Ok, my buddy the "High Sheriff"
of Matagorda County chastised me last week for not talking about
fishing enough so this week I'm detailing my trips.
Monday and Tuesday I had Bill Herrington and his guys from Distribution
NOW wading West Bay with me. We had a cool front over the weekend
that blew out of the north a pretty much messed up the water so
I had to run all of the way to the pocket of Greens to find decent
water. We also found some nice fish down there. Cindy Gardner
was with us Monday and started the morning off with a 6 lb. trout
that she popped along the shore. It wasn't long before the guys
pitched in with a mix of nice reds, trout and flounder. Almost
everything was caught on Mirrolure Little Johns in glo/ chartreuse
or purples demon rigged on 1/16oz. leadheads. Don Rathcamp was
the only one who used something different. He was throwing Gulp
under a popping cork and limited on flounder, reds, and trout.
When we headed in we had a dozen trout 6 reds and four flounder.
Tuesday we had a southeast wind so I hit some guts and we found
lots of trout. We ended that day with 17 trout, 4 reds and two
flounder. Both days we also caught lots and lots of undersized
trout and reds.
Thursday I had Richard and Chelsea Morris with me fishing out
of the boat. We drifted the west end of East Bay and picked up
a fish here and a fish there and at 1:30 we needed three trout
to limit out. Chelsea caught a 3 lb. speck and I had a 5 pounder
on Mirrolure electric chicken Marsh Minnows. We headed in and
found two bunches of birds working where we finished out our limits.
Friday I had Andy Glassnap and Artie Mathis back in East Bay.
As we ran east on the canal we found two groups of birds working
at one of the cuts. We hit them and had our limits of trout by
8:15. After that they caught and released fish and we headed in
Saturday I had Mike, Austin, and Zach from Trimbuilt Construction
in Austin with me. We found lots of birds working on the east
end of East Bay with most of them being short on one end. By the
end of the trip we had seven nice specks and two fat reds on ice.
All in all I'd say that I had a pretty good week don't you think.
Now Skippy, how was that?
I'm booked up for the remainder of November
but I've got plenty of weekdays open in December. Come to think
of it, a great Christmas gift would be a fishing trip with me.
Think about it and contact me.
I'm starting to book trips for Baffin
in February and March. I've got the great house that we used last
year and if this year is as good as last year then we will have
another great season down there. Two days fishing with two nights
lodging for three or four people is $1700.00. If you are interested
get your trip booked asap.
