Fishing Report: June 16, 2014
Thank goodness it finally
warmed up!!!!! Watch for the calm days to check out the surf on St.
Joe Island. The seaweed should end real soon and the trout should be
knee deep in the surf. Also up and down the beach from Port A. Live
croaker is best, but take a cast net and watch for schools of mullet
as they will work too. In the bays look for trout at the wells in
Corpus bay. So far they are loaded with gafftop so the trout should
show soon. Check the outside of the Ingleside dump for trout and
occasional reds. the croaker are reaching a decent size just hope
the shrimpers didn't kill too many trying to make a buck off those
puny weak ones they were killin tryin to sell.
As for reds look behind Dagger and Ransom islands in the potholes
for fish with mullet, shad, or cut pin perch for bait. Try drifting
the flats with live shrimp and an Alameda rattlin' cork. Watch the
upcoming tide charts at UTMSI website for some great afternoon
fishing when the tides are really low.
Just a word of wisdom to our kayakers, when crossing the Aransas
Pass shrimp boat channel before sunrise GET A LIGHT!!!!!
A lot of us run to Port A to pick up clients early in the morn. The
lights on Harbor Island make it hard for us to see anything in the
I almost nailed a kayaker a couple of weeks ago and informed him as
politely as I could how a light would have been helpful. There are 2
guys that cross and they have LED LIGHTS on their hats and signal at
me as I am running and I blink my lights back and move away from
them. Lets keep it safe out there for you and me. Capt. Clark
