Join Captain Pat Lester 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 fisherman 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 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.
