Summertime, Easy Gigging!
by Capt. David Dupnik - Flounder Gigging Guide




There's no better way to beat the summertime heat than enjoying a little nighttime flounder gigging. You can leave the sunscreen at home, but don't forget the bug spray! If you have never been flounder gigging, it is a MUST while you are vacationing in the Coastal Bend, or just a local wanting to see what the fuss is all about. Once you're out on the water at night and see the bays illuminated from the underwater lights of a flounder boat - you'll be hooked! The amount of marine life visible at night is stunning. You can see anything from alligator, crabs, flounder, sea turtles, pompano, stingrays, and everything in-between. I hope you will come aboard this summer and have an experience to remember for a long time to come.



Flounder gigging is done at night, and we depart the dock an hour before sunset. I do not have a time limit on my charters, we stay out until you gig a limit or y'all are ready to come in. I stay true to my slogan - "We Don't Give Up Until Sunrise!" Gigging during the summertime is probably my favorite time of the year to gig. You can go out and gig a limit of flounder without breaking a sweat or freezing your rear off! During the summer, there aren't as many boats out compared to the "fall flounder run." I also prefer going out later at night, I think the gigging is better then - just another perk of summertime gigging and daylight savings time!


Generally, during the summer we are gigging smaller flounder, but average size for the time of year. The flounder will range in size from 17 to 20 inches and 2 to 3 pounds. Because of the warmer water temperatures the flounder tend to show up later in the night as the water cools down. The Coastal Bend offers some of the best fishing opportunities around and there are fishing options for all levels of fisherman. You can enjoy kayaking, bird watching, bay fishing, deep sea fishing, flounder gigging, and much more - it's all right here! Don't forget to visit our beautiful beaches in Port Aransas, Rockport, or Corpus Christi. If you are coming to the Texas Gulf Coast for a summer vacation and have never been flounder gigging, make sure to give Capt. Dave a call and see what it's all about! Let's go make memories!



"This was our first flounder gigging trip we've ever been on. Capt David showed us what to do. Even though the water was dirty and wind was blowing David knew the bay/water like the back of his hand. And everyone on the boat got a limit. Definitely coming back next time I'm in town. Had a blast Thanks Capt, David"
- Cody Raesz, May 2017

"Had another great trip with Captain Dave last night, our grandsons and nephews made memories they'll cherish forever. Thanks Captain Dave. We highly recommend you!!!"
- Sue Mowry Goschinski, April 2017



"Wow, what an experience! Capt Dave is a true master of his craft. We will definitely be doing this again!"
- Travis Krug, April 2017
