Trip Info


When the water temps are in the upper fifties in the open bay like we have now, seek out warmer waters. Explore the canals, creeks and bayous to find it and you will likely find trout and reds. Getting them to eat can be tricky though, they are easy to spook and a little slow to respond. Artificial baits work pretty well back there and live bait is even better. Sheep head don’t seem to be as sensitive and they are a good bet around the bridges, deeper docks and the pass.
