This husband and wife team had the ulimate adventure. Last night the gigged flounder in Rockport with Rick Hammond of Night Stalker Guide Service. The Report was great, after sticking 4-5 nice flounder they started to become selective and put a handful of good size flounder in the boat. Getting off the water and back to their hotel, they had enough time to relax and catch a exciting Astros game.
Change of plans this morning, we were going to head to the rocks, but since the wife couldn’t make it we decided to wade. Tide is still up a bit, but the trout were still holding over knee to thigh deep sand pockets. Topwatersand Strawberry Wine was the bait of choice with Waterloo Rods, and Fins braid we saw trout action all day up to 23″. Had one school of redfish bust the surface in front of us, but turned the wrong way. With a little cooler weather coming and water temps dropping a bit, I know the bite will only get better!

First time in a long time I remember wet wading in March. The Spring pattern is definitely here. Fish were holding over knee deep sand pockets, finding the bait was key.
Topwaters, softdines, and DSL dirty tequila got the job done.
On top of a great day wading, these boys enjoyed an evening last night gigging limits of flounder with Rick Hammond, Nightstalker Guide Service.
Contact us today, and don’t miss out on an awesome adventure!

Trout fishing has been holding a solid pattern. Weather has not affected the bite to bad, we are still able to find fish each day, it is just a matter of timing. Over the last few trips it has been a mid-morning bite, lasting until about 1:30-1:45pm. Most of our wades have been concentrated over shell and mud in knee to thigh deep water, and even on the calm days the clean water has not seem to damper the bite. Our baits of choice have been lighter colored soft plastics and Corkys. With a pretty consistent weather pattern, I expect to see little change in the feeding pattern, although if we continue on this small warming trend the bite will become more aggressive.
