I think today sight casting reds with a good 'ol client was among the top 3 best days. After trolling a few ponds with little to no redfish, we found ourselves powerpoled down in front of a drain. This drain was 4-5ft deep surrounded by a foot of water, and literally hundreds of redfish cruising in it. For 2 hours we cast at fish, not all would eat, but we caught our fair share.

The first feed this morning yielded a few keeps and several smalls on DSL Watermelon. Now the mid-day feed was 20-25" trout on topwaters, Spicy Pumpkinseed, and Dirty Tequila. All fish were caught over knee to thigh deep grass beds. Fishing remains consistent with several solid fish each day being caught. Come on down before school sports put a stemrangle hold on you. We have plenty of availability for August and September.
Cody Hughes of Graham, Texas, shows off a Spanish mackerel he caught earlier this week while fishing the Lower Laguna Madre with Capt. Gencho. Good numbers of Spanish mackerel have been being caught along the beachfronts up and down the Texas coast and in the bays along the Lower and Middle Coasts when clean water moves in with the incoming tide.

In fact, the southern portions of the Gulf of Mexico's bookend states - Florida and Texas - are home to a handsome, hard-fighting game fish that is an exhilarating catch on fly: snook.

Traded in the wading boots for some shorts and crocs, as we set up the tower and tried our hand at sight casting reds. Success, despite the high clouds we were able to find some gin clear water and let the Buggs Lures do the work. Redfish can't resist the Texas Tea Bugg.
The fishing around Rockport and Port Aransas is really hot right now. Fishing in the San Jose Island surf north of Port Aransas is unbelievable. The speckled trout and redfish bite is on fire. We are catching limits of trout for a crew of four fisherman in less than an hour when conditions are favorable. Usually light winds and small waves. Croakers are the best bait but plastics including Bass Assassin’s 5” jerk shad, top waters, and diving plugs like the old stand-by broken
