I know that is been a while since my last report and the only
excuse that I can come up with is laziness. Sunday afternoons
come and it's been too easy after fishing all day to kick back,
have a drink, and watch football. Like everything else, I've had
good intentions but the road to hell is paved with good intentions.
The fishing has been pretty damn good weather permitting. We have
had some weather. I can't remember it getting this cold in November
ever. Prior to these Arctic fronts we were chasing schooling reds
on the north shore of East Bay and also finding some birds working
there also. Well the cold weather screwed that up but it put a
whole bunch of trout in the river.
This week I limited my customers out on trout three straight days.
Wednesday I had Jason Mallory and his three young sons fishing
the river with me. I had them throwing pink and white tail Norton
sand shads on 3/8th lead heads. They had their twenty trout by
10 o'clock. Then we headed to the Diversion Channel where they
boxed four reds. It was a really fun day for everyone including
On Thursday Jim Williams and his buddy Patrick come in from San
Antonio and go with me up the river. It was a bit slower but we
go their trout and one flounder by noon just before the weather
caved in on us.
Friday George Covington, Mary C's dad and Jude Arisco went up
the river with me. We fished in the rain limiting on trout by
I moved my Saturday group to Sunday which turned out to be a brilliant
idea because the weather on Saturday was horrible especially Saturday
night. Strong thunderstorms moved thru and it rained unmercifully.
It was amazing how beautiful the weather was when we headed out
on Sunday morning. Naturally the river was a mess from all of
the run off so we headed to East Bay. After an hour there and
only two small trout I decided to move to West Bay and shoot for
some redfish in some back areas. That paid off big time. My guys
limited on redfish and boxed one nice flounder. We were in just
in time to watch the last of the Texans loss.
I'm booked all this week except for Thanksgiving Day but I've
got plenty of week days open the first couple of weeks of December.
If you'd like to catch some fish give me a call.
I hope everyone has a great And safe Thanksgiving.

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.

of tackle, baits, and supplies to make your day on the water much more

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.

me on the water. They are the top Suzuki dealership in Texas and work
