SPECKLED TROUT BLACK DRUM
GREAT FISHING... HAPPENING NOW!!!
It is time to fish. Fishing has been awesome
as of late. The early morning trout bite as been excellent. You will still
want to fish deep reefs as the water is warm. Get yourself some good live
croaker. Free line them over shell reefs in three to four feet of water.
Don't for get to jog those croaker. You have to keep them moving and
croaking. A slight jig will give you the action you need. The red fish
have returned to the bay's. You will want some good fresh live finger
mullet. Try fishing for them on the edges of reefs in two to three feet of
water. The finger mullet are also great for flounder. This will be a
subtle bite so give the flounder a chance to get the bait in his mouth
before setting the hook. If you don't have any luck with the live mullet
try cutting them up. Red fish can't resist a fresh cut mullet. Want some
black drum? Live shrimp are working well. Find yourself a nice oyster reef
that has some mud around it. The drum are in one to three feet of water
right now. No luck on the live shrimp. Try peeling them. This will
certainly get a drums attention. Are you planning a trip to Rockport? Plan
ahead and book your trip now. We are rapidly approaching the best fishing
months, Sept, Oct and November. Our calendar is beginning to fill up.
Weekends always go first - so book early! May you have following
seas, bent rods and tight lines.
Don't wait - call now!
Get out on
the water and have some fun this summer and until next month may you have
and Tight Lines".

Hello Everybody, August should be outstanding. Trout are plentiful
everywhere and they are eating croaker and piggy perch. They should
continue through August hopefully on into September. Red fish are a
little different story for most, but not all. they are eating piggy
perch, pin perch, mullet and just about anything else you put in
front of them. The reds will only get better as the water heats and
there will be scattered fish kind of grouped together making limits
very possible. Basically fishing is excellent and should continue in
this manner through August. Do yourself a favor, come down to the
Texas Coastal Bend - enjoy some of the finest fishing anywhere!!!

South Texas Anglers! This has been one hot and miserable
july, the water on the shorelines is a whopping 91 degrees,
this limits the numbers and size of flounder because they just
won't stay up shallow for gigging very long, It's been tough
this month and I can not say I'm getting limits of big
flounder because it's just not true, the fish are 15 to 17
inches and a good night right now is 10 to 12 fish. What we
need is a small tropical event to bring in some clean ,cooler
water from the gulf and in it some fish for us to gig, the
number of people getting into flounder guiding has doubled
this year, every where I go now, boats, boats, and more boats
at night, there's an awful lot of pressure on the poor little
flat fish! All I can say is ,we will go out and I will do my
best to get you some fish, and that's all I can do, when we
get some weather and this hot dry pattern ends we will be on
the fish again, till then, we make the best of conditions
beyond our control. Fish on friends!

Hello To Everyone, There is an old saying "You should have been here
yesterday"! Is that not the truth, or another one, "the next day
after ya'll left we hammered them"! Have you ever heard either one
of those statements? I have, I've said them, and many times they are
correct? The main solution is, in my opinion there's nothing
guaranteed, but death and taxes...so if you want to catch fish keep
fishing...the fish are there...do everything you can to catch them.
A couple of weeks back I was getting tired of hearing the Red Fish
are not hitting, they are are not here, no one's catching them.
Well, I decided I would concentrate on trying my best to know WHY? I
went through all the baits mullets: piggies, live, and dead baits.
Then, I decided to go to what has worked hundreds of times in the
past...large chunks of bloody cut mullets. In three trips we had 24
Reds with 18 keepers. Needless to say that does not happen everyday.
If you want to catch fish, then keep casting. For Speckle Trout
double Piggies are working best.

fishing has been outstanding! The trout bite is on fire!! Catching
limits of trout every day on live bait...we have been wading some
and catching trout and redfish on plastics. Redfish bits on bait
have been a little slow and they seem a bit scattered at present...
but still productive for those who wait. Hopefully it will change
within the next few weeks. So come on down - some days still open
for August and September - fall fishing is fantastic and cooler too!
Weekday trips are awesome - looking forward to hearing from you
and maybe this time a wade fishing trip with me at Cedar Bayou!

