  Houston Chron:
Fishing Report - June 27. 2005

By JOE DOGGETT

Beachfront

Surf was small and green to sandy-green along most stretches of the upper coast. Small ground swell generated by Tropical Storm Gert diminished Tuesday morning.

Surfside Jetty and Quintana Jetty were fair for speckled trout, Spanish mackerel and occasional mangrove snapper on live bait, reported Surfside Jetty Park Store.

Surf waders along the Matagorda Island shoreline took good strings of trout on soft plastics, topwater plugs, and live shrimp under corks. The early-morning tide was best.

Galveston Bay complex

Deeper reefs and shell pads remained the go-to pattern in Trinity Bay and lower Galveston and East bays. Soft plastics and live shrimp were effective, and the key was to search for the slicks of feeding schools. Early-morning waders had fair success on slow-sinking plugs and plastics in East Bay and lower West Bay. San Luis Pass near the bridge was reliable for trout on live bait during moving tides.

Lake Rayburn

Black bass were fair to good, reported guide Will Kirkpatrick. Pre-dawn fish were taking spinnerbaits along open edges of weed beds, and gray-light fish were hitting topwater and floating/diving plugs. Scattered bass were surface schooling in open water, and the better fish were taking crankbaits 6 to 8 feet down. Crappie were fair on live shiners over brush piles in 15- to 20-foot water.

Lake Livingston

White bass were fair to good on spoons over humps and roadbeds in the main lake, reported Kickapoo Marina. Trolling and jigging were effective, and light wind allowed boats to work the open water.

Black bass were fair to good in primary creeks in the upper lake, reported guide Dave Cox. Points and channels were holding fish in
4- to 6-foot water near cattails, logs and brush. Shallow-running crankbaits and Texas-rigged plastics were consistent.

Choke Canyon Reservoir

Black bass were good, reported Texas Parks and Wildlife Department. Texas-rigged soft plastics caught fish along edges of grass, and Carolina-rigged plastics and deep-diving crankbaits were the go-to choice off main-lake points and steep banks. White bass were fair on trolled spoons. Crappie were fair on live minnows over brush in 8- to 15-foot water.
