5) Lake Texoma Fishing Reports

"Seems things picking up as far as fishing. Although recent rains and storms, water coming into lake red and stained, thereby visibility of water will be a factor for a short period. We are catching a limit one day, and tough next day. That's fishing. Noticed yesterday evening, small fish surfacing near water intake, so fish are just coming out of Spring Spawn, and moving to favorable climate for them to have temp water they prefer. I am trolling and catching big fish, range 7-8 to 15 pounders occasionally."-JD

7) Rockport Fishing Reports

"Trout fair to slow soft plastics it starting to pick up on live shrimp on a popping cork up to 25”. Redfish fair to good on live shrimp shad and soft plastics up on the flats and tight to the bank. Look for a contour change! Black drum fair on dead shrimp, water temps from 74 to 80 degrees - with the warmer temps fish are starting to be a little more consistent and aggressive. Had another front come in with NE winds so look around the corner for your fish - they will still be in the area. One thing I have noticed is that the bait has been moving around. So find the bait!! Will be an interesting next couple days! Tight lines everyone be safe out there this weekend!"-Captain Larry
