Jason, Mark, and I spent a few days in Matagorda, Texas last week fishing several new areas. Fishing started off slow in the mornings but we managed to catch a decent number of trout late in the day on topwaters. All of our fish were in the 16-20″ range. We […]

Trout fishing has been inconsistent as of late. The unseasonably warm winter has made it tough to pattern trout in their usual winter haunts. Only a few trout landed over the last few trips, but mostly solid fish. Despite the slow trout fishing the redfish bite has been great in […]

Due to obligations (work) I was only able to get on the water once last week. Mark and I decided to check out a new area. We got a late start because we didn’t have any expectations and we wanted to give the fog a chance to burn off. We […]

Fishing has been flat-out ridiculous on the Upper Texas Coast. Huge schools of redfish everywhere you look. The water has cleaned up nicely with the passing of the last few cold fronts too making the fish a lot easier to spot and catch. It’s been a sight fisherman’s dream in […]

A trip month’s in development has finally concluded last weekend. Mark and I planned a trip to the Land Cut for some time now. Mark hasn’t lived in Texas very long and his first sight fishing experience was a trip he made to Land Cut last fall with his buddies […]

Fishing around a full moon has always given me fits. Couple that with the recent heat wave blasting Texas and you will soon understand why fishing the marsh under the moonlight sounded like a good idea. What I have learned over the years fishing around a full moon is that […]

It’s that time of year when marsh fishing slows due to the heat. The bite is usually good early and earlier. The bite shuts off right about the time you feel yourself baking like a sun-dried tomato. With water temperatures in the marsh are hovering in the 90’s most fish […]

During the summer months I usually get out and off the water early, but the tides weren’t quite lining up for an early morning bite around the Upper Coast this past weekend. The tides at every spot I contemplated were identical no matter how north or south I looked on […]

We finally turned the corner from spring and got a break from the winds last week. But the break comes at a price in the form of the heat. Summer here on the Texas coast has arrived. This is the most consistent time of year for an early morning bite […]

When word of the apocalypse first was brought to my attention I felt unprepared. I thought “what am I going to do on my last day of existence.” That thought didn’t last long. I had my rods, reels, tackle, and kayak loaded up Friday night in preparation for what was […]
