What happened to the El Pescador? Haven't been on TBH in a while and I'm betting I missed a story.

Trout were no where to be found so we caught bull-reds all day on Saturday. Made a run offshore on Sunday, James’ new X3 did great in 2-3’s with the occasional 4-5’.

Thanks man. You get the 10yr warranty? I got this one from the Ron Hoover salesman and he purchased during the 10yr warranty promo last year. It had about 9 left so that sold me. I added the 5yr to the electric and its like bumper to bumper and that's priceless on these **** money pits

I'm not sure about the next couple days, but it was rough and muddy as can be this morning in Sargent.

I'm in Corpus the next few days and my 5 year old nephews are wanting to go fishing. I've done some pier fishing at Keepers pier in Port A, but that's about it. Can anyone give me any other pointers or has anyone been to Bob Hall lately?

Thanks in advance!

I was in Surfside this morning, water was calm but dirty as it gets. We found some better water close to San Luis Pass and caught a bunch of dinks. I ended up with 3 keeper trout and a 22" red. My brother was in Matagorda and said it was real dirty.

Took possession of the new to me Majek and got into some rats while taking my neighbor out. Had a darn good time until I hooked up on a 5’ gator that spooked the reds.

Capt Paul Braly.

I took a trip with him this passed Tuesday. I'm a guide, I've fished with lots of guides, and I honestly believe he is hands down my favorite so far. He was great with my wife, very patient, helpful, and good at what he does. We had limits by 9:20am, For a few more hours we ran around and chased redfish. Reasonably priced, nice boat, good gear. Look him up, you'll be fishing with a premier redfish tournament guy from the coastal bend. Until I buy a new boat he will be the guide I recommend to all of my customers. If you decide to book with him tell him Capt. Chris Lawrence sent ya. Best of luck!

Now you see why I always recommend him when people ask very knowledgeable guy and a great guy as well. Fished with him many times pre fishing for tournaments. What's cool about Paul's trips is there's usually always a variety of fish he doesn't just go catch trout and then your done. He will mix in some drum and redfish as well.

There were a couple of TBH’rs on this trip. We couldn’t catch a kingfish all day. Usually catch all of our limits.

Good man. Wish I could get down there more often. I have a 2000 model 21’ RFL that I bought from another TBH’r. I think you’ll be happy with your purchase.

So Im from the Dallas area and made a quick trip to Corpus to visit family. We went to the surf just north of the Packary channel and the surf was really calm. It was a little murky but you could see the green water. This morning at first light I went back to the surf north of the Packary Channel this morning using live shrimp under a popping cork and all I caught was a bunch of skipjack and bonnethead's. I was changing depths a lot trying to find trout. The surf was really calm and I was really expecting to catch some trout, but no luck. Should I try something else next time or were the trout just not in the surf? Any pointers appreciated.

Outgoing tide fish the end of jetty of just inside by about 30-40 yards. Live shrimp n cork right near the rocks should yield some trout.

We got booked with Paul years ago due to a schedule miscommunication with another guide. Super nice guy and hell of a guide. My son was Fairly young at the time and he was great with him.

Spent they day chasing trout from marker 37 to mouth of Baffin. Pretty tough day. Caught lots of small fish on croaker. Dodged a few storms. All in all was a fun day. I haven't had much luck finding better trout the last two trips. Any body have in inside tips for catching summer trout.

Just bad timing. There’s a cold water upwelling event right now, which is making the surf tough to fish. Cold, dirty water isn’t great for surf fishing, hopefully it will clean up and warm up soon.

Fished the surf Saturday morning and didnt catch a fish.

Took the wife and kids around east bay, around bird island but was just joy riding more than fishing.

Me and a buddy fished east Matty this morning, but got chased off by the storms around 9:30. Ended up catching 2 rat reds and 1 dink trout, and my buddy caught a rat red and a 16 inch trout. Fished the west end around St. Marys and the conditions couldnt have been better. Fished the reefs at the mouth of the gulf cut on our way out and picked up the keeper trout and missed another fish.

All in all in was a good morning besides the rain storms running us off and he fact that i broke the tip off my favorite Waterloo rod on the first fish of the morning.

Fished this weekend with my daughter in Mansfield. She caught her personal best 23” trout. Great weather for them to fish last couple days. Croaker and top waters were used in 3-4’ of water.

Fished Wed-Saturday. Did really well in the bay Wednesday and Thursday. Friday/Saturday were spent in the surf in Surfside. Caught tons of fish but lots and lots of dinks. It was a great week of fishing. Back to work tomorrow.

Purple reign DSL were the only thing we could get a bite on today.

I did hang one fish on dirty tequila, but that was the only hit.
