THE ENTIRE ECOSYSTEM IS ABOUT TO COME ALIVE!

 

 

Hello my fishing friends,

It is hard to believe February is already here. This year should be special.
The fresh influx of water flowing through the now open Cedar Bayou, is filling our bays with new life for the entire ecosystem. This should help the blue crab population increase, which in turn will feed many of our marine inhabitants, as well as the migrating Whooping Cranes.


I will be spending more time fishing areas that had become stagnant in previous years, areas in San Antonio Bay, St. Charles Bay, and Nueces Bay. These areas still held fish, and you could grind your way to a box full, but I'm hoping the schools of all species of fish we target will increase.


Also, the limit on trout they placed upon us last season reducing the catch from 10 to 5 should start working its magic. It would be nice to be able to catch trout, redfish and black drum all in one day again. There are some downfalls to the opening of Cedar Bayou. For the novice boater, the tide fluctuate much more now. They can become dangerously low if you do not know the area and the hidden reefs and rocks that lay just below the surface. Please be careful if you are navigating the flats and bays.

 


On the good side, redfish and black drum are all along the drop offs right now. Schools of 20 to 50 every 30 yards is not uncommon to see. They are swimming just under the surface staging on their way into the flats. if this is any indication of things to come, this should be a spectacular year!


Remember, if you are going out on the water, always let someone know where you are going, and when you plan on returning. Cell phones work in most areas now days so keep yours charged in case of emergencies. Be kind to one another, there's enough water for us all, always use a licensed captain, and have fun!
