11-16-15: We're finally getting some cold fronts making
their way all the way to the coast and things are shaping up to be a
good fall fishing and duck hunting season. As I write this report
out, I'm looking forward to this strong front coming in here later
this week expected to drop temps drastically for a change. Fishing
has been good every day except for one when I couldn't manage to
catch a limit of fish. The duck hunting has been hit or miss for the
most part because of there not being a bunch of birds yet, but we've
been averaging around a dozen birds per hunt. I look for this strong
front to really push the birds into our area and drop the water
levels helping me to put clients on more ducks and faster limits of
Duck Season is Underway: I'm seeing plenty of teal and
pintails but the next series of cold fronts will bring them down
into South Texas! Cast and Blast Trips book-up Quickly so
please call me to get your trip on the books!
I still have some dates open if you would like to book
a trip -
Give me call and we'll go stretch
next time remember when the cards are down and the bet is called,
you still have your ...

Compared to last year at this time
we are 2 weeks behind a real cold front . That means we'll be
getting large flounder into late December and early January. The
first 2 weeks of December that's the 1st - 14th ... you can have
2-flounder per person plus 5-sheephead and 5-drum. After the 14th
it goes back to Regular Limits. I have discounted prices during this
time of the year but after the 14th my rates go back to standard
rates. Call for available dates or last minute calls.
Remember the 1st - 14th of December, the floundering will be
excellent with trophy-size flounder being harvested hopefully there
will be an abundance of drum and sheepshead as well!

Capt. Ron can take care of everything for your next fishing trip.
Were picking up the trout while drifting with live piggies as well as
a few reds but most of the reds are coming while anchored. The tide
should be getting lower in November and the reds should be
concentrated along the drop-offs. I have some openings for November
which is my favorite month for fishing. Were still using live piggies
and pin perch for both. The reds have been on the flats in less than 2
feet of water. The trout have also been on the flats. Ph: 361-774-3817

Fishing has been consistent, catching good numbers of reds and black
drum. We've been experiencing extrememely high tides but hasn't kept
the reds from biting. We are now starting the third week of duck
season and are seeing goods numbers of birds. The weather is
starting to turn cooler, and we should have a hard cold front coming
in mid-week. Hopefully this will keep everything flowing through the
end of November. If you want to schedule a day of fishing, hunting,

Cooler temperatures, higher tides and lots of variables in our

is just the opposite of the next. I've found them in the lakes off
the flats and just fishing the pot holes off Blind Pass as well as
California Hole. It's really hard to pin point where they will be at
the next day. One thing for sure when you find them they will eat
cut or live mullet.

As we go into the middle of November we will see our water in the
bay's and flats falling out. Lower water conditions will be around
through out the winter. This will make for good Red fishing and
Black Drum fishing. Look for these fish to be in deeper sloughs in
the flats and along the channels. Baits to use will be Shrimp dead
or live, Mullet and Pin Perch. A few people will be drifting and
wading throwing artificials for trout Using a 1/8 once jig with your
favorite color. Remember when working it to use a slow retrieve as
the fish will be a little slower reacting in the colder
This is a great time to enjoy little pressure on the water. Remember

11-16-2015: Hello To Everyone,
Fishing is good, Duck Hunting is good...why are you not here fishing
and hunting with me??? "Every day you do not go is one less day you
get to go". I'm sure I did not coin that phrase, but what a truthful
statement. My buddies and I since Junior High (a long time ago) have
said and occasionally say even today, "one of these days". One of
these days we are going fishing, one of these days we are going
hunting, one of these days...one of these days! Now some of those
buddies are not with us anymore, so what's our excuse now...too
busy? Well, on another note the Red Tide is basically gone, the
Redfish are plentiful, and ducks are really beginning to "show". For
instance, I was out pre-fishing a few days ago, cast 6 times and
caught 6 fish. Three of those fish were keeper Reds from 24-26
inches and one 17 inch Trout...all on fingerling Mullet. I saw maybe
two hundred Ducks that day. The next day I saw a thousand, or more,
and they have increased in numbers everyday. "One of these days" is
now, so contact us and "lets catch you some memories, and/or invite
a Duck to supper".
If you would like for me to take
you to some of the "line peeler areas" then please contact me and
"lets go catch you some memories"
You can also contact me via our website...www.tigernetfishguideservice.com,

11-1-2015: Whoo doggie the tide is up & the water temp has dropped
some. The catching has been outstanding !!! I had the pleasure of fishing
Scott & Robert Leighton and their wives of Dallas . The baits were placed
along a shoreline of mangroves. I placed one more line totally away from
the other 4 lines off the shoreline and kinda behind us as a feeler line .
It was there to let me know if the fish tried to sneak around us without
knowing it . Sure enough after no action on it for at least an hour the
feeler rod bent over hard . I cast two lines behind us and they bent over
in no time . By the end of the trip we had boxed 7 Black Drum and 10
redfish. Not shabby for a 4hr trip!!!!!!!!!!!! Life is short... Come

It's a great time of year to fish here in the coastal bend. I call
fall the grand slam season because we often come home with reds,
trout, flounder, and black drum to top it off. It's a great time of
year because we can easily target all of everyone's favorite
species! As the first cold fronts approach fish are staging for
their run to deeper water. This concentrates the fish allowing for
good days of catching a lot of fish and several species in a day.
Lately I've been drift fishing with live shrimp on Mid-coast

the highly underrated black drum, and jigging for flounder with
Gulp! Give me call to book a great day of fishing on the Upper
