Night Stalker - Flounder Gigging

A trip with Night Stalker Charters is a great way for people to get into Flounder gigging. Captain Rick has been a full-time flounder gigging guide since 2002, so you will be in more than capable hands! People of all ages are more than welcome aboard, and will soon find why this form of fishing is so addictive!

These trips run in the evenings, in just 2– 4 inches of water. Capt. Rick’s custom Flounder boat can deal with this with ease though. She has 150 HP engine and can reach speeds of 40 knots, which will have you on the fish in no time. This 26’ flat-bottom boat is fully equipped, air-motor, full underwater and above water lights. Coupled with Capt. Rick’s experience fishing this area, you will have your cooler full in no time.

Capt. Rick can have up to six people on board. To make sure anglers aren’t targeting the same Flounder, only one person can fish at once. Don’t worry though, there are plenty of seats onboard for you to relax. And even at the six-person capacity, with all the gear on board too, this great boat can still float in 4-5 inches of water! You’ll be able to get right on top of the Flounder, where all the lights will illuminate your path to your catch.

As well as Flounder, you are also likely to see Redfish, Mullet, Stingray, Blue Crab, Black Drum, Sheepshead, Speckled Trout and many more. They will be easy to see with the boat’s lights, as with the air-motor running they are unfazed and unaware of your presence! The flats really come to life at night.

Once you reach your limits of Flounder (five Flounder per person) Capt. Rick is happy to fillet your catch for you. You just have to decide how you will cook it.

All that’s left to do is grab your license, any snacks for the trip, and plenty of water, and come join Night Stalker Charters for a great Flounder gigging experience!

"I have been a full time flounder gigging and fishing guide here in Rockport TX for 16 years. I am family friendly and love to teach kids how to spot and gig flounder." Captain Rick loves having different groups on board his boat, and teaching them the tricks of the trade! All ages are welcome! He looks forward to seeing you soon.

Captain Rick doesn’t give up and can spot a flounder like he has eyes in the back of his head.
