11-26-2014: Hello To Everyone,  It is a little hard to believe it's almost ThanksGiving, but it is here!!! This Report is really pretty simple. We have been Fishing and we have been Duck Hunting. Fishing is good when the weather breaks and the wind it is not howling. Duck Hunting is good when it's not foggy. There's not much of a middle ground. As far as fishing use popping corks and shrimp. As far as Duck Hunting hopefully its cold, not foggy, and you're in the right Blind. Please watch the weather and plan your trips accordingly. One thing is for sure you're more than likely not going to catch a fish sitting in the recliner and you're not going to bag a duck watching TV...even though I have seen some elaborate Duck Blinds. Again, please contact us for available dates...Fishing, Duck Hunting, or Cast and Blast. "Lets go catch and bag you some memories"!
Contact me if you're interested in wading for Reds and Blacks.

On another note "Prime Red Fishing Time" is just around the corner, so why not book a trip or two, now!

Please contact me and lets go "catch you some memories".
You can also contact me via our website...www.tigernetfishguideservice.com, or by e-mail... tigernet@cableone.net,

I promise I'll give you 120%  of Pure Fishing Excitement so...

Let's Go Fishing!!!

PORT ARANSAS OFFSHORE & BAY FISHING REPORT: 11-26- 2014

Offshore fishing charters have slowed down. The boats that have been able to go fishing have come in with Atlantic Sharpnose Shark, Spanish Mackerel, Mangrove Snapper and some have released Blacktip Sharks and one lucky angler had a nice Mako Shark on but the Shark won. Bay fishermen have been coming in with Redfish, Black Drum, a few Speckled Trout and Gaff Top.
Live bait is plentiful at South bay marina shrimp, croaker, finger Mullet , and piggies .
We are still booking offshore and bay trips. So watch the weather,  pick your fishing day and give us a call 361-758-6900.

Meet Capt. Kevin McCoy

11-26-2014: Hello Everybody!

Catching is still great. Reds are in the flats eating piggy and pin perch. the fish are in the upper end of the slot with some oversize mixed in. trout are still hitting live croaker and soft plastics are working well too. The frontal systems have begun and the water is cooling down. The next two weeks should be good to go and Thanksgiving weekend should see busier than normal boat traffic. I don't think I would want to be a fish!!!!!!!!!!

INTERESTED IN HUNTING?

 

11-26-2014

There has definitely been less fishing pressure around here the last few weeks and the fishing has been great for me and my clients. This past weekend I was able to make one anchor each day, after my duck hunt, to limit my clients out on their fish. Just don't get much better than that. Other days fishing have also been good but I've had to work a little harder for limits.
It's been a little warm here lately and the duck hunting has been a little slow, but we've still managed to shoot some birds. With this little arctic blast we had in here last week though, the birds have shown up and things are looking really good with the ducks really starting to show up now!!
I still have some dates yet to book for the thanksgiving holidays (November) if you would like to get in on some great fishing and or some duck hunting.

11-26-14:  Hey Folks, sorry its been a while, We are starting to see the cool fronts and the fall fishing is in full swing as we have been picking up decent numbers of Black drum schooling up along shorelines and still finding some Redfish and an occasional Flounder on the flats near deeper water guts on cut and live mullet. We have been getting the drum on Shrimp, the perch have started and I said stress started to leave us alone as in some previous trips the perch would suck the shrimp off the hook almost immediately so this is a big PLUS in Fall/Winter fishing. Keep in mind Redfish tend to stay up on the flats year round I still have a few days left in November and quite a few days left in December open. Donít shy away from the cold temps during these fall and winter Months, remember fish have to eat too. We can accommodate from the best of anglers to the most novice. We have been fishing from Rockport to Ingleside If you havenít tried sight fishing this might be a great time to learn, please make sure to bring the sunshine with you.

11-26-2014 - Hey There South Texas Giggers and Anglers!!!
Nothing new to report, I haven't wet a hook or a gig since the 30th of last month, of course I would , but my phones been pretty dead this month. Hopefully that will change this last week of November, still have some good dates available. One thing I've heard from some other guides is that the flounder are thick at the shrimp boat, Lydia Ann and ship channel at port a and their hitting anything you throw at them, as long as the tide is moving one direction or the other. With incoming tide being the most productive , best bait, finger mullet or mud minnows, take your pick. Gigging season opens in one week , I have the boat tore down right now , rebuilding the alternator , replacing the belt , building new gig heads, then its time to rock n roll on the first.

MAKE YOUR RESERVATION NOW!  PLENTY OF GOOD DATES STILL AVAILABLE THRU DECEMBER!

May your fishing always be catching,

 FLOUNDER GIGGING AT NIGHT IS FANTASTIC! 

11-26-2014: Well, Texas Giggers it's time to get back in the saddle.  I have enjoyed being able to take some time off and spend it with the family. I also splurged and re-powered my boat with a brand new Mercury 115 Pro XS 2015.  I've been hearing lots of good reports on the flounder this month. Everyone I have spoken with has talked about all the flounder they have been catching on rod and reel. The warming temperature has slowed down the flounder dramatically on their migration to the Gulf, which is a good thing for the giggers.  Remember, the first two weeks you will only be allowed two flounder by gig. I still have confidence that we will be gigging flounder all the way through the end of January. I will be booking double trips for December/January, for those that would like to go late. I can also do last-minute trips as well. Just give Capt. Dave a call 361-790-3271.  I'm ready to gig some big flounder!
May you all enjoy family & feasts in the upcoming weeks, and have a Happy Holiday Season!
