5-17-2015: Hello To Everyone! How about some rain, then how about some more rain, and then...? Yes, it is wet and if you're located in the Coastal Bend to Austin you have been getting rain and a lot of it. The ironic thing about it two years ago we were crying for rain, therefore, I'm not griping about moisture now! Get a rain slicker and as long as it's not lightning lets go catch some Reds and Trout . If you are drifting free line your bait and if you are anchored up in the grass use a cork in the potholes. The bait stands have Croakers, Shrimp, Mullets, etc. In certain areas you will need Croakers, in other areas you will need shrimp, so keep throwing both till one proves productive. Like I say, get a rain slicker, and "lets go catch you some memories!"  Call: 432-349-0353
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".

5-17-2015:  Well we can officially say that Spring is Here and the temperatures are warming up. I can also say the fishing has been great as of the last few weeks. I am getting live bait consistently  now. The early spring rains and the water flow through Cedar Bayou is helping fishing tremendously. I have been catching good numbers trout with live shrimp under a rattle cork drifting ,anchored , and wading on shell. The sand grass flats is starting to produce good fish also wading and drifting. There also have been good numbers of fish caught in the surf at cedar bayou on plastic and dead bait on the bottom. If your looking to fish give me a call. This time of year is really good. I have good dates still left open in May and a few in April.

 FLOUNDER GIGGING AT NIGHT IS FANTASTIC! 

5-17-2015: Howdy Gigging Fans!  After the big rains up and down the coast the past couple of weeks and the relentless high winds, the gigging action has been hot and heavy!  We have had some big bull tides over the last couple of weeks, and there has been some big schools of flounder pushed in from the Gulf up onto the flats. With the water temperature hanging in the mid-70s and the slow incoming tide, the flounder have been wanting to come up into the shallows early in the night. I have been finding most of my fish on hard sand around title movement points of the island. The flounder are averaging 15 to 18 inches. It has been taking about 4 hours to gig a 20 fish limit with very few drum and sheepshead.  It looks like we are going to have some awesome flounder gigging this summer! Don't wait, RESERVE YOUR TRIP NOW!
I still have weekday availability and some weekends, don't wait - CALL NOW 361-790-3271 to RESERVE!
*I am still offering late night or second group trips!*

5-17-2015:  Hello Everybody! If you have not planned your trip to the Coast please do so. I think this year will be phenomenal! The weather pattern is causing lots of rain but it will turn nice again.  Even in spite of the rains, the fishing has been great1  Reds are all over the flats and eating anything you put in front of them. Once again...boat limits have been common for a while and over sized reds are not uncommon. trout are here and coming in everyday. Shrimp and a popping cork is the best option, but they will also hit artificial presentations. Croaker are here, but still on the small-side - and the last time I had checked the bait stands in Aransas Pass, they were still not bringing them in due to their small size.  So we wait for a little while longer, but otherwise the fishing has been producing great numbers of redfish and some black drum too!

5-17-2015 - Hello South Texas!
Fishing has been, well tough, rain, fresh water and wind is what were dealing with, however I know the fish are here.  Took out a party of 4 , won't give the location because of wanting to protect the spot, but we had our 20 flounder in the boat by 11;30 pm, and half of these went 2 lbs and better, of those we had a 4 and a 6, the 6 was a 25 in flounder gigged by a young lady. Way to go Emma ,these guys were first timers and put every fish in the boat, and man was it windy!!!  No other fish were present and the lack of big mullet told me the water is just to fresh, tomorrow I will take my team of ladies out for Babes on the Bay, its raining cats and dogs again right now and saying tomorrow will be difficult goes without saying, but we will go, catch some fish and make it a good time for all. We need this rain ,do not mistake me , its difficult maybe.... but good things will result from this.

Hope to see you soon! thanks for reading - The Flounderman!

5-17-2015 Hello to all!  Well we had our share of rain. But This has not slowed the fishing down. For all the Trout fishermen the croaker have arrived and the trout bite has been great. We've had limits coming in steadily. Trout our holding on the grass beds in 3-4 feet of water. A Crocker free lined will get you bit. We can look for the trout fishing to get better and better as we go further into summer. Redfish are excellent in 1-2 feet of water. Work the sand pockets and shell pads. There biting on a verity of baits. Try shad, pin perch and sea lice. If you like to throw artificial try a gold spoon early and late. The black drum our biting on live and fresh dead shrimp around the shell in 2-3 feet of water. We had some high tides the last couple of weeks and it's brought a lot of fish in the bay's and flats. Our fishing will be at its best from May thru October. I would also like to remind everyone that the best days to fish are during the week if possible. You will see less boat traffic on the water and better conditions. But then again the best time to fish is when you can. Hope to see you soon - weekends fill-up fast, so book your trip now!
Still have a few days left this month!  Have a great Memorial Day!  Book Now - Weekends Fill-Up Fast!

Fishing, or let's say catching, has been great for me these past couple of weeks. Although the water is a little higher than I would prefer it to be, but I'll take it.

SUNSET CRUISES,

5-17-2015  Redfishing has been good on cut bait while fishing the potholes from Rockport to Ingleside Carolina rigged with 5/0 Mustad hooks with oz egg weights. Trout fishing has been good on lures while wading in 3-5 of water over sandy grassy pockets that gets good tidal movement. Black Drum should be showing up soon on Grassy shorelines closed to drop-offs. The spring tides have brought us a great supply of bait sources and the fishing should continue to get better.
