9-1-2015:  Coming into September, still catching good numbers of fish. The trout bite is early, still on piggies and croacker over submerged reefs and sand grass pockets. Still catching good numbers of black drum as well, on dead or live shrimp under a cork. Redfish are fair, starting to get more keepers on croacker, piggies, and dead bait. With the summer coming to an end, and kids going back to school, this has made mid-week fishing exceptionally great with less boats on the water. I still have some days available in September and October and don't forget duck season is right around the corner. So, time to start planning a cast and blast. I look forward to hearing from you soon.

9-1-2015: Fishing report for end of August 2015. Floundering in August meant going shallow and I mean shallow with a lot of fish in 3" of water and on shell. Tides can fluctuate from high to low water conditions change often along with the winds can make finding clear water, difficult. Still getting limits every night 15"to 20" average with 2-3 sheepshead a night. October is fast approaching my weekends are starting to book up . Don't miss out on some of the best flounder gigging of the year along with sheepshead and drum migrating for winter can be incredible. November is no gigging for flounder but you can gig sheepshead and drum limit 5 per person and 2 flounder per person on rod and reel in November. December regulations are the 1st thru the 14th - 2 flounder gigged per person and 5 per person sheepshead and drum. After the 14th,  December regulations are 5 flounder, 5 sheepshead, and 5 drum per person!

9-1-2015: Fishing has been absolutely amazing the past couple of weeks. We have been catching some really nice trout around the boat hole and in night hawk bay. We have also been sight casting redfish early in the morning then catching limits of flounder on rod and reel as the tide starts going out. The weather has gotten much cooler in the past couple of weeks making the fishing even better all day long.

9-1-2015  Well summer is over and kids are back in school now. Over the last couple of weeks it's been fairly tough for me to catch reds ( in which I primarily fish for ) on a daily basis because of the calm wind conditions and very clear water. Most days I've been able to catch near limits, but it has not been very easy. Enough stress to drive a guide plumb crazy! 6-10 slot reds and maybe a couple black drum is all I've managed to bring to the docks. Frustrating for sure when I can see them and not get bit. With September rolling around things should pick up for me once again with being able to get some fronts in here and more wind. The black drum are starting to show really good in the area I fish and it will be ON with both species before long. I'm tired of August, and glad the month is gone!
I still have some dates open if you would like to book a trip - Give me call and we'll go stretch some lines!

Until next time remember when the cards are down and the bet is called, you still have your ...

 FLOUNDER GIGGING AT NIGHT IS FANTASTIC!  CALL 361-790-3271

9-1-2015: Light winds - Lots of fish!!  Summer 2015 has come to an end and we have been hard at it all summer long. The majority of my customers were able to limit out every night, and only two nights out of the five months where we weren't able to gig our limit.  The shallow flats have been dead the past three weeks, which means I am making a thirty minute boat ride to where the fish are at. I have been gigging the flounder over hard sand and around grass beds. Where there is bait, there is flounder.  The size of the flounder are averaging around 2 to 3 pounds. It looks like we should have some nice flounder this winter.  I'd like to say a BIG THANK YOU to everyone I had the pleasure of taking out this summer, lots of memories made.

Limits of Sheepshead and Black Drum are included.  There is a $100 deposit  required in order to reserve your date - please mail your check to Capt. Dan.  Location for the trip and time will be determined by Capt. Dan - the closer we get to December!  Looking forward to having you aboard!!

9-1-2015:  Hello South Texas, Fall is around the corner and I'm starting to see all the signs, I believe we will have a banner fall this time. Summer gigging is limits every time I go out, lots of 15 to 18 inch fish right now with a few 20 plus fish around, last night on the full moon they were hiding good, but we had our limit plus some nice Sheepshead by 10;30 my customers have been happy all summer long.  It looks like the water is so high at night that the sheepshead are coming up on the flats, look for them around oysters and any kind of structure, they like hiding under duck blinds too ,most of the fishing going on is just south of Port Aransas, and all the way to the old fish pass, good redfish catches are being reported in Shamrock lakes early morning. Other fishing news is that the black drum and flounder are being caught on the cuts and outside shore of St. Joe , directly across from Rockport, big schools have been spotted from Paul's Mott to Long Reef, fishing is great as well as Gigging. My best to all, ready for a cool down!
May your Fishing Always Be Catching,

9-1-2015: Hello To Everyone!  Labor Day is almost upon us, the fishing is good to excellent, and catching will continue to get better. We recently had a Cystic Fibrosis Tournament here in Rockport and I am happy to report we placed 5th out of 70 boats. The old saying is "the one that got away"...well it is true here. We lost two big fish by breaking the lines and I'm sure those two monsters would have placed us close to the front. The two clients/friends had a great time, so did I, and the tournament received a bunch of donations to help in the fight for a cure. We were using Piggy Perch in the pot holes for the Reds and Piggy Perch for the Trout in 5' to 7' water. On another note I have written several Articles for www.fishrockport.com  which were titled "The Prime Time Red Fishing Time" and that time of the year is just around the corner, also. Another event to remember which is fairly soon, shortly after Labor Day, is the Duck Hunting Season. A lot to remember, but what fun and anticipation for the approaching Fall. Please book your trips now for a Guided Hunt, an Un-Guided Hunt, or the infamous "Cast and Blast Hunt". Whatever you decide contact us and "lets go catch you some memories"!  If you would like for me to take you to some of the "line peeler areas" then please contact me and "lets go catch you some memories"  Call: 432-349-0353

9-1-2015:  Trout fishing has been excellent with boat limits happening every day. Croaker and piggy perch are still the baits of choice. Trout are running up to 27 inches. The last two weeks or so has seen super calm wind making a day on the water very nice. Reds are being caught as well while trout fishing, but boat limits are not happening for me. Reds are in the flats in Aransas and boat limits are common for the guides that are red fishing. Piggy perch and pin perch are the baits of choice there. The next two months should see a gradually cooling of air and water temp making days on the water very nice and productive. I will continue to rout fish as long as it is consistent and productive. Enjoy a day on the water; you will be glad that you did!

Wading can be very productive and donít forget to work those live baits in the potholes. Live bait on the beach has been good too.  Redfish: Red fishing has picked up and are on the flats near good tidal flow areas look for reds in 1-3í of water and make sure to place your baits in the potholes. Top water lures an also be deadly early in the morning. Use live finger mullet or cut mullet fish the potholes of your favorite flat.
Remember it is getting hot out there donít forget to stay hydrated drink plenty of water and be aware of the signs of heat stress-related issues.
