We went out in Jan on an overcast day with cooler weather.. I know they say fish in foul weather but we really wanted some good eating fish and got nice catfish all day.. Just a fluke and I know you can 't have it all the time. Had a great time,, Captain was great, boat was fun... Fish were fun and we caught a bunch...just wasn't looking for catfish. Oh well, maybe next time... Thanks for the great time.

Book with George Strader , "George's Fishing Charter Service"! This guy will make your day! He had a sonogram instrument on his boat to find the fish. The day had a North Wind, which was not ideal for fishing--it kept the schools on the move and caused big swells in the gulf. The Bay, however, was excellent, much calmer & easier to find large schools of fish. The water was pretty cool but warm enough for a refreshing swim.

Keep a close eye on the weather and find a Capt who is easy to contact. Also find an experienced captain who has good ratings. That's your best chance at a successful day.
