I know that its been a while since my
last report and the best excuse that I can come up with is that
I've been pretty busy. I try to get my reports in on Sunday nights
so that you can read them on Monday mornings when you get to work.
While down in Corpus each winter my Sunday nights just don't seem
to have enough time in them for me to get everything done. I fish
all day, come in clean up the boat and get it gassed up, iced
down, and ready for my Monday clients who are coming in that night.
I usually go over, open their house, visit with them and then
go to dinner. By the time we finish it's bed time and 5 o'clock
comes awfully early. So, my fishing report gets put off until
I finally have a Sunday night with a bit of free time in it. Tonight
I have about 45 extra minutes so here goes.
The past several weeks have been hit or miss for fishing down
here. Disappointing would be a better way of describing things.
Water temperatures warm up into the mid 60s for a few days and
then a new front hits. I'm not even going to talk about the wind
except to say that I've learned to dislike a strong east wind
down here about as much as I do when I'm fishing in Matagorda.
Anyway, I looks like my last two weeks of fishing here will,at
least have the water temps tickling the 70s which will get the
top water bite going. We've been catching fish on top with fair
consistencey and it should only get better. I'm looking forward
to the next two weeks but I'm also looking forward to my return
to Matagorda on April 12.
Today was a prime example of how the fishing can be when you have
good conditions. I had Johnny Mac's guys in and after anfairndaynon
Saturday, today we boxed 26 trout and an eight pound redfish with
the biggest trout tipping the scales at 5 pounds.
Anyway, enough complaining. I've loaded some pictures from the
past several weeks for your viewing pleasure and will try to get
another hopefully exciting report in next week.
Like I said, I'm back,in Matagorda after the 12th and my schedule
is filling up fast. There are a lots of folks interested in tripletail
and I've booked quiet a few dates for that. The tails should be
making an appearance sometime in May and I plan to get after them
with a vengeance. If you want to be a part of this then you had
better call me soon. Trout and redfish will be firing up also.
To book a trip with me, call 281-450-4037 or email me at email@example.com.
You can look me up on the Webb at www.matagordafishing.com. Hope
you have some great days on the bays.

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.
Gulf Coast Boats of Pasadena builds my 23 ft. Kat that allows me to
run the skinny waters of Texas and stay dry and comfortable. From their
225 ft. Variside to their 18 ft. Lowside they make a boat to fit your
boating needs. Call Susan Gilley and talk to her about a Gulf Coast
and the buy it at Busha boat Works.
