3-1-2017: Hi everyone! Well warm temperatures and calm winds means lots of fish not to mention low tides the sheepshead are spawning and flounder are in good numbers according to information I received from other guides. Unfortunately I Don't have a boat until mid April or early May the new boat build is on hear are the dimensions of the boat. It's 24' by 80" hull and 3/16 thick that's a lot of boat it will have 12 under water led lights and 8 above water LED lights all soft white to reduce Clair. Air motor will be a 35 HP Briggs and Stratton with 3 blade prop for lots of power the main motor is a Yamaha 150 hp with a whale tail for a more stable ride and a 39 gallon internal gas tank. Of curse I'll put nice seating for a more comfortable ride that will be last as well as internal lighting for safety and walking around the boat at night. I'll have pictures and start posting them soon!  Until then, thanks for looking in and

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

3-1-2017: Howdy!  Folks, the flounder gigging has been great in the Port Aransas, Rockport, Aransas Pass, and Corpus Christi areas with limits of flounder every night. I have been gigging almost every night since my last fishing report and it's turning out to be an amazing spring/summer with our warmer water temperatures, there are lots of flounder still in the bays. Our "Spring Flounder Run" is right around the corner and the flounder will be flowing in pretty thick through the Port Aransas jetties making their way back to their summer homes, where they will be living till next fall. I've been running all of my trips in-between Aransas Pass and Port Aransas, making for some short boat rides and nice limits of flounder and sheepshead. I usually head to Rockport when I'm out commercial gigging looking at lots of different bottom finding mostly muddy water, but I have still been able to gig my 30 flounder limit every night. All of the fish have been laying really shallow at night anywhere from 3 inches of water up to about 12 inches, over hard sand bottom. I've noticed that the earlier you go the better it is, finding most of my fish right at dark. As the later it gets during the night, the less fish I see. I am coming across lots of fresh flounder beds telling me that they just left. The flounder are averaging 14 to 17 inches. The sheepshead are starting to show up around the Port Aransas area as well, with a few limits of them hitting the dock. If y'all are coming down to the Aransas Pass, Rockport, Port Aransas, or Corpus Christi area for your Spring Break or summer vacation give me a call and let's go make some memories!  Please give me a call 361-790-3271 and "Let's go have a good time!"

3-1-2017: Just getting ready to start the month of March and the redfish are moving in. We've had some warmer weather so the reds are starting to come in too the flats. Bait of choice seems to be finger mullet or fresh cut mullet when you can get it. Focus on the smaller potholes 1st and then move to the big ones. If you're into artificials, the Skitterwalk are the way to go. They make just enough noise to draw them in.
Tides are moving back and forth. One day we have a North wind and the next a South. With that said focus on the deeper potholes on a North wind. Don't forget to check the potholes next to the shell areas.

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

3-1-2017: Hello South Texas Giggers!! It's been a real roller coaster this month! with the wind blowing every direction, rain, and more wind. But we made the best of it, went out about 8 times over the past 4 weeks, and got fish every time, limits of sheepshead was the norm, we also gigged some nice drum and a few flounder here and there. Flounder gigging will be on the rebound soon, it's just kind of depends on mother nature as to how soon. The redfish and drum are everywhere, and the preferred bait has been dead fresh shrimp. Shrimp is always the best all- round winter bait.  As long as it's in good supply, you are sure to land some good catches.  Fish the drop-offs on the bays and even the edges of the ship channel.... it's still too early for the big drum in the ship channel, but it's coming up very, very soon!

May your Fishing Always Be Catching!

3-1-2017: Hello To Everyone! It has really been a short winter as far as cold weather here in Rockport. The excitement is April fishing should be phenomenal because of the mild winter.
