Iím sure most of us have had enough rain to last us for a while over
the last few weeks, I know I have. All the run off is helping out
our bays tremendously though! Some of our bays are really fresh with
all the run off, but where I primarily fish the water looks great!
With the rain, it has kept our water temps down a little too. Iíve
only had a couple of days having to cancel due to the rain, but all
the other days Iíve been limiting my clients out on their redfish. A
couple days there I didnít quite make their limit, but was only off
one or two fish. For those of you that have fished with me before,
Hey I canít be perfect every day. Iíve also been able to locate some
black drum to add to the box this last week so long as they ďstay
putĒ and not leave the area. Thankfully their bite has been a little
later so that I can get my redfish first. I donít do much
trout fishing these days, but I still fish for them with the clients
that like to wade fish and have the gear to do so. On the days Iíve
fished those clients weíve been able to limit out on the trout as
well along with a few reds to boot once theyíve caught their trout.
I hope everyone has a safe and enjoyable 4th of July weekend. As for
me, Iíll be out on the water getting my clientís rods bent over and
stretching that line!!!
I still have some dates open if you would like to book

GIGGING AT NIGHT IS FANTASTIC!
4TH OF JULY, Gigging Fans! The past week and a half the
gigging has been a little tougher than usual. We were fighting to
contain the dirty water and there was hardly any tidal movement. As
always, I am down for some gigging in just about any conditions and
will try my hardest to get us on the flounder. We were still able to
put limits of flounder in the box, but it was taking a lot of
hopping around from one hot spot to another to locate the fish.
As of 6/27, we are finally on a hard-falling tide early in the night
making for some great gigging action. The tide is pulling crystal
clear water and flatties off of the big shallow flats. Most of
the flounder are ranging from 15 to 18 inches. We have seen very few
drum and sheepshead.

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.
Trout fishing has been good this season and I don't expect that to
change for some time. Live piggies and croaker have been the bait of
choice. Were getting limits of nice size trout 18 to 20 inches on the
reefs in Aransas bay and along the shorelines where you will find
grass beds. There are also some large trout mixed in. Redfish seem to
be spotty around on the flats. Were catching them but it is a little
unpredictable as to where they're going to be. Cut shad has been the
best bait. Cut mullet has been good as well. The reds will be forming
schools pretty soon. August and September are prime months to get in
on some of the redfish action and now is the time to enjoy a great

Floundering has been on FIRE to say the least the last couple
of weeks!! We have been giggin limits of flounder in roughly
two hours with some trips even quicker than that. We have been
giggin flounder from the 15" - 21" range and they have been
averaging 2-3 lbs. Most fish lately have been gigged up pretty
shallow on sand/mud/grass edges of channels. I expect the
floundering to get even better in the next few weeks with an
average water temperature at about 79 degrees. Also, as the
hotter dog days of Summer arrive the winds will lay down and
make for some spectacular nights of flounder giggin on the
water. I am booking early as well as late trips to accommodate
everyone's needs. So if you are able to have a flexible
schedule I will be able to fit you into pretty much any night
that I can. So contact me by phone or email at any time so we
can get you booked and go gig some flounder!!

Someone turned up the heat!!! It's getting hot, tides are dropping
lower and the fish are going deeper. Get out early and target the
shallow pot holes 1st thing. Free-lining croaker is working best for
the trout. After it starts warming up, the trout tend to move to
deeper water where it's cooler. Target the deeper water 5 to 6 feet
deep and after you find them work the area thoroughly. Look for drum
schooling along shorelines. Fresh dead shrimp either freelined or
with a small egg weight above the leader is working best.
Upper Laguna: Trout are being caught along the deeper side of
the spoils. Free-lining croaker is working best. Reds are scattered
in small schools. Working the King Ranch shoreline with live finger
mullet has brought us the best results.

Trout fishing is fair to phenomenal and Red fishing is none existent

Looking for a great Texas coastal fishing guide and if your idea of
adventure is fishing the beautiful, pristine saltwater bays of the
South Texas Coastal Bend area, then you've come to the right place!
Perhaps you'd prefer wade fishing or drift fishing Aransas Bay,
Redfish Bay, South Bay, Copano Bay, San Antonio Bay, Mesquite Bay
and Corpus Christi Bay. If it's more of an eco-style fishing
adventure you're after, then try out a nature and birding trip
around the Barrier Islands - Mustang Island, St. Joe's Island and
other scenic stops along the Intracoastal waterway! When wind
and weather conditions allow, fishing with us will be one of the
greatest experiences you've had on this part of the Texas coast.

7-1-16-2015 Hello to all! The
month of June was a hot month for trout. Limits were brought in
daily on live croaker. Fish for the trout in 3 to 5 feet of water
around grass beds and shell. In the next couple of weeks we should
be getting some piggy perch in for bait. The piggies bring a lot to
offer for both trout and redfish. I can't wait to throw them. The
Redfish bite has been good later in the day with daytime heating.
Look for these fish in 1 to 2 feet of water in the sand pockets and
shell. The bait of choice is pin perch, shad or mullet. The Drum
fishing has been good also on shrimp. Large schools have been seen
in different areas making them easy to target with limits. I would
say June has been very productive for all species. July will be a
little hotter weather and a hotter bite for sure. So come on down
enjoy what we have to offer.
Still have a few days left this

have had extremely high tides the last few weeks and since the
falling of the high tides the black drum fishing has been great on
dead shrimp near drop offs and grass lines near reefs free lined or
on 1/8 oz. jig heads. Speckled Trout: Fishing has been really
good as well on live Croaker 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 croaker. Redfish:
They can be found up tight over grass on topwaters wade them slow in
about.1-2í of water. Remember it is getting hot out there so donít
forget to stay hydrated and be aware of the signs of heat stress

Hello Everybody, Trout fishing is "spec"tacular with boat
limits occurring daily. Croaker is the bait of choice and the
occasional big fish is being boated as well. The weather has been
super. reds are in the flats but are a bit more challenging. One day
they are there and we do well and the next day poof they are gone.
Overall things are well as you would expect and boat traffic is
still light except for Fridays and Saturdays. Most guides still have
a few open days so give one a call and come to the Coast. I think
that you will be glad you did!

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
