GIGGING AT NIGHT IS FANTASTIC! CALL 361-790-3271
LOW TIDES - FAST LIMITS The Coastal Bend gigging action
is holding strong. Limits of flounder are coming in every night! The
low tide has made for some easy gigging. The flounder have nowhere
to hide. The slow outgoing tide at night is pulling crystal clear
water off of big shallow flats, which has made it pretty easy for
spotting the flounder. I have found most of my fish laying in
the bottom of guts in about three feet of water, leading up to big
shallow flats. Most of the flounder are averaging about two pounds,
typical summer size. All of the fish have been laying on hard sand
and short seagrass. We have been gigging a thirty flounder limit in
about three hours. I have had lots of 6 person groups this
summer, and can easily accommodate thanks to the new boat. If you
haven't made it out yet, give me a call.
There are plenty of available dates
in August! Don't get left at the dock - book your summer gigging trip early!

GREAT FISHING... HAPPENING NOW!!!
Hey folks it is July and here come the days
with little to no wind. This is a perfect time for surf fishing. Join us
for a trip to cedar bayou. Fishing the surf at sunrise is an excellent way
to catch some really nice trout. The trout bite has been good fishing with
croaker over shell reefs in two to three feet of water. As the water
continues to heat up the trout will move deeper until we are fishing up to
six feet deep.
Red fish are being caught on cut crab and finger mullet fishing next to
grass with a mud bottom.
The black drum are excellent fishing fresh peeled shrimp next to reefs.
Don't wait - call now!
Get out on
the water and have some fun this summer and until next month may you have

Hello Everybody, Trout fishing is very, very good with boat limits
99 to 100 % of the time. They are eating croaker and piggy perch.
Red fish are off a little. I have not been in the flats in sometime,
but the guys fishing there for red fish are telling me they are
scarce most days. Early in July, when the tide, drops out, red
fishing should pick up. As always July will be an outstanding month.
Trout and reds should be available and July is midway through the
summer. I would suggest you plan a trip to the coast and enjoy the
area activities. I simply do not see how that could be a bad choice.
Memories will be made and fun for all will be shared.

South Texas Anglers! Fishing this month is nothing short
of fantastic! We are still getting some nice size fish
and there is a real abundance of 15 to 16 inch keeps every
where we go, there's been some rain, but 2 days later
everything goes back to normal, we also get the almost rare
25-26 inch flounders! There are Redfish now in
both island moorings and the Lydia Ann channel by Port
Aransas, one slough off the Lydia Ann had a large group of 25
to 30 inch reds, they muddy the water so much ,I had to move
somewhere else to gig flounder. We sure needed some mullet and
poles just then. Trout and drum are still on St. Joe
across from Rockport, all though the fish on St. Joe aren't
the biggest, there are plenty of keepers mixed in. There
was a report yesterday of some very large trout being caught
in the surf in front of Cedar Bayou.

The Spring Flounder Run has been
in FULL FORCE and we are seeing some excellent sized flounder
for this time of the year!! The flounder have been hanging
around in hard sand areas near drop-offs. We are giggin a 3-4
man limit of flounder in roughly 3-4hrs. Most of the fish are
averaging 2.5-3lbs. The tides have been considerably low
compared to last month with some hard wind. I predict that
July will bring some hotter days which in return will make for
some nice calm floundering nights!! The rest of the Summer
will be spectacular and I can't tell you how pumped up I am to
finally be able to unveil my brand new FLOUNDER GIGGIN
MACHINE!! My new boat is on the final stage of completion and
should be ready in about 1-2 weeks for booking. So don't
hesitate and book your flounder giggin trip today!! I
also added another boat to my fleet. It is a 24' Carolina
Skiff with an Evinrude E-tec 175hp outboard. This boat will be
only used for my trout and redfish trips. The trout and

Hello To Everyone, Trout fishing is still good to excellent
and the Red Fish are still scattered. When you find them (Red Fish)
they are in a "pile", but finding them with as much rain as we have
had, that has scattered them, can sometimes be difficult. Croakers
are obviously in the Bait Stands, but Piggies are beginning to show
up which in my opinion is very good news. The Fourth of July is on
its way so if you have not booked yet I would suggest to do so
A.S.A.P. Please contact us and book a trip, or two. If you have any

the beginning of June, the trout bite has be fantastic. With limits
of trout everyday, the summer fishing season is in full swing.
Either wading or fishing out of the boat with live bait or
artificial we're sure to catch a box full. Leaving before dawn and
coming in before it gets hot, your fishing experience will be a
memorable one. With water temperatures well into the 80's, it's
definitely time for a trip to Cedar Bayou. Overflowing with life,
the Bayou surf and surrounding area are a great fishing experience
for the avid fisherman or fun family outing. So, if your ready to
fish, come on down their are still some open dates in July and

Hi everyone! Well it's hot and so is the flounder gigging this time
of year! I'm bringing-in limits most nights (except a
couple of nights were the wind was kicking up). The
average flounder sizes are 16" to 18" and my customers had quite a
few from 20-23". One was even 6 pounds. As for sheepshead and drum -
always picking-up a few here and there as we go! Reds are on
the drop-offs where a lot of bait are hiding-out in the grass.
The trout can also be found near the grassy areas. If you get
a chance and are your own captain, try hitting the small oil
platforms for nice-size trout. Use croaker and shrimp
free-lined for best results!

it was due to get hot since summertime is now officially here.
Fishing had been really awesome for me, but now it seems that I
either land on them and catch limits of red fish real fast, or I
struggle and scratch a few out through the morning. Thankfully most
days in the last week I've landed on them since the water has fallen
out and we have lost most of our wind. Those windless days have been
brutal because of the humidity and sun bouncing off the water.
Typically July is a very good month for me, I just hope it holds!

It's time to get out and go fishing. The trout bite has been
extremely good the last few weeks. It's been a early morning bite
using croaker or piggies on the drop-off on San Jose, Traylor and
other areas. Some days the trout want croaker and some days piggies
so take a little of both and use a size 5 or 6 croaker hook.
Sometimes the bite dies off and you might have to move once in a
while but you'll still get em if you work your bait. Nueces
Bay has been doing well producing good trout on the reefs using the
same bait. It's normal to hook a red once in a while so move from
reef to reef and work your bait. Red bite has slowed somewhat
during this time of the year as they usually move out of the flats.
But if you go slow and move around you can find some here and there.
The drum are starting to show up so keep some fresh dead shrimp in
the ice box. Look for the wakes along shorelines and go slow or
you'll spook them. They'll disappear quick if you make to much

Anglers - Come on, Let's go!
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
