Corpus Christi Area Report  

>Red Dot Reporting Good Catches

>King Ranch Shoreline Holding Fish

>Baffin Bay Rocks Producing Some Trout


On the Red Dot Pier at the Humble Channel, fishing is very good.  Speckled Trout are biting well at night along with Redfish, Black Drum, and Flounder around the pier.  Live shrimp is working on the Trout and Reds.  On down south, the King Ranch Shoreline is producing Trout, Redfish, and Black Drum on live shrimp and popping corks.  Baffin Bay is producing good catches of Trout around the rocks by fishermen using live shrimp or lures.  There have been some spotty reports of catches in the Land Cut including one of Trout on artificials.  Although we are getting some good reports of fishing, it can still be hit or miss depending on the wind and water quality. 

Rockport/Aransas Pass Area Report  

>Black Drum in Aransas Bay

>Some Good Trout Action in East Flats

>Copano Bay Producing Some Trout


There have been some big schools of Black Drum in Allen’s Byte and along the shorelines around Spaulding Byte. Dead shrimp is the best bait. Wade fishermen have been catching some good size Trout using top-waters and croakers. Copano Bay has had good action on deep reefs, using live croakers.  There are a lot of small fish, but you can still put a few in the box.

Port O'Connor Area Report 

>Big Schools of Redfish

>Nice Specks

>Flounder Gigging is Good


Huge crimson shoulder Reds are rapidly showing up in large schools. Most of the fish are being released by anglers, especially the oversized ones. Live croaker free lined has been the choice of bait to feed these fish. Speckled Trout action has improved with several 7 to 8 pound fish released.  Also there has been great action with live shrimp yielding solid Black Drum catches in San Antonio Bay. Flounder gigging continues to improve in the POC region.   Light winds on July nights have delivered excellent gigging.
