Summertime, Easy Gigging!
David Dupnik - Flounder Gigging Guide
SURRENDER AT SUNRISE
VISIT CAPT. DAVID ONLINE NOW!
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!
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,
