Fall fishing under birds, full moon and the shrimp migration

It’s happening right now. Bay shrimp migrating out of the estuaries and bays headed toward the Gulf by the billions. The magic night that happens is on the of October 13, 2019 full moon. Live bait trout fishing is officially over live baiters this year, water is cooling and plastics are no doubt the baits of choice to throw now until July 2020 and it’s live croaker bait time again.


Then when the shrimp are gone the bigger trout come and feast on finger mullet in shallow water. The big trout fishing just might get real good baring any flood water from Trinity and San Jac rivers.


The bay wateris looking better every day, saltier, clearer, foam in the boat’s wake. 18” specks were plentiful under birds yesterday afternoon 4 pm – sundown. Plenty reds feeding on migrating shrimp too.


Catch 5 good keepers and the rest of the spec catch is C&R fun now, the brothers are always watching and fines are not cheap this fall, careful what you keep in the boat livewell.


Trout fillets cost about $25 per lbs. now if you keep the 5 biggest trout. Times are good for sport fishing in Texas and specs are expensive .

So does that mean bait shops won't have live shrimp? I was going to buy some to get the family on some sheepshead at the jetties

The bait shops still have plenty of live shrimp, and had them until mid December last year here in the Pt Lavaca/Palacios area. Believe me trout are still eating live shrimp and will do so whenever they can get one.

We have a long way to go before all the shrimp have migrated out of the bay. Our bays are still totally loaded up with shrimp. It's just barely beginning right now.
