Matagorda Bay Fishing Report
Fishing Report


October 2, 2016

The first cool front has rolled through Matagorda bringing milder temperatures. We were able to fish the surf a few days with winds out of the north. Limits of redfish were caught on live shrimp. A few trout were mixed in but were scarce. Higher tides have brought in some reds to the back lakes. Finger mullet has been the best bait. East bay has slowed somewhat. Drifting with live shrimp has produced half limits of speckled trout. Wading leeward shorelines has produced trout to six pounds. Dark colored plastics rigged on 1/8 ounce lead heads have duped the big girls. Trout activityunder the birds is starting to pick up with the cooler temperatures. It should be a great fall with all of the rain we had this summer. The rains have produced a bumper crop of shrimp. Flounder gigging is still producing limits in both bays.
