As we close the book on another fantastic year of fishing, I find myself eagerly awaiting the fishing opportunities that 2018 will have to offer. The year began with a shot of cold weather but that should help to congregate fish – especially speckled trout – in deep bayous and creeks.  Some redfish will also move into those same...

As the season transitions from fall to winter, several things begin to happen.  First, you will notice pinfish and most other baitfish disappearing from the shallow grass flats.  Mullet and bull minnows are the exceptions and will remain on and around the flats throughout the winter.  Other baitfish move into deeper water in bayous...

Recent changes in air and water temperatures have prompted many species to stack up in schools and gorge themselves while the food is still plentiful.  In many places, the pinfish are in big schools floating on the surface and, if you look closely, there are lots of speckled trout and redfish hanging out underneath them.  This is when...
