7-16-2014:  Hello everybody. Catching fish has been steady for my clients with me . I did however have two trips back to back that were not so great. The other day I had asked my clients whom I have fished for 20 years now if he minded if we checked out a place that is off the beaten path . Go big or go home !!! We were either gonna be heroes or zeroes because it would take awhile to reach this location. He said lets go.. When we finally got to this fishing hole it was loaded and we had a blast. I have been going there everyday and it has been paying dividends ever since I took them . Thanks Mr. Douglas for letting me be your fishing guide for a long time now. Looking forward to seeing you on July 28th !!!
I ENJOY FISHING WITH KIDS. IT BRINGS BACK MEMORIES WHEN MY DAD TOOK ME FISHING AS A YOUNG BOY TOO...........

7-16-2014: Hello fellow fishermen. Fishing has remained steady with good numbers of trout being caught on live croaker on days with light winds. Dagger and Traylor island are holding fair amounts as well as the mid bay reefs in Aransas bay. Upper slot sized reds are in the deeper sand pockets in Redfish bay. Cut mullet, perch, and crab are the baits that they are preferring. Lots of black drum being taken on dead shrimp and Gulp lures in the back lakes of San Jose island with some good size to them. Don't forget the sunblock and drink plenty of water.
Call early to book your SUMMER VACATION FISHING TRIPS! 

It's gonna be a great season! 
Until next time, good luck and be safe out there on the water.

7-16-2014: Hello To Everyone, The wind has begun to calm down now and thank goodness for that.  It still blows hard some days, but all in all it has been good fishing
weather.  Question is why aren't you here going fishing with us?  As I have mentioned in previous Fishing Reports I have been going south of the JFK Bridge several miles and doing fairly well on Croakers for Trout.  The "bite" has been strange to say the least.  Instead of finding a spot and whacking 15 to 20 you'll hit one hear and one there, 2 hear and 2 there, and so on.  Sometimes you hit a monster, or two.  Please check out the photo accompanying this Report    I believe what has changed  the "catching" during the day was the full moon. Always know if you're going to be fishing during that phase.  On a bright night the fish eat all night and are not hungry, so plan accordingly.  Croakers for Trout and Menhaden for Reds. 
Please contact me and lets go "catch you some memories".
You can contact me via our website...www.tigernetfishguideservice.com, by our e-mail... tigernet@cableone.net or just pick up the phone and call!

I promise I'll give you 120%  of Pure Fishing Excitement so...

Let's Go Fishing!!!

7-16-2014: Fishing continues to be good between windstorms. Were trout fishing in Nueces Bay. It's full of shell reefs and mud and gets blown out easily but were getting our fish there wind permitting. Aransas Bay and the flats usually remain clear enough to fish but trout and reds here have been hard to find but were getting pretty good results fishing for reds with live croaker, cut shad, and cut skipjack. Were picking up some trout as well while fishing for reds. The wind is calming down now so I expect fishing to return to normal so let me hear from you.

7-16-2014: For a few days I thought the reds had disappeared but they just retreated to shallower water. Yea I do mean shallow, I've been catching them in 8-12" or less water. They haven't changed their appetite, they are still eating cut and live mullet and perch. I've found them off the end of the Klondike and up in Allyns Bite.

7-16-2014:  Hello Everybody,

The wind finally laid and trout fishing has been outstanding with boat limits early (30 to 40 trout) and quality trout mixed in up to 27 inches. The forecast is for the wind to pick starting tomorrow, Thursday the 17th. Hopefully for a short time! I have not red fished for sometime, but I am hearing some days great and then some days very tough. Regardless of weather, catching will be very good and the trout limit changes on September 1, 2014 thanks to the political pressure of CCA even though Parks and Wildlife data and statistics showed an improvement in the trout fishery. There are about six weeks of ten trout per person left so do not miss your chance to come to the Coast. You will not regret it and fun will be had by all.

We are still catching some nice box's of fish this week. We have been catching almost all are keeper's from large schools due to fishing pressure and low tide conditions they are schooled up. I would start out checking drop offs close to deeper water Dagger, Sunray, mud Island, and sailboat channel in redfish bay would be some great areas to start. Dead shrimp has been bait of choice while fishing the schools. Out of Corpus Christi if you start around bird inland work south drifting the west spoils will produce some nice trout. I have been getting them with soft plastics or throwing free lined croaker. Give me a call at 361 463-6545 to reserve your next business or family fishing trip.

July 18, 2014 - Hey There Flounder Gigging and Bay Fishing Enthusiasts!

Were catching limits of flounder every night, on the 8th of July a customer gigged a 6lb. 24-inch one at an undisclosed location It was the first one of the night. Quite a few places the water has become off colored, but when you hit clear water its game on, some of the bay guides are reporting flounder catches up on the flats , that's good news for all. Still have some openings this month so reserve your date, plan your trip and come experience the best of the Texas Coast!
Stay safe everyone and let's go catch some fish,

7-3-2014: Reflecting back on the last few days I recall myself thinking...what a whirlwind! The winds picked up and made us work hard, but all in all we still managed a decent box at the end of the day. Redfish and black drum have been in our local waters of Rockport as well as some good trout if your wading. Large numbers of trout have been further south. Either one you choose, I will try my best to put you on fish. High tides and high winds this week have made it a challenge for everyone. Hopefully soon we will get back to the normal winds that blow 10 to 15 mph and bring the good fishing with them! Remember, give me a call for your next fishing adventure!

 FLOUNDER GIGGING AT NIGHT IS FANTASTIC! 

7-16-2014: Low tides and light winds has made for some perfect conditions for flounder gigging. Capt. Dave and customers are having some incredible nights of gigging.
I have been running 2 trips, 2 different groups and both groups we are gigging our limit of 20 fish by 2-3am. The flounder seem to start showing up after the moon comes up. The flounder are a little bigger than what we usually see for this time of the year, all averaging 2-3 pounds. I have seen very few sheepshead and drum. When the tide starts to bottom out, that's when you need to start hitting the slough and guts. The water will clear up and the flounder will be laying down in the middle of the guts. I had the pleasure of taking Rodney & Lachell out 3 different times last week, and Rodney gigged himself a 7-pounder!  The rest of July is booked, I still have dates in August & September available. If you haven't booked your gigging trip yet, NOW is the time! 361-790-3271
*Just a few dates left in June & July, with more dates in August.
