Surface water temps 84 degrees, water clarity good in most places for East Galveston Bay. Still a large amount of freshwater in the Bay system, however we have been able to locate trout without running too far from the launch spot in Stingaree Canal. Winds have been less than 15 mph for the most part, allowing us to fish pretty much wherever we choose, which has increased our success rates over the past week. We have been able to find a good number of baitfish / shrimp over shell and grass lines, and the predators have been close by. We have been utilizing live shrimp, under a popping cork, as well as paddle tails and ¼ oz jig heads on our artificial only charters. Purple with Chartreuse worked well for us again this week. We have been able to catch Trout, Reds, and Black Drum up and close to the shoreline, as well as open water reefs, with our larger fish coming off open water reefs. Tide movement as well as major feeding times have been where we have experienced the most success of late.
Now is the perfect time to hit the water with Family, Friends, and Clients, and as always, we will design a trip around your expectations, and guarantee you will have a great time fishing Galveston Bay.
