"These cold fronts keep coming, the fish keep getting unsettled because of all these fronts. One day they are in shallow water the next deep. The best bet is to go to the Galveston jetties and fish on the bottom near the rocks. When the tide is going out fish the channel side, when the tide is coming in fish the gulf side of the rocks. There still lots of pan fish at the jetties. Overall fishing is slow. Be safe."-Captain Mike

6) 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 good to excellent on shrimp,cut mullet,shad and soft plastics close to deeper water. Some fish starting to move up on the flats when the sun comes out early!pay attention to the minor and major feeding times! Black drum fair to good on dead shrimp. Water temps from 72 to 76 degrees - with the warmer temps fish are starting to be a little more consistent and aggressive. Well the front made it in last night and shut today (we’d) down. Was a tough slow day today. Guess that’s why they call it fishing not catching! Tight lines everyone be safe out there this weekend!"-Captain Larry
