Spring catches have been pretty steady despite winds from every direction.
The forecast this week calls for winds in the 5-10 knot range, which
is breath of fresh air. Our bays look good and are full of fish. We
have an opening for multiple boats on Friday May 4. We had a late cancellation
and Friday's are popular so if you are interested give us a call or
text. Follow our reports on Facebook, Instagram and weekly on the Texas
Insider Fishing Report on Fox Sports Southwest.

As is always the case in spring, you deal with the ups and downs of
weather. We have hid from the winds on those cold front days and managed
admirable catches of trout, redfish and black drum. When the water gets
just a hint of green the fish have responded on soft plastics and live
shrimp. Follow our catches of Facebook, Instagram and weekly on the
Texas Insider Fishing Report on Fox Sports Southwest.

Water temps reached 70 degrees for the first time in a month. We have
been catching trout and redfish while wading with soft plastics and
look for the topwater bite to get better this week. Our boat-fishing
trips have yielded mixed bags of trout, redfish and black drum on live
shrimp. We have boats available for this week, including Good Friday.
We hope you attend church Easter Sunday.

The past week might have been the best Spring Break of fishing I can
remember. Wading or drifting, fish just wanted to bite. We are very
blessed see our fishery in such great shape.Follow our catches daily
on Instagram and Facebook. The Texas Insider Fishing Report cranks back
up on Fox Sports Southwest on April 5. I'll be back this year covering
the middle coast.

It's Spring Break and vacationers have
hit Matagorda. We are running morning and afternoon trips for trout
and redfish out of the boat and wading. It has been a great 2018 and
we have been catching most of our fish on soft plastic Bass Assassin,
Down South Lures and ChickenBoy.

It was a great week for big trout while wading or
fishing out of the boat with Bass Assassins and Down South Lures. Water
temps reached 72 this weekend and that hasn't happened in Feb. in a
long time. Spring is here and Spring Break is only two weeks away. Get
the kids off the concrete and catch a fish. We have boats and lodging
available. This week we will be at the 43rd Houston Fishing Show at
the GRB Wed-Sunday. Stop by and say hello and/or get on the calendar
for the coming months.
It's going to be a good 2018.

We ditched the long sleeves and coats this week and actually got a little
color on our skin. The bay has been beautiful green and we have caught
fish drifting with Bass Assassins or wading with Soft Dines. We released
some good fish over 6 pounds this week and lost one that looked to be
over 10 pounds.
Hopefully spring will stick around.We will be at the Houston Fishing
Show Feb.28-Mar.4 at the GRB. Come by and say hello.Follow our catches

This is the first report of 2018 via
email. Most of January we were duck hunting, but now we are back to
fishing. It has been pretty solid drifting or wading. Most of the drifting
has been in the river and over deep shell in East Bay. While wading,
we have been working guts with the low winter tides with MirrOlure Soft
Dines, Bass Assassins and Down South Lures.

Come see us at the Houston Fishing Show Feb.28-Mar.4 at the GRB.
