Corpus Christi Area Report  

>Tides are Way Out, Fish Deep

>King Ranch Shoreline Holding Trout and Reds

>Land Cut Good for Fish on Croaker or Piggy Perch


With the tides at such a low stage right now, the deeper channels are the place to look for your fish.  The Humble Channel and Red Dot Pier are prime areas to fish now up here near the bridge.  The drop-off along the King Ranch shoreline is also producing good catches of Trout and Redfish.  Baffin Bay fishing around the deeper rocks is producing good fish.  The Land Cut is yielding good catches of Trout and Redfish on croaker. 

Rockport/Aransas Pass Area Report  

>Some Trout in Northern Aransas Bay

>Copano Bay Producing Numbers of Trout

>Estes Flats Producing Reds, Drum and Some Trout.


Northern Aransas Bay has been producing some good trout using live croakers or piggies, over deep shell. Copano Bay has been producing a lot of trout over deep shell, using live croakers. You will have to catch a lot of throw backs for every keeper that will go in box. Bait fishermen fishing Estes Flats have been catching Reds and a few Trout. They are fishing in the sand pockets while using finger mullet, piggies, and shrimp.

Port O'Connor Area Report 

>Look For Trout Over Sand and Grass Flats

>Top Waters Early, Bait Later in Deeper Water

>Sandy Holes Holding Trout


Speckled Trout will be our primary target this month, but good catches of Redfish, Black Drum, and even Flounder will also be recognized.  If we can’t try our luck out over the shell, we’ll look for Trout over sand and grass flats all along the length of Matagorda Island.  Without changing strategies, we’ll offer top water baits early in the morning, and then will follow the bait out to deeper water while throwing plastic tails like the various shrimp and paddle tails.   Fish shallow early and move to the edges of the sandy, grass flats as the sun warms things up.  We’ll look, also, for sandy holes surrounded by heavy grass in the flats, as Trout love to sit in these holes and wait for their next meal to be delivered to them by the moving tide.
