 I hope all of you had a happy Easter and great Spring Break. Even though the weather didn't cooperate too well with us as far as fishing is concerned, we still had some great trips & we had lots of fun. Galveston Bay fishing can be a bit inconsistent for bay outings during the Spring time. This is because the wind & rain seem to be a weekly occurrence. Like I always say in my Galveston Bay fishing reports, "Give us good weather & we can give you good fishing!" Now we still had some great trips, especially at the jetties. The north & south jetties have been producing limits of sheephead, redfish & drum. The jetties can be a great alternative this time of the year. As the weather settles down & the water warms up, the speckled trout will be more consistent. I look for a really good trout & redfish year this year. We had a mild winter & the rains we have been getting should school the specks up in certain areas of the bays. We are still using live shrimp under a MidCoast cork for our bay outings & live shrimp with a slip weight at the jetties. The key for fishing the jetties is getting close to the rocks & using the proper size weight according to the current. If you can't get close to the rocks, try a heavier weight & fish straight down to avoid getting hung up. When fishing is tough in the bays searching for specks, try to find the cleanest water & pop those corks. I want to thank all our clients that went out with us over Spring Break & this past week. Fishing only gets better & better as we approach summer, so if you would like to book or reserve a trip give me a call at 832-606-0844. Until next time, see you on the water.
