Meet Capt. Kevin McCoy

1-1-2015: Hello Everybody!

Catching is still great. Reds are in the flats eating piggy and pin perch. the fish are in the upper end of the slot with some oversize mixed in. Trout are still hitting live croaker and soft plastics are working well too. The frontal systems have begun and the water is cooling down. The next two weeks should be good to go BUT I don't think I would want to be a fish!!!!!!!!!!

INTERESTED IN HUNTING?

Call Capt. Brent Hopkins:

 

Update: January thru February 2015

My duck hunting trips have been pretty good overall with a good mixed bag of birds most days. Some days have been tougher than others, but we're still having some good quality duck hunts. We're not quite killing limits every day, but we've been able to get most of our bag limits. Average morning hunts have been consisting around 10-20 birds in the bag. I still have some open dates yet to book if you're looking to get in on some duck hunting. Call me or shoot me an email and we'll see what we can get worked out. I also run afternoon hunts as well if you prefer.
I took some time off during our duck season split (Nov 30 - Dec 13) so I haven't been fishing all that much except for the last week since our duck season re-opened. Catching was a little bit tough a couple of days, but the other days I've spent fishing has been limits of reds as usual for me. Anchor fishing from the boat using mullet, or wading with plastics has been most productive for me. The only thing I can complain about is the lack of wind we've been having around here lately.
This will be my last fishing report for the year, and I will not be posting another report until around mid March 2015 or so. After duck season ends on January 25th, I will be going right into my hog & javelina hunts that I run & sell over a good part of the state. If you're interested in getting in on a fun relaxing kind of hunt, give me a shout and I'm sure we can work you in somehow or another. I offer un-limited hogs & varmints, hunting at night, along with a javelina if you're in the market for this kind of hunt.

1-19-2015 - Hey There South Texas Giggers and Anglers!!!
It's been wet, cold and windy, doesn't add up to good gigging or even fishing opportunities around here, in fact....but this week promises to be very nice.  I am already feeling a little bit of spring in the air as we approach February.  So, I will have to base my report on just 2 trips this first 2 weeks of January, the weather has just made it really tough. First trip, we went south to my winter time grounds and found Sheepshead, a few Drum in the 20-24 inch range and some small flounder about 6 or so and the largest was 16 inch. We were so cold that we came in after just 2 hours but, we did have around 20 fish total. Some good fillets came off those sheep and drum!  Second trip, was a little warmer weather ,we slammed 20 sheepshead in an hour, then we chased a school of good size drum and ended up with 8 all real nice around 24 inch, but they stayed in 2 to 3 foot of water in that full moon and they were hard for my customers to gig. We rounded that night off with 8 flounder and they were all small but fat! All this in about 3 and a half hrs! took me longer to clean then to make this catch .a great catch that weighed in around 150 lbs. Total fish count was 34 fish! I have some days open still, but we will have to work around the weather a while longer, Fish on Friends!

May your fishing always be catching,

Capt. David Dupnik is One of the Most Successful Flounder Gigging Experts in the Coastal Bend.

 FLOUNDER GIGGING AT NIGHT IS FANTASTIC! 

1-19-2015: Well, the flounder gigging has slowed down quite a bit since late December. Right now the flounder are averaging 3/4 of a pound to a pound and half. Most of the big fish have moved out to the Gulf, and will make their return for the Spring Flounder Run. There are lots of small fish, all under 10 inches - which means good things for the summer time action. We should expect the Spring Flounder Run to begin by late February/early March. March and April produce some of the best flounder gigging in the Coastal Bend. There will be LOTS OF FISH, nice weather and clear water.
May you all enjoy family & feasts in the upcoming weeks, and have a Happy Holiday Season!

1-19-2015:  Hey Folks, sorry its been a while, we have been picking up decent numbers of Black Drum schooling up along shorelines and still finding some Redfish and an occasional Flounder on the flats near deeper water guts on cuts. We have been getting the drum on shrimp. Keep in mind that Redfish tend to stay up on the flats year round. I still have a few days left this month and it's not to early to start making plans for Spring Break 2015, Easter and Memorial Day Weekend. Weekends always fill-up fast so reserve now!
