"We found good success on Lake Austin this week by fishing the shallow, clear upper portions of the lake and sight fishing for bass cruising around rocks in the shallows. We found the best success with drop shot rigs."-Ander

"Haven't gotten to fish a lot this week. Had one Bluewater trip, a couple nearshore and several bay trip. Bluewater trip was an easy limit of Amberjacks. Nearshore still hot for shark, bull redfish and a few sheepshead. Bay fishing has been great for trout, redfish, flounder and sheepshead."-Captain Rodney
"It's been too windy for offshore but the inshore fishing has been producing nicely with live shrimp in the Galveston West Bay area and the Galveston ship channel and jetty area. A few big fish on cut Bait too although getting to some of the big fish spots have been tricky in these conditions."-Captain Mike

"Bull reds and sharks biting decent at Jettys."-Captain Jason
"Fishing is pretty good right now live bait."-Jakie
"Fishing is great. Mid morning best, although evening good too. Hard thing about it, most fish over 20 inches long when a customer can only take two over twenty inch a day. Therefore throwing fish back hoping a smaller fish hits so can get limit (10 fish per person). Few days left mid week all weekends about booked."-JD

"Trout fair on soft plastics and croaker to 25”. Redfish fair to good on live shrimp shad and soft plastics up on the flats and tight to the bank. Lots of fresh water coming out the drains. The reds will stay away for a few days. Find an area that is close to bigger water to stay clear of the fresh water. Black drum fair on dead shrimp, water temps from 76 to 80 degrees - with the warmer temps fish are starting to be a little more consistent and aggressive! With that said Rockport and surrounding areas have had 10 plus inches of rain. Have had high winds that made the water chocolate milk! High tides will push them tight but not around the feeder creeks. After the water settles down they will be hungry!! Tight lines everyone be safe out there this weekend!"-Captain Larry

"Here's one of my best clients w/ a nice size trout caught on live shrimp under a popping cork!"-Captain Allen
"Trout are still holding on drop offs redfish were actually over shell mid day."-Captain Michael

"Wade in fishing good on BWO nymphs below dragon fly jigs. BWO and caddis dry fly action at hatch. Drift boat fishing deep mornings with dragon fly nymph with leech trailer. At hatch, BWO dry with emerger trailer."-Chris
"The spring black drum bite remains consistent with fish ranging from 30lbs to 75lbs. An occasional striped bass ranging from 25lbs to 43lbs have been caught throughout the fleet. However, with water temps creeping up day by day those giant females will be making their way north. Spring seabass has recently opened as of May 15th. We've ran a few trips so far and it's been nothing but lights out fishing. Had an easy 7 man limit today within 2.5 hours."-Captain Mark
