ACROSS THE AREA, THE FISHING is good, but the water is pretty chilly. Obviously, the cooler water temps will put the hammer down on anyone aspiring to go wade fishing.

Trinity Bay: Good. 68 degrees. Water stained. Speckled trout continue to be great on soft plastics and live shrimp. Wade fish the flats for redfish with nothing deeper than 7 feet. Flounder are very good on mullet or shrimp.

West Galveston Bay: GOOD. 67 degrees. Flounder are very good in back lakes and marshes on live mullet or soft plastics like Gulp bait. Redfish are fair in back marshes. Speckled trout are fair on the main bay oyster shell using live shrimp under a popping cork.

Texas City: GOOD. Still some bull red action along Texas City Dike. Flounder is excellent on live shrimp or minnow around Seawolf. Speckled trout good along levee and Mosquito Island. Black drum is good on blue crab or shrimp.

Freeport: GOOD. 67-71 degrees. San Luis Pass very good flounder and redfish along Mud Cut and Cold Pass on live shrimp. Christmas Bay good for redfish and speckled trout using live shrimp or soft plastics. Bastrop Bay redfish on the south shoreline. Freeport Jetties and mouth of Brazos River good for bull reds.

East Matagorda Bay: VERY GOOD. 68 Degrees. Speckled trout and redfish are very good on chunking plastics or live shrimp. Red drum is good on live shrimp and mostly found in the surf. Flounder is very good on a minnow.

Port O’Connor: GOOD. 45-50 degrees. Slightly stained. Drastic swing in water temperature due to the cold front and freeze warning.

Flounder are good on minnows or mullet and croakers in vegetation.

North Sabine: GOOD. 63-65 degrees. Water clarity is normal, with high water levels, and trout are still biting well on jigs and soft plastics. Redfish can be found mixed in with schools of trout following the shorelines. Best lures right now are soft plastics and jig heads fished with or without a popping cork. Best flounder bait is live finger mullet or mud minnow on a short fish-finder rig (Carolina rig) or Gulp lures on a jig. The cold front has changed a few patterns to later in the day but nothing dramatic yet.
