started my 2017 tour in Corpus and the weather has been crazy.
Not crazy bad but crazy unbelievably warm. I'm wading in breathable
waders with shorts on under them. Water temperatures are hovering
just below 70 degrees and it looks like this coming week is going
to be mild with another warm up next weekend. At this rate we
just might be wet wading in mid March. I'm not complaining but
it's crazy good.
I've been fishing for a week and the truth
is that the bite for me has been slow. We've made several trips
to the Kenedy shore (the south side of Baffin) and we've caught
quite a few trout but lots of them have been short on one end.
Our boxes have however been blessed with one or two four to five
pound trout each day which is encouraging and a couple of my guys
have had big fish on but weren't able to seal the deal. It happens
to us all. This is the place where the chances to catch the biggest
trout of your career are better than any other place on the Texas
coast. You come down here to get that chance and when you get
it, it's between you and the fish. Sometimes you win and sometimes
she wins but at least you had the chance. If you don't come down
here then you may never .... well you get my drift.
The past couple of days things have stared
picking up and I think that once we get this full moon behind
us, fishing is going to really boom.
I'll keep you posted. By the way I've
got one two day spot left open. April 3-4 is available so if you
are interested in that chance, call me. Happy Valentines Day to
all of you ladies.
After Easter I'll be back in Matagorda
running trips. I'll also be at the Spring Fishing Show at the
George R Brown March 8-11 in the Laguna Rods booth.
That's about it. If you'd like to be a
part of my fishing adventures, call or text me at 281-450-4037

Here's hoping that you have some great
days on the bay's.
