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!

1-1-2017: Happy New Year everyone! As we start into the new year, fishing has still been consistent. Wade fishing with lures is producing trout and reds with warmer winter temperatures and in between fronts. The reds and black drum have been good on crab and dead shrimp, on the bottom, from the boat. We still are shooting good numbers of ducks, so hopefully it will hold out until the end of the season. So if you are looking to book something in January, we will watch the weather and get some good fishing and hunting in before the month is out. Call to book a cast and blast, or fishing, hunting trip. We look forward to seeing you in 2017!

Let's start the year with a bang!

1-1-2017: Flounder gigging in the Rockport Texas!  Happy New Year Everyone! December was a warm one - warmer than I've fished in many years - but the flounder were abundant and my customers had no problems getting their limit of flounder. We had one cold front that it was really cold that and it sent the flounder deeper (along with the bait) which definitely made gigging more interesting, but all in all, it was a good December! The above normal, higher tides had flounder and fish in general, scattered but I managed to find them. The sheepshead and black drum were really good the first week of December then it started getting a little harder to get them as the month progressed. Flounder boats though faired very well in spite of the tides and we could just pick them off! That's it for this year and want to thank all the wonderful people that fished with me in 2016... I should be ordering my new boat soon and hope you come back to fish with me again in 2017!! I will give updates on the boat's progress as we move from winter into springtime!  Thanks for looking in and check back next month!!

1-1-2017:  Winter time is finally here after a long time in waiting!  Just before Christmas we received a real cold blast that cooled us, and the water, down to near normal winter time temps. Our duck hunting has picked up considerably with this colder weather, and our fishing has slowed down a little. Just before the holidays i was still smoking the fish with ease, but now in January I'm having to work at it a little harder to put a big box of fish together. This time of year you have to pick your days carefully in which to fish. Warming spells with bright sun is the best days in January, but also days with a front passing through can be good as well no matter the skies.

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

1-1-2017: The flounder gigging around Aransas Pass & Port Aransas has definitely been one for the books during this past December! We have been holding strong on sticking big fish every night - most of the flounder going in the box are between the five to eight pound range. The largest flounder gigged this season was just over nine pounds. The water temperature has maintained in the mid-to-low sixty degrees, and the fish are hanging up in the shallows at night with the better part of the action during the first couple of hours after dark. I have been gigging most of my fish in about two feet of water, over hard sand and short seagrass where there is a lot of current. There was only one time we didn't get our limit after giving up around 2am. Most nights we made it back to the dock with a twenty to twenty-five fish limit by 9:30pm. The next front we are set to get later this week should send the last trickle of big flounder out to spawn, then we will be gigging the smaller winter time fish that stay in the bays year round. Sheepshead and black drum have started to show up with limits of each coming into the dock as well. We had a stellar night on one December trip, with the most fish gigged all year in one trip - 20 flounder, 20 sheepshead, 6 black drum, and 4 pompano!  I have plenty of dates open during the next two months, so please give me a call.
Give me a call TODAY, or you'll be left at the dock. Book your trip NOW!

1-1-2017: Tides are fluctuating right now. The north winds push water out one day and its coming right back the next. With all that going on, the fish are moving from one area to another from day to day.  Up in the Rockport area we've been getting scattered reds in the pot holes around the shell areas using fresh cut mullet. We have found a few piggies at some of the local bait stands and the reds are tearing them up. Working live shrimp under a popping cork on the flats next to the ICW is producing limits of trout most days.  For you waders out there, hit the reefs in Nueces Bay and work down the sides. Best results the last few days has been with Chicken on a Chain in Down South Lures and Gamblers on a 1/8 screw lock jig head. Just remember to have a partner with you when you go. Be safe and watch out for the other waders out there.

1-1-17: GREAT FISHING... HAPPENING NOW!!!

January means AWESOME REDFISH OPPORTUNITIES!

As the water begins to cool down, which is happening late this year, you can switch from piggy perch and croaker to live shrimp and cut baits. We are catching nice red fish fishing the grass with cut mullet. Live finger mullet have been producing nice stringers of Reds and Flounder fishing the flats and back lakes. Trout are still hitting best on Croaker and Perch for now. After another cold front live shrimp under a popping cork will be fantastic.

Surf fishing as of late has been outstanding. Full stringers of large slot Redfish are coming on Croaker, dead shrimp, and live finger mullet.

Free lining live baits will catch you some nice trout. Until next month, Rockport Fishing Trips wishes you tight lines and following seas.
Don't wait - call now: 361-790-3746

Get out on the water and have some fun this summer and until next month may you have "Following Seas and Tight Lines".
