Already are imo. Thresher was out at packery yesterday, catching snook, and caught a mangrove snapper to.
Talked to a friend in Bolivar this morning, and they were wearing the trout out.

Good to hear! If the weather holds out I'm hauling the boat down south when we go to rebuild and reconnect.

Be careful - 2 issues: floating debris and bottom changes (channels may have shifted or are gone). I can tell you that I saw channel markers on shore in Rockport when I was there last week.

Couple buddies have been doing good in Matagorda this past week. I'm on vacation all week so I'll be hitting it hard this week.

Derrick, we fished alittle at night after working on the roof on our cabin near Charlies bait camp and caught trout and reds. Luckily have power and water back and a new roof. Search for pics of Sunday beach or J-hook. Gone. Just another pass into the gulf it looks like. We had trout slicks popping up in front of the dock in the intracoastal so maybe they are in the deep water there.

I've heard East is on fire. Haven't heard any reports from West.

I wonder if the old coat guard station finally collapsed.....

It will be an interesting boat ride for sure.

Yeah, probably really changed up all the little cuts and islands in POC. Sunday Beach is now Sunday Pass. Makes me wonder what all happened to the barrier islands on Shoalwater and the Lagoon....

We didn't get out around Dewberry or shoalwater Hawkpuppy so I didn't see but the levees on the intracoastal where we were at didn't seem changed. but the small passes entering the lagoon and shoalwater on the bay side could be bigger now.

West Matagorda Bay will be mess for quite a while with all the crap washing into it from the Colorado River.

East Matty has been good and with some clean water to be found.

POC will be fine just stay away from the West Matty part of it until all the roofs, docks, porches couches tables chairs posts propane tanks steps et al have made their way into the gulf.

Corpus and Port Mansfield are good to go.

I went down this weekend to POC. After spending most of Saturday cleaning up I made a late afternoon run and found a good topwater bite. Lost a 5-6 pound trout at the net. West Matty is very fresh. Sunday Beach Bayou (new pass) is amazing to see in person. Tons of water moving in and out of there. It should be a great fall. Even saw some big ducks Sunday morning.

Has to be pretty limited in the salt water department?

We took a gamble and ran back from Sunday beach/pass through fish pond and mule slough. It didn't seem to change mule slough too much but we had a good tide. We will see what it looks like come duck season. It'll be a good time to get some new lines on the gps once we get the winter tides

Wall Hanger - did it change the entrance to Fish Pond? I think it will help lighthouse and the Army hole area out as well. Ned to get down there and slow roll and grab some new tracks as well.

What boat do you run?

I've made that trip one time in a flats cat and puckered up a few times thinking we were going to stick it but we made it through. Never tried it again.

No not yet at least. We ran right in the same way we have for years. I'm thinking the trail from fish pond to lighthouse may change some. We didn't have time to check it out.

We were in a 20' aluminum boat with a tunnel. It gets skinny in there and you have some patches of oyster but on a good tide you can run it easy if you know where to go. The skinniest part you run in there (normally) is where the oil field cut dumps into mule slough. Now running it in the winter can be pretty sporting if you are in a prop boat.

I read some reports of gafftop and reds in the surf at Surfside. Also heard that there are a lot of logs and whole trees washing up on the beach so be careful navigating out there.
