The Rusty Gig

Tiki Island
Tiki Island TX, United States

If you haven’t tried Flounder gigging, you haven’t been to Texas. Captain Travis Rust of The Rusty Gig Charters will show you the ropes of this unique and rewarding sport, supplying everything you need for a great gigging experience.

Your trip will take place aboard a fully rigged 18 ft Boatright boat that is powered by a new 90 HP Evinrude E-TEC engine. This will power you and up to two others to the bay and marshes quickly and reliably, where you will find Flounder feeding during the night. The boat is also fitted with a 13 HP Honda air motor that allows the boat to travel smoothly through the shallow water to the best Flounder gigging spots. Despite the fact that you will be fishing at night, visibility will not be an issue: the boat features PlashLights© LED Flounder lights that will light up the waters beneath you and allow you to spot your target and plan your strike.

These trips are great fun for everyone on board, regardless of their age and previous gigging experience. Just make sure to bring a valid Texas saltwater fishing license and an ice box to bring your delicious catch home with you.
