General Fishing Notes for South Texas:

As always, pay attention to the majors and minors. August is one of the most difficult months to fish due to a variety of factors. The water is warm and baitfish are plentiful in the bays. The salinity of the bays is high due to the lack of rain. Fishing is slower in many areas due to the heat.

The water levels have been coming up in the bay system. The higher water levels bring areas into play that have not been as active. Try to find water that is cooler such as areas with hard packed sand or shell. In addition, guts, channels, and edges hold fish when the water is warm. Early in the morning has been better than later in the day.
