MORE BIG FISH GUIDE SERVICE

Fish the bays and flats surrounding Aransas Pass, Port Aransas, Rockport, and Corpus Christi with Capt. Ron.

Our area is home to some of the most fertile fishing grounds found on the Texas Gulf Coast.  Whether your desire is fishing for trophy speckled trout, monster bull redfish, wade fishing, fly fishing, or fishing with artificial lures, Capt. Ron can take care of everything for your next fishing trip.

 

 

 

10-2-2014: Fishing is still mainly about redfish. Were catching lots of reds on the flats using live piggies. The tide has been above normal at times so were fishing near islands and reefs around the flats. Reds like shallow water so try to find a water depth of about 12 to 18 inches. Were catching a few trout on the flats as well while fishing for reds. Most of the trout are 15 to 18 inches and red are 20 to 23 inches. October is generally a good month for both trout and reds. I hope you can get in on it.

I still have openings for October & November... when the weather is cooler. Give me a call!  Capt. Ron Moore 361-774-3817

10-2-2014: The water is higher than high. Don't think I've seen it this high in over 30 years. The reds are hiding in the back lakes and along the shore line, I guess to get out of the deeper water. They have been schooling up along various shores. One thing for sure their appetite hasn't changed. They are still gobbling up cut and live mullet. Good catching to you.

Active Military Always Receive 10% Discount!  Families with Children Always Welcome! 10-2-2014: FALL IS IN THE AIR NOW!!!  Water has cooled down, days have cooled and fishing for redfish and night gigging is hot right now. Limits have been common this week although the fish have made us work for them we have been gigging some nice flounder and catching nice redfish. Flounder have started to stage to prepare for their travel later in the year, we have been gigging multiple fish in the same area usually in sloughs and drains. Average size of flounder has been 18" as the run nears we will start seeing some larger fish. Remember flounder gigging is closed for the month of November so October is filling up fast, I have several days open in December for night gigging available.  On our day trips I have found redfish have been holding very shallow less than 2 foot water depths. Bait of choice has been cut bait and live perch if anchor fishing, or soft plastics with natural color artificials. We are still running into some schooling redfish and black drum in 3-4 foot depths adjacent to shallow water I am sight casting these with jumbo dead shrimp. Trout have been tougher but catching some along Lydia Ann channel but my focus has been redfish the last few weeks.
Call Captain Chad to discuss trip options or availability at 361 463-6545
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.

10-2-2014: September 30th was the highest tide on record for the year, and the schools of redfish that were bunched-up, spread out in places they and we hadn't been in years. The big ones are here and the slot size reds are running with them. It's not uncommon to release 10 to 20 oversized reds each day, but on average we are catching 2 to 5 along with our keepers. We are making a pretty good run I. The morning, but it is well worth the time. This is the time to book your trip if its big bill reds that you are after.

10-2-2014: Hello To Everyone,  The last days of September proved to be interesting as far as the "Prime Time Red Fish Time". I have mentioned in previous Articles and Fishing Reports the last part of September through ThanksGiving is "catching" Redfish and usually your limits depending on the weather. Well, its been great fishing not phenomenal fishing until 9/29/14-Monday. Then, the pattern I am accustom to this time of year started and I mean started with absolutely silly catching every cast. Check out the pictures that accompany this report...the gentleman in black and the lady in blue...Steve and Becky. Becky wanted to make sure everyone knew she caught the biggest and her limit first. Well, I guess they'll debate that issue for a while huh? What fun and what memories that was!!! Nothing is guaranteed except death and taxes, but
please contact us and "lets go catch 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!
Please contact me and lets go "catch you some memories".

10-2-2014 - Hey There South Texas Giggers and Anglers!!!
Not a lot to talk about, September is that transition period for better things to come! We have only been out a handful of times with high winds, water and a lot of rain. But the high water pushed the flounder and LARGE sheepshead to the back of my favorite shoreline and we knocked them dead! with 19 flounder ,9 sheepshead, and 5 drum and a lot of these in the 20" plus range.  Needless to say my party of 4 was extremely pleased and everyone will be with the cooler temps of October. So lets go get some! 
Still have some good dates available and remember November is closed so now's the time to go!

THIS IS THE BEST TIME TO GO, so get ready and come get some.
 
May your fishing always be catching

 FLOUNDER GIGGING AT NIGHT IS FANTASTIC! 

10-2-2014: High Tides and Rain...Well, the gigging has remained fair overall with conditions of high tides and much needed rain. There has been high water up on the sand banks, where they are usually dry. When the water gets high the flounder have so many places to swim and hide. I have been gigging my flounder in reeds that run along the shores. There is a myth that some people believe, that a flounder will not swim through a thick patch of reeds to get up on the bank - but, somehow the flounder are able to swim through it. If you see a little strip of clearing in the reeds, that is where the flounder are going to be. There are a few flounder I am gigging in dead seagrass, that has been blown onto the bank. With the upcoming cool front arriving at the end of this week, it should start turning things around. A few flounder should start moving out of the back bays and lakes, to get ready for their migration out to the Gulf.  For a charter group of four, it has been taking us about five hours to gig our twenty-fish limit. The flounder are averaging about two and half pounds to five pounds. We are not seeing very many sheepshead and drum out, about two to five per night.
Available!   WEEKDAY TRIPS during October & December!

Hello Everybody,
Fall is in the air and I hope it stays. Red fish are in the flats and I hope they stay. Catching has been very good with boat limits common for the last seven days. the weather has been tolerable with just a few rain showers. Hopefully this will end soon. Trout are also being caught on Piggy perch and croaker. October should be fantastic red fish month as it normally only gets better and better.

We are finally getting some much needed rain!! Thank you Lord!
Limits of reds have been the norm for me last few days on the water thanks to the water levels dropping back to normal since the storms in the gulf. Black drum have been tough due to still being in little schools instead of the 50-100 fish schools. Once the water cools off some more they shud bunch back up somewhat making them easier to catch
The south zone dove season opens Sept 20. I srill have plenty of room for those of you that would like to get in on some south Texas doves. Give me a holler and we will get you lined up!
