4-16-2014:  Hello Everybody!  Weather is still the key word. A strong northern blew in on April 13, 2014---really! Fishing has been hit and miss. One day the reds are there and easy and the next day (literally) they are gone. When everything- air and water temp stabilize for a few days catching is good. When everything is up and down I have to work really hard to find eating fish. They are eating perch some days and then shad some days. Trout are here but spotty and their reaction is the same as red fish. Hopefully, this latest front will be the last major one of the year and things will settle down. The weather has slowed bookings so most guides still have scattered days open. A day on the water is still fun and relaxing way to spend you time.

4-16-2014: Fishing continues to be good for trout as more of them are getting into the bay, The wind has been tough to work around though. We have had lots of days with gusts in the mid to high 40's. I don't advise going out on those days or if you have to then try redfishing with cut perch fished on the bottom. Were getting some reds scattered around on the flats. The tide this week has been lower than I like for this time of year with not much level change through the day but were still picking up some trout while drifting with live shrimp and popping cork. I hope you can come down and get in on the action.

4-16-2014:  While I write this report, I can't help but think of these crazy late fronts that we are still having.  It isn't often the temps drop into the 40's along our coastline in April.  The fish are here and we are seeing them everywhere in the flats, but getting them to eat is a whole different ball game.  You all know I am not one to tell tall tales, so if I tell you we are catching or not, that's the fact.  With that, some days we seem to be the windshield and others we are the bug.
When they decide to eat, we are collecting great numbers of redfish, and the trout are coming around, but are scattered and moving.  Sitting with cut mullet, live perch, and live shrimp in the potholes has been the best for bait, and drifting with gold spoons, Down South Lures, and Gambler plastics seems to be the best for artificials.  Drum can be good when you spot a school in the flats.  Trout are also being caught while drifting the flats.  Keep grinding and eventually you will pick up enough to stretch your line.  The fishing should get better as the weather straighten out into warmer weather.  Give me a call and and I guarantee you I will give it my all to put you on fish!  Be safe out there my friends.

4-16-2014: Winter just will not give in but lots of redfish have shown up patrolling the flats even with the cooler water temperatures. I have found most redfish or holding in shallow water less then 2 foot. Weather they eat is another story had some awesome days with easy limits and a few tough days this week after the last cold front. Trout have been showing up also so mixed boxes has been common this week.  Schooling trout have been showing up on outside of Ransom inland and also along Lydia ann channel. Soft plastics or live shrimp has been my choice to get these trout in the boat. Most have been keepers but not seeing as many schools as we usually see this time of year. I'm sure it will turn on big time in the next week or two.  We have mostly been targeting Redfish starting off they have been in just about every flat holding over shallow grass. I would work the flat hard. Cut mullet, finger mullet, Menhaden and sea lice has been what they're eating. I have been free lining my baits so they stay out of the grass.
Check out some of my photos from this week. Take a child fishing make great memories for them to last a lifetime.

 FLOUNDER GIGGING AT NIGHT IS FANTASTIC! 

4-16-2014: SOUTH TEXAS WINDS...Howdy Readers!  The conditions for flounder gigging have been pretty poor lately. The wind has not let up much & that makes the water dirty - easier for the flounder to hide! That just means it makes my job that much harder, but my customers have still been eager to go. Despite the conditions, we are still getting our limits on flounder, just taking a little bit more time. I am fishing out of Aransas Bay. The flounder are 2 pounds plus and 15-18 inches long. If you find some baby shards, then yo should be able to find the flounder. That's where I have been finding most of my fish. I have seen very few sheepshead.

The Spring Flounder Run is here! I still have a few days available in April & May - CALL TO RESERVE YOUR TRIP 361-790-3271

4-16-2014:  Hi everybody. Fishing has been great. I have been targeting redfish & Black Drum and having great success. I took out 2 women on April 13th and had a blast with them. We started off fishing for redfish. They were referred to me by another client of mine. I explained to them that we were using circle hooks and that all you had to do when the redfish takes the bait is just real. The hook is designed to hook the fish in the corner of the mouth without having to set the hook . It serves many purposes. 1) I enjoy taking kids fishing and most can't set the hook but with this hook ; they just have to reel . Watching that young fishermen or fisherwomen fight that redfish is very rewarding. The other positive is that if the Redfish or Black Drum is to small ; they can be released unharmed. We caught both undersized redfish as well as keepers on their outing with me. After fishing for reds we turned our attention to hooking up on a few Black Drum before heading to the marina.
I ENJOY FISHING WITH KIDS. IT BRINGS BACK MEMORIES WHEN MY DAD TOOK ME FISHING AS A YOUNG BOY TOO...........

4-16-2014:  I guess the person who named it "fishing" and not catching was very smart. This past week it's been one day wonderful next day very few. The ones I caught were caught on cut pin perch. The reds are here one day and gone the next. I've run from one end of the flats pick one up in all different places. "Good catching to you". I still have some opening on Easter weekend if you want to give it a try.

4-16-2014: The water temperature has warmed up and the fish are digging it. Spring is in full bloom on the water!  Stringers of big reds have been coming out of the back lakes on St. Joe island. The trout bite has fired up on the outside of Rockport shore. The big hard fighting black drum have been showing up and taking the stage out in Aransas bay, around the reefs and deep Channels. Live shrimp, sea lice and cut menhaden have been the baits of choice. The sun is shining and the fish are biting here in Fulton TX.

4-16-2014:  A good week of fishing, some days are slower than others but overall a wonderful week. The tides are almost back too normal and the water temperatures are getting better. The fish i have been finding are in the shallow water in the potholes of the flats. Also been finding some nice trout running with the reds had a trip Sunday with 2 ladies and caught a nice very nice 29inch trout, in about 2 foot of water. The best bait i have found is mud minnows on a Carolina rig. Summertime is here so let me take you and your family out and lets make memories.

4-16-2014: Hello To Everyone, Wow!!! Has the wind been howling, or what? Do not let it discourage you from wetting a line though. Just ask the gentlemen in the photo
accompanying this Fishing Report. On that particular day the wind was 30 to 40mph and the bays were like chocolate milk. We basically fished the areas where the islands were helping to block the gusts. Live shrimp was not working, so I switched to cut mullet. It took a while, but my client wound up with a 30 3/4 inch Red and 3 more Reds
up to 27 7/8 inches. For someone who had never caught a spotted tail this was one heck of a memory for him. Please contact us and "lets go catch you some memories".

4-1-2014:  Redfishing was really good during spring break. Limits were fairly easy to come by except for the two days after the cold front we received on Wednesday of that week. After spring break I have not been booked every day like I was, but on the days I have been fishing its been a little harder to catch limits. We are still getting nearly all of them with having our water level come up quite a bit (that being normal levels for this time of year) in which I think scattered the fish for a little while. Once the fish "settle" to these new water levels I think I will be smashing them once again
