WITH SPRING TIDES COMES GIGGING ACTION!

 

Hello there!  My name is Captain David Dupnik, I am a Fishing Guide in the Aransas Pass area. I provide flounder gigging charters, year-round except the month of November for the closure. I am so appreciative to be able to do what I truly love and support my family at the same time. I give it my 110 percent every night I am out on the water with a charter group.

I stand behind my business name, SURRENDER AT SUNRISE, (if we have to)!

Flounder Gigging is an amazing nighttime experience. There is really nothing else that compares to being out on the water at night and getting to view all the marine life that you just don't get to see during the day. We leave at dusk, head out aboard a 20' Custom Flats boat, equipped with a 2015 Mercury Pro XS 115 hp, 24 hp Honda air motor, and outrigged with 15 underwater lights and 7 upper lights. The flounder limit is five per person and must be fourteen inches long. I also hold a Commercial Finfish license, I am able to go out when I do not have a charter and gig a commercial limit of thirty flounder.

 

 


The water temperature in the mid-70s and the very high tides during the past couple of weeks has made for some awesome fast-action flounder gigging. With the big tidal surge we have had, it has pushed the schools of flounder into the bays and flats. I believe the Spring Run has kicked off! We have gigged our limits of flatties almost nightly. A few of the flounder I have cleaned have had some big squid in their bellies, which tells me that these flounder were fresh from the Gulf.

I have been finding all of my flounder holding tight up against the shorelines with the hard incoming tide at night. Most of the gigging has been fish on hard sand and dead seagrass. "Those fish sure can hide good when laying on dead grass." The flounder are starting to get bigger as well, averaging 1.75 to 2.5 pounds, and 15-17 inches range.
 


This past week it has taken about 2-3 hours to gig a twenty fish limit. We are seeing very few drum and sheepshead. You couldn't ask for better weather conditions than what we have right now, light winds and high tides - perfect flounder gigging conditions! The calm, light winds won't last forever, but don't worry the wind won't stop this CAPTAIN FROM GOING.
