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

Hello eveyone and thanks for reading my fishing / duck hunting report. I just had the pleasure of doing a cast & blast with the Hugenburg party. We started the morning off with some duck hunting . The wind was a little to light to encourage the ducks to fly but we had some action the whole hunt and wound up with 3 Pintails , 1 blue bill and 5 redheads . That is not to shabby for lack of wind . We sat in the blind after picking up the decoys and had a soda and to poke fun at each other for missing the give me birds and knocking down a bird that was in my opinion un hittable. Then we loaded up and did some fishing with soft plastics and some mullet for redfish. We managed 6 redfish and oh yeah a few bonus black drum on fish bites as well as shrimp. After completing our cast & blast excursion we headed to the dock to clean our catch and kill ; sat around for a few minutes and laughed and then they said see you next year and we went home. Thanks so much guys
for another great time on the water. Life is way to short to waste it !!!

11-26-2014: Hello To Everyone,  It is a little hard to believe it's almost ThanksGiving, but it is here!!! This Report is really pretty simple. We have been Fishing and we have been Duck Hunting. Fishing is good when the weather breaks and the wind it is not howling. Duck Hunting is good when it's not foggy. There's not much of a middle ground. As far as fishing use popping corks and shrimp. As far as Duck Hunting hopefully its cold, not foggy, and you're in the right Blind. Please watch the weather and plan your trips accordingly. One thing is for sure you're more than likely not going to catch a fish sitting in the recliner and you're not going to bag a duck watching TV...even though I have seen some elaborate Duck Blinds. Again, please contact us for available dates...Fishing, Duck Hunting, or Cast and Blast. "Lets go catch and bag you some memories"!
Contact me if you're interested in wading for Reds and Blacks.

On another note "Prime 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".
You can also contact me via our website...www.tigernetfishguideservice.com, or by e-mail... tigernet@cableone.net,

11-26-2014 - Hey There South Texas Giggers and Anglers!!!
Nothing new to report, I haven't wet a hook or a gig since the 30th of last month, of course I would , but my phones been pretty dead this month. Hopefully that will change this last week of November, still have some good dates available. One thing I've heard from some other guides is that the flounder are thick at the shrimp boat, Lydia Ann and ship channel at port a and their hitting anything you throw at them, as long as the tide is moving one direction or the other. With incoming tide being the most productive , best bait, finger mullet or mud minnows, take your pick. Gigging season opens in one week , I have the boat tore down right now , rebuilding the alternator , replacing the belt , building new gig heads, then its time to rock n roll on the first.

MAKE YOUR RESERVATION NOW!  PLENTY OF GOOD DATES STILL AVAILABLE THRU DECEMBER!

May your fishing always be catching,

 FLOUNDER GIGGING AT NIGHT IS FANTASTIC! 

11-26-2014: Well, Texas Giggers it's time to get back in the saddle.  I have enjoyed being able to take some time off and spend it with the family. I also splurged and re-powered my boat with a brand new Mercury 115 Pro XS 2015.  I've been hearing lots of good reports on the flounder this month. Everyone I have spoken with has talked about all the flounder they have been catching on rod and reel. The warming temperature has slowed down the flounder dramatically on their migration to the Gulf, which is a good thing for the giggers.  Remember, the first two weeks you will only be allowed two flounder by gig. I still have confidence that we will be gigging flounder all the way through the end of January. I will be booking double trips for December/January, for those that would like to go late. I can also do last-minute trips as well. Just give Capt. Dave a call 361-790-3271.  I'm ready to gig some big flounder!
May you all enjoy family & feasts in the upcoming weeks, and have a Happy Holiday Season!

11-26-2014:  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?

 

Update: 11-26-2014

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.

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.

 

 

 

11-26-2014: Were catching redfish on the flats between cold fronts. The water temperature is around 53 degrees so there are not many trout on the flats. Frozen shad is working ok for the reds. If you can find live pin perch that would be better. There are trout in the deeper channels but most of them are throwbacks. The pin perch are still plentiful so fishing with shrimp is not paying off as well as soft palstic lures. Estes Flats is holding some nice reds in the sand holes. Fishing is good in December so book yourself a trip and come on down here.

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

11-26-14:  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.

Active Military Always Receive 10% Discount!  Families with Children Always Welcome! 11-26-2014: 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.  Give me a call to reserve your day or with any questions at 361 463-6545!
