3-16-2015: I've been chasing the big black ugly black drum and haven't been red fishing this week. Well I guess the redfish got hungry and decided to bite. They bit on dead shrimp and mullet today. We caught a lot undersized reds but managed to get out limit of legal size in also. South Bay and the Sail boat Channel have had lots of hungry reds in then. Get out there and give them a try.

OFFERING BAY FISHING AND NIGHT FLOUNDER GIGGING TRIPS

Active Military - 10% Discount!     Families w/ Children Welcome!

3-16-2015: Bay Fishing and Flounder Gigging have been great so far this March!  We have been finding many schools of redfish coming into the flats already which means this spring and summer are going to be one of the best year's ever!  Remember that the fishing conditions in March typically mean - moving around to find the fish, so don't get stuck on a location. Just because they were there yesterday doesn't mean they are there today. Although the cold fronts are weakening now, the water temps are still cool - so be prepared to fish the drop-offs near the flats... but for the most part, the Redfish will be holding over shallow water around mid-day, getting some sun then dropping back down to drop- offs during the night. Redfish this time of year are picky eaters.  If you're fishing bait, you'll find that one day they want cut mullet, the next peeled shrimp.  Live shrimp has been working for specks along the edges of the ICW and drifting has proved to be the best way to throw-your bait up against the banks. Flounder have been plentiful but mostly seeing the smaller flounder with a couple of nice-sized ones a night mixed in!

CEDAR BAYOU IS OPEN - LET'S GO WHERE THE WATER IS PRISTINE AND THE FISH ARE ALWAYS BITING!!!

Hello everybody. Catching has been pretty darn good lately. I have been using mullet for catching the redfish and Fish Bites for black drum. Both of these fish will give your biceps a work out. The water temp was 59 this morning and will climb into the 60's with the sunshine we are getting on March 13th. I took out a long time client today along with his dad and at our first stop we landed 4 bruisers in the 27 to 28 inch range and lost a couple. The fish were still there but it was obvious that we had worn out our welcome so we made another stop and within 5 minutes we had our last two reds. I tried to catch some drum however the two schools we fished on were not having anything to do with us. Managed to box one . That's ok . You win some and you lose some. We had a great time on the water and if you would like to go I would be glad to take you fishing. Remember we are here once ; don't waste it............
I ENJOY FISHING WITH KIDS. IT BRINGS BACK MEMORIES WHEN MY DAD TOOK ME FISHING AS A YOUNG BOY TOO........BRING THE KIDDOS PLEASE!!

3-2-2015: As color begins to fill the morning sky, you sail your soft plastic through the crisp damp air. With a slight "plop" it lands leaving a small expanding ring of ripples as it begins its decent in the gin clear water. You twitch the rid tip gently, trying to allow the bait to stay in the water column a foot under the surface as long as possible. You notice a movement and work the bait one solid jerk then wait. It paid off, you feel the tell tail "THUMP" then a slow pull away as you rare back on your rod to allow the hook to do its job. Suddenly the water erupts in front of you as a behemoth of a trout breaks through the surface trying to free itself from a artificial bait it has been fooled into eating. In a few minuets of fury, she is in your hands and you hold the spoils of victory for a picture of a lifetime.  While no one can guarantee a stringer of fish, a successful day can be measured by good times, good friends, and stories that last forever.  Trout have been good while wading, redfish and black drum are plentiful for boat fishing. Lures are fair to slow on producing large numbers but can still provide a fun day of line pulling action. Live bait and fresh dead has been the best producers lately. Also, we are having great times catching and releasing oversized black drum lately. If your looking for a great time on the bay, give me a call. I still have a few days open in March, so lets go have some fun!

Come on down, spend a day fishing, and some quality time with friends and family.

Heck, you can probably write it off as Saltwater Therapy - if you try!

3-16-2015: Hello To Everyone, Please read my March 2015 Article on Fishing, Hunting, being Prepared, and Picnics!!!

The fishing three days ago was phenomenal with a 28-1/2 inch Red within 5 minutes on the first cast! The next two days were very slow. The 3 kids and the father that I had taken out had a chance for the next two days at 12-14 Reds, plus one Black Drum. The poles bent over, but they only put 3 in the box. When the fish are this finicky you can
not let any slack in the lines, or they are off the hook, and that is exactly what happened. The Dad told me at the dock they had a great time fishing with me and texted me later the same message. I appreciated their comments, but I was rather disappointed of just three fish in the box. Well that is called fishing, or rather "catching". This time of the year, and any time of the year, keep tight lines. You'll catch more fish. Use Sea Lice and/or shrimp and let them run before you set the hook. Again, these fish are finicky,
so be very slow to set the hook. Please contact us and "lets go catch you some memories".
Contact me if you're interested in wading for Reds and Blacks.

