Matagorda Bay Fishing Report
Fishing Report


August 16, 2014

It has been an incredibly great summer for fishing. Past summers have been slower. Go out wade or drift until the sunshine bakes you and then head in with half limits of fish. July and August of this year has produced exceptional boxes of trout and red fish. We have been drifting east bay with live shrimp still where several trout up to 30 inches have come across my boat. Green water has hit the beach more days than normal as well. You know what that means. Usually, easy catching in the surf. Wading with live bait has been a no brainer for those willing to get out of the boat. I am now going to let you in on a little secret about west Matagorda bay. Some of you know the state rebuilt half moon reef off Palacios point. There are over 35 acres of man made rocks just beneath the surface. Speckled trout are loaded around these rocks. They are not marked on the maps yet but have white bouys on the edges. It's a little bit of a journey from Matagorda but we'll worth it. We have caught limits with artificial as well as live shrimp when weather permits. Limits of flounder are still being stuck from west bay for those wanting to beat the heat. Fall red fishing is fixing to get going soon. Give me a call for your next fishing trip to Matagorda. Captain Mark Talasek 979 479 1397
