 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: 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".

 You can contact me via our website...www.tigernetfishguideservice.com, by our e-mail... tigernet@cableone.net or just pick up the phone and call!

4-16-2014:  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

4-16-2014:  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.
