Hello South Texas! Well September came in like a lamb, but now
roaring like a lion, look at the fish these guys got on a 4
hour tour with the Flounderman, limited on flounder in just a
couple hrs. Those 20 plus in flounders are coming in from the
gulf, preparing for the annual migration from Oct. to Dec.
looks to be shaping into a good fall run. I have plenty of
week days still open but only a couple Fridays left, TIME TO
BOOK IS NOW. Redfish are up running on the weed
line now, and they are very sun burnt cast them a live mullet
or pin perch, tie your no.4 gold Mustad hook directly to your
line if you are wading throw it about 2 ft. in front of the
fish and reel back slowly toward there head, they will slam
it! Trout and drum have been good in San Antonio bay, mostly
live shrimp 18 inches under a popping cork. Catch 'em up
friends, and lets go GIGGING!
May your Fishing Always Be

Hello To Everyone! It has been HOT here, but as we all know
Fall is beginning and it is getting cooler at night. I wrote the
September 2016 Article and named it "Prime Time Red Fishing Time"
for a reason...it is!! I was fortunate to "pen" this Article because
it is fun to remember all the other Fall times...catching Red Fish.
It is pretty simple use Piggies, or live shrimp, and throw in the
pot holes. Look for schooling Reds and don't spook them. Be
respectful to other fisherman and respectful of the school they are
fishing. Please contact us and "lets go catch you some memories"

We had our first true cold front today with starting temperature
this morning at 70 . What a change. The fishing has been great and I
don't see it letting up going into October. The trout bite has still
been great and now the reds are really starting to show up in good
numbers .The bait of choice has been piggies for trout and reds. I
have been able to find fish both wading and fishing out of the boat.
I am sure I will be switching soon to Shrimp under a cork within the
next couple of weeks. The fall is always a great time to fish. When
the water temps start to fall the fish get more aggressive . Let's
book a trip and go fishing.I have some dates still open in October
and in November. I am also starting to see groups of ducks showing
up so it may be time to book that cast and blast trip!!

10-1-2016: Flounder gigging has
been very good. We're in a higher than normal tide time - it happens
every September when the cold fronts start coming in weekly or by
weekly. The bay water temperatures drop and fish start to migrate in
and out of the bays along with the bait fish. October is some of the
best flounder gigging in Texas. Flounder, Black Drum and Sheepshead
are plentiful and are fattening-up for the winter. Not every night
will be a 30-40 fish night, but there definitely will be some and
you should be there too!. I have a few Fridays and Saturdays open
this month, so CALL ME FOR AVAILABILITY!
NEWSFLASH! I'm proud to announce I'm
building a new boat with enhanced capabilities. Larger and more
stable with a bigger engine to increase power and performance. I'll
be giving updates and progress report with photos too!

The last month has been really good for me and my clients. Weíve had
some rain, the weather has cooled somewhat, and the tides have been
running a little high bringing in ďnewĒ red fish to the lakes,
backwaters, and flats. The fish have been scattered somewhat but if
I stay with it Iíve been able to catch limits nearly every day, if I
donít sit down on them the first anchor or so. With October now
here, look for cold fronts to start arriving and cooling our waters
off even more making the fishing even better, although it will
change up my patterns challenging me somewhat.
Duck season is just around the corner come November. Iíve already
seen some birds primarily redheads and pintail, but itís at least
getting me excited for the upcoming season seeing them. We can also
fish after duck hunting if you would like to book a combo. November
is a great time in which to really whack some redfish!
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!

GIGGING AT NIGHT IS FANTASTIC! CALL 361-790-3271
The flounder gigging has been extremely good these past couple of
weeks. Most nights I am headed back to the dock with flounder limits
in just a couple of hours. The higher tides and cooler water
temperatures have made for shorter boat rides to the gigging
grounds. Most of my fish have been laying on wind blown shorelines
in about 18 inches of water and about 15 feet off of the banks.
There are very few sheepshead or black drum up on the flats. After
seeing so many bigger than normal flounder gigged this summer, I
believe we will be gigging some solid fish during the fall flounder
run. October is just around the corner, and you don't want to miss
out on some fast-gigging action and maybe a trophy flounder. The
sheepshead and black drum should start showing back up too. I only
have a handful of weekdays open during October. Give me a call
TODAY, or you'll be left at the dock. Book your trip NOW!

Catching is still awesome. Reds are in the flats eating piggy perch,
mullet and pin perch. With the high water they are tight to
shorelines and limits are common with the occasional over size fish.
Trout are still eating piggy perch and croaker. The croaker are
getting big so you have to have some patience and let the fish
swallow the bait. The weather has been cooperating and a cooling
trend is occurring. The next month should see several fronts
dropping both the air and water temperatures. With everything that
is going on October will be an awesome month to spend some time on

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

Looking for a great Texas coastal fishing guide and if your idea of
adventure is fishing the beautiful, pristine saltwater bays of the
South Texas Coastal Bend area, then you've come to the right place!
Perhaps you'd prefer wade fishing or drift fishing Aransas Bay,
Redfish Bay, South Bay, Copano Bay, San Antonio Bay, Mesquite Bay
and Corpus Christi Bay. If it's more of an eco-style fishing
adventure you're after, then try out a nature and birding trip
around the Barrier Islands - Mustang Island, St. Joe's Island and
other scenic stops along the Intracoastal waterway! When wind
and weather conditions allow, fishing with us will be one of the
greatest experiences you've had on this part of the Texas coast.

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.
