Redfish action continues to strengthen as we head toward the opening of regular duck season this weekend. Winds have been cranking to near 30 knots with open bays shredded and off color. Shallow upper bays have been running uncomfortably clear through the winds that have deminished today ahead of an approaching cold front. Trout action has taken a back burner to blistering runs of slot and oversized Redfish along with Black Drum to 20". Matagorda Island lakes and back marsh have been holding a significant number of fish from the far back back to the outer lakes near deep water and open bays.
We will be back to a North wind pattern here shortly and probably through the weekend if predictions are correct. From one extreme to the other, that's Texas weather and Texas fishing. Now is the time to start keeping your eyes to the skies.
Youth Duck Hunting Weekend
The youth hunt over the weekend was a big success with the Anderson group kiddo's sporting full limits of puddlers.
Good luck in the outdoors and stay safe out there.
