The fishing in spring for the Galveston Bays are usually determined by the wind. So far this spring has been one of the windiest ones I can remember. Over the past month we have had 3 to 4 days in a roll each week of 25-35mph wind. This makes it very hard to stay on fish and find calm enough waters to consistently catch them. Now on some of the days that the wind has laid, we have been catching some really nice trout and some keeper red fish. The most productive bite for us has been using live shrimp under a poping cork. Although with the water temps getting close to 80 degress, I will be trying some live croaker here soon. Most of our fish look really healthy and some have been really fat. That is good news for us and our future. It will only get better as we approach the summer months. Check back for another report in a couple of weeks. Until next time, see you on the water.
