Fishing Connection - South Texas Fishing Reports

By: Spoony Bill

November 06, 2006 - This past week I had the pleasure to take Texas music legend Gary P Nunn fishing on the bay and share with him the beauty and the excitement of it. Another legend of early rock and Texas music Herb Steiner tagged along for the fun. We started out north of look out point on the flats in front of Cullenís house and found what we were looking for quickly. The Reds {24 inch to 28} were setting in the pot holes and the Trout were in the deeper waist deep waters. The Reds were really interested in the Gold Spoon but the small Trout {15 to 17inch} went crazy for the Gulp color new penny. The Reds were spotty but the drift kept us on them enough to make everyone happy. East side north at the drum boats the schools of Reds are small but easy to find. North up by Green Island the pods of Reds are in the real shallow waters Kayaks or wading is probably the best bet. East side has small pods and singles of Reds there but not plentiful. South end of the bay at the shelf along Highway 100 several full stringers of nice Trout are still being taken. Shrimp under a popping cork or Ballyhoo makes the Trout bite. South Bay has lots of action there but be careful of the low waters you could get stranded. Along the Island from the Causeway to north of the Frankee development nice keeper trout have been taken steadily along with 20 inch Reds. Behind the convention center is a prime Trout and Red area. Go get the boat and enjoy the mild weather, have fun and be safe!
