We are finally getting some much needed rain!! Thank you Lord!
Limits of reds have been the norm for me last few days on the water thanks to the water levels droping back to normal since the storms in the gulf. Black drum have been tough due to still being in little schools instead of the 50-100 fish schools. Once the water cools off some more they shud bunch back up somewhat making them easier to catch
The south zone dove season opens Sept 20. I srill have plenty of room for those of you that would like to get in on some south Texas doves. Give me a holler and we will get you lined up!

10-2-2014 - Hey There South Texas Giggers and Anglers!!!
Not a lot to talk about, September is that transition period for better things to come! We have only been out a handful of times with high winds, water and a lot of rain. But the high water pushed the flounder and LARGE sheepshead to the back of my favorite shoreline and we knocked them dead! with 19 flounder ,9 sheepshead, and 5 drum and a lot of these in the 20" plus range.  Needless to say my party of 4 was extremely pleased and everyone will be with the cooler temps of October. So lets go get some! 

Still have some good dates available and remember November is closed so now's the time to go!

THIS IS THE BEST TIME TO GO, so get ready and come get some.
 
May your fishing always be catching

 FLOUNDER GIGGING AT NIGHT IS FANTASTIC! 

10-2-2014: High Tides and Rain...Well, the gigging has remained fair overall with conditions of high tides and much needed rain. There has been high water up on the sand banks, where they are usually dry. When the water gets high the flounder have so many places to swim and hide. I have been gigging my flounder in reeds that run along the shores. There is a myth that some people believe, that a flounder will not swim through a thick patch of reeds to get up on the bank - but, somehow the flounder are able to swim through it. If you see a little strip of clearing in the reeds, that is where the flounder are going to be. There are a few flounder I am gigging in dead seagrass, that has been blown onto the bank. With the upcoming cool front arriving at the end of this week, it should start turning things around. A few flounder should start moving out of the back bays and lakes, to get ready for their migration out to the Gulf.  For a charter group of four, it has been taking us about five hours to gig our twenty-fish limit. The flounder are averaging about two and half pounds to five pounds. We are not seeing very many sheepshead and drum out, about two to five per night.

10-2-2014: Hello To Everyone,  The last days of September proved to be interesting as far as the "Prime Time Red Fish Time". I have mentioned in previous Articles and Fishing Reports the last part of September through "ThanksGiving" is "catching" Redfish and usually your limits depending on the weather. Well, its been great fishing not phenomenal fishing until 9/29/14-Monday. Then, the pattern I am accustom to this time of year started and I mean started with absolutely silly catching every cast. Check out the pictures that accompany this report...the gentleman in black and the lady in blue...Steve and Becky. Becky wanted to make sure everyone knew she caught the biggest and her limit first. Well, I guess they'll debate that issue for a while huh? What fun and what memories that was!!! Nothing is guaranteed except death and taxes, but
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 Time Red Fishing Time" is just around the corner, so why not book a trip or two, now!
Please contact me and lets go "catch you some memories".

Hello Everybody,
Fall is in the air and I hope it stays. Red fish are in the flats and I hope they stay. Catching has been very good with boat limits common for the last seven days. the weather has been tolerable with just a few rain showers. Hopefully this will end soon. Trout are also being caught on Piggy perch and croaker. October should be fantastic red fish month as it normally only gets better and better.
