General Fishing Notes for South Texas:

Once again, the winds have been the story. The water is on the dirtier side because of the churning of the winds. Look for bait in the area. If there is no bait or bird activity, move on to a spot where there is bait and bird activity. Summer time has arrived and the water temperatures are in the 80s. Fish are moving into guts and on the edges.

Try to find the potholes. If the baits are in the grass, it will be harder for the target species to locate the lure or bait. The speckled trout bite has been consistent on live croaker early in the morning. Guides are reporting great catches of speckled trout with the occasional redfish all on live croaker. Waders are also finding good success early in the morning. No particular lure or color has been producing consistently, so be sure to have a variety of colors and sizes.
