Active Military Always Receive 10% Discount!  Families with Children Always Welcome! 11-16-2014: Winter pattern has started early this year. Low fishing pressure due to hunting season, Lower tides forced out by cold fronts = (Lots of fish), Cooler weather temperatures and leaving dock at a later time allowing for my customers to sleep in a bit is what makes these trips enjoyable this time of year. There are several reasons these fish drop out of back lakes and out of the flats here are a few notable reasons. Tide levels are a major contributor. Tide levels are influenced by cold fronts just as hurricanes blow water in which create high tide, north wind from a frontal system pushes water out leaving the fish high and dry with nowhere to go but out. if you can find these exits of the lakes and guts inside the flats you can find the fish. Another major reason the fish leave the back lakes is because of the water temperatures. Cooler overnight temperatures cause the fish to seek refuge in the deeper guts which typically has warmer current flow with a muddy bottom which holds heat for the colder nights. Live shrimp, dead shrimp and finger mullet or my baits that I prefer. Love to drag soft plastics along the drop offs... also for trout and redfish, watermelon and pink are the color's I usually throw with colder water temperatures.

11-16-2014: Wintertime is here and the reds and drum are back in the flats, and some nice trout are showing up in a few of the honey holes. Though we don't know what the future holds as far as weather, it seems like it may be a mild winter with a few cold blast now and then. Generally our temperatures November, December and January hover around the 50's to 60's, and often reach 70's to even the low 80's, so don't be afraid to give fishing a try after you've bagged that big buck or stack a few pork chops in the freezer. With Cedar Bayou open, the fresh influx of gulf water into our bays bring warmer water temps, fresh bait, and numbers of fish running in with the currents.

11-16-2014: Hello To Everyone, The front is here and its cold and rainy!! But the fishing has been phenomenal and the duck hunting has been a blast...so to speak. The last two trips fishing I've had both limits...Trout and Reds each day! Beautiful days and great catching. Piggies have been the bait of choice and it's unbelievable they're still available, but they are. Who knows how much longer they will be. As I mentioned earlier it's cold and rainy. This front will bring thousands of ducks from the frigid north and a "cast and blast" will only make it that much more fun. As you know we have an Airboat now and booking trips. Please contact us for dates available. Lets go "catch and bag you some memories".
Contact me if you're interested in wading for Reds and Blacks.

On another note "Prime Time Red Fishing Time" is just around the corner, so why not book a trip or two, now!

11-16-2014 - Hey There South Texas Giggers and Anglers!!!
Unfortunately, there is little to report this month, we are closed for November. The flounder are staging as we speak and they will be running for the gulf. Because of the much larger population they will be going out in probably 3 groups. The small to medium, then a little later the medium to large ones and then by the end of the month into December ,the largest flounder will move out and they will be 5 to 10 lb. fish. I want to take this time to advertise my special of 2 persons for 200 and then up to 6 persons total for 75 additional. We will get large flounder and gig a lot of large sheepshead and black drum, I promise you will not be disappointed. The first 2 weeks of December is the best time to gig record size fish, it will be cooler, but the rewards will be great! Come get some!

Make your reservation now - plenty of good dates still available thru the end of the year!!

 FLOUNDER GIGGING AT NIGHT IS FANTASTIC! 

11-16-2014: November is my rest & repair month...
Since, the flounder gigging is closed during the month of November, I utilize this time to catch up on some much needed rest and complete any major repairs on my boat. I am more than ready to get back out on the water, patiently waiting for December 1st. The flounder are running heavy already, and looks to be great when the gigging opens back up. You won't want to miss this gigging season. I still have a few dates available during December 1-14, I am offering a special rate during this time when the gig limit will be dropped down to two flounder.
May you all enjoy family & feasts in the upcoming weeks, and have a Happy Thanksgiving.

11-16-2014:  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 and Thanksgiving weekend should see busier than normal boat traffic. I don't think I would want to be a fish!!!!!!!!!!

INTERESTED IN HUNTING?

 

11-16-2014

There has definitely been less fishing pressure around here the last few weeks and the fishing has been great for me and my clients. This past weekend I was able to make one anchor each day, after my duck hunt, to limit my clients out on their fish. Just don't get much better than that. Other days fishing have also been good but I've had to work a little harder for limits.
It's been a little warm here lately and the duck hunting has been a little slow, but we've still managed to shoot some birds. With this little arctic blast we had in here last week though, the birds have shown up and things are looking really good with the ducks really starting to show up now!!
I still have some dates yet to book for the thanksgiving holidays (November) if you would like to get in on some great fishing and or some duck hunting.

11-16-2014: Nothing much has changed since last report. Its still all about redfish. Were catching reds on mullet and live shrimp. The pin perch are still plentiful so were using more mullet. A very low tide will put lots of fish along the drop-offs for a few days and should be easy picking for limits of reds. When the tide is higher were catching fish drifting the flats with live shrimp and popping corks as well as soft plastics. White has been a good color.

I still have openings thru the end of the year... when the weather is cooler.!

11-16-14:  Hey Folks, sorry its been a while, We are starting to see the cool fronts and the fall fishing is in full swing as 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 cut and live mullet. We have been getting the drum on Shrimp, the perch have started and I said stress started to leave us alone as in some previous trips the perch would suck the shrimp off the hook almost immediately so this is a big PLUS in Fall/Winter fishing. Keep in mind Redfish tend to stay up on the flats year round I still have a few days left in November and quite a few days left in December open. Donít shy away from the cold temps during these fall and winter Months, remember fish have to eat too. We can accommodate from the best of anglers to the most novice. We have been fishing from Rockport to Ingleside If you havenít tried sight fishing this might be a great time to learn, please make sure to bring the sunshine with you.

11-16-2014: This cool weather has the fish all confused. They don't know whether to eat or starve. It has really been exciting fishing lately. Haven't had any problem finding my limit of reds, but have had to look for them. They have been in California Hole and also by the Airboat Docks. My normal baits have been still producing, live or cut mullet.

 

Good catching to you,
Capt. Charlie Newton
