This is going to be a quick report with
plenty of pics because I'm tired and about ready for bed. I've
got to go to work tomorrow and try to rid our bays of some of
those pesky fish.
The past couple of weeks have been fun considering its August.
We had some good tripletail trips and some great wading trips.
I'm even kind of starting to like light west winds. Have I started
losing my mind? Anyway the winds at least have been fairly light.
The tripletailing has been pretty slow this summer but in the
past couple of weeks they are starting to show up again. I had
Tim and Becky Dykes one day and we boxed two to ten pounds, lost
another keeper and released five small ones. Later that week Tommy
Barber, his son John and grandson Tres were with me and we boxed
four to 16 pounds and released several small tails. Wading for
trout this summer has been very good. This past week we boxed
22 trout one day all on topwaters. The next day we had 20 trout
and one red. Yesterday we came in with 12 trout two flounder and
two reds. We should have had 25 trout but we had at least 15 that
half way in came unbutton. Most of the trout that we boxed were
18 to 22 inch fish.
Anyway August is almost gone and the fall is rapidly approaching.
It's the most wonderful time of the year for outdoorsmen and I'm
September marks the beginning of redfish schooling and there's
no better way to have fun than throwing a topwater into a batch
of reds and watching them fight over it. I've got a number of
week days open so call me and let's go get some.
We are having a great summer of fishing and the fall should be
better so don't wait too long to book a date.

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.
