8-15-2014: Hello To Everyone, Fish "catching" has been an on again off again experience to explain it gently. The August Article I wrote seems to be right on target. You're not going to load a box every time you go out. I know I try as hard as anyone to put the clients on the fish, but sometimes the fish do not get the memo to eat. For instance, when my Family and I went in the airboat we saw hundreds of Reds and Black Drum. They simply would not hit our bait. Strange as it may seem that's just the nature
of the beast, on again off again. Use shrimp for the Black Drum, Croakers and Piggies for Trout/Reds. I'm seeing more and more clues by the way the fish are acting that the "Prime Time Red Fishing Time" is just around the corner. Please book a trip, or two with us and "lets go catch you some memories". Also, please read my August
Article and check out the photos. I believe it will hit home for you.
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...

8-15-2014 - Hey There Flounder Gigging and Bay Fishing Enthusiasts!

We are still looking at good numbers of flounder out there, however I've noticed their not eating as much, kinda like when we get hot were not hungry, they are also burying themselves in the mud a lot now because the water is 88 degrees like a bathtub!
Its been brought to my attention the bite for reds is very short in the mornings again try the late evening instead I'm sure you will have much more success were still having way low tides in the evening and dirty water, but those of us doing this regularly have learned to adapt. May your fishing always be catching Stay safe everyone and let's go catch some fish,

 FLOUNDER GIGGING AT NIGHT IS FANTASTIC! 

8-15-2014: Hey Fellow Giggers!  This summer has been fantastic. The flounder gigging is still going strong, very productive with the full moon and low tides. We have been gigging our limit of flounder by midnight, some nights earlier. I had Brandon & his wife from Padre Island, on the boat last night. They asked me to come down & gig on the Upper Laguna Madre. I went down there knowing it would be a perfect night with light SW winds and a falling tide. We gigged their limit of 10 flounder in about an hour, we even passed a few smaller ones for a chance at some nicer size fish. Most averaging 3 pounds each. Drum are out and we have been gigging 5 to 10 drum a night, with a few sheepshead. After I dropped Brandon & his wife off, I decided to go back out commercially. I headed south from the JFK bridge and took Lower Laguna Madre - about a 45 minute boat ride. Water clarity was absolutely horrible, I couldn't see deeper than 18" of water with brown tide everywhere. It took me til 6:00am to find my 30 fish limit. I had 8 flounder weighing over 7 pounds - BIG FISH! 
I still have a few dates available for the end of August & September - Give me a call to - Reserve - 361-790-3271

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

8-15-14:

As the summer comes to a close and the kiddos are getting ready to head back to school , donít give up on the fishing as it seems to be getting better. Well folks, the Redfishing seems to be on the up rise. We have been catching some tournament size Redfish. We have been targeting the redfish shallow with topwater lures and bait early in the morning, and once the sun comes up we have still been sightcasting to schools of black drum and redfish on the flats.
I also specialize in Sight Casting or Sight Fishing for Redfish it is an art that only one can appreciate when being successfully taught. Once you catch your first "sightcasted" fish you will really appreciate the thrill of feeding the fish and watching the eat. Iím going to be honest with you in all aspects. My number one must in sight fishing/casting is to buy the best pair of polarized sunglasses you budget will allow. My personal preference is my Costa Del Mar 580 glass lenses in amber with the green mirror. (hammerhead model) Be sure you choose a frame that lets the minimal amount of outside light in as possible meaning buy the right frame to fit your face. Not all people will have the same comforts in frame.
Some of the other things that are very important in sight fishing is being able to tell which way the fish is facing you want your lure to pass in front of him/her vs. behind. Being able to cast small lures accurately to fish will greatly improve your success rate for catching fish by sight. Itís not always about filling the box with fish! Sometimes feeding/catching one Redfish by sight casting or on a topwater lure where you can see the explosion when it hit can be a trip maker especially if it is your first time fishing without bait.
When you are constantly casting lures for the most part of the day it will also make you a better caster and get more familiar with the rod/reel. Patience is the key to catching fish on lures. Please select your fishing guide and stick to the guide you like and he/she will learn your strengths as well as weaknesses to better fit your fishing style. We as fishing guides all want to see the kids catch fish so they become addicted to fishing as they grow as opposed to out running around on the streets. We work first hand with the kids to make sure they have fun and make memories after all we are here to learn and to have a good time. I will touch more on sight fishing in the near future. Please keep me in mind when booking your next fishing trip. I can be reached at 361-726-5255 or through my website at
www.tailsupguideservice.com tight lines, Capt. James Sabo
August & September are filling-up fast so hurry to book your trip by calling Capt. James today at (361)726-5255.

