CURRENT FLOUNDER GIGGING REPORT: OCTOBER 2017
September was quite the month. Hurricane Harvey scared a lot of tourist away even though fishing was great and the beach was still there. Many people missed out on taking advantage of the little to no crowds here in the Coastal Bend.
So here is what to expect for October: Many more of your favorite hotels will reopen along with restaurants if they are not already open AND fishing will continue to be great! My advise to anyone that is tossing around the idea of coming down to fish is – Come On! Here before long we will be packed-up again with tourist. I would take advantage of this time. Less tourist = less people fishing = better fishing for you. Make sure to look at your fishing guide’s Facebook page for updates and recent reports. Some guides have only been out 1 time in the last month and others not at all, but we’re all trying to get back to what we love asap.
Hurricane Harvey has really changed the location of fish and their patterns, so when choosing a guide make sure they have been staying on top of things. The flounder we have been seeing are good size with a few 20-inchers….PLUS as an added bonus, we’re seeing a lot more sheepshead which are great for gigging too – just like flounder!!
Now for the bad news…. October is the last month for Flounder Gigging due to Texas law which states “no flounder fishing/gigging in the month of November. But no worries – flounder season reopens on December 1st.
So don’t wait. Go ahead and book that fun flounder gigging trip you have been looking forward to and let’s go get us some!! Call to Reserve: 361-222-6007
