Matagorda Bay Fishing Report
Fishing Report


April 20, 2014

I keep thinking this thing called winter is going to end. I am not going to open my mouth anymore. Every time I do the temperatures plummet back down into the 30s and I have to bring back out the winter gear. We have had a cold winter. Easter is here and I predict no more coats until next fall. Couldn't help myself. Coldfront after coldfront has really given us some windy days. In turn consistency hasn't been there for catching. Things are changing though. Glass minnows are lining the shorelines of both bays giving trout and red fish plenty to eat. Most of the fish I have been catching were in deeper water. They haven't moved up on the shorelines just yet. We have drifted shrimp over deep shell to catch half limits of trout and reds when the wind allows. When it blows I have caught full limits of reds in lakes off the ICW. Wade fishing the glass minnows down in west bay is just on the verge of kicking off. Flounder gigging has produced limits the past 6 trips. If you are ready to get out on the water now is the right time to do it. Captain Mark Talasek 979 479 1397
