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.

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 on Facebook and Instagram.

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.
