Fishing Report

Freeport - Keeper sized redfish and speckled trout will be moving into the shallow flats along the south shoreline to feed and spawn in April. Working the grass shorelines with topwater lures is your best bet for cashing in on some excellent action. Also, this is the time for fly fishermen to try this area. The water temperature is perfect for these fish to move into the shallow waters and they will take any number of poppers or dry flies.

In order to get to Christmas Bay fish have to move through the great pass. San Luis Pass should give up some excellent catches of trout and reds to fishermen either wading the Galveston side flats or fishing the channel on the FreePort side of the bridge. And don't overlook Cold Pass for some superb speckled trout fishing and be on the lookout for flounder to start moving into the area during the latter part of the month.

Another are especially suited for fishermen without a boat is the SurfSide jetties. These rocks will be holding everything from trout and redfish to flounder and the occasional jack fish. Working baits close to the rocks is your best bet for consistent catches, but you better take along plenty of tackle because these rocks can take their toll of unwary fishermen.

MATAGORDA - East Matagorda bay should be turning on with some huge speckled trout. Broken-back lures and the famous Rebel Jumpin' Minnow are excellent for taking the trophy size fish that will be cruising the shallow flats feeding on schools of mullet. Wading the shoreline reefs and flats is the best way to approach these fish, but don't forget to drift the mid-bay reefs with shadtails for some excellent redfish and trout action.

Fly fishermen should also check out this shallow bay. The clear and shallow water is great for small poppers, streamers, and dry flies. A floating line is preferred because of the shallow depth, but a sinking tip may be preferred for areas around drop-offs.

ROCKPORT - This could be the best year for the Rockport area since the "Big Freeze". Speckled trout fishing should be excellent around Mud Island, Hog Island, and Estes on topwater plugs such as Cordell's Broken-back Redfin and Rebel's Jumpin' Minnow in early April. If that doesn't work try switching to soft plastic Cocahoe minnows later in the month. Cocahoes are used more than shrimptails, in this area, because they are a bit more buoyant and since most of the fishing is over shallow grass this makes a big difference. The fishing around the inside of the bays should be improving during this time since the fish will be moving out of the deeper water and onto the flats to feed. In these areas a live shrimp rigged under a popping cork will bring excellent results.

Fishing Lake Conroe

If you want to catch the Bass of a lifetime Try lake Conroe.

 Bass anglers can expect to take bass in shallow water, particularly around marinas and boat docks, in the early spring and mid- to late fall. In other seasons, bass are taken around deeper cover. Anglers are most successful with a variety of shad imitation lures or soft plastic baits. Hybrid striped bass are growing in popularity among Lake Conroe anglers and can be caught most any time of year. Most are taken by anglers trolling in open water areas or vertically jigging spoons or live shad. They are occasionally found running up the river channel during the early spring spawning run or foraging beneath schools of white bass in summer.

Water level is rising and this is making for greater access and better overall fishing.  At the Bass Pro Shops we have all the necessary gear to fish our local waters and have knowledgeable associates to help you pick the right gear.  Weather fishing the stumps or throwing the latest swim bait we have it all.

Winter Gulf Fishing

It’s not often that you go offshore fishing in the dead of winter, however it is Texas, and you just never know what the weather will bring.  They say if you don’t like the weather in Texas, just wait a little while, it will change.  This was to be my kid’s first offshore fishing trip and though we didn’t know what to expect, it really didn’t matter, it was about the experience. 

We had a window of opportunity to get in a quick trip offshore and run the boat a little and maybe get in some fishing, as seas were to be flat on Saturday and could not think of a better time to introduce my kids to the world of offshore fishing.  Though my son Taylor, 17, was all in, my Daughter Haley, 12, was a little hesitant to say the least and wanted all the details like how far and could we see land.  To my surprise, my son actually told her there was nothing to be scared of and encouraged her to go, as it was her choice if she went and to my delight, she would go.

After arriving in Freeport around 10:30, we met our good friend Kelly at the boat, where he had us gassed up and ready to go and in a matter of minutes we were pulling out of the marina.  With the temperature at 60 degree and the  kids very excited (not to mention what I was feeling inside), we headed out east/southeast to the first set of gas rigs we came to around 7 nautical miles south of the San Luis Pass.  The 26’ Mako Center Console had more than enough room for the four of us to drop our squid laden hooks down to the ocean floor to see what would bite.

Armed with on Offshore Angler Ocean Master spinning rod and reel combo, my daughter screams “I think I have a fish”.  She reels and reels and reels, then finally her first red snapper comes up from the ocean depths and the priceless smile on her face said it all.  We moved to another set of rigs about 24 nautical miles offshore where she caught another red snapper and 2 trigger fish.  It became apparent to Kelly and I that this trip was about the kids and the experience they were having and less about our fishing.  My son, desperate to not let his younger sister outdo him, found 2 red snapper in a row at the end of his 7’ Offshore Angler Ocean Master rod with a Shimano TLD15 mounted on it.  After taking pictures with our Kodak Playsport HD Video Camera, we headed back
