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.

2-1-2017:  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.

Until next time remember when the cards are down and the bet is called, you still have your ...

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

2-1-2017: 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.

 ALL SKILL LEVELS ARE WELCOME HERE! LET'S GO GIGGING!!

2-1-2017: 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 have some honey holes good during this time of year, so give me a ring and lets go tear'em up!

1-1-2017: 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!
