Fishing almost is at a standstill, as Christmas activities are taking priority and the weather is not favorable, with another cold front close to crossing the upper Texas Coast.
Early this next week we will be taking a look at what is ahead for holiday visitors who are interested in fishing and where the action might come from and what to expect in the way of catches.
Friday afternoon there was at least one group of anglers on the water and from the report it appears the trip was worth it.
Jose Aceves and his party fished the Bolivar Gas Wells during the outgoing tide. There they caught and released several sheepshead and oversized reds, along with an oversized black drum estimated to have weighed close to 40 pounds.
Afterward, they moved to the marshes and landed two slot reds that were retained. Shrimp (no mention of whether live or dead) fished on the bottom accounted for all of the fish.
As we start shutting things down for Christmas, I want to say that I hope those items on your Christmas wish list will be there tomorrow morning or whenever the gifts are unwrapped.
Regards to all. Have a wonderful Christmas and most of all, Be Safe!!
