From the first to the last wade, we were blessed with a solid trout bite. Knee to thigh deep, dirty to clear sand pockets with rafts of bait is how we concentrated our wades today. DSL Blue Moon and Corky Softdines got tore up. Our best bites were early till about 10:30, then 1:30-3pm. Most all our fish were between 19-23”, and unfortunately two got away that were over the 26” mark. But, there is always tomorrow.

Great way to end the day with good customers. Thanks boys for staying with

Little Kevin wasn't up for wading but we did grab his attention when we mentioned sight casting fish. Couldn't have asked for a better day, little to no boat traffic, sunny skies and light north winds. We found protection in the mangrove covered marsh of Matagorda Island. With receding north win
