Had an amazing day out on Matagorda Bay, we caught a variety of fish including Gafftopsail Catfish, Spotted Seatrout, Sand Trout, Skipjack Herring and even a Blacktip Shark. We decided to only keep the Trout but didn’t get our limit as many we caught were under the legal size limit. Our guide Capt. Stan said the day prior the larger Trout were plentiful but either way we were very happy. I will definitely keep him in mind for any future fishing adventure in the area.
