Buddy of mine told me it was now illegal to wade fish at San Luis Pass. Turns out it’s a half truth. The Brazoria County Comissioners Court has filed an order with multiple County and state agencies to create a penality for wade fishing, swimming and bathing in the designated areas of the Brazoria side on the attached map. So far it’s still America on the Galveston side.
I’ve fished the designated area before. I know at times the current in that area is extremely swift. IMO it’s not a good idea to wade out very far from that shoreline. I’ll never forget the trip when my buddy acted like he was getting swept away in the current. Anyways, here’s the notification.
The summer time lay down has begun. Fishing has turned on in the past week. Limits of speckled trout are easily being taken while wading the calm morning and afternoon waters on the beach front. Smacks are moving in so be prepared to lose some tackle. If you plan on targeting smacks try using long shank J hooks to prevent there teeth from severing your line.
Conditions: Light west wind switching to south in the afternoon. Falling barometric pressure. 4 fairly weak tides.
We started drifting a mid bay reef Wednesday morning just before sunrise. The reef produced quite a few small sand trout on live shrimp. We moved out to the North Jetty boat cut and picked up a nice mess of trout. Live shrimp under a popping cork did the trick. We then moved to the beach side of the South Jetty and it was on. Free line shrimp was the ticket. We boated over 30 slot reds, a couple were under. We kept 14 nice trout the largest in the 23″-26″ range. Smacks, Sheep head, drum and Sharks were all in the mix. Phenomenal day on the water and a nice meat haul.
Putting the word out on a great fishing guide service out of Hackberry, Louisiana. I was a Hackberry virgin until last week.
Took a guided trip with Anthony Busceme of Busceme Black Dog guide services. Excellent trip over all. Anthony provided the boat, gear, bait and expertise to put us on a mess of speckled trout. We picked up a 3 man LA. limit, 45 specs.
Anthony’s other associates put their clients on piles of fish themselves. The cleaning tables were loaded with specks, redfish and flounder when we returned. FYI, Anthony also offers guided water fowl hunting as well. If your visiting Lake Charles and want to catch some serious fish, book a trip with Anthony. You won’t be disappointed .
