If you’re looking to catch fish, the entrance fee to Calaveras is definitely worth the cost, as is hiring a local guide. Shore anglers do pretty darn well there as well. If you’re looking for a more natural, scenic setting, I’d highly recommend going to the Guadalupe River or Canyon Lake.

April a little early in the season for reds, some days good, some slower. Fishing improves in May and red hot in June and July. Good fishing for reds until December but they move around. Incredible lake! We live in NW SA and were home in a half an hour. Incredible!

Getting out is the key, if you find a local guide help you understand what fish is doing for the season. There’s different types of bait for the different species. Have fun don’t stress if there’s no catch at first, it is a pleasant process when reeling in your fish. ?

Don't hesitate booking with Captain Jesse. He showed us a good time and we caught our limit on during our trip out. We will be back.

Give it a shot. Be prepared to catch fish. Redfish put up a good fight, are tasty and you can keep anything over 20 inches. A good guide can help a lot. Well worth it!

Reach out to other captains and/or locals to help point you towards the good spots or other recommendations.

Winter is hit and miss. For us, today, it was great. March through summer is supposed to be more consistent.

Spring to summer is probably the best time to fish, we did good this time even with the cold weather

All you’ll need is your drinks, snacks and fishing licenses. The captain has everything else covered.

It was just bad timing for reds. They weren't in schools. They were scattered in many different areas.

If you don't have your own fishing boat and gear, it was well worth the time to get a guide service with Bones Fishing Guide Service.

Lake Braunig is a great place for spring fishing, particularly if you're interested in fishing for red drum.

Afternoon trip might be a little warmer. Redfish are stocked in the power plant lakes and reach keeper size and smaller ones are just as fun to catch.

Use one of the Charters and fish/catch your dinner on our power station cooling lakes. The cost is about the same as a trip to the coast to fish but here you can catch and for kids that is great.

It’s slow fishing until it’s not! You need to wait until the fish are ready.