Whether you are a beginner or a seasoned fisherman Capt. Sabo can accommodate all your fishing addictionsÖ

8-15-2014: Trout fishing has improoved since the wind backed off and set up several days of very calm weather that allowed lots of us to get to the surf. Its loaded with nice trout and limits are caught in an hour or so of fishing. When the wind gets back up we will be fishing the flats as well as Corpus Christi Bay. Were doing real well in the bay as long as the wind allows us to fish there. Live piggy perch has been the better bait for both trout and reds. Most of the larger reds have schooled up now so unless you can find one, the alternative is to find scattered reds in the 20 to 23 inch range. Trout are in deeper channels, around the wells and reefs. Watch the heat on the water. I have had to bring people in suffering from heat related conditions this week.

I still have openings for September and October when the weather is cooler. Give me a call....Ron Moore 361-774-3817

Hello Everybody,
Has the weather the last few days shaped up very nicely. We have had very light winds and the water is finally cleaning up. Trout are still here and still eating piggy perch and croaker. Boat limits or near boat limits are the norm if the weather cooperates. If it is windy 20 trout are common. there is only a few weeks left of the 10 fish limit on trout. Don't miss out. Reds are in the flats eating piggy perch and pin perch. I have not red fished in a while, but I am being told the afternoon is the time to be red fishing. the next two weeks should be awesome-if the weather continues to hold! Once school starts there will certainly be less traffic on the water making for some very pleasant and peaceful days.

Active Military Always Receive 10% Discount!  Families with Children Always Welcome! 8-15-2014: Fishing has really heated up the last few days we have caught easy limits hope this continues through September. We have been finding redfish in shallow flats typically 12-16 inch water depths. Find small sand pockets adjacent to larger areas of grass these fish have been hiding in the grass working into pot holes frequently eating cut baits and live baits. Trout have been best along dagger inland find the slicks, in coming tide has been best for the trout. We have also found some nice size trout in the flats while fishing for redfish. Tide has been extremely low so be careful while navigating the waterways. Hopefully tide will come up to its usual levels soon.
Floundering has been great as we'll. Several 20"+ flounder and limits on a few night gigging trips this week. Flounder are holding on the extremely shallow edges and grass lines along the shorelines. Peak movement time has been after 11:30pm. There has been lots of bait mixed with the flounder do to the low tides but mixed with this bait has been were there hanging out.

8-15-2014

I've been extremely busy for the last couple if months and I've been slacking on my fishing reports. I'm sorry for that for those of you that look forward to reading updated fishing reports. My clients were limiting on their reds, but a few weeks ago the water level really dropped and we were smoking the reds and black drum most days. Then the water started coming back in somewhat and kinda scattered the fish i was on. With last week's super moon, and adding to the equation of rising water and slick calm winds, i had a really rough week fishing. It was more fishing rather than catching. Now that we're on the waning side of the moon my fishing, or lets say catching, has once again been good since last Sunday. School starts back here before long so i know most of you are done with the coast thing for now, but for those of you that are not, I still have plenty of open dates to fill in September and October. I am really looking forward to fall fishing and some cooler weather!
Give me a call today to reserve your spot!

We are targeting redfish and black drum . Today we caught 15 black drum and 3 oversized reds.

Boy these reds that we have been catching are no slouches . They have ranged from 33 inches to 38 inches . After a few minutes we finally are able to land them .

7-3-2014: Reflecting back on the last few days I recall myself thinking...what a whirlwind! The winds picked up and made us work hard, but all in all we still managed a decent box at the end of the day. Redfish and black drum have been in our local waters of Rockport as well as some good trout if your wading. Large numbers of trout have been further south. Either one you choose, I will try my best to put you on fish. High tides and high winds this week have made it a challenge for everyone. Hopefully soon we will get back to the normal winds that blow 10 to 15 mph and bring the good fishing with them! Remember, give me a call for your next fishing adventure!

8-1-2014: Hello fellow fishermen. Fishing has remained steady with good numbers of trout being caught on live croaker on days with light winds. Dagger and Traylor island are holding fair amounts as well as the mid bay reefs in Aransas bay. Upper slot sized reds are in the deeper sand pockets in Redfish bay. Cut mullet, perch, and crab are the baits that they are preferring. Lots of black drum being taken on dead shrimp and Gulp lures in the back lakes of San Jose island with some good size to them. Don't forget the sunblock and drink plenty of water.
