After keeping a close eye on the winds and water levels all day I had enough with being stuck indoors so I decided to head out for a quick evening trip close to home. I decided to pack light and only tote along my fly rod, fly box, and a […]

Sam, John, and I returned yesterday from our shortened trip to the Lower Laguna Madre. We made the trek south on Thursday afternoon with visions of pristine water and hungry linesiders, but our foresights never came to realization. Instead, we were greeted with dirty water and exceedingly low water levels. […]

Me and a couple of friends are heading south this afternoon for four days of fishing the snook-laden, hypersaline waters of the Lower Laguna Madre. I’ll post up some pictures and a report when I return. If there was any question what’s my favorite type of lure and what I’ll […]

Fishing has been outstanding. I’ve been all over the map here on the Upper Texas Coast, from east to west, and have found redfish schooled up shallow at every location. It has been very easy to find them. Just look for birds hovering, bait fleeing, or listen for the distinct […]


Get In and Get Out

Greg, John, and I hit the marsh last week and found several big schools of redfish early before the water level got too low. Bite lasted only a couple of hours because it was already mud slogging low and ripping out quickly. We had just enough water to float when […]

Here’s some pictures from Doug and I’s day on the water yesterday. We launched out of Galveston in Doug’s Maverick to ice cream conditions and fished several nearshore rigs. The water looked beautiful. We were in search of tackle and rigging testers and we found a few. No sightings of the Silver King but we did […]


Backs and Schools

If you watch carefully you can see some of the redfish swimming in the water before the hookup. I also spooked quite a few fish in this video that I ran over and had no idea they were there despite how shallow it was.

This past weekend was refreshing: the weather was nice, the fishing was good, and the company was great. Raymond and I fish together fairly regularly since I moved back to Houston this past summer but we’ve missed one of the fishing trio that we grew accustomed to growing up. Since […]

Doug and I fished West Galveston Bay this morning. I caught a couple of reds on the gold spoon fly before the wind picked up and made fly fishing tough. We also caught several reds and a few trout drifting throwing TTF Flats Minnows in morning glory, mumpy glo, and […]

If I had to describe my day of fishing yesterday in one word it would be phenomenal. My best day of fishing ever. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve had days when I’ve caught more and bigger but this was on another level. I have never seen so many schools of […]
