LET'S GO WHERE THE WATER IS PRISTINE AND THE FISH ARE ALWAYS BITING!!!  CEDAR BAYOU IS HOT!!!

Looks like we are finally getting our Spring Tide. The water temperature is rising into the low 70's. I just took a couple from San Antonio out and at our first stop we boxed a couple nice redfish in the 25 inch range. Didn't have anymore action so we made our way to another location. While drifting up quietly to our spot I was seeing a few nice clouds of dirt coming up. It didn't take but 30 seconds to have a rod bend and when she started reeling I could tell that it was a real bruiser ; finally landed the fish and it measured 32-1/4 inches. We tagged the brute and put him in the box. We finished up our limits right there. Now is the time to get your trip booked.

Come enjoy a fishing trip with me..........

4-15-2015 With water temperatures in the mid 70's April Has Been Redfish Hot. The redfish have been hot in the flats with limits coming in daily. There biting on a verities of baits. Pin perch, shad, shrimp and sealice. If you like to throw artificials. Look for bait fish in the area. Start out by throwing soft plastics with and 1/8 once jig in darker colors in 1 to 2 ft. of water. The trout bite has been good. Trout our being caught on live shrimp and a popping cork in 3 to 4 ft of water drifting over shell and grass. Artificials our also working well. Throw top waters early then switching to a 1/8 jig in pumpkinseed chartreuse or red and white paddle tails. The weather has been cloudy and the rain had been minimal. My clients have been saying to me how comfortable it is on the water. If you want to get in on some great fishing then give me a call.

4-15-2015:  Reds are in the flats and eating anything you put in front of them. I am using pin perch and sea lice, but they are also eating shad, finger mullet, and shrimp. Boat limits are common especially on decent weather days. Oversized reds are also common with one to two a day expected. black drum are in their usual places eating shrimp (the school fish) and crab and sea lice for the oversize drum. Trout are also beginning to show up in the Aransas area and believe it or not for me the best bite has been on top water while wading. the water and air temp is warming and the season is off to the races. Beat the boat traffic and come down as soon as you can; you will have a blast.

Update: April 15, 2015

Fishing has been pretty durn good the last week if I don't say so myself! With the cool temps and the conditions I've been faced with I've been able to catch limits easy in an anchor or two. Catching and releasing several over sized fish too! I look for these conditions to continue for the next couple of months, at least through May. I still have several dates available if you would like to get in on some heavy duty action busting some big ol Reds.

 FLOUNDER GIGGING AT NIGHT IS FANTASTIC! 

4-15-2015: Hey, South Texas Gigging Fans!  Spring is officially here!
 Hey Gigging Fans,  This year is flying by, already mid-April and soon to be summer! My favorite time for flounder gigging. Make sure to plan early and get your flounder gigging trip reserved. The past couple of weeks we have had a few big rain showers that are going to make the flounder gigging a lot better. Eight days ago, we finally had one of the highest tides of the year, it has been very low tides lately, making it a little bit tougher to get out there and find the flounder. The water temperature is finally climbing into the mid-70's - just what I was waiting for. There is also lots of new sea life coming into the bays.  It has been taking my groups about five hours to gig a twenty fish limit. We have been passing over lots of borderline flounder. We have been finding most of the flounder on hard sand on the windward sides of the banks. The flounder are still around the 14.5 to 16 inch range. There have been very few sheepshead and drum gigged. There is lots of gigging action taking place at the coast, call now!  361-790-3271!

4-15-15:  Well folks the fishing is heating up from Rockport to Aransas Pass to Port Aransas. We are finding good numbers of redfish and drum and some trout too. Look for Black Drum along grassy drop offs and redfish in the potholes up tight to the islands and near good tidal flow areas using live bait and dead baits from shrimp, pin perch and mullet it all seems to be working good. Look for glistening tails popping up in 1' of water or less early morning or evenings are best. Live shrimp under a popping cork is working for trout. I still have a few days open for April and May so don't wait call and get you trip booked today. The calendar will be filled up before long. You don't want to be the only one on your street not experiencing the beautiful gulf coast!!! Call 24hrs a day 316-726-5255. Thanks and tight lines from your Captain!

4-15-2015: The tides have relatively high lately and with the high water comes more fish. Redfish action has been good on sea lice and live shrimp. There are lots of undersize reds around but were finding some larger ones with them. Drifting the flats has been the best method on these very windy days. Trout action is average for this time of year. Live shrimp under a popping cork has given the best results. There should be more trout soon on the flats as the water warms and stays high. Reserve your trip soon for the summer!

4-15-2015:  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.

4-15-2015:  May and June are both good months to fish in with all the good rain we have been getting it helps the saltwater turn into sweetwater for all the fish in our bays flats and back lakes if we keep getting rain it will make the fishing will get better and better we are seeing nice schools of redfish that have moved into shallow flats and back lakes we are catching them on shrimp mullet and crab. There are nice schools of puppy drum that have moved into the flats and back lakes in 1 to 2 foot of water we are using shrimp. Again with all the good rain this will help on the bait fishery hatching earlier than the drought days this means that croaker will be available for trout. The trout are good in 2 to 3 foot range on grassy mixed sand pockets fishing early morning for trout noon for redfish and drum. Thanks. The fishing is good... come get you some!

4-1-2015: Bay Fishing and Flounder Gigging have been great so far this April!  We have been finding many schools of redfish coming into the flats already which means this spring and summer are going to be one of the best year's ever!  Remember that the fishing conditions in April typically mean - moving around to find the fish, so don't get stuck on one, single location. Just because they were there yesterday doesn't mean they are there today. Although the cold fronts have weakened significantly over the last few weeks, the water temps are still cool - so be prepared to fish the drop-offs near the flats... but for the most part, the Redfish will be holding over shallow water around mid-day, getting some sun then dropping back down to drop-offs during the night. Redfish this time of year are picky eaters.  If you're fishing bait, you'll find that one day they want cut mullet, the next peeled shrimp.  Live shrimp has been working for specks along the edges of the ICW and drifting has proved to be the best way to throw-your bait up against the banks. Flounder have been plentiful but mostly seeing the smaller flounder with a couple of nice-sized ones at night!
