‹ Galveston Bay Fishing Report with Capt Paul Marcaccio
March 11th, 2011 Current catching of both speckled trout and redfish have been excellent to near limits for both fish.
Areas in Trinity near Van-u-tun, Double Bayou, The river and north of there.
East Bay has produced good number in the 20 inch range on or near Hannah’s, Lady ‘s Pass, or Elmgrove point.
Campbell’s Bayou is showing signs of bird activity near Sand Is. or near Virginia Pt.
Best colors are the shad body in either chicken-on-chain, chartruse or black/chartruse tail. Use either 1/8 or 1/4 oz lead
Using 1/4 or 1/2 oz gold spoon is effective as well. Top water bite was excellent before the water temp dropped in the mid-60′s. Chrome, bone or chartruse works best at a slow retreive. Braid line from Sufix 30lb has been seeing good results. Fish are at or on the bottom in 5-7 feet. Visibility is good to about 2(two) feet. Water temp is hovering around 60 degrees. yesterday. Added sunlight will aide the temp toward the magic 70 degrees’s.
My rod preference is The Green Rod in 6’6″ in the fast tip.
EXL1. or 6’2″, same tip and action.
This year Spring Break is starting great with yesterday’s results for a limit of reds and good numbers of spec’s to 22 inches. Finding shell and mud with some slickin in the area will produce good numbers of fish.
Enjoyed everyone’s visit @ George R. Brown fishing Show last week.
Look foward to your next trip and the memories we will share together.
