Weekly fishing report ending June 17, 2024

The surface water temperature is 85 degrees in East Galveston Bay. As in previous weeks, the Water clarity is still stirred up more than usual with all the freshwater entering the bay system from the heavy rains up above us. We are still finding good numbers of solid trout on the protected Shorelines over shell pockets and in areas with better-looking water. Redfish are being found along the grass lines and over shell pockets. A few nice flounder are busting bait up around grass lines and over shallow shell beds, with good current flow. If you see nervous 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 with paddles, performed the best for us this week, as we were utilizing Anahuac-based, WACky Shad Xl's and top-performing colors varied, depending upon water clarity and light conditions, with Monkey Milk, being a favorite of the fish this week. Our clients are still finding success using Fish Smack Popping corks with a 1 to 2-foot leader above a pink tinted shrimp imitation lure, or Tails with a 1/16 oz jig head, with a hard pop and a 5 to 10-second pause gathering the most strikes. The Topwater bite has also been good when utilized on our early morning and late afternoon trips. If you like throwing walking baits, now is the perfect time to get on the water and make it happen. We are starting to see some solid fish show up on reefs in the middle portion of the bay, which should get better as the summer progresses. We also found a few birds working in the middle portion of the bay and found some solid trout and some Gafftop under them, which is typical for this time of the year. The fishing pressure has been higher than normal for East Bay, which is a result of all the fresh water in Trinity Bay. If you can go any day other than Saturdays, that would be my recommendation for your fishing pleasure.

Until Next Time
