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

5-1-2017: Howdy Folks!  Many of you are sitting at the house and reading fishing reports, thinking about summer vacation right about now. If you have not been down to Port Aransas, Aransas Pass, Rockport, Corpus Christi area yet and have never been flounder gigging, this would make a great family vacation destination! It is a lifetime memory for all ages. You'll be enjoying the fresh air, beautiful beaches, and the wildlife at night that we are able to see. I have had some awesome trips over the past few weeks, with lots of flounder coming aboard. We had a good turnout this last weekend at the Port Aransas SandFest, a must-see at least once. There were over a hundred thousand people in town to see the craftsmanship that they are able to build out of sand.  The spring flounder run is almost over with lots of flounder pouring through the Port Aransas jetties, making their way to Rockport & Aransas Pass. The water temperature is in the high 70's and that means it's prime-time and easy pickins! It has been taking us about 2-3 hours to gig a 20-25 flounder limit, sometimes quicker depending on weather conditions. There are very few sheepshead and black drum up on the flats, we have only gigged one or two each night or sometimes not even seeing any. The flounder are average size for this time of year, ranging from 1.5-2.5 pounds. Most of my fish have been laying on hard, sand bottom anywhere from 4-18 inches of water. It's going to be a great summer to go gigging! Don't wait too long to book your trip - dates fill up quickly! Please check out my Facebook page and "LIKE" to view recent photos.

5-1-2017:  Croaker are in the bait stands but even if they're a little small we're still catching some nice trout. Target the deeper water along drop offs and the side of the deeper reefs. Work the area thoroughly before moving to the next area as the croaker are small. Outside of Traylor on an east wind has produced the best results. Reds are up on the flats in Aransas/Rockport area. They are moving around quite a bit so you'll have to look for them. Using fresh shad has produced the best results.  Target potholes and shell areas.  HAPPY MEMORIAL DAY TO ALL!!

5-1-2017: Well here it is, May, already. School is almost out for Summer Break and it is time to plan your fishing trips. The Trout bite has been excellent fishing in two to three feet of water over shell with live shrimp and a popping cork. The water temps are still rising and the Trout are starting to spawn. It is time to make the switch to fishing with Croaker. We prefer to free line them for the best results. Red fish are plentiful this time of year. We are doing well casting live shrimp, fresh dead shrimp, live mullet and cut crab. There are a ton of just undersized Reds everywhere. You will have to catch and release several of these smaller fish while waiting for the slot Reds. Be patient and take plenty of bait you will end up with a limit. The Surf Fishing is cranking up. Excellent catches of Red fish and Trout are being caught. The wind has been brutally high this past week and has made the surf very high. Before you go be sure and check the wind forecast and plan accordingly. Have you booked your fishing charters yet? It is time to book those summer trips. Call us and get in on the action before we are all booked up. 361-790-3746 or 351-790-3742.

5-1-2017 Hello To Everyone!  Basically it is the same story...fish live, or dead baits, in the potholes. Live shrimp under a popping cork is working well, but perch etc., will also attack your bait, so buy more than you think you'll need. If you can get live fingerling mullets hook them in the tail and free line them in the pot holes. Unless a norther comes through and blows them out the fish are everywhere. The trick is finding them and catching 'em. Please contact us and "lets go catch you some memories".

5-1-2017:  Fishing this month has been extraordinary. The fish numbers are good and catching limits of trout on shrimp and croaker. Certainly have had some windy days and have had to fight the wind, but seems to be calming down a bit as we go into the month of May. The red fish has been consistent. Some days with shrimp others with cut mullet or shad. I've been out to the Bayou and the bite is picking up! It should turn really good in May. Come get you some! If you have some time off, give me a shout and we'll book a fishing trip for the family, for business, or just a getaway. Days are booking up fast, so call as soon as you have some free days.

5-1-2017: Hello Everybody! Weird weather! One day calm, then windy, then hot as heck, and then cold. What is going on? The fish do not know. One day reds are everywhere in the flats and then the next very hard to find. When you do find them they eating everything you put in front of them. Most are eating shad and Pin Perch very well. The croaker are here, but still small overall. There are some good ones mixed in. In a couple of weeks everything should stabilize. The tide runner trout are filtering in. Overall, fishing is good and can be great depending upon the day. Everything will settle down and the regular pattern will develop. give your favorite guide a call and spend some time on the water. You will be glad you did!

Beginners to Seasoned Anglers - Come on, Let's go!

5-1-2017: Fishing charters in Corpus Christi have been going really well and we've been getting limits of nice sized trout and sight casting black drum in the Laguna Madre. We've been free lining live shrimp or using popping corks with live shrimp for trout and sight casting black drum using dead shrimp on a jig head. Baffin Bay fishing charters are great right now too. We've been catching redfish and trout on popping corks with live shrimp and easy limits of good eating sized black drum using dead shrimp on bottom!  Happy Memorial Day, folks!!!

5-1-2017: Well the winds are blowing hard and were still getting cold fronts probably last through mid-May then they'll start calming down. Getting limits most every night with a few nights tougher due to windy conditions which makes it much harder but did gig some that were big-uns - in the 3 lb. range!
THE BOAT IS FINELY DONE AND JUST IN TIME FOR SUMMER!!!
"I love the way it handles - in rough water and high winds to shallow water and night-time fishing - it's perfect!
Maximum Capacity is 6 plus me, Capt. Joe!

The new boat has a 150 Yamaha 35 hp air motor LED underwater lights and LED lights above, she steers good and goes shallow for some great flounder gigging!  Expect a smooth ride across the bays because she has a lot of weight at 24' and 80" wide, now that's a lot of boat.... and I still have a few special items to add, but once I get her dialed-in, she'll be the best on the bay!!

My weekends are starting to book-up, having many calls now but we fish 7 days a week - so give a call, check the calendar and come-on down!
