1-19-2015 - Hey There South Texas Giggers and Anglers!!!
It's been wet, cold and windy, doesn't add up to good gigging or even fishing opportunities around here, in fact....but this week promises to be very nice.  I am already feeling a little bit of spring in the air as we approach February.  So, I will have to base my report on just 2 trips this first 2 weeks of January, the weather has just made it really tough. First trip, we went south to my winter time grounds and found Sheepshead, a few Drum in the 20-24 inch range and some small flounder about 6 or so and the largest was 16 inch. We were so cold that we came in after just 2 hours but, we did have around 20 fish total. Some good fillets came off those sheep and drum!  Second trip, was a little warmer weather ,we slammed 20 sheephead in an hour, then we chased a school of good size drum and ended up with 8 all real nice around 24 inch, but they stayed in 2 to 3 foot of water in that full moon and they were hard for my customers to gig. We rounded that night off with 8 flounder and they were all small but fat! All this in about 3 and a half hrs! took me longer to clean then to make this catch .a great catch that weighed in around 150 lbs.Total fish count was 34 fish!
I have some days open still, but we will have to work around the weather a while longer, Fish on Friends!

1-19-2015:  Hello Everybody!

Catching is still great. Reds are in the flats eating piggy and pin perch. the fish are in the upper end of the slot with some oversize mixed in. Trout are still hitting live croaker and soft plastics are working well too. The frontal systems have begun and the water is cooling down. The next two weeks should be good to go BUT I don't think I would want to be a fish!!!!!!!!!!

INTERESTED IN HUNTING?

Call Capt. Brent Hopkins:

 

Update: January thru February 2015

My duck hunting trips have been pretty good overall with a good mixed bag of birds most days. Some days have been tougher than others, but we're still having some good quality duck hunts. We're not quite killing limits every day, but we've been able to get most of our bag limits. Average morning hunts have been consisting around 10-20 birds in the bag. I still have some open dates yet to book if you're looking to get in on some duck hunting. Call me or shoot me an email and we'll see what we can get worked out. I also run afternoon hunts as well if you prefer.
I took some time off during our duck season split (Nov 30 - Dec 13) so I haven't been fishing all that much except for the last week since our duck season re-opened. Catching was a little bit tough a couple of days, but the other days I've spent fishing has been limits of reds as usual for me. Anchor fishing from the boat using mullet, or wading with plastics has been most productive for me. The only thing I can complain about is the lack of wind we've been having around here lately.
This will be my last fishing report for the year, and I will not be posting another report until around mid March 2015 or so. After duck season ends on January 25th, I will be going right into my hog & javelina hunts that I run & sell over a good part of the state. If you're interested in getting in on a fun relaxing kind of hunt, give me a shout and I'm sure we can work you in somehow or another. I offer un-limited hogs & varmints, hunting at night, along with a javelina if you're in the market for this kind of hunt.

Capt. David Dupnik is One of the Most Successful  Flounder Gigging Experts in the Coastal Bend.

 FLOUNDER GIGGING AT NIGHT IS FANTASTIC! 

1-19-2015: Well, the flounder gigging has slowed down quite a bit since late December. Right now the flounder are averaging 3/4 of a pound to a pound and half. Most of the big fish have moved out to the Gulf, and will make their return for the Spring Flounder Run. There are lots of small fish, all under 10 inches - which means good things for the summer time action. We should expect the Spring Flounder Run to begin by late February/early March. March and April produce some of the best flounder gigging in the Coastal Bend. There will be LOTS OF FISH, nice weather and clear water.

1-19-2015: Fishing is still off and on according to the tide level and water temperature. Were catching reds on the drop-offs when the tide is low and on the flats during the high tide. When its in between is when the fishing is slow.. Were getting lots of trout along the ICW when the water is cold enough. Some of those days are better than others and there are also lots of undersize trout mixed in with the keepers. Soft plastics have been the best bait for the trout. Pumpkinseed with chartreuse tail has been the best producer. Were catching reds on lures as well but live shrimp has been a better choice for them. Were also getting some black drum in the channels and deeper holes but not as many as normal for this time of year. Fishing is always good in the winter so plan your trip soon and give me a call 361-774-3817.
I still have openings thru the end of the year... when the weather is cooler.!

However, the big reds are still running so now is the time to catch yourself a tagger, oversized wall hanger. The black drum are very active now and being caught on dead shrimp. Those elusive big black drum seem to be running a bit early so let's get you on the calendar for a fishing trip of your life.

We have had some tougher conditions on the water this January but still catching some nice reds for those willing to brave the conditions. Warming trend is fast approaching and I am looking forward to spring fishing. We or going to have a great year contributed by much needed rainfall, the opening of Cedar Bayou and the increase in bait in our bays last summer. Reds have been eating dead shrimp and cut mullet they have been in the shallow flats in the afternoon getting some sun. Look for mud sturs and active nervous mullet. Trout have been holding in the deeper flats and also around oyster it's best to drift with soft plastics for the trout. Water has been clear so I have been working more natural color's but pink devil eye's have been working also catching a few nice ones with top water's but soft plastics will get you better results. Finding drum in there usual areas deeper guts adjacent to channels and holding up on oyster reefs. Best bait for the black drum has been fish bites or shrimp.

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

Hello everybody. I took the opportunity to do some fishing for myself January 14th . I fished water that was around 8ft deep. I was casting Berkley Gulp soft plastics with a 1/16oz jig head. The fish are deep due to fairly cold water temps. I worked the plastic slow and bouncing it up off the bottom. Remember the fish don't want to expend much energy to get their prey ; so keep your retrieve slow. I also fished with shrimp to catch redfish and black drum. I never moved the boat more than 100ft and had really good success.
I ENJOY FISHING WITH KIDS. IT BRINGS BACK MEMORIES WHEN MY DAD TOOK ME FISHING AS A YOUNG BOY TOO........

1-19-15:  Hey Folks, sorry its been a while, we have been picking up decent numbers of Black Drum schooling up along shorelines and still finding some Redfish and an occasional Flounder on the flats near deeper water guts on cuts.  We have been getting the drum on shrimp.  Keep in mind that Redfish tend to stay up on the flats year round.  I still have a few days left this month and it's not to early to start making plans for Spring Break 2015, Easter and Memorial Day Weekend.  Weekends always fill-up fast so reserve now!

1-19-2015:  January is one of the hard to predict months along the coast. The only thing we are sure of is it will generally be cold, windy, and rain or drizzle. Trout and redfish can still be found if you work at it. Wading for that trophy trout of a lifetime is something many anglers strive for in January and February, and they are often rewarded while working a corky or soft plastic in waist deep water. Several of the bait stands in Rockport have live shrimp and it is a strong producer under a popping cork right now. Concentrate on the drains from the back lakes, muddy bottoms near shoalgrass, and shell banks near mud. Be careful if your going out and always have a plan, especially if your going alone. In the cold months you might consider wearing an inflatable PFD. I myself have stepped off into a drum hole and filled my waders up, and the added cold water shock can put a normally healthy person into hypothermia mode rapidly, especially if your 100-200 yards away from the safety of your boat. There have already been several wading, kayaking and even boating accidents in our local waters which have resulted in search and rescue missions since December. Also anglers that go out to brave the cold and damp weather should carry a spare set of clothes and a towel in a sealed dry bag. More than once that has made what would have been a miserable trip back to the boat ramp into a comfortable and warm ride home.
Until next month, keep what you can use and release the rest to fight another day. God Bless,
Give me THE OPPORTUNITY TO SHOW YOU WHAT I MEAN.
