trip description for Aransas Pass Inshore Slam in Aransas Pass

Climb aboard with Captain Kevin for an action-packed day of bay fishing the Coastal Bend out of Aransas Pass! Captain Kevin usually runs his half day trips from 7am - 11am but if the bite is slow, he will often stay out an extra hour to make sure you get on the fish. His full day trips usually run from 7am to 2-3pm which give you more time to hit both sides of the tide and find where the fish are biting best. But, Captain Kevin has years of experience under his belt and will take you where the bite is hottest. You can expect to target Flounder, Redfish, and Speckled Trout. Captain Kevin likes to use live bait, cut bait, and, on some occasions, lures to attract the best and biggest fish. If wade fishing is your preferred angling method, he will gladly take you out, you just need to provide your own waders and wading boots. For these trips, Captain Kevin likes to use a 23’ Haynie Bigfoot bay boat that provides a wide, spacious, and stable deck that will serve as your fishing platform. Captain Kevin likes to run these trips with two guests so that he can provide superior service so you both catch your limit or next personal best! Captain Kevin will provide everything you need for a productive day on the water, except a fishing license, which you’ll need to bring with you. He will have an icebox for your day’s catch as well as rods, reels, bait, and tackle. Come on down and make some memories with Captain Kevin and explore the secluded waters around Aransas Pass!

What is flounder fishing in Aransas Pass all about?

Flounder, with their unique appearance and delectable flavor, are a prized catch for anglers exploring the waters of Aransas Pass. These flatfish, known for their ability to camouflage themselves against sandy bottoms, channels, and structure, offer an exciting challenge for those seeking a rewarding fishing experience. In Aransas Pass, flounder can be found lurking near oyster reefs, marsh edges, and around docks, where they lie in wait to ambush passing prey. Anglers often target flounder by drifting with live bait or casting artificial lures along these likely feeding areas, employing tactics that require patience and precision.

One of the unique aspects of flounder fishing in Aransas Pass is the opportunity to target both legal-sized fish for the table and trophy-sized specimens for sport. While slot-sized flounder are plentiful and provide a delicious meal, it's not uncommon for anglers to encounter larger specimens that exceed legal limits and offer a hefty challenge. These larger flounder, often referred to as "doormats" due to their size, can provide an adrenaline-pumping fight as they put anglers' skills and tackle to the test. Whether targeting flounder for the table or the thrill of the catch, Aransas Pass offers ample opportunities to hook into these prized flatfish.

Flounder fishing in Aransas Pass is not only a popular pastime for anglers but also plays a crucial role in the local ecosystem. As an important predator in the estuarine food chain, flounder help regulate populations of smaller fish and crustaceans, contributing to the overall health and balance of the ecosystem. Additionally, flounder provide recreational enjoyment for anglers and economic benefits for the local community through tourism and fishing-related industries. Whether casting from the shoreline, drifting along channels, or exploring the diverse habitat of Aransas Pass, anglers can find plenty of excitement and adventure while pursuing the elusive and delicious flounder.

What are the most popular months to fish for flounder fishing in Aransas Pass ?

In Aransas Pass, flounder seasons are marked by shifts in water temperature, tides, and fish behavior, offering anglers a dynamic and varied fishing experience throughout the year. Spring signals the beginning of prime flounder season as these flatfish emerge from their winter haunts and become more active in the warming waters. During this time, anglers can find flounder congregating near oyster reefs, marsh edges, and along sandy channels, where they lie in wait to ambush passing prey. Spring offers anglers ample opportunities to target flounder using a variety of techniques, including drifting with live bait or casting artificial lures along likely feeding areas.

As summer settles in and temperatures rise, flounder fishing in Aransas Pass continues to thrive, albeit with some adjustments in tactics. Anglers may find flounder seeking refuge in deeper channels or around structure during the heat of the day, where the water remains cooler and more oxygenated. Early mornings and late evenings often provide the best opportunities to target flounder, as they become more active during the cooler parts of the day. Anglers targeting flounder during the summer months can employ a variety of techniques, including drifting with live bait or casting artificial lures along marsh edges and channel edges.

