Despite a rather frosty start to the new year, the flats fishing – particularly for redfish – has been hot! The water temperature has dropped considerably throughout the bay, with the average hovering right around 50 degrees.  The passage of more cold fronts in the coming days will likely make the water cool even more.  While...

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...

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...
