General Fishing Notes for South Texas:

As always, pay attention to the majors and minors. The tides have been lower on average. The water is hot and the fish, especially the trout are hanging in areas with access to deeper water. The bite is better early in the morning, especially for the speckled trout. Try to target the speckled trout early and move to target other species, as the morning sun gets higher in the sky. The deeper water has been holding the speckled trout. The shallower water has been holding the redfish.

If you are using artificial lures and like to use topwater lures, early in the morning is the target time. Try a 1/16 oz jig head when in shallow water. Move to a 1/18 oz jig head when in deeper water. Anglers are finding success with 4” paddletail lures in various flavors depending on the water being fished. There have been reports of good activity around reefs and shell areas.
