8-1-2015: Trout still holding out really good. Catching limits or near limits everyday. Fishing with croaky and piggies over submerged shell and sand and grass shorelines. The winds have continued to blow around twenty which makes it a little rough, but bite is still good. The hot weather is definitely here to stay but has not affected the fishing. Catching a few reds wade fishing with croaker and soft plastic.  Starting to see the red fish keeper numbers picking up. Still catching black drum with live or dead shrimp and popping cork. So call or email if you want to book a trip in August or September. I still have few days open. Bring the family for some bay fishing!!!

Gigging more sheepshead in the 4-8# range.  There's still a lot of under-sized sheepshead -  the bigger ones are starting to show up now in good numbers. The drum are there one night and gone the next their size is 16-18" - not big ones but real good eating size. Seeing reds on the points and drop offs and in good number too! Trout are being caught on croaker in good numbers around islands and drop offs and a lot of small drum in the 16-21"  - hitting free-lined shrimp and rattling corks!

8-1-2015: Fishing has been great this summer. We have been catching a lot of trout and flounder all along the ICW focusing on the cut outs. Most of the trout have come from the drop off on live shrimp and popping corks. For the flounder I use either gulp swimming mullet or a curly tail grub with shrimp pro cure with a 1/4 oz jig head bouncing off the bottom. The reds are becoming more active in the flats.

8-1-2015 Well summertime heat is definitely here! I've been early on the water and early off due to the hot bite I've been having here the last week. I primarily fish for redfish and I've had limits before it gets real hot temperature wise out on the water. I've been on large schools of some really solid fish too. Some days I've actually had trouble catching fish under the slot limit if you can believe that. Look for the redfish action to stay hot for August. I still have available dates if you would like to get in on some of these brutes!
I still have some dates open if you would like to book a trip - Give me call and we'll go stretch some lines!

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

8-1-2015  Strong Winds, Slightly Low Tide... the slow incoming tide at night has been pushing muddy water in, and up onto the banks. The deeper guts the past couple of weeks, have made it a little bit tougher to find some decent gigging water. Although, I am still working hard and finding limits of flounder for my customers.  The gigging action will continue to get better and better as the night progresses on with the water temperature continuing to warm. A four person group, twenty fish limit is taking us about 4 hours to gig. Most of the flounder are ranging in size from 16 to 19 inches, and 2 to 3 pounds over hard sand and short grass. We have also been managing to find a few drum and sheepshead as well.  August/September dates AVAILABLE!

8-1-2015: Black Drum:  Since the falling of the high tides the black drum fishing has been great on dead shrimp near drop offs and grass lines near reefs free lined or on 1/8 oz. jig heads.  Speckled Trout:  Trout fishing has been really good as well on live Croaker and Piggy Perch either free lined or under shakers about 1-2í, fishing 4-6í of water with grass beds look for sweet smelling slicks that pop and fish close to them. Donít be afraid to get out of the boat and wade those trout also. Wading can be very productive and donít forget to work those live baits in the potholes.  Redfish: Redfishing 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.
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.

8-1-2015: Finally the redfish are starting to show up in the flats. We have been targeting the potholes in the dirty water with piggies and working them slower than normal. Use a variety of bait to find what they are eating. Cracked crab, cut mullet and finger mullet are some examples. For trout we have been switching back and forth from croaker to piggies. Still target the edges of the drop-offs and the deeper water. San Jose and outside of Traylor is still producing trout in the early hours of the day.
Drum have been under a lot of pressure the last few weeks so it's hit and miss. When you find them, free-line dead shrimp in front of them. Most of the drum have been up tight to the shorelines and can be seen if you look hard enough.

6-16-2015:  Hello Everybody,  Trout fishing is "spec"tacular with boat limits occurring daily. Croaker is the bait of choice and the occasional big fish is being boated as well. The weather has been super. reds are in the flats but are a bit more challenging. One day they are there and we do well and the next day poof they are gone. Overall things are well as you would expect and boat traffic is still light except for Fridays and Saturdays. Most guides still have a few open days so give one a call and come to the Coast. I think that you will be glad you did!
