7-16-2014: Hello To Everyone, The wind has begun to calm down now and thank goodness for that.  It still blows hard some days, but all in all it has been good fishing
weather.  Question is why aren't you here going fishing with us?  As I have mentioned in previous Fishing Reports I have been going south of the JFK Bridge several miles and doing fairly well on Croakers for Trout.  The "bite" has been strange to say the least.  Instead of finding a spot and whacking 15 to 20 you'll hit one hear and one there, 2 hear and 2 there, and so on.  Sometimes you hit a monster, or two.  Please check out the photo accompanying this Report    I believe what has changed  the "catching" during the day was the full moon. Always know if you're going to be fishing during that phase.  On a bright night the fish eat all night and are not hungry, so plan accordingly.  Croakers for Trout and Menhaden for Reds. 
Please contact me and lets go "catch you some memories".
 You can contact me via our website...www.tigernetfishguideservice.com, by our e-mail... tigernet@cableone.net or just pick up the phone and call!

 

I promise I'll give you 120%  of Pure Fishing Excitement so...

Let's Go Fishing!!!

Experience the Thrill of Catching "Really Big" Fish!

This is always my favorite time of year. Red Snapper Season opens on the first of June and the beautiful BIG RED SNAPPER come in for some great table fare. This year has many changes we are looking at . We have a very short Federal season of June 1 thru June 9th. Texas is trying to help us in the management of Red Snapper. Please take the time to read the new reporting system Texas has implemented to help us fight against this crazy short season the feds have imposed upon us.

July 18, 2014 - Hey There Flounder Gigging and Bay Fishing Enthusiasts!

Were catching limits of flounder every night, on the 8th of July a customer gigged a 6lb. 24-inch one at an undisclosed location It was the first one of the night. Quite a few places the water has become off colored, but when you hit clear water its game on, some of the bay guides are reporting flounder catches up on the flats , that's good news for all. Still have some openings this month so reserve your date, plan your trip and come experience the best of the Texas Coast!
Stay safe everyone and let's go catch some fish,

7-16-2014:  Hello Everybody,
The wind finally laid and trout fishing has been outstanding with boat limits early (30 to 40 trout) and quality trout mixed in up to 27 inches. The forecast is for the wind to pick starting tomorrow, Thursday the 17th. Hopefully for a short time! I have not red fished for sometime, but I am hearing some days great and then some days very tough. Regardless of weather, catching will be very good and the trout limit changes on September 1, 2014 thanks to the political pressure of CCA even though Parks and Wildlife data and statistics showed an improvement in the trout fishery. There are about six weeks of ten trout per person left so do not miss your chance to come to the Coast. You will not regret it and fun will be had by all.

Until Next Time, Go Fishing!

7-16-14: Hey folks. I have been kicking the trout's butts this month in Laguna Madre. Getting limits almost every time and catching some 27 to 29 inch trout now and then. Lets go whack um.

 

7-3-14 Hay folks. I have been hammering the trout in the Laguna Madre. Getting my limit pretty regularly . Using croakers for bait. Even with the wind howling its been pretty good fishing. Come on lets go catch some biggunz. Capt. Deano

6-16-2014:  Fishing folks the trout fishing is super hot now. The croakers are bigger and nice enough that they stay alive until the trout hit them. We have been getting our limits pretty much every day in Laguna Madre. So let go catch some of them rascals. Good fishing to you!

 FLOUNDER GIGGING AT NIGHT IS FANTASTIC! 

7-16-2014:  Low tides and light winds has made for some perfect conditions for flounder gigging. Capt. Dave and customers are having some incredible nights of gigging.
I have been running 2 trips, 2 different groups and both groups we are gigging our limit of 20 fish by 2-3am. The flounder seem to start showing up after the moon comes up. The flounder are a little bigger than what we usually see for this time of the year, all averaging 2-3 pounds. I have seen very few sheepshead and drum. When the tide starts to bottom out, that's when you need to start hitting the slough and guts. The water will clear up and the flounder will be laying down in the middle of the guts. I had the pleasure of taking Rodney & Lachell out 3 different times last week, and Rodney gigged himself a 7-pounder!  The rest of July is booked, I still have dates in August & September available. If you haven't booked your gigging trip yet, NOW is the time! 361-790-3271
Just a few dates left in June & July, with more dates in August.

The SUMMER FLOUNDER GIGGING is fantastic - Don't miss out!!  Weekends fill up FAST!
