 FLOUNDER GIGGING AT NIGHT IS FANTASTIC! 

3-16-2015: Hello Gigging Fans!  We have had some great weather finally after numerous cold & rainy days. The winds have been nice and calm this past week, making way for some awesome flounder gigging. It is unbelievable how many 13 1/2 inch flounder that are around every night. I have been counting at least 100 or so. They will be keeper fish in another two or three months, perfect timing for some major flounder gigging action during the summer time. With all the flounder beds that are around and the strong outgoing tide at night , I believe the flounder are scooting off the bank a few hours after the sun sets. I have been finding most of my flounder early in the night. The flounder are hanging around short seagrass and hard sandy bottoms.  I have heard reports of a good amount of flounder being gigged up and down the coast. Also, good numbers on sheepshead and drum. Hopefully, we are finally starting to see a little bit of payoff from the new regulations. As long as they leave the regulations as is, and don't decide to add any more dates or drop limits, it will suit me just fine.  There is lots of gigging action taking place at the coast, call now to RESERVE your trip 361-790-3271!

3-16-2015: The weather certainly has straightened out. Highs or in the high 60's to mid 70's. So Nice!! the fish think so too. boat limits of reds and black drum are common in the Aransas area. Drum are eating shrimp and reds are eating shrimp, perch and mullet. Trout are also catchable in different bays and are eating soft plastics. they are also providing great action on live shrimp and a popping cork. Spring Break is here and the weather has really cooperated nicely. Catching will only get better as both air and water temp warm. do not miss your chance for great fun and action.

2-16-2015  The weather has improved greatly since our last report. The water temperatures were in the lower 60s this week. With these improving conditions fishing has been improving. Redfish are in the flats. Try shrimp dead or live and pin perch. Trout are showing up. Target them on live shrimp or artificials in a verity of colors using and 1/8 once jig head. Black Drum have also showed in good numbers when the tide is low. All looks to be shaping up for a great spring. Hope to see you soon!

3-16-2015 - Hey There South Texas Giggers and Anglers alike!!!
WELL IT'S ON!!!  I HAVEN'T GIGGED SO MUCH FISH AS I HAVE IN THE LAST THREE DAYS IN MONTHS!

There are fish everywhere, and we've been getting limits of Sheepshead too!  Last night had a limit of pretty nice flounder...10 fish in 30 minutes.  That's right - all on one little piece of beach, so that new rule in November is really working now. I have never witnessed this many flounder in March.  Just imagine what April and May will bring. The DRUM RUN is starting now, and I had 10 drum for 2 people in a hour with all the fish ranging from 24 to 28 inches (just perfect for grilling)!!  These folks were from Wisconsin and they never had a better time, plus we had 150 lbs. total weight with all three species limiting-out in just 2 and a half hours.  It was fantastic and it's hard to top that boys and girls, LET'S GO GET SOME

3-16-2015: Hello To Everyone, Please read my March 2015 Article on Fishing, Hunting, being Prepared, and Picnics!!!

The fishing three days ago was phenomenal with a 28-1/2 inch Red within 5 minutes on the first cast! The next two days were very slow. The 3 kids and the father that I had taken out had a chance for the next two days at 12-14 Reds, plus one Black Drum. The poles bent over, but they only put 3 in the box. When the fish are this finicky you can
not let any slack in the lines, or they are off the hook, and that is exactly what happened. The Dad told me at the dock they had a great time fishing with me and texted me later the same message. I appreciated their comments, but I was rather disappointed of just three fish in the box. Well that is called fishing, or rather "catching". This time of the year, and any time of the year, keep tight lines. You'll catch more fish. Use Sea Lice and/or shrimp and let them run before you set the hook. Again, these fish are finicky,
so be very slow to set the hook. Please contact us and "lets go catch 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: February 2, 2015

Wintertime is here.........
The offshore fishing trips have slowed down but the fishing is doing good on the days we can make it out.  The bay fishing is doing excellent !!!!! We are catching nice Speckled Trout up to 25", Redfish, Sheepshead and lots of Whiting of nice size, off the docks here at South Bay Marina. The guides are coming in with limits of Redfish and Sheepshead. The kayakers are also doing well with their limits on Redfish. Seems the fish are behind us in the shallow water counted over 14 boats in the back yesterday. Live shrimp is hard to come by. All the guys are catching them with live mullet and dead shrimp seem to be doing the best. It is time to start thinking about booking your fishing trips for the season. We are already taking reservation for the year. Give us a call and we will be happy to assist you in planning your special day out on the water. 361-758-6900.

3-16-2015:  As we journey through Spring and into Summer, look for Redfish on the grassy flats and along shoreline drop-offs. When you see shiny popping and flipping mullet, shrimp, and other baitfish rest assured the redfish wont be very far away. If you concentrate on fishing extremely shallow water of about 10” to about 1’-6” keep your eyes peeled for a glistening Redfish tail to pop out of the water. If you don’t like to chance fishing shallow water with your boat or wading, you always have other opportunities. This is what I like to call “pothole hopping”. Look for Redfish to feed on moving water such as incoming and outgoing tides.