On another note "Prime Red Fishing Time" is just around the corner, so why not book a trip or two, now!

3-16-2015  As the weather is improving and so is the fishing. Water temperatures are in the 60's. This means much more active fish and better fishing. Redfish have been very good in the flats. Schools of fish are starting to show and there's more to come with warming temperatures. Pin perch, mullet have been working.
Redfish our also biting on soft plastics in darker colors with a 1/8 ounce jig head. Black drum have been great on dead and live shrimp with good numbers. Look for these fish in the shell. The Big Drum are still in the ship channel biting on sea lice and cracked crab. Trout fishing is improving on soft plastics and live shrimp for wade fishermen. When fishing for trout remember to keep your presentations slow. Look for these fish to be relating to shell and
muddier bottoms using a 1/8 ounce jig with a soft plastic. Spring Break is on and the fish are on!  This year has all the makings of a great fishing year!

Still have a few days left around Easter and Memorial holidays!  Book Now - Weekends Fill-Up Fast!

3-16-2015:  The weather certainly has straightened out. Highs or in the high 60's to mid 70's. So Nice!! the fish think so too. boat limits of reds and black drum are common in the Aransas area. Drum are eating shrimp and reds are eating shrimp, perch and mullet. Trout are also catchable in different bays and are eating soft plastics. they are also providing great action on live shrimp and a popping cork. Spring Break is here and the weather has really cooperated nicely. Catching will only get better as both air and water temp warm. do not miss your chance for great fun and action.

Update: March 16, 2015

Spring Break is officially in gear now and the first 2 days I've been able to limit out my clients on their redfish fairly easy. The hard part has been finding bait and the lack of wind.
I've also found a few black drum but they have not been as eager to bite as the Reds have been. I still have a few dates yet to book during Spring Break, and the rest of March as well. Not to mention the dates I have available during April. I love this time of year fishing because it's not so hot and the lack of available baitfish in the bay's.

Give me a shout and we'll go catch 'em!!

 FLOUNDER GIGGING AT NIGHT IS FANTASTIC! 

3-16-2015: Hello Gigging Fans!  We have had some great weather finally after numerous cold & rainy days. The winds have been nice and calm this past week, making way for some awesome flounder gigging. It is unbelievable how many 13 1/2 inch flounder that are around every night. I have been counting at least 100 or so. They will be keeper fish in another two or three months, perfect timing for some major flounder gigging action during the summer time. With all the flounder beds that are around and the strong outgoing tide at night , I believe the flounder are scooting off the bank a few hours after the sun sets. I have been finding most of my flounder early in the night. The flounder are hanging around short seagrass and hard sandy bottoms.  I have heard reports of a good amount of flounder being gigged up and down the coast. Also, good numbers on sheepshead and drum. Hopefully, we are finally starting to see a little bit of payoff from the new regulations. As long as they leave the regulations as is, and don't decide to add any more dates or drop limits, it will suit me just fine.  There is lots of gigging action taking place at the coast, call now to RESERVE your trip 361-790-3271!

3-16-15:  As we journey through Spring and into Summer, look for Redfish on the grassy flats and along shoreline drop-offs. When you see shiny popping and flipping mullet, shrimp, and other baitfish rest assured the redfish wont be very far away. If you concentrate on fishing extremely shallow water of about 10” to about 1’-6” keep your eyes peeled for a glistening Redfish tail to pop out of the water. If you don’t like to chance fishing shallow water with your boat or wading, you always have other opportunities. This is what I like to call “pothole hopping”. Look for Redfish to feed on moving water such as incoming and outgoing tides.

3-16-2015: Fishing has been good for reds if you're using the right bait at the right time. They can be picky and you need an assortment of bait on the boat. Were catching reds on cut shad frozen from last year or cut mullet. Some days sea lice are working as well. Were getting a few fish on live shrimp. Trout action hasn't gotten into full gear yet with the water temperature so low. It should start though in a couple of weeks. The shad should start showing up then as well.
