5-17-2015: Hello To Everyone! How
about some rain, then how about some more rain, and then...? Yes, it
is wet and if you're located in the Coastal Bend to Austin you have
been getting rain and a lot of it. The ironic thing about it two
years ago we were crying for rain, therefore, I'm not griping about
moisture now! Get a rain slicker and as long as it's not lightning
lets go catch some Reds and Trout . If you are drifting free line
your bait and if you are anchored up in the grass use a cork in the
potholes. The bait stands have Croakers, Shrimp, Mullets, etc. In
certain areas you will need Croakers, in other areas you will need
shrimp, so keep throwing both till one proves productive. Like I
say, get a rain slicker, and "lets go catch you some memories!"
Contact me if you're interested in wading for
Reds and Blacks.
On another note "Prime
Red Fishing Time" is just around the corner, so why not book a trip
or two, now!
Please contact me and
lets go "catch you some memories".

Well we can officially say
that Spring is Here and the temperatures are warming up. I can also
say the fishing has been great as of the last few weeks. I am
getting live bait consistently now. The early spring rains and the
water flow through Cedar Bayou is helping fishing tremendously. I
have been catching good numbers trout with live shrimp under a
rattle cork drifting ,anchored , and wading on shell. The sand grass
flats is starting to produce good fish also wading and drifting.
There also have been good numbers of fish caught in the surf at
cedar bayou on plastic and dead bait on the bottom. If your looking
to fish give me a call. This time of year is really good. I have
good dates still left open in May and a few in April.

GIGGING AT NIGHT IS FANTASTIC!
Gigging Fans! After the big rains up and down the coast the
past couple of weeks and the relentless high winds, the gigging
action has been hot and heavy! We have had some big bull tides
over the last couple of weeks, and there has been some big schools
of flounder pushed in from the Gulf up onto the flats. With the
water temperature hanging in the mid-70s and the slow incoming tide,
the flounder have been wanting to come up into the shallows early in
the night. I have been finding most of my fish on hard sand around
title movement points of the island. The flounder are averaging 15
to 18 inches. It has been taking about 4 hours to gig a 20 fish
limit with very few drum and sheepshead. It looks like we are
going to have some awesome flounder gigging this summer! Don't wait,

Hello Everybody! If you have not planned your trip to the
Coast please do so. I think this year will be phenomenal! The
weather pattern is causing lots of rain but it will turn nice again.
Even in spite of the rains, the fishing has been great1 Reds
are all over the flats and eating anything you put in front of them.
Once again...boat limits have been common for a while and over sized
reds are not uncommon. trout are here and coming in everyday. Shrimp
and a popping cork is the best option, but they will also hit
artificial presentations. Croaker are here, but still on the
small-side - and the last time I had checked the bait stands in
Aransas Pass, they were still not bringing them in due to their
small size. So we wait for a little while longer, but
otherwise the fishing has been producing great numbers of redfish
and some black drum too!

Hear Protection of Flounder - NPR
Hello South Texas!
Fishing has been, well tough, rain, fresh water and wind is what
were dealing with, however I know the fish are here. Took out
a party of 4 , won't give the location because of wanting to protect
the spot, but we had our 20 flounder in the boat by 11;30 pm, and
half of these went 2 lbs and better, of those we had a 4 and a 6,
the 6 was a 25 in flounder gigged by a young lady. Way to go Emma
,these guys were first timers and put every fish in the boat, and
man was it windy!!! No other fish were present and the lack of
big mullet told me the water is just to fresh, tomorrow I will take
my team of ladies out for Babes on the Bay, its raining cats and
dogs again right now and saying tomorrow will be difficult goes
without saying, but we will go, catch some fish and make it a good
time for all. We need this rain ,do not mistake me , its difficult
maybe.... but good things will result from this.
Hope to see you soon! thanks for

Looking for a great Texas coastal fishing guide and if your idea of
adventure is fishing the beautiful, pristine saltwater bays of the
South Texas Coastal Bend area, then you've come to the right place!
Perhaps you'd prefer wade fishing or drift fishing Aransas Bay,
Redfish Bay, South Bay, Copano Bay, San Antonio Bay, Mesquite Bay
and Corpus Christi Bay. If it's more of an eco-style fishing
adventure you're after, then try out a nature and birding trip
around the Barrier Islands - Mustang Island, St. Joe's Island and
other scenic stops along the Intracoastal waterway! When wind and
weather conditions allow, fishing with us will be one of the
greatest experiences you've had on this part of the Texas coast.

5-17-2015 Hello to all! Well we
had our share of rain. But This has not slowed the fishing down. For
all the Trout fishermen the croaker have arrived and the trout bite
has been great. We've had limits coming in steadily. Trout our
holding on the grass beds in 3-4 feet of water. A Crocker free lined
will get you bit. We can look for the trout fishing to get better
and better as we go further into summer. Redfish are excellent in
1-2 feet of water. Work the sand pockets and shell pads. There
biting on a verity of baits. Try shad, pin perch and sea lice. If
you like to throw artificial try a gold spoon early and late. The
black drum our biting on live and fresh dead shrimp around the shell
in 2-3 feet of water. We had some high tides the last couple of
weeks and it's brought a lot of fish in the bay's and flats. Our
fishing will be at its best from May thru October. I would also like
to remind everyone that the best days to fish are during the week if
possible. You will see less boat traffic on the water and better
conditions. But then again the best time to fish is when you can.
Hope to see you soon - weekends fill-up fast, so book your trip now!
Still have a few days left
this month! Have a great Memorial Day!

5-17-2015 Redfishing has
been good on cut bait while fishing the potholes from Rockport to
Ingleside Carolina rigged with 5/0 Mustad hooks with ½ oz egg
weights. Trout fishing has been good on lures while wading in 3-5’
of water over sandy grassy pockets that gets good tidal movement.
Black Drum should be showing up soon on Grassy shorelines closed to
drop-offs. The spring tides have brought us a great supply of bait
sources and the fishing should continue to get better.
