Welcome to GoFloundering.com
I invite you to come and enjoy an exciting night of guided flounder gigging in Port O'Connor TX. aboard the TANK - a 22' Floundering Machine. You will be safe, dry and comfortable while we guide the bay floor looking for flounder. While floundering you will also see other various species of fish, including; red fish, trout, drum, sheepshead,stingrays,crabs, and much more! I am a USCG licensed captain with over 10 years of flounder gigging experience. I will put forth every effort to ensure you have a fun and exciting experience while making memories on the water. Flounder gigging is done at night and involves stabbing/gigging the flounder while they are feeding along the shorelines. Sound too easy?? Well, it does take a trained eye as flounder have a camouflage pattern and will often bury themselves into the sand or mud making them a little more difficult to see. Not to worry, with a little guidance and patience you will get the hang of it. Whether you are a beginner just looking for a good time or an experienced angler, flounder gigging will be a unique experience that you will not soon forget.
Flounder Gigging Trip Info
Guided Floundering trips begin around sunset and will last between 4 to 6 hours depending on the nights conditions.You will need to bring a TPWD saltwater fishing license, proper clothing as the night air can be cool/damp, a cooler for your drinks/snacks and to take home your catch. (you are welcome to bring your favorite beverages but no glass please).
Everything else will be provided for you and your fish will be cleaned at the end of your trip.
You are allowed to keep 5 flounder per person, excluding the captain and you may also have the chance to gig other non game fish such as Black Drum and Sheepshead.
Flounder gigging has been impressive lately. The flounder are present in a variety of shorelines throughout the bays. Recent trips are yielding and average size of 16-17" with a few larger ones mixed in. As the water continues to warm up, so will the gigging action. The better months for gigging in this area are late February through December (with the exception of November)
Now is the time to book your trip as the calendar will fill quickly once the fishing buzz gets ahold of everyone.
I look forward to the season ahead and sharing my passion with new and returning clients. Flounder gigging is excellent and traditional way to enjoy the Texas coast at night.
