8) Rockport Fishing Reports

"Trout are fair- soft plastics are starting to pick up and we're catching them on live shrimp on a popping cork- fish up to 25”.

Redfish good to excellent on shrimp, cut mullet, shad and soft plastics close to deeper water. Some fish are starting to move up on the flats when the sun comes out early! Pay attention to the minor and major feeding times!

Black drum are fair to good on dead shrimp. Water temps from 73 to 77 degrees. With the warmer temps fish are starting to be a little more consistent and aggressive. Another front on the way. Bad winds and lightning expected! Stay safe and tight lines!"-Captain Larry
