What anglers said about fishing in Matagorda Bay

Book a charter and talk to your Captain about local establishments, restaurants and public fishing spots. Our Captain (Captain Reyes with Lucky 7 Guide Services) was very helpful and knowledgeable. We are glad we booked our trip shortly after our arrival in Palacios.

Go fishing with Keith Gregory’s Guide Service and you will have a great time because he knows some great spots to fish and you will have every opportunity to catch the Red fish.

It's the first time I have fished Matagorda in June, so I have no basis for comparison. This was a fun outing, even though the bite was tough. FWIW, I would do it again tomorrow with this guide. Very fun time.

Don't be afraid to bring your own rods and tackle. Try both artificials and live bait. Ask lots of questions, what are the best redfish spots, what are the best lures to use for each type of fish. What is your favorite time to fish, etc.

We caught a large amount of mangro snapper and used live shrimp amongst other forms of bait. The shrimp was one of the easiest for the kids to bait themselves

The facilities and bay are nice. The Reds were a little better target than trout at this point.

From what I hear fishing is always good here. Try to check the weather, the wind can affect the fishing.

Try to time your trip around good weather. When the conditions are right, it can be great.

Overall fishing in Port O'Connor is very successful. But please be careful if you bring your own boat, the topo maps on most GPSS are off. The last hurricane really change the area.

Be ready for some cooler weather than you think, but fishing in Port O'Connor on a crappy day is better than fishing anywhere else!

Good water. Plenty of variety of fish. Plenty of places to stay near by and plenty of charters to choose from. Just enjoy the experience and if you catch fish that’s a plus.
