Matagorda Bay Fishing Report
Fishing Report


June 12, 2016

I can't count the calls and texts I have received from people concerned about all the fresh water. Is there any fish left? Are the bays fresh? I smile and send them a picture of the days catch. Yes we have received our fair share of fresh water in Matagorda. But don't worry about it the fishing is great. West Matagorda is fresh on the east side of the bay. We just have to travel a little further west to catch fish. East bay is a different story. It doesn't have any direct access to the gulf. Only local rain runoff feeds the bay. I have never seen the bay totally fresh. The north east side is fresh. But this has only congregated the fish out of the back lakes and into the middle. We have consistently been catching limits of specs upto 28" drifting deep shell. Live shrimp and gulp under a poping cork has been the best. The birds have worked when the wind allows. The surf has coughed up some good catches as well. Flounder gigging remains productive.
