6-2-2016: The wind is blowing like a hurricane, the tides are higher than normal but that hasn't stopped the catching. Croaker are the right size and the trout are hungry. We have been focusing on the outside of San Jose and Traylor. Look for birds working and start out in 5 to 6 feet of water. Work in slow and you should get your trout fairly quickly.  For reds, try up closer to the shoreline and focus on the potholes where the bait is at. As it gets warmer throughout the day, move to deeper potholes out in the flats. For bait, we are using cut pin perch, cut mullet and fresh shad. We've been getting limits on both trout and reds but you have to work for em. Persistence will pay off.

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

6-2-2016: 6-2-2016: High tides & high winds!  Flounder gigging down here in the Aransas Pass/ Rockport area has been on fire this year. With limits of flounder coming in every night and lots of bigger fish up on the flats for this time of the year. With the higher tides the past few years it is really starting to take a toll on the small islands up on the flats with some of them almost completely gone by the wave action causing them to erode away. What used to be a little stream of water cutting through an island is now a 14 feet wide cut with a ton of current roaring through uprooting every thing in its path. In my 19 years of gigging down here the pattern of flounder changes every year. There are a lot newer spots holding fish up on the flats. But one thing for certain that the flounder love moving water for them to ambush there prey.
Don't get left at the dock - remember to book your summer gigging trip early!

6-2-2016: What a month May has been! Outstanding catches on trout and red fish. I am sure you know that trout are eating croaking and red fish are eating mullet, perch and shad. June promises to be a banter month. Normally the wind will stabilize making traveling the water nothing but pleasure. Fishing will be great with nice conditions. The trout will only get bigger and more plentiful. The reds will show themselves in the miles of flat in the Aransas area. June is probably my most favorite month to fish. If your schedule allows you should not miss out on the upcoming month. You will be glad you spent the time on the water!

6-2-2016: Hello South Texas!  This has been one windy month! We have been out, and the fish are large, but because of weather the numbers have been down that we are gigging. Hopefully with the arrival of June things will straighten up as we go into summer mode, I for one am looking forward to a fun summer , and everyone will get lots of fish as soon as we are past all this transitional weather, should be over soon.
Trout are getting pretty big and I'm hearing croakers around the wells are the best place to go,early in the morning when the sun comes up and then by 10;30 the bite is mostly over. There is also trout across from Rockport and some groups of drum too, shrimp live on a popping cork is best.
Redfish are showing up behind Island Moorings in Coyote cut, large numbers of keepers over there behind Port Aransas, mullet is the best bait, especially live small ones, they are just beginning to show up and will be good all summer in that area behind Port Aransas and the East Flats.
Have fun everyone and be safe....

6-2-2016: 6-2-2016: Hello To Everyone! As I have written in the previous Fishing Reports the Trout fishing has been excellent. For instance a few days ago on one particular outing, I casts 9 times, with 9 different Croakers, and caught 9 Trout that went from 18-22 inches. I released 4 and keep 5 for supper. The very next day I took 3 clients that limited out in just about 25-30 minutes and again the 18-22 inch Trout. The fish are there...where are you? Nothing is guaranteed, but death and taxes...But the Trout have been there, in great numbers, and should remain for quite some time longer.  Soooo....what are you waiting for?

6-2-2016 With May coming to an end, hopefully the rain and wind will be slowing down. Although there's been lots of rain the fishing has remained good. Catching limits of trouts on croaker and soft plastics. Fish have been in water depths of 3-4 ft., catching them in the middle, wadding, and from the boat. With good solid trout numbers, the bite has been consistent. In the higher tides, the red fish and black drum have been scattered. Hopefully the tides will recede soon and push the fish back into the bays instead of the back lakes. Hopefully with June around the corner, we will begin rolling into our summer patterns and some good fishing trips to the Bayou. So, if you are interested in a trip, adventure on the waters of the coastal bend, come on down! Still some days left to book in June and July.

6-2-2016: Much the same as last month - limits every night. After record breaking rains in the area fishing was off just a little bit. It took a little longer to get limits in a little dirtier water than I like - but we managed to get them!! The tides are settling down and the fish are out there in good numbers. Looks to be an awesome year. Hearing good numbers of large trout being caught and seeing some out at night up shallow. Reds are scattered in deeper water. Try cut mullet or shrimp.  Croaker seem to be working best for the large trout!  Don't forget rattling bobbers - they are my favorite. Picking up 3-4 keeper sheepshead a night but still seeing a lot of under sized ones. Drum are running fast  and it's hard to pick those up becuase the tides aren't quite right yet, but shouldn't be too long now til we are able to gig them too!
Well that's it for this month see you next month!!

6-2-2016: Hello to all. May has been and outstanding month for fishing. The trout bite has been very good. Trout have been in 3 to 4 feet of water around the shell and grass beds. All you need is some live croaker. Free lining these baits will get you but. People throwing artificial have been doing good. The boats that our drifting and wading have been producing suggest using an 1/8 ounce jig in darker colors. They seem to be producing better. The Redfish bite continues to be very good. Tides are high making it easier to get to them in shallow water. I've been using shad and pin perch live or dead with limits coming in steady. The same artificial baits our working. Look for these Reds in 1-2 feet of water. June will be a busy month. This is the time of year that I stress to customers if they can to fish during the week. From this point on every Saturday will host some type of tournament. Boats will be everywhere making to harder to fish multi locations. I know that a lot of people have to work. But try and slip off a day earlier or say and extra day. This will make for a better day on the water and a more enjoyable experience. If I can be of assistance in a future booking please give me a call. Hope to see you soon.

6-2-2016: 6-2-2016: TARGETING REDFISH
Redfish are known by the epic pound for pound, drag-pulling fight that leaves many avid anglers in a state of addiction. Redfish are generally regarded as more difficult to find and catch than speckled trout, which only adds to the addiction. There are a few basic things that you need to know before going to chase reds. If redfish hear/see you they will stop feeding. Signs to find redfish are slicks, mud boils, scared bait, and birds working fast. You always want to pair these signs up to find fish. My personal favorite sign of feeding fish are birds working low, and hard across the water. Things you should avoid doing while hunting redfish are slamming boat hatches, stomping on the deck, dropping things on the boat, and playing loud music.  Learning to find and catch redfish consistently takes a lot of time, patience, and persistence. It can even be downright frustrating. Donít get discouraged because learning this skill is no easy task. Hiring a good guide to take you out for reds can help you put it all together. One of my favorite things about being a fishing guide is putting someone on their first redfish because it is usually one of those things you never forget and itís very satisfying for me to be a part of that. To book a trip with me or inquire about a trip you can call/text me at (313)384-6463.

To see pictures of my most recent fishing trips, go to my Facebook Page and if you want to catch a whole lot of fish and need to reserve your trip date, call 313-384-6463 or send me an e-mail.  I will get back to you just as soon as I get off the water!

6-2-2016: Fishing has really been hot over the last month. Redfish have been great for me with limits on the days that I've fished. Trout have also been good from what I've been seeing coming into the cleaning stand. Look for the conditions to remain the same for June. School is out now and I still have some available dates yet to book in June. Give me a shout and we'll see if we can't get you hooked up!
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!
