make you a better caster and get more familiar with the
rod/reel. Patience is the key to catching fish on lures. Please
select your fishing guide and stick to the guide you like and he/she
will learn your strengths as well as weaknesses to better fit your
fishing style. We as fishing guides all want to see the kids catch
fish so they become addicted to fishing as they grow as opposed to
out running around on the streets. We work first hand with the kids
to make sure they have fun and make memories after all we are here
to learn and to have a good time. I will touch more on sight fishing
in the near future. Please keep me in mind when booking your next
fishing trip. I can be reached at 361-726-5255 or through my website

redfish, wade fishing, fly fishing, or fishing with artificial lures,
Capt. Ron can take care of everything for your next fishing trip.
Trout fishing has improoved since the wind backed off and set up
several days of very calm weather that allowed lots of us to get to
the surf. Its loaded with nice trout and limits are caught in an hour
or so of fishing. When the wind gets back up we will be fishing the
flats as well as Corpus Christi Bay. Were doing real well in the bay
as long as the wind allows us to fish there. Live piggy perch has been
the better bait for both trout and reds. Most of the larger reds have
schooled up now so unless you can find one, the alternative is to find
scattered reds in the 20 to 23 inch range. Trout are in deeper
channels, around the wells and reefs. Watch the heat on the water. I
have had to bring people in suffering from heat related conditions
have openings for September and October when the weather is cooler.

Meet Capt. Kevin McCoy
Has the weather the last few days shaped up very nicely. We have had
very light winds and the water is finally cleaning up. Trout are
still here and still eating piggy perch and croaker. Boat limits or
near boat limits are the norm if the weather cooperates. If it is
windy 20 trout are common. there is only a few weeks left of the 10
fish limit on trout. Don't miss out. Reds are in the flats eating
piggy perch and pin perch. I have not red fished in a while, but I
am being told the afternoon is the time to be red fishing. the next
two weeks should be awesome-if the weather continues to hold! Once
school starts there will certainly be less traffic on the water
making for some very pleasant and peaceful days.

Fishing has really heated up the last few days we have caught easy
limits hope this continues through September. We have been finding
redfish in shallow flats typically 12-16 inch water depths. Find
small sand pockets adjacent to larger areas of grass these fish have
been hiding in the grass working into pot holes frequently eating
cut baits and live baits. Trout have been best along dagger inland
find the slicks, in coming tide has been best for the trout. We have
also found some nice size trout in the flats while fishing for
redfish. Tide has been extremely low so be careful while navigating
the waterways. Hopefully tide will come up to its usual levels soon.
Floundering has been great as we'll. Several 20"+ flounder and
limits on a few night gigging trips this week. Flounder are holding
on the extremely shallow edges and grass lines along the shorelines.
Peak movement time has been after 11:30pm. There has been lots of
bait mixed with the flounder do to the low tides but mixed with this
bait has been were there hanging out. Give me a call to reserve a
Nighttime flounder trip or for a day trip at 361 463-6545!

INTERESTED IN HUNTING?
I've been extremely busy for the last
couple if months and I've been slacking on my fishing reports. I'm
sorry for that for those of you that look forward to reading updated
fishing reports. My clients were limiting on their reds, but a few
weeks ago the water level really dropped and we were smoking the
reds and black drum most days. Then the water started coming back in
somewhat and kinda scattered the fish i was on. With last week's
super moon, and adding to the equation of rising water and slick
calm winds, i had a really rough week fishing. It was more fishing
rather than catching. Now that we're on the waning side of the moon
my fishing, or lets say catching, has once again been good since
last Sunday. School starts back here before long so i know most of
you are done with the coast thing for now, but for those of you that
are not, I still have plenty of open dates to fill in September and
October. I am really looking forward to fall fishing and some cooler

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

SPECIALIZING IN TROPHY
REDFISH, SPECKLED TROUT & BLACK DRUM
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,

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.
