‹ Galveston Bay Fishing Report with Capt Paul Marcaccio
Summer Pattern Speckled Sea Trout
This past month of July 2010 will be remembered as one of our Gulf coast hottest from the weather to production of or finest fish along the coast.
Speckled trout have been caught in good numbers using an array of baits. Depending on your skill level, both plastic and live croackers have resulted in limits and near limits of that great fish along with good numbers of slot redfish.
Live bait has been in good supply due to folks like Eagle Point and Hillman. They have done a great work to keep us fishermen in ample supply of those great bait fish.
On the other hand, soft plastic users have been rewarded with great numbers as well. It does require more casting.
Best colors are pearl, glow, limetruse and texas roach. Using 3/8 or 1/2 and maybe 1/4 oz lead depending on the currents. Fish are on or near the bottom in 8-10-feet. Visibility is great and temp is hovering around 85 degrees.
Areas like Hannah’s,Deep, Tide Gauge, Campbells and the wells inTrinity are producing good size spec’s to 24 inches.
Wells in C Lease and F lease along with the Sun Oil in Trinity Bay. Birds working near Smith Point and near the
Best time is daylight till 1100 am or 7pm till dark…….depending if you can get any tidal movement.
