GIGGING AT NIGHT IS FANTASTIC!
Fellow Giggers! This summer has been fantastic. The flounder
gigging is still going strong, very productive with the full moon
and low tides. We have been gigging our limit of flounder by
midnight, some nights earlier. I had Brandon & his wife from Padre
Island, on the boat last night. They asked me to come down & gig on
the Upper Laguna Madre. I went down there knowing it would be a
perfect night with light SW winds and a falling tide. We gigged
their limit of 10 flounder in about an hour, we even passed a few
smaller ones for a chance at some nicer size fish. Most averaging 3
pounds each. Drum are out and we have been gigging 5 to 10 drum a
night, with a few sheepshead. After I dropped Brandon & his wife
off, I decided to go back out commercially. I headed south from the
JFK bridge and took Lower Laguna Madre - about a 45 minute boat
ride. Water clarity was absolutely horrible, I couldn't see deeper
than 18" of water with brown tide everywhere. It took me til 6:00am
to find my 30 fish limit. I had 8 flounder weighing over 7 pounds -
I still have a few dates available
for the end of August & September - Give me a call to - Reserve -
The SUMMER FLOUNDER GIGGING is fantastic - Don't miss out!!
Weekends fill up FAST!

Hello To Everyone, Fish "catching" has been an on again off again
experience to explain it gently. The August Article I wrote seems to
be right on target. You're not going to load a box every time you go
out. I know I try as hard as anyone to put the clients on the fish,
but sometimes the fish do not get the memo to eat. For instance,
when my Family and I went in the airboat we saw hundreds of Reds and
Black Drum. They simply would not hit our bait. Strange as it may
seem that's just the nature
of the beast, on again off again. Use shrimp for the Black Drum,
Croakers and Piggies for Trout/Reds. I'm seeing more and more clues
by the way the fish are acting that the "Prime Time Red Fishing
Time" is just around the corner. Please book a trip, or two with us
and "lets go catch you some memories". Also, please read my August
Article and check out the photos. I believe it will hit home for

As the summer comes to a
close and the kiddos are getting ready to head back to school ,
donít give up on the fishing as it seems to be getting better. Well
folks, the Redfishing seems to be on the up rise. We have been
catching some tournament size Redfish. We have been targeting the
redfish shallow with topwater lures and bait early in the morning,
and once the sun comes up we have still been sightcasting to schools
of black drum and redfish on the flats.
I also specialize in Sight Casting or Sight Fishing for Redfish it
is an art that only one can appreciate when being successfully
taught. Once you catch your first "sightcasted" fish you will really
appreciate the thrill of feeding the fish and watching the eat. Iím
going to be honest with you in all aspects. My number one must in
sight fishing/casting is to buy the best pair of polarized
sunglasses you budget will allow. My personal preference is my Costa
Del Mar 580 glass lenses in amber with the green mirror. (hammerhead
model) Be sure you choose a frame that lets the minimal amount of
outside light in as possible meaning buy the right frame to fit your
face. Not all people will have the same comforts in frame.
Some of the other things that are very important in sight fishing is
being able to tell which way the fish is facing you want your lure
to pass in front of him/her vs. behind. Being able to cast small
lures accurately to fish will greatly improve your success rate for
catching fish by sight. Itís not always about filling the box with
fish! Sometimes feeding/catching one Redfish by sight casting or on
a topwater lure where you can see the explosion when it hit can be a
trip maker especially if it is your first time fishing without bait.
When you are constantly casting lures for the most part of the day
it will also make you a better caster and get more familiar with the
rod/reel. Patience is the key to catching fish on lures. Please
select your fishing guide and stick to the guide you like and he/she
will learn your strengths as well as weaknesses to better fit your
fishing style. We as fishing guides all want to see the kids catch
fish so they become addicted to fishing as they grow as opposed to
out running around on the streets. We work first hand with the kids
to make sure they have fun and make memories after all we are here
to learn and to have a good time. I will touch more on sight fishing
in the near future. Please keep me in mind when booking your next
fishing trip. I can be reached at 361-726-5255 or through my website

Meet Capt. Kevin McCoy
Has the weather the last few days shaped up very nicely. We have had
very light winds and the water is finally cleaning up. Trout are
still here and still eating piggy perch and croaker. Boat limits or
near boat limits are the norm if the weather cooperates. If it is
windy 20 trout are common. there is only a few weeks left of the 10
fish limit on trout. Don't miss out. Reds are in the flats eating
piggy perch and pin perch. I have not red fished in a while, but I
am being told the afternoon is the time to be red fishing. the next
two weeks should be awesome-if the weather continues to hold! Once
school starts there will certainly be less traffic on the water
making for some very pleasant and peaceful days.

INTERESTED IN HUNTING?
I've been extremely busy for the last
couple if months and I've been slacking on my fishing reports. I'm
sorry for that for those of you that look forward to reading updated
fishing reports. My clients were limiting on their reds, but a few
weeks ago the water level really dropped and we were smoking the
reds and black drum most days. Then the water started coming back in
somewhat and kinda scattered the fish i was on. With last week's
super moon, and adding to the equation of rising water and slick
calm winds, i had a really rough week fishing. It was more fishing
rather than catching. Now that we're on the waning side of the moon
my fishing, or lets say catching, has once again been good since
last Sunday. School starts back here before long so i know most of
you are done with the coast thing for now, but for those of you that
are not, I still have plenty of open dates to fill in September and
October. I am really looking forward to fall fishing and some cooler

8-15- 2014 - Hey There Flounder Gigging and Bay Fishing Enthusiasts!
We are still looking at good numbers of
flounder out there, however I've noticed their not eating as much,
kinda like when we get hot were not hungry, they are also burying
themselves in the mud a lot now because the water is 88 degrees like
Its been brought to my attention the bite for reds is very short in
the mornings again try the late evening instead I'm sure you will
have much more success were still having way low tides in the
evening and dirty water, but those of us doing this regularly have
learned to adapt. May your fishing always be catching Stay safe everyone and
