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

Fishing Adventure


Fish 1When it comes to offshore fishing, nothing compares to beautiful summer day, calm seas, and a great friend (with a boat). After receiving the call that we would be heading out offshore fishing, I naturally went to Bass Pro Shops to gear up; as they have everything you need for your fishing adventure. Hardly sleeping the night before, I headed for Freeport Texas around 3:30am, arriving at 5am, my friend Kelly already had the boat rigged and ready to go. We pulled out of Bridge Harbor Marina at 5:30am with the Mako 26’ Center Console and 100 gallons of fuel, along with all of the equipment necessary to make a voyage of this kind.

 

We were heading out around 55 miles with the GPS coordinates to an area where severalFish 2 Marlin were caught the week before, but counting on some Wahoo, King fish, and Dorado. After some choppy seas for the first 10 miles, we eventually came upon a large weed line about 40 miles out that we could not pass up trolling. After 20 minutes of trolling a Boone Bird rig, the much anticipated words came from my friend’s mouth, “Fish on” which it was. Kelly, in his unselfish manor, handed me the rod and said “you’re up”, as he stopped the boat to assess what we had. At that moment, the reality of a life long dream that was surely never to pass, a Sailfish launched from the cobalt blue depths of the Gulf of Mexico and into the sky, leaving us both in disbelief. With Kelly working the boat and myself armed with a Penn 650 reel mounted on an Offshore Angler Power Stick, the chase was on. After bringing the Sailfish in twice only to have him spool out everything I had gained, we brought him along side the boat 45 minutes later.

 

Fish 3Still shocked that we landed a 6’sailfish on a medium weight spinning rod, we grabbed a camera and took as many pictures as we could to go along with the images engraved in our minds.  After 10 minutes of reviving the worn out Billfish, we released him into the deep blue sea, as I rest my weary arms.  Many hours of fishing later, our fishing experience of a lifetime ended with 6 Mahi Mahi, 1 Kingfish, 1 Ling, 3 Amberjack, 1 Triggerfish, and a Sailfish. As we headed back to the marina, with the help of our Etrex handheld GPS unit, we reflected on the day’s events and how this experience would forever change my life, as I had indeed landed a fish that most people dream of.

 

Fish 3As we headed back and reflected on the experience I did not want the day to end. With the boat and equipment cleaned, I thought of what to say to my friend, who made this dream come true, and all I could say is thank you. Kelly is a great fishing guide and more importantly, someone I am proud to call my friend. Thank you Kelly.

If you would like to hear more about this incredible trip stop by the Bass Pro Shops in Katy, Texas and ask for Kevin.

Texas Goose Hunting

Goose and dogNothing compares to Goose hunting with family and friends.   A quick and final stop to the Bass Pro Shops in Katy, Texas was all it took to complete our equipment needs. They simply have everything.

We then headed out to Eagle Lake, Texas to hunt the flooded fields and do some shooting over 500 Rags. This was our attempt to lour in geese as they made their way off the water into the fields to feed. Calling Snows is an art, some say not as productive on Snows as Canadians. I happen to agree that weary Snows are less likely to be fooled by even the most seasoned callers.   It was great to have my youngest son along on this trip; we are doing our best to pass our hunting heritage to the next generation.Jesse

The Geese did not cooperate as well as we would have liked but we did manage to take a few. Enough for a very large pot of Goose Gumbo, but that is another story.

Having my dad on this trip made this a very special hunt; this was a time that we were all healthy and able to participate in the grandeur of the outdoors and the fellowship that always accompanies these adventures.

If you really want to get to know someone take all the distractions away TV, Radios, Computers and Cell phones create barriers. When they are eliminated it is not long before the fun begins and the experiences start to be revealed.canada2

Setting up the spread and taking it down is always the work of hunting in Texas but when you have the right family and friends it just seems to go faster.

As we traveled back home we quietly spoke of the time we had shared accounting for the shots made and the ones missed, we all secretly wished these times would never end.

This year grab you family and friends plan a trip to Texas, to hunt the plentiful Snow Goose you may even bag a few Canadians and that is a real treat.
