9-1-2016:  Hello Everybody, September should be outstanding. Trout are plentiful everywhere and they are eating croaker and piggy perch. They should continue through August hopefully on into September. Red fish are a little different story for most, but not all. they are eating piggy perch, pin perch, mullet and just about anything else you put in front of them. The reds will only get better as the water heats and there will be scattered fish kind of grouped together making limits very possible. Basically fishing is excellent and should continue in this manner through October. Do yourself a favor, come down to the Texas Coastal Bend - enjoy some of the finest fishing anywhere!!!

9-1-2016: Hello South Texas!  Fishing has improved over the last few weeks. Limits of flounder are back and the fish are getting nice and fat! Recently I had a trip with 2 young men from Dallas, and we limited on flounder in less than one hour! Big change from 2 weeks before when I went over the same shoreline and got one fish. What's happening is the rain and recent weather has cooled the water off up shallow, so the bait returned and so did the flounder, come get some! Red fishing is also improving, but with most catches in the early morning or the late evening, this is A typical of late summer behavior and best bait is live finger mullet or pin perch, peel the top fin off your perch, the little bit of blood from that will attract the redfish and they will swallow it whole. Use a Carolina rig with a slip weight and target the sand holes. Copano bay is still trashed and there is no clear water, however it seems to be where the black drum are hanging out and there is still trout on the wells out there, use live shrimp under a cork, when available.

9-1-2-2016: It is pretty simple...it is HOT as in WEATHER and the fish are deep! The Trout are hitting on Piggies and usually "the bite" is over around 9:30am to 10am. When that time of the morning rings the bell so to speak the Trout shut off light like a light switch. We then go Red Fishing with the same Piggies and fish them in the potholes. I have also found cut mullet works great too and the fresher the bait the better. If you have live mullet try cutting them up and casting them. Like I stated "its pretty simple" fish early morning because the catching is a little easier and its cooler. Please contact us and "lets go catch you some memories".

9-1-2016 As we transition into the month of September, the fishing should continue to be great. Moving into cooler temperatures, the numbers of red fish should go up. Right now we are still catching limits or near limits of trout on piggies and croacker. Currently catching scattered keeper redfish but they are harder to find. The best results lately have been wade fishing for reds. So, if you are looking to bring the family down or a group to fish for fun, give a call. Fishing is always better during the week and still have a few days open in September. Looking forward to hearing from you.

9-1-2016: Floundering has been fantastic with many limits and real good numbers of Sheepshead and drum. The size of the flounder are 15-20" the Sheepshead are 6-8 pounds the drum are scattered every once in a while we get 5 most of the time one or two a trip. Been seeing good numbers of reds sometimes on the flats, other times on the drop offs in deeper water. The trout are plentiful with good numbers being caught on Crocker and shrimp try the small oil rigs and large ones in the bays. The cold fronts should be rolling in and bay water temperatures will be dropping that means bigger flounder drum and Sheepshead as well as better numbers. October is a really good time to flounder! Weekends are booking up fast so book now!

9-1-2016:   Well another summer has come and gone. I can't believe as i write this report that this coming weekend will be Labor Day! With school starting back there will be a lot less people on the water for sure, and the daytime temps should start to being a little cooler. September also usually brings some rain and better tide flow here on the coast which all equates to better fishing, or as I like to say, better catching! I will still be hammering the redfish, but I also have a good chance at finding and staying on some black drum hanging around the waters I typically fish.
I still have some dates open this month, so if you would like to book a trip - give me call and we'll go stretch some lines!

9-1-2016:  It's hot out but that hasn't slowed fishing down any. We've been fishing in the Upper Laguna the last few weeks and getting our trout fairly early in the day. Throwing piggies has worked best while doubling up with the smaller ones. Working the grass lines has proven to get the best results. Take plenty of bait as there are smaller trout in the mix. We've been getting mixed boxes of trout with a few reds and a flounder or two as well. The surf has been producing good limits of trout as well on days that we can get out there. Using croaker has given us the best bite. Start on the 3rd gut and work your way in. Getting a few reds and a shark or two is fairly normal.

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

9-1-2016: Hot water temperatures have made for some very tough flounder gigging. August has been one of my worst months to gig - due to the fact of the hot water temperature and normal tide levels. I have been making a lot of moves to every night, early in the night, in hopes to find limits of flounder. Lately, I have had to hit ten to fifteen different spots on certain nights. We have only had two or four fish in the boat by 11pm. I believe that the fish always come up later in the night to feed once the water cools off some, but especially when our water temperatures are staying in the 80s. I wish I could leave the dock around 11pm every night this month. For example, the other night I had a gigging trip of five people - we only had four flounder in the boat by 11:30pm. We gigged the other twenty-one fish by 12:45am. It has been taking around five hours to gig a twenty fish limit. There are still some sheepshead around to gig and very few drum. Book your trip NOW! Open dates available during late August or September.

9-1-2016: Hello to all. September brings a little cooler weather. A lot of you will be pulling out the old shot gun and bows for hunting season. But don't put those rods and reels away yet. The trout bite remains red hot. The trout continue to be good on piggy perch and croakers free lined in 4 to 5 feet of water with limits coming in steady. I haven't been throwing any artificial bait as of late. But on a clam morning you may want to give a topwater a try. This slight cool down will also bring a strong Redfish bite. Higher tides will be coming in this month and a lot of Redfish. I'll be throwing piggy perch, pin perch and mullet. Fish water 1-3 feet in the pod holes and around reefs.September will also bring less boat traffic. Don't forget this is a great month to go fishing. Hoping to see you soon.

8-1-2016: Fishing has been great in Corpus Christi all the way from the Laguna Madre to Baffin Bay. Recently my professionally guided fishing trips have been catching a lot of trout, black drum, and redfish. Early in the morning we have been catching limits of trout with redfish mixed in on free lined Croaker or shrimp on a popping cork as well as lures. In the later part of the morning we have been catching limits of black drum with redfish mixed in on live and dead shrimp. If you're thinking about going on a guided fishing tour in the Corpus Christi or Port Aransas area, now is a great time to book your fishing charter.
