"Jetty fishing has been on fire. This group went out 2 days this week" Captain Jason
"This was Tuesday catch, the wind was strong, we still caught a lot of fish by using shrimp on the bottom over shell. The water temperature was 66 degrees. The Galveston jetties still holding lots of sheep heads and a few redfish using shrimp. East bay is good for trout for the wade fishermen. The large gaftops catfish moving in from the gulf. Overall fishing is getting better. Stay safe"-Captain Mike
"Fishing is good for trout and reds on lures wading and out of the boat park."-Captain Ray

"Go west young man, Go east old man. That's the way of the winds making tough days on the lake. I am still managing to get fish and plenty of them in four hours. The fish are big, biggest this week 9.8 pounds, and several in that range. If the winds lay some I can get to other locations and get our box (cooler) loaded. I have not had a disappointing day, and thank the Lord for our catch. I am and will remain to troll, as it almost guarantees fish and I like big ones! I have spent at least an hour each trip just cleaning, filet, and bagging the catch! I like to fish four people at a time and keeps action going! Anyway good fishing and God Bless."-JD
"Jetty fishing has been on fire. This group went out 2 days this week"-Captain JR's
"Trout slow to fair on top waters and soft plastics it starting to pick up on live shrimp on a piping cork. Redfish good to excellent on shrimp, cut mullet and soft plastics. Black drum fair to good on dead shrimp. Water temps from 69 to 74 degrees. With the warmer temps fish are starting to be a little more consistent and aggressive. When you find them there are stacked in tight. Water has been stained to murky with the strong SE winds. We have a small front coming in on the 9th that shouldn’t bother anything. Fish the windy shorelines! Tight lines!"-Captain Larry
"We are still catching redfish around the drum boats using Plastics and cut bait. Also the jetties is still holding sheepshead using live shrimp."-Captain Walter
