    Redfish still have been taking the spotlight. Sand, grass, mud or shell it doesn't matter. Water temps are dropping at night and these fish are eating like crazy.

    Redfish and sharks have been great, trout fishing has been tougher lately.

    Lots of redfish still in our muddier lakes. We're still catching them 90+ degree, 2-3 ft water. Cracked crab and mullet is the bait of choice.

    Summer has officially started in Port O’ Connor. There are 3 major bay systems in Port O’Connor, west matagorda bay, Espiritu Bay, and San Antonio Bay. Each one has its own characteristics and each present a challenge on finding good fish. Espiritu Bay has been producing solid trout on top water baits in the early morning and plastics such as down south lures. The trout have moved from the mud from the back lakes and sloughs to the sand of the south shore lines and sand bars, as the day gets warmer they move from the flats to the deeper guts and then back to the flats as the evening arrives and the bait moves back onto the flats. The redfish have also been producing very well this summer and can be caught on top water and plastics as well. West matagorda bay has been on fire as of late and the trout have been in an abundance on the sandbars and flats. The bull reds have been epic this year in deeper waters from bird island all the way into the jetties early in the morning and have been caught on jigs. San Antonio Bay has been a little slower on producing fish but they are starting to turn on too. Each bay has oyster reefs, sand, and grass pockets which all present a different challenge on how to fish and be successful on getting a limit of trout and reds. As the we get into July and august the fish are going to move into deeper water to stay cool so we always have to be aware of water temperature and tidal movement. Also the months of July and august are great for going to the surf because we hardly get any wind in those months which keeps the surf calm and there are some big trout and reds that hang out on the gulf side of the barrier islands.