Well it's hot and I mean hot...with water temperatures as high as
I've ever seen right at 90 degrees and night-time air temperatures
are at 80 degrees - that's pretty warm. I'm getting limits mostly
every night. Gigging some good size flounder in the 16-21" range.
Got into some really nice drum a few nights ago and some scattered
sheepshead but they were kind of on the small-side. The drum are
still good- size plus there is a large amount of bait in the bays -
pin perch, mullet and shrimp seem to be everywhere! Also seeing
large redfish close to drop-offs and along the channel edges - makes
for easy pickin's when throwing cut mullet or live/dead shrimp there
way! I did hear some excellent reports on trout that might help you:
Start shallow early as the morning and then move deeper as the sun
rises higher. Nice catches using croaker and piggies as well as
free-lined shrimp! Have a great end-to-summer and thanks for looking
in...Talk to you next month!

8-1-2016: Summertime is
officially here now that the heat wave is on! Temps here on the
coast have been hot and the fish have been feeling it too. During
this time of the year, you must get an early start and get your fish
before the fish head for deep water and essentially “shut down” bite
wise. I have noticed over the last couple of weeks that if I don’t
get most of my clients limit of redfish before 9am it’s going to be
a grind until the heat drives me off the water by about noon.
Thankfully I have been able to get limits or near limits of reds
before or around 10am most days. On the days that I don’t, it’s
definitely a struggle because of the light winds and very clear
water. Those two kinds of conditions really make it tough to catch
fish in shallow water. Really frustrates me when I can find lots of
fish, but can’t get close enough to catch them. Hopefully we’ll have
some rain in August, and the wind will blow some to aide on my
fishing charters. I still have about 10 days or so left in August in
which to fill up completely for the month. School will also be
starting up the last week or so of the month. So If you’re
interested in booking a trip during August give me a call and we’ll
get you in the books!
I still have some dates open this month, so if you would like to book
a trip -
give me call and we'll go stretch some lines!

It's pretty hot out there!!!! Get on the water early, drink plenty
of fluids, catch em and cook em. The trout bite has been early
morning and usually starts to die off around 9 or so. We have been
fishing out on San Jose last couple of weeks and the trout are
usually in 4 to 5 feet of water. Medium-size piggies has given us
the best bite. If you use small ones, double them up on the hook.
On occasion and when the wind allows it, you'll find me somewhere
out in the surf. Trout bite has been on fire with limits coming in
around 8am. Croaker is the bait to use when out there. We have been
getting mixed boxes with a few reds and a shark or two. If you
decide to go to the surf, watch out for the rollers coming in as you
can be swamped fairly easy. BE SAFE. Nueces Bay has been
producing trout as well. Bounce from reef to reef and look for the
popping bait fish. Once you find the bait, cast close to the reef
and you should see some results.

8-1-2016: Fishing has been great
in Corpus Christi all the way from the Laguna Madre to Baffin Bay.
Recently my professionally guided fishing trips have been catching a
lot of trout, black drum, and redfish. Early in the morning we have
been catching limits of trout with redfish mixed in on free lined
Croaker or shrimp on a popping cork as well as lures. In the later
part of the morning we have been catching limits of black drum with
redfish mixed in on live and dead shrimp. If you're thinking about
going on a guided fishing tour in the Corpus Christi or Port Aransas
area, now is a great time to book your fishing charter.

GIGGING AT NIGHT IS FANTASTIC! CALL 361-790-3271
The hot water temperatures and lower tides have pushed a lot of fish
off of the shallow flats around Aransas Pass. The lower tides have
me running about a 30-45 minute boat ride to find a decent number of
flounder. I estimate we have gigged approximately over four hundred
fish in one spot this past month. The fish have been laying on
deeper sandbars in about two and half feet of water, about one
hundred yards off of the bank, and buried under the cooler sand
bottom. The flounder are averaging in the two pound range. There
might be one or two each night in the 3-4 pound range. Sheepshead
and black drum are starting to show back up as well, and we have
been able to add a few to the box. Book
your trip NOW! Open dates available during late August or September.

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
