General Fishing Notes for South Texas:

As always, pay attention to the majors and minors. The weather this week may not cooperate with getting out on the water. Be sure to check local advisories and conditions before heading out. The water continues to be warm, which affects the fish activity.

Redfish have been located in the sand potholes. Speckled trout have been good in the mornings near access to deeper water. Look for areas with good tidal movement, including wind-driven water flow, and choke points. As we have been saying, you will likely catch many under-sized trout before you locate the slot-sized trout.
