About Your Trip

Join Captain Pat on the flounder gigging trip of a lifetime! Captain Pat is offering 4 hour nighttime Flounder Gigging trips out of Port O'Connor, Texas for up to 5 anglers. Flounder fishermen often say that a slow night of gigging is better than a slow day of rod and reel fishing. Flounder gigging is a primitive yet exciting form of fishing where lights on the front of the boat illuminate the shallow bay floor to reveal the outline or the red eyes of the flounder below. You then use a forked spear - a flounder gig - to secure your catch! Try your hand at this awesome form of fishing that's sure to bring hours of entertainment. Enter your Date, Duration, Group Size, and Start Time above to Book Now with Captain Pat and Captain Experiences!

About Your Guide

Captain Pat Lester is the ultimate guide for all Texas outdoor activities. Growing up in the rice prairies west of Houston, he was exposed to fishing and hunting of all kinds of species from a young age. As an experienced migratory bird hunter and fisherman, Captain Pat will share stories and wisdom that will stay with you long after you leave his boat. Whether its gigging for flounder at night or cruising around the backwaters around Port O'Connor and Matagorda Bay, Captain Pat has you covered.

Pat was ready to go when we got there. Very personable. Boat well equipped. Rough weather conditions- wind was bad. Pat continued to work with us to put us on fish. Would definitely go again!
