Redfish,redfish, and more redfish! We
have been catching some redfish. East Bay or West Bay? It doesn't
really matter. Wading or fishing from the boat? Sure. Either way
works. It's fall people! Redfish time!
Seriously, we are catching a bunch of fish and having fun doing
it. The temps are cooler in the early morning and the water temps
are dropping too. It's just plain getting more comfortable to
I've been finding reds in West Bay mainly out in front of drains.
They will be in tight until the tide starts falling and then you
can find them scattered out on the flats.
My best producing baits have been the Mirrolure Little John in
Glo/chartreuse or in purple rigged on an 1/8th ounce lead head.
It throws like a bullet and has a very erratic action. It's pretty
much a kick ass little bait and just like all of the other Mirrolure
soft plastics that I throw they are impregnated with scent.
In East Bay I've been working the grassy shores looking for and
finding pods of reds that are feeding on shrimp. Watch for nervous
birds or gulls just sitting on the water near the grass. They
will show you where the Reds are.
Hey, we are catching trout too but I'm keying more on redfish.
Fishing overall is very good and should only get better as we
get into fall.
I've got some weekdays open in the coming weeks so call,text,
or email me and get on my calendar.

the MatagordaBay. com featured fishing report.
For many years I have given fishing reports
thru news papers, magazines, over the radio, and over the phone. Now
with the Computer Age, the Internet is a wonderful avenue for me to
continue these reports. I promise that in my reports each week I will
tell you exactly how it is (or was) with no candy coating on anything.
My sponsors have come together to bring you
my weekly fishing report:
Laguna Custom Rods now builds the rods that I use to do battle with
trout, redfish, and big tripletail. I'm convinced that we build the
most sensitive rods on the market meeting each fisherman's individual
needs based on the type fishing that he or she does. I'm so convinced
that I bought a piece of the company which gives me more input on rods
than ever before. Customer satisfaction is of the utmost importance
to Laguna and we stand behind our produce. If you mention that you read
about Laguna Rods on my report, we will knock off $50 on any custom
rod or $20 off of any of our Liquid series rods.
Harbor Bait and Tackle is the Academy of Matagorda with a great selection
of tackle, baits, and supplies to make your day on the water much more
enjoyable. Open seven days a week at 5:30am, they work hard to give
us the greatest bait and tackle shop on the Gulf Coast.
Midcoast Products make the innovative new line of corks that I use anytime
that my customers use live bait or fish artificial under a cork. They
rarely foul and give off a sound that entice fish to slam your bait.
Busha Boat Works of bay City take care of my boats and motors and keep
me on the water. They are the top Suzuki dealership in Texas and work
hard to give their customers honest, dependable service. More and more
top guides on the Texas coast are putting Suzuki motors on their boats.
If Don or Tim tell you that they will take care of your needs, you can
take it to the bank.
TORRENT BOATS was founded with one thing in mind, the Fisherman. When
combining a streamline profile, wide beam and hull that is built to
last long while running smooth and skinny, with finish based on your
style, the result is a custom fishing machine built to accommodate your
every need while in the chop or on the calm water. With over
30 years of combined fiberglass boat building experience, you can rest
assured your boat will be built with quality as the utmost importance.
