About Your Guide

Captain James offer Aransas Pass fishing charters and specializes in Rockport flounder gigging trips.

Captain James learned to fish as a boy after his dad and uncle taught him the ropes. His passion for fishing remains constant, and he enjoys nothing more than passing on his knowledge to the next angler. Captain James is a dedicated and hard-working fishing guide who puts his all into every trip.

Your trip with Captain James will begin from the famous Conn Brown Harbor. This area is home to more Flounder gigging guides than anywhere in the world and provides night after night of smiling faces and loads of fish. Nocturnal Assault will show you a great time gigging for Flounder, and you may even find some Sheepshead and Black Drum on the end of your gig!

Captain James runs a custom-built 18’ shallow-water boat specifically designed for Flounder gigging. It provides a dry ride with up-to-date engines and features.

That being said, it’s most coveted attribute is the custom lighting on the boat. Flounder bury themselves in sandy bottoms and camouflage, so the high-intensity lights that shine down make it easy to spot them!

Captain James and crew offers 5-hour night trips that can accommodate up to 6 anglers. They will provide all gigging equipment, and will clean your catch back at the docks. Gigging is done in 1-2 feet of water, in the cool of the night and under bright lights from the comfort of the boat, which means no Texas scorching sun!

Flounder gigging is very popular, and Captain James regularly books weekend evenings 6 months in advance. All ages are welcome to join the fun, no matter if you're a beginner or expert gigger, you will be in great hands!

James was awesome!! If you want to go flounder gigging this is your guy!! We had a great experience through lightning, thunder and rain!! He waited out the storm with us and took us back out after it passed. Took us to a few different spots to make sure we got our limit!! Took us awhile..from muddy water, to 3 different wind shifts, to us not exactly knowing how to jab one… but he never gave up!! Will definitely be back when we end up this way!! Thanks James!!
