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.

5-17-2015 Hello to all! Well we
had our share of rain. But This has not slowed the fishing down. For
all the Trout fishermen the croaker have arrived and the trout bite
has been great. We've had limits coming in steadily. Trout our
holding on the grass beds in 3-4 feet of water. A Crocker free lined
will get you bit. We can look for the trout fishing to get better
and better as we go further into summer. Redfish are excellent in
1-2 feet of water. Work the sand pockets and shell pads. There
biting on a verity of baits. Try shad, pin perch and sea lice. If
you like to throw artificial try a gold spoon early and late. The
black drum our biting on live and fresh dead shrimp around the shell
in 2-3 feet of water. We had some high tides the last couple of
weeks and it's brought a lot of fish in the bay's and flats. Our
fishing will be at its best from May thru October. I would also like
to remind everyone that the best days to fish are during the week if
possible. You will see less boat traffic on the water and better
conditions. But then again the best time to fish is when you can.
Hope to see you soon - weekends fill-up fast, so book your trip now!
Still have a few days left
this month! Have a great Memorial Day!

Hello Everybody! If you have not planned your trip to the
Coast please do so. I think this year will be phenomenal! The
weather pattern is causing lots of rain but it will turn nice again.
Even in spite of the rains, the fishing has been great1 Reds
are all over the flats and eating anything you put in front of them.
Once again...boat limits have been common for a while and over sized
reds are not uncommon. trout are here and coming in everyday. Shrimp
and a popping cork is the best option, but they will also hit
artificial presentations. Croaker are here, but still on the
small-side - and the last time I had checked the bait stands in
Aransas Pass, they were still not bringing them in due to their
small size. So we wait for a little while longer, but
otherwise the fishing has been producing great numbers of redfish
and some black drum too!

GIGGING AT NIGHT IS FANTASTIC!
Gigging Fans! After the big rains up and down the coast the
past couple of weeks and the relentless high winds, the gigging
action has been hot and heavy! We have had some big bull tides
over the last couple of weeks, and there has been some big schools
of flounder pushed in from the Gulf up onto the flats. With the
water temperature hanging in the mid-70s and the slow incoming tide,
the flounder have been wanting to come up into the shallows early in
the night. I have been finding most of my fish on hard sand around
title movement points of the island. The flounder are averaging 15
to 18 inches. It has been taking about 4 hours to gig a 20 fish
limit with very few drum and sheepshead. It looks like we are
going to have some awesome flounder gigging this summer! Don't wait,

redfish action has been good. Their wanting pin perch, sea lice, cut

5-17-2015: When fishing in Rockport Fulton Texas this year
make sure you keep a good look at the weather because with these
slow moving fronts mixed with low pressure makes it rain with
dangerous thunderstorms that means lighting that's no fun fishing in
holding onto a fishing pole. Hey! The croaker are here in the flats
and the bait stands sell out quickly every morning. Croaker are the
bait of choice for speckled trout - at this time of year. If the
wind this time of the year wouldn't blow so hard (but it does and
that makes it tougher fishing), try to go early morning or late
(around sunset) when the wind dies down and you can fill the ice
chest up with trout! Or course, the tides are running high with all
the rain - which makes it easier to get into the flats that you
can't normally drift in to. I snuck-up on a nice school of drum that
were loving cut mullet, crab and shrimp...and catching them on a
muddy bottom or a mix of grassy areas too! One of this past week's
customers caught a nice-size drum in a grassy areas. Sometimes -
even fishing on mixed shell can help so move around some, try
different underwater conditions and come up with a great day on the
water! Thanks for reading!!

LET'S GO WHERE THE WATER IS
PRISTINE AND THE FISH ARE ALWAYS BITING!!! CEDAR BAYOU IS HOT!!!
everybody . Fishing has been pretty darn good for me and my clients. I
took out the Seale party of five a couple days ago . My plan for that trip
was to fish only two spots. I had been fishing a location that was
producing later in the morning so I had looked in my notes from previous
years for this time of year and noticed a spot that kept popping up in my
notes. I decided to fish it and boy howdy I was glad I did. I never had to
go to my second stop . When we started fishing it was steady catching for
there on out . I guess we had about 5 in the box when all the sudden we
started catching some hard heads. Darn it !!! I decided to stop fishing
for about 15 minutes in hopes that the hard heads would move on. It
obviously worked because we started catching redfish once again. We stayed
put and boxed 15 redfish . After we caught the five limits I needed to
check and see if the other spot was holding it's own . Put out two poles
just as a test and rods started bending. Come getcha some !!!
I ENJOY FISHING WITH KIDS. IT BRINGS BACK MEMORIES WHEN MY DAD TOOK ME

5-17-2015: Trout are showing on Traylor Island hitting on croaker
while the Redfish are all over Estes Flats hitting cut shad! Fishing
has been great - in spite of the rain, I have found them! Mud
Island and Allynís Bight have been holding trout and reds in good numbers
and the high tides are making Cedar Bayou very accessible with some
trophy-size reds and larger trout. Even the Black Drum fishing has
turned on significantly - and I've seen some pretty large school of
drum this past week eating the shrimp under a popping cork. If you
fish the Second Chain, you'll find the reds and trout both are eating
shrimp under a popping cork - they both seem pretty hungry in the mornings
too and late afternoon. When I went over to the Matagorda shoreline,
there were some super trout hitting topwaters and my customers where
very happy about that! Reefs in San Antonio Bay are producing
trout, reds and drum - all in good numbers and they were also hitting live
shrimp on popping cork as well as chomping-down on croaker!
is Coming! Book your Trip Early - before itís too late! Still have open
weekdays in May!

5-17-2015: Hello To Everyone, How
about some rain, then how about some more rain, and then...? Yes, it
is wet and if you're located in the Coastal Bend to Austin you have
been getting rain and a lot of it. The ironic thing about it two
years ago we were crying for rain, therefore, I'm not griping about
moisture now! Get a rain slicker and as long as it's not lightning
lets go catch some Reds and Trout . If you are drifting free line
your bait and if you are anchored up in the grass use a cork in the
potholes. The bait stands have Croakers, Shrimp, Mullets, etc. In
certain areas you will need Croakers, in other areas you will need
shrimp, so keep throwing both till one proves productive. Like I
say, get a rain slicker, and "lets go catch you some memories!"
Contact me if you're interested in wading for
Reds and Blacks...and let's go make some memories!

Bay Fishing and Flounder Gigging FINALLY THE WEATHER
PATTERN HAS CHANGED! The fresh water in the bays has put
SPRING FISHING FEVER IN EVERYONE WHO LIKES TO FISH! 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
April typically mean - moving around to find the fish, so don't get
stuck on one, single location. Just because they were there
yesterday doesn't mean they are there today. Be prepared to
fish the drop-offs near the flats for redfish and all along the
reefs for trout! Redfish will be holding
over shallow water around mid-day, getting some sun then dropping
back down to drop-offs during the night. If you're fishing bait, you'll find that one day
cut mullet, the next peeled shrimp and yet again, shrimp on a
popping cork! 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 at night! Try a night=time
flounder trip - like nothing you've ever done before!!!
