General Fishing Notes for South Texas:

As always, pay attention to the majors and minors. Early morning or later afternoon seem to produce the best, especially for lure anglers. Redfish have been over grassy areas. Shell areas produce speckled trout. Pay attention to the water temperatures. If the water is too warm, look for cooler waters with deeper edges. Look for potholes on the grass flats. Bait activity is also important and there is lots of bait in the bays systems. Combine multiple factors to give you the best opportunity.
