April 2014 Texas Deep Sea Fishing Report

Well the beginning of the month started out a bit slow, but as the water temps warmed so did the fishing. Recent trips (4-26), the blue green water moved in along with the seaweed. This brought in a bunch of new fish, including cobia, king fish, sharks, Jacks, and bull reds. All of our boats had a great day that saturday, with limits of kings, and a 40lbs cobia. The fish continue to move in, now that the water is warm.

The bay fishing is good as well, with trout, reds, and flounder, being caught. Spring is here!

March 7-2014 Spring Break Report

Spring break is upon us, the weather hasnt been the greatest, but we have managed to get out on some of the nicer weather windows. The Gulf fishing continues to be good for bull reds, trigger fish, and drum around the platforms. As the water warms they will be moving in. Fishing nearshore around the jetties and in the river has been good for flounder, shreep head, redfish, drum and trout. On 3-6 we had limits of nice flounder with a few trout, reds, and sheephead mixed in. We do still have boats available for inshore or gulf fishing for the Texas spring break weeks.

Finally we get a break in the weather. We were able to get out in the gulf fishing around some rigs. Had a great day catching lots of Big bull reds, and black drum.. This was our main catch of the day.. Its pretty typical as these fish seek deeper water for the winter months. They will be moving inshore near the beach front as the water temps rise. Spring is almost here with the warming temps bring in different species of fish each week. We are booking for the spring break weeks soon to come. Whether bay fishing or gulf fishing there should be some fish to catch. Give us a call and we can hook you up..

Sept. 2013

September is a great month to fish, we look forward to a few cool fronts bring the water temps down a bit. Once this happens the fishing turns on. From inshore bay fishing to out in the gulf, the fish start to gather up into schools and start feeding big time. The Bull Reds do there anuall run during sept- nov. Its not uncommon to go out and catch 20-40 of these brutes in just a few hours. Talk about wearing your arms out. On the same trip, we get Black tip sharks, occasional tarpon, jacks, kings, spanish mackeral. The bay fishing is also on at this time, we have had some recent trips with limits of slot red fish, flounder, trout, and mangrove snapper. Getting into october is some of our best fishing months of the year. Red Snapper season will open oct. 1-14. We will be doing combo trips for snapper then running inshore for the closer action on big fish.

June-August 2013

What a great few months these were. Snapper season was from june 1st – 28th. We had some great trips out in the gulf, some really nice red snapper in 10-20lb class. Most trips got easy limits of red snapper, with some mangrove snapper mixed in. Once our limits were filled, off to looking for kings, lings, sharks, bull reds. We had a great summer of bull red action, we did a lot of combo trips going out deep and hitting the bulls on the way in. It looks like the red snapper season will re-open on oct. 1st 2013. Just a few months away.

Feb 2013

It seemed like spring was here early this year, the first part of the month included days in the mid 70s, the fish turned very active in the bays and out in the gulf. On our back bay fishing trips, we have been pulling in some decent trout and red fish throwing artificials drifting the mid bay reefs. We have also been doing a few trips on the windy days around the jetty rocks throwing live shrimp, catching a pretty good variety, of redfish, trout, sheepshead, drum, mangrove snapper, ect..

Out on the gulf we have been running a little further than our typical beach front fishing getting out to around 60 ft. The Big Bull Reds have been holding near structure out here along with quite a few 3-4 ft sharks, and plenty of catch and release snapper, and other sorts of reef fish in the mix.

Spring is very near, we are booking for the March spring break season now. We are also offering a couple of spring break specials including a coupon code for the month of March. Please call to get the code.

Oct. 1st 2012

Its Bull Redfish season ! the Bull reds have been running the past few weeks. Most trips averaging 15-40 of these fish in the 15-30 lb range. On the same trip we have been catching some nice black tip sharks, kings, spanish mackerel. One good thing about this type of trip is that we dont have to run far, usually out to 10 miles max, so most of the time is spent fishing instead of traveling. Its only gonna get better the water temps are starting to fall into the mid 70s which really turn the fish on. These next 4-6 weeks will be some great fall fishing.

June-August 2012 Texas Deep Sea Report

I know this is quite a span of reports. We have been very busy having charters almost everyday. The Red snapper season started out in june, with some great catches of big fish. Most trips average fish was 10-20 lbs with quick limits. On the windy days we managed keepers 3-8 lbs. Once we finished our snapper off to looking for other species, kings, sharks, mahi, ling ect.. The kings were the easiest to find. After red snapper season ended, which was on july 16th. We have been targeting kings, red fish, ling, mahi, sharks ect.. There was a period during the middle of July that our boats were bringing in limits of slot red fish, along with limits of kings, sharks, and the occasional ling. The red fish you have to stay within state waters. We were able to find them on the way in on some close to shore spots. It was amazing never seen this many red fish during the middle of the summer out in the gulf, must have been from all the rain, pushed them out.
Currently August we are fishing for kings, sharks, ling, mahi, spanish macks as well. This is on our regular priced trips 8hr-10 hrs. We have also made a few trips out to deep water (12hr) looking for tuna, mahi, ling, amberjack. This is a specialty trip we offer leaving earlier returning later. You have to call and ask about it the pricing is a little more $. Not to mention the sea conditions have to be perfect to be able to make a long 60-70 mile run.
Also ahead for the August/ sept season, Big Tarpon will be a target soon, these big fish run up and down the beach front. Fishing for them you catch big sharks , kings, as well. The bull reds usually start running towards the end of august into sept – Nov. We love fishing the fall season, lots of action on big fish very close to shore, not to mention cooler temps !

May 21, 2012 Texas Deep Sea Fishing

The weather the past couple of weeks has been outstanding! The gulf water 3-10 miles has been blue green. Recent trips have been catching lots of king fish and sharks within sight of land. The sharks have been thick especially. Bull reds are also still around along with the occasional cobia. Our bay fishing trips around the jetties and beach front have been excellent for big trout, reds and a few flounder. This time of year we catch a lot of really nice trophy sized speckled trout. Red snapper season is fixing to be upon us, just a couple of weeks away. Looks like the season will be june 1st- july 10.

April 30, 2012 Gulf and Jetty Report

Seems like the last few saturdays were welcomed with some major wind. It sure made the gulf bumpy making it a little hard on our customers. We still managed to get our trips done, despite the winds we have still been doing well on bull reds, and sharks. The black tip sharks have moved in. They have been getting bigger with each trip. Some recent trips have even brought in a few Cobia while bull red fishing, they are making there run at this time. May is always a good month for Cobia here on the Texas coast. As the wind did keep some of our trips limited to inshore there have been quite a few nice trout and flounder brought in. As far as red snapper season goes, looks like it will start June 1st and go through early July, we are still wating on the final closing date. Days are going fast for June, if you are wanting Red Snapper better get on the books soon!

July and August are some of our prime months to fish here on the Texas Gulf Coast. Red Snapper season ended on July 18, which came very short. We had some great trips with our red snappers averaging 10-15 lbs on the days we were able to make 30 plus miles. Most trips got their limit within an hour and we were off looking for other species such as, king, ling, dorado, and sharks. During August we have been hitting the short rigs and shrimp boats getting plenty of kings, sharks, a few ling and dorado as well. As Sept approaches we will have a mix of Bull Reds as well.. This fishing will go on through early November. Cant wait for some of those cool October mornings! October is one of my favorite months to fish, with spring like conditions and some great warm water fishing.. They may even reopen the red snapper season for October.. still waiting on an update.
