Texas Fishing Reports

1) Aransas Pass Fishing Reports

"Trout continue to be good out front on trailer island, hard packed sand and grass is the structure you need to fish. Find guts and cuts - with grass - fish edges using top water, Down south lures in super model and burner shad - dark flavors have been the best. If you don't need em release em. Reds have been scattered - mud, grass and potholes have been the tickets for them. South bay has been hot - top water action has been great. Rig your super model Down south up weedless to combat the grass - continue to incorporate the major and minors in your fishing day to increase your opportunity to catch fish."-Captain Larry

4) Falcon Lake Fishing Reports

Catfish are biting hard! Stay with live and prepared baits to reel these guys in. Black bass hang around the deep drops, brush, rocks, and covered areas in water depths 15-20 feet. They're good on deep crank baits and thick worms.
