JULY 2018 FEATURED ARTICLE BY CAPT. JEFF SIMS – USCG LICENSED FISHING GUIDE
Let’s Have a Fish Fry!
It’s that time of a new year; let’s start looking at the next few months for fishing. With weather patterns changing, that call for fewer fronts and warmer trend patterns after cold fronts, a combination that makes for the perfect dates to go fishing. Whether you like wade fishing with lures or fishing from the boat with bait, the outcome can make for an extremely successful day on the water.
Wade fishing can be wonderful this time of year, as long as you don’t mind the chilly air and crisp cool mornings. With waiters and lures we will be out on the water going after big reds and trout. It makes for a full, fun and exciting fishing experience for the avid fisherman.
I remember a trip early in March of last year, where we waded Cedar Bayou with lures/plastics in the surf. The trout bite was extremely good, and we caught easy limits for two days in a row. Now that was a good time! We caught fish till everyone’s arms were tired. So, for the avid fisherman this is when fishing with plastics is at its best!
Fishing with live or dead bait out of the boat is an experience in early spring you don’t want to miss. As the water temperature rises, we get good trout bites and in late March and April we will see large numbers of reds and black drum as well.
I had a group of college couples over spring break and they had a blast catching limits of trout and black drum all in one day. Forty fish to fry up that night and a great day to remember on the water! So, we can count on high numbers fish going into spring even with the cooler temperatures. The winter has stayed mild, therefore the fishing should be consistent all way through the spring. There will be specials running for spring break in March, so if you are ready to fish give me a call. You’ll love the fishing this time of year.
