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 15 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.
Enjoying all the bay has to offer here in Port O’Connor.
Flounder gigging at night, wade fishing for trout and reds, and boat fishing for big reds and sharks are all producing very well right now.
This past weekend we teamed up with Capt. Brandon Kendrick , Capt. Will Granberry, and Capt. Dustin Rabenaldt for a 3 night, 2 day corporate event. Big smiles and full boxes as we took care of this large group. It’s nice to work together with other guides and take on a big job with so many guest. Thank you guys for the great effort. I’m sure we will doing more of these in the future.
Flounder gigging the past several nights since has remained excellent. Cooler temps and calm winds have been a blessing. The average size has started to increase to around 17-18” with a handful going 20-21” mixed in.
Plenty of open dates left to fill this summer