Fall heralds the return of peak flounder season in Aransas Pass as cooling temperatures trigger a surge in feeding activity. Flounder become more aggressive as they prepare for the approaching winter months, gorging themselves on baitfish and building up their energy reserves. This period, typically from September to November, offers some of the year's best angling opportunities as flounder congregate in large numbers along marsh edges, sandy bottoms, and around structure. Anglers targeting flounder during the fall season can expect fast-paced action and the chance to hook into trophy-sized specimens as these fish feed voraciously in preparation for the winter ahead.

What techniques are popular for catching flounder in Aransas Pass?

Flounder fishing in Aransas Pass presents anglers with a variety of effective techniques to pursue these elusive flatfish. One popular method is drifting with live bait, such as mud minnows, mullet, or shrimp, along sandy channels, marsh edges, and oyster reefs. Anglers use a Carolina rig or a simple bottom rig to present the bait near the bottom, allowing it to drift naturally with the current. This technique is particularly effective when targeting flounder as they lie in wait to ambush passing prey, providing anglers with the opportunity to hook into these prized fish as they feed along the bottom.

Another effective technique for targeting flounder in Aransas Pass is casting artificial lures, such as soft plastics or jig heads, along likely feeding areas. Anglers can work these lures along marsh edges, oyster reefs, or sandy bottoms, using a slow, steady retrieve or a twitch-and-pause action to mimic the movements of injured baitfish. This method allows anglers to cover a large area and search for actively feeding flounder, providing an exciting and rewarding experience on the water.

For those seeking a more hands-on approach, wade fishing presents an immersive experience in the shallow waters of Aransas Pass. Anglers armed with lightweight tackle can wade along sandy flats, casting live bait or artificial lures into likely feeding areas as they search for flounder. This method offers anglers the opportunity to get up close and personal with their quarry, providing a sense of connection to the natural environment and the thrill of hooking into a trophy-sized flounder. Whether drifting with live bait, casting artificial lures, or wading the flats, anglers in Aransas Pass have a wealth of options when it comes to targeting flounder, ensuring an exciting and rewarding fishing experience on the water.

What other species are popular in Aransas Pass?

While flounder may be a prized catch in Aransas Pass, the waters surrounding this coastal haven offer a plethora of other species to target, ensuring anglers have a diverse and exciting fishing experience. One notable species is the redfish, also known as red drum, which thrives in the shallow bays, marshes, and channels of Aransas Pass. These hard-fighting fish are known for their powerful runs and are often found tailing in the shallows or cruising along grassy flats. Anglers targeting redfish in Aransas Pass commonly use live bait such as shrimp or mullet, as well as artificial lures like spoons or soft plastics, to entice strikes from these prized game fish.

Speckled trout, another popular species in Aransas Pass, are abundant in the shallow bays, estuaries, and grass flats throughout the area. These beautiful fish, also known as spotted seatrout, provide exciting angling opportunities year-round, particularly during the spring and fall migrations. Anglers targeting speckled trout often use artificial lures such as soft plastics or topwater plugs, as well as live bait like shrimp or mullet, to entice strikes from these elusive predators. Whether casting from the shoreline or drifting along channels, the thrill of hooking into a trophy-sized speckled trout is an experience cherished by many anglers who visit Aransas Pass.

Additionally, Aransas Pass offers opportunities to target a variety of other species, including black drum, sheepshead, and mangrove snapper, among others. Black drum, often found in deeper channels and around structure, provide a hefty challenge for anglers and are prized for their firm, flavorful flesh. Sheepshead, with their distinctive black stripes and prominent teeth, are commonly found around docks, pilings, and other structure, where they feed on crustaceans and mollusks. Mangrove snapper, meanwhile, inhabit mangrove-lined shorelines and are prized for their delicious white meat. Whether targeting flounder or exploring the diverse array of other species in Aransas Pass, anglers are sure to find plenty of excitement and adventure on the water.

    Fishing with Ben was amazing and just what we were looking for. My wife and I took my 83 year old father out for a morning and Ben had us catching fish as soon as the bait hit the water. We only kept what we were going to eat so we threw a lot back (not to mention the ones that we missed). For an enjoyable time catching fish I recommend going out with him and ask about taking the airboat.
