Matagorda Bay Fishing Report
Fishing Report


November 12, 2015

Another year of fishing is coming to a close. New five fish limits have allowed trout populations to replenish. An abundance of rainwater has combined to make one of our better years for catching in Matagorda. Not just numbers but quality as well. Catches have been above average. We have consistently run 10 boat charters out of my lodge catching 150 trout up to 8 pounds. That tells me the bay systems are in excellent shape. Most of the fish have been drifting deep shell reefs in east bay with live shrimp. Rainwater has helped the shrimp crops as well. This is the first year since the late 90s that shrimpers were able to catch any amount of shrimp in east bay worth talking about. My brother has kept bait tanks fully stocked with shrimp from east Matagorda bay this year. We have caught good numbers of fish under birds as well. I see this trend continuing with the mild winter we are having so far. Flounder gigging was excellent before the November closure and should be the same when it opens up December first. If you want to get in on the action give me a call.
