Weekly fishing report ending May 7, 2024

The surface water temperature is 75 degrees. Water clarity is good for East Galveston Bay. We battled the typical Springtime winds again this week, so it once again limited where we were able to fish effectively. We found good numbers of solid trout on the Shorelines over shell pockets and within proximity to drains where we had good current movement.

If you see bait flipping on the surface the fish are close by, if not, you are best to move on to another spot, after making a few casts. The lighter the jig head the better (1/16 to 1/4), determined by the wind and current, and tails without paddles, are still performing the best, as we were utilizing Anahuac based, Wac Assassin's in Pearly White & Chartreuse, depending upon clarity and light conditions. This week Fish Smack Popping corks with a 1-to-2-foot leader above a Marker 54 Glide Shrimp has been the top performer for our fishing friends. with a hard pop and about a 5 second pause gathering the most strikes. The new 1/8 oz Shrimplets are coming on strong as well, catching some of our larger trout. The Topwater bite has also been good of late, so if you like throwing walking baits, now is the time.

Spring is here and fishing will continue to heat up as the water warms up, so grab your family and friends and beat the crowds on East Galveston Bay.
