Yes, trout are on the beach front. The earlier the better for them, but you rarely get fishable days early. April/May is when you catch the big girls in the surf.

We had a north wind this morning. Should have had the surf knocked down this morning and very fishable. When I lived in Brazoria county it was lights out in May when we had a north wind and flat surf. Daylight top waters could be on fire.

Back when Sabine had salt water, a buddy of mine hooked into the big old sow trout. Shark got it about an inch behind the gills. What was left weighed 4 lbs.

I do not like sharks and I no longer wade fish the surf cause of them. Had a 6 plus footer right on top of me one time that intimidated the crap out of me. I cut loose my stringer full of trout and got the heck out of the water to never return again. Op - Catch that slight north wind and go tear em up.

I had a shark grab some trout on a stringer, when I was fishing on the back side of Mustang Island, around Fish Pass. That got my attention. I thought a buddy was messing with me, yanking on the stringer. But he was on the other side of me, so it was not him. We got up on a sand bar as quick as possible. We lost two trout before getting out of waist deep water.

I have wade fished a lot since then, I still worry more about sting rays than sharks. But farther up the coast around Port Lavaca, I would worry more about sharks than I do down around Red Fish Bay, Aransas Bay, Copano Bay, Nueces Bay and Corpus Christi bay areas.

I have seen numerous sharks while fishing in the surf, and while swimming in the surf, on both Mustang Island and North Padre.

Probably won’t be a popular reply but I don’t worry about sharks. I gave up wading years ago because of that flesh eating bacteria when the water gets really warm. From The first of June till late October I stay dry. And I don’t like waders. Just sayin.

Me too, but I still wade when we go to the Chandeleur Islands... Used to think that it was safe there from the bacteria, but I think it was 2 years ago when we were there in July, there had already been 2 cases of Vibrio at the southern end of the islands around Breton...



And one other pro tip... If you are afraid of sharks when wade fishing, you'd best just avoid the Chandeleur's altogether!! That's the most shark-infested place I've ever fished... Used to fish out of a sea plane and flying over other fishermen, it was unbelievable the number of BIG sharks they were in the water with and never knew it... I'm talkin' Jaws size sharks!

Guys/Gals; in the grand scheme of things,there’s a lot of things out there that “can” hurt you. Fearing it enough that it keeps you from enjoying something isn’t always the best thing to do. For example, you have MUCH, MUCH higher odds of getting into a vehicle accident than getting Vibrio, but you still drive rather than taking a bus? You have MUCH higher odds of getting Heart disease by eating fatty foods or drinking too much alcohol, but most of us aren’t in tip-top shape and eating food that we should/shouldn’t…….than getting Vibrio. Point is, if you enjoy a healthy activity, do it and take precautions. If you have open wounds, maybe wait a couple days to fish. If you stick yourself with a hard head barb or cut yourself while in the salt, wash it with 10% bleach solution (I keep some on the boat). I just don’t understand the rationale of “I don’t do “x” because of “y”….. Heck, most of us got married, some multiple times and look at those odds 😁

I think you have a better chance of getting struck by lightning while holding the winning lotto ticket, than getting vibro. I could be wrong though, I am a lot apparently.

It’s actually not that common and it’s been around forever and a day , they just didn’t know what it was!

I’ll be in the surf in a few weeks and I will not be worried 1 bit about it Or the sharks!

Jim West and buddies hammered some big trout on topwaters at Crystal Beach last weekend. Always lays down when I'm out of town. I'm thinking about wading the dike this Saturday if the wind isn't too bad.

I don't let any of that stop me from wade fishing for sure, but I DO take precautions... I have a very good friend that was fishing the boat cut in the North Jetty in Galveston. He wasn't even wading, but was fishing the Boliver pocket side and slipped on the wet rocks and scraped his ankle... Less than one week later he woke up in the hospital with his right leg missing from the knee down... Docs said if he'd waited another 24 hours, he likely wouldn't have made it... Yea the risk is low, but the later in the season it gets, the warmer the water gets and the risk goes up exponentially the warmer the water gets... I only know two folks who actually got this infection and neither one of them were wade fishing... The other guy was fishing out of his boat. He didn't ever get IN the water on the trip, but contracted it through a small wound on his leg that got wet from water splashing on him and messing with the fish he caught and dipped in his dip net... He did not lose his leg, but he came close. He was aware of the danger and went straight to the doctor when the wound became inflamed/infected the next day. Caught that one early but he's still got a very nasty scar on his leg...

When someone says soft plastics for salt they usually mean working a jighead with a paddle tail or shrimp tail lure. Down South, Saltwater Assassin, Hogies, Kelly Wigglers, the choices are endless. Gulps under a cork can work and are convenient but live shrimp work better in my experience.

Then gulp shrimp or gulp mullet on a jighead would be your best bet, if you don't want to tinker with live bait. Since your not from the salt you also probably enjoy the traveler trout you will catch with the gulp as well

Judging by your avatar picture your a younger man with a very lovely family if I might add. You’ll find that with age things will change for you. The older you get the more problems you will have with skin issues and bites or scratches or cuts that take a lot longer to heal than when we were younger. My rationale of “ I don’t do “x” because of “y” is really no more than I take more precautions now because of the time that I have left in this world is very valuable to me and I won’t play Russian Roulette. Myself, I have had a lifetime of memories chest deep in the surf with years filled with epic trips. I still have the passion but I no longer live on the coast so I devote all of that energy on my deer lease which is 20 minutes away. As for the risks of driving and all of the other risks that you listed, I have to drive. I have no choice in the matter. Go back and read my post again and hopefully you will realize that I was not hating on anyone that chooses to get in the water in the summertime. Just expressing my choices not to do so. With age comes wisdom from experience. You keep doing life the way you are doing it and have a ball and cherish everyday. Your walking in the footprints of us older guys that have already been there and done that and have way to many tee shirts.

If I wasn’t chunking topwaters at daylight ( if the surf is knocked down) I preferred chartreuse mirror lures or chartreuse soft plastics as the sun got up a little bit. Never thought about rattle traps although I would use them in the bay under a popping cork for redfish.

I have boxes full of rattle traps Terry! I take the treble hooks off and put singles on them ! To make it more interesting I file the barbs off .
