I got to fish with my son this morning. He doesn't get to fish near as much as you'd think he would. After he got out of school for Christmas Break we spent a few days at the deer lease and then hit the bay this morning for our Christmas Eve dinner. We fished about 2.5 hours this morning and caught a nice mess of fish and released a bunch more. All drifting shell and throwing plum/chart and roach colored 5" Bass Assassins on 1/4 oz heads in 5' of water.

Anyone have any guide suggestions for Port Aransas/Aransas Pass inshore fishing this spring?

I want to book a trip for my brother and Dad before they start filling up, and give me something to look forward to after the holidays.

Our last surf trip together, had him on BHP hooked up on a couple of bullreds with his favorite custom rod - he is dearly missed.









Ah, man. I lost my Dad when I was 26, and miss him dearly. He was my hunting/fishing partner, mentor, hero, everything to me. 25 years have flown by so ya'll enjoy every minute you have with them. God bless and ya'll have a very Merry Christmas. Oh, hitting West Matty this morning with the Bro in law. I'll post what we find.

Ended up going to East Matty, out to Tripod and Hog Island. Caught a bunch of little trout, reds, flounder, sheepshead and even a few rays. Ended up cleaning 2 reds, 2 trout and and a sheepshead. Got pretty windy so headed in. Going back out Sunday. Ya'll have a Merry Christmas. God bless.

Did pretty good in Surfside the other day, but we got ran off the water by the mosquito's. Just when we found the trout to top it off. The thought of bringing OFF didn't even cross my mind as its late December. We tried to tough it out but I looked at my coworker and he had about 20 mosquito's on his back and I said thats it...we threw in the towel and headed back to the ramp. Quickest boat hookup I ever did by the way.

Went out this afternoon. Fished for flounder for about an hour with nada bite. Moved onto the flats and fished sand grass pockets in 4ft of water. Probably caught 60 trout. Most were 14-16 inch fish but did catch about 6 that were 17-21 inch fish. All had fat bellies gorging themselves. Bait everywhere on surface.

Not eating fish tonight so no fish harmed

Went out on a scouting trip to Moses Lake today. I've been fishing East Matagorda for so long I'm out of touch completely with Galveston. Left my house in Pasadena (light winds) to find it blowing around 15mph in Texas City. Wasn't able to fish much, just road around and got wet. Oh well.

Did you see where tpwd is proposing 3 trout limit for the next 2 years. Something like 3 fish 17-23 inches. I think it was from upper, middle and lower coasts but not sure. They are asking for public input even though they already know what they are going to do.

Where the "2 years" comes in is it would be in effect for 2 full spawning seasons. Emergency orders can only last for 18 months so that is why it'll be 18 months. At that time they can look at the data and see where we are at and decide if anything more needs to be done.

I've only been keeping 2-3 trout at a time since the big freeze anyway. Is what it is, at least we can still take a few home to cook.

I’m for it. This freeze and what we saw online after is that many only care about the bottom line, not the resource.
