2-1-2017: As we finish up on duck season, the last weekend in
January, February we turn our sights to fishing. While the winter
weather has been rather calm, the reds and trout have been biting
and are good on soft plastics while wading. We are also catching
reds and drum, out of the boat while fishing on the bottom. February
can be an exciting month if you don't mind the cooler temperatures
and lower tides. So, if you're ready for a winter adventure give me
a call. Remember spring break is right around the corner and dates
are beginning to book up.

2-1-2017 Hope everyone is
having a happy new year. Well as I reported in my previous fishing
report I am building a new boat. The boats dimensions are as
follows: 24'-80 " with a custom welded hull, a 150 4-stroke Yamaha
and a 35 hp Briggs and Stratton PLUS it also has LED underwater
lights as well as LED above lights. It should have plenty of
power and lights. Current completion time April maybe May so please
be patient as these builds take a lot of man hours (not to mention
money) to create a flounder gigging machine!!! Flounder
gigging has been great now that the tides have finally dropped-out.
With low tide conditions the fish should be concentrated in cuts
draws and bends. There's still live shrimp around at the bait stands
and fishing reel slow on the bottom works well try the back of
harbors free line shrimp or put a split-shot on and reel
slow...you'll feel a hit and set the hook!!! Move around
and you can find them where there's moving water. Warmer
temperature water is what you look for. The flounder are
showing up in the 15-17' range I'm sure their are bigger ones!!
They might be down deeper or I haven't seen them yet low numbers of
sheepshead and drum that should change in the coming weeks. Thanks
for looking in and I'll start posting pictures of the new boat as
soon as I can.

Happy February everyone. Spring is almost here. We are experiencing
winter tides now and it is an excellent time for fishing. The edges
of the channels are clearly defined so the drop offs where the fish
hang out are easy to find. Fishing these drop offs will pay off.
Cast your live shrimp, mullet, cut crab or your favorite lure and
you are sure to come up with nice Redfish, Trout, and Drum. If you
start early while it is still cold fish the deep side of the drop
off and work way up to shallower water as the day warms up.
Wade fishing the flats on warm days casting lures can be very
productive. With all you fishing this time of year remember to be
patient and fish slowly. Once you find some fish stay with them.
Moving around can be counterproductive. Join Captain Lori or myself,
Captain Kevin for some "adventure"!!!

2-1-2017: Normally this time of
year I'm doing more duck hunting than fishing because of the cold,
but this year has been crazy warm for the most part and the fishing
has been good because of the water still being fairly warm. Not real
cold at least. For the last few months its been more like fall
conditions rather than dead of winter! I've been able to catch
limits of redfish fairly easy most days. Ive also been seeing good
numbers of trout coming to the dock as well which usually doesn't
happen too much for January. Come February, and the end of duck
season, my fishing comes to an abrupt halt because i will be leaving
to run my hog and javelina hunts until mid march. If any of you are
interested in this kind of hunt let me know, I'm sure i can work you
in on some dates. I offer unlimited hogs, 1 to 2 javelinas, and all
the varmints you care to shoot. No hidden fees!
And you can hunt at night! I will be returning home to fish
Spring Break for those of you wanting to fish that week of March.
next time remember when the cards are down and the bet is called,
you still have your ...

GIGGING AT NIGHT IS FANTASTIC! CALL 361-790-3271
Howdy Folks! The flounder gigging around the Port Aransas & Rockport
area has started off on a strong foot for 2017. The flounder during
this time of year are smaller fish, around 15 - 16 inches. The
perfect size for stuffing or grilling. The gigging has been
"fast-action" right at dark, then tapering off as the night goes on
and the water cools down. I have been moving around a bunch in the
area - leaving from different docks, depending on the weather.
During north winds, I have been fishing over in the Rockport area
with lots of flounder holding on soft, mud bottom in about a foot of
water. I have also been gigging around the Port Aransas area with
the low water that we had during the beginning of the week. It lead
to some easy picking on the flounder, with most of my fish hanging
around shallow flats adjacent to deep water. There are very few
black drum or sheepshead right now. I still have plenty of
available dates during February. If you are coming down to our area
- Rockport, Port Aransas, Corpus Christi, please give me a call
361-790-3271 and "Let's go have a good time!"

2-1-2017: Cooler weather is
still here, tides are finally lower and the redfish are in the
flats. We've been targeting the deeper guts along the flats in
Aransas area throwing cut mullet and having fairly good days. For
trout were using shrimp under popping corks on the edges of the same
flats and getting a lot of smallies with the keepers in the lower
slot sizes. Last week we went down and waded King Ranch shoreline.
Started off using Gamblers in the key lime flavor and after having
only limited success, we switched up and went to Corkies. Those of
us using pumpkin with chartreuse had the most successful and getting
them in the Upper slot. Nueces Bay is still my favorite place to
wade this time of year and with the lower tides it'll be game on.
I'll still be using a variety of soft plastics, mostly those with a
splash of white or chartreuse. We'll see how it rolls for us in the
morning. Get out and hit the reefs.

Hello South Texas! There are plenty of fish out there! we have
been getting limits of small to medium sized fish every time
the weather allows us to venture out. Sheepshead are beginning
to show and there will be plenty of large ones, that's because
it's coming on mating season, this one of the best times of
year to get flounder, drum and sheepshead. Lot's of Redfish
and drum are being caught, around the channels and in certain
(holes) up on the flats, give me a ring and let's go get some,
I remind you all that we have several novice flounder guides
on the goggle pages now, and I know they are using face book
,etc. to lure people in, they are only learning themselves, so
choose a guide ,older and wiser for your fishing trip. If it
seems too good to be true it probably is....
Come find out for yourself, why flounder gigging is so awesome
and if you're thinking about catching some Redfish, Speckled
Trout or Black Drum....I'm happy to help you catch these fish
too and well be using fresh dead shrimp to get the bites! I

Hello To Everyone, As I have been saying for a long time the Duck
Season should be phenomenal this year and believe me it is. I was
out with a friend checking and setting decoys a few days before the
"second half of the split season" started. I literally stopped my
AirBoat and watched the Ducks flying because of how amazed I was of
how many thousands of Ducks there were. I don't remember seeing that
many Ducks in 15-20 years. Needless to say my 4 guys limited out
quickly on Red Heads and then we went fishing for the rest of the
day. On that day, the "Cast and Blast" day, they had 8 Red Heads
ducks, 1 Merganser duck, 3 Reds Fish, and 20 Trout-18-22 inches. The
day before, Friday 12/09/2017, it was not Duck Hunting
Season...YET!!! But we did catch a lot of good thick fish: 15
Trout-18 to 22 inches, and 2 big Red Fish. One of the Red Fish was
27 3/4 inches and the other Red Fish was 32 1/2. Please contact me
by the link that is on the Fishing Report, or text me, and "lets go
catch and bag you some memories". Priceless!
