It is had been a rough month to say the least.
Recovering from Hurricane Harvey is on everyones's mind and fishing has taken a back seat. We first want to thank all of those first responders out there that put their heart and souls in to their jobs and made a difference by saving hundreds and possibly thousands of lives. We can't thank them enough. That goes for all of the policeman, fireman, medical units, rescue squads, coast guard, game wardens, etc, etc.
THANK YOU!!Sweet Double!
Now let's talk some fishing. Bait may be a little tough to get at first but once a steady bait supply starts hitting the bait stores things should get rolling again. This flood is going to be beneficial to us and flush out the bay system and once it does, if history repeats itself, then fishing should be off the charts. I remember the fall 2008 season after Ike hit and it was on fire. I can remember some days that were just downright stupid they were so good. Big Trout
Look to the southern portions of our bay system to get rolling again. Trinity and the San Jacinto rivers are going to make it possible to catch catfish and bass around the Northern portions of the bay for awhile. But if we can keep the tropical systems and major flooding away from us then we should be back to normal in 4-8 weeks. West bay, East Bay and the jetties will clean up first and are the best places to begin fishing. Everybody good luck out there and be safe. There is still lots of debris coming down the rivers.
