We’ve been busy behind the scenes and haven’t had a chance to continue with our blogs lately. This week we made sure to set aside time to talk with you guys about what’s to come here at Outrigger Outdoors as well as the start of the beloved Fall season.  This weekend (Saturday, September 22, 2018) marked the official first day of Fall. Not only does Fall mark the opening of hunting seasons, it also marks the prime time for flounder gigging.  The Fall flounder run is the most opportune time all year for fishermen to catch or gig flounder.

Flounder gigging and bowfishing have progressed exponentially over the past 50 years. However, it has been around for a much longer time period. The Karankawa Native American people are among the first on record to gig flounder. They settled the Texas Gulf Coast from the early 15th century through the 17th century. They commonly used torches fueled by slatherings of tar and oil from natural seeps as lights and sharpened cane stalks as spear/gigs in their floundering. Bowfishing is believed to have been around even longer, dating back to the times of ancient groups of people such as the Aztecs, Inuits, and Aborigines successfully shooting fish with their bows.

Enjoying the outdoors is one of many freedoms the angels in camo defend.  This week we managed to make our way to the creek to sling some arrows at common carp and spotted gar. We used minimal resources to reel in our fair share of carp and gar, without even having to pay for gas in the boat.

  If you're an avid bowhunter, the spring and summer months can be excruciating. Flinging carbon at foam in preparation for a season that remains months away can get downright dull. Fishing helps scratch the outdoor itch, but nothing compares to shooting your bow. That was my attitude until I discovered bowfishing, which quickly became my passion and now summers don't last nearly long enough. The rivers and creeks became my home away from home, and somehow the late night spotlighting trips started competing with slinging arrows from the river bank.  I encountered innumerable surprises along the way—many of which I...
