Was trying to plan a trip for my dad's 60th. We have gone to Port A/ Rockport in the past.

We have previously gone down to the coast and hired a flounder gigging guide and had a friend take us red/trout/sheephead fishing. It has been a long time since we have been down there.

We have our own boat, a nautic star 244, we should be able to handle the bay, we are set up with lowrance gen 3 electronics as well.

Does anyone have a suggestion for a guide that more so teaches you how to fish, possibly goes on your own boat? Or suggestions on a guide in general.

Great flounder gigging guide in NightStalker Guide Service! partyon

As for advice, I would try to find some shell up north toward Mesquite Bay this time of year. I think with it being a little cooler this spring, you might have some better luck there since the mud holds the heat. That said, it could be a little spotty because of all the rain, which then fishing farther south toward Port A might be a better bet. Otherwise, farther toward Port A, I'd consider Shamrock, Super Flats, or around Mud Island. I think between those 3 spots, you probably will get on some fish at some point. Let us know how it goes!
