Pass pier reported good numbers of trout overnight and early on Yozuri floating plugs or speck rigs. Also, steady action on free-lined live shrimp. One ling, 52 inches, was taken on cut bait recently. Other catches included gafftop during the day on white squid along with the occasional shark.

Galveston Bay

Eagle Point Fishing Camp reported scattered trout around Dollar Reef on live bait or soft plastics. The occasional flounder from the same area, but fishing overall has been on the slow side. Water was mostly off color and a bit choppy.


Trout steady to 5 pounds on topwaters fished early around active bait along grass edges in West Bay. Some action through the morning on purple/chartreuse soft plastics. Redfish fair to 7 pounds on gold spoons or bright-colored topwaters in the same general areas.


Capt. Elliott’s Party Boats reported good snapper to 6 pounds over structure at 40-60 miles. Long to 40 pounds, grouper to 20 pounds, amberjack to 35 pounds, as well as a 50-pound wahoo taken from deeper water. Gulf has been choppy enough to slow boat traffic overall and cause skippers to scratch some trips.

Lake Conroe

Guide Debby Watson reported continued good numbers of white bass on jiggins spoons fished over humps in 22-24 feet of water off main points. Also, small hybrids, to 16 inches, feeding with the whites. Catfish good as always; fish have moved onto the river channel and are best at 22-24 feet.

Toledo Bend

Cypress Creek Marina reported excellent crappie to nearly 2 pounds along outside edges of grass in 8-12 feet of water.

Bass tough overall, but anglers are scratching out a few bites early on pumpkinseed worms or white spinnerbaits.
