Fishing Report 08-23-06

Galveston Bay

Eagle Point Fishing Camp reported only a few boats on the water because of early storms, and rain persisted well into the afternoon. Scattered redfish taken on live bait or cut mullet over deep shell, but little else was noted.

Beachfront

Galveston Fishing Pier reported fair numbers of bull reds and sharks taken on cut bait cast from the T-head. Also mixed strings of whiting, sand trout, black drum and flounder on fresh shrimp fished near shore. Speckled trout steady overnight, fair in the afternoon on green water at the T-head.

Port O'Connor

Guide Kris Kelley reported no better than spotty trout action in the bays, but the surf has been loaded with specks each time it falls clear and calm. Redfish continue good on topwaters, soft plastics or natural baits worked along protected shorelines. Conditions were good overall.

Lake Livingston

Kickapoo Marina reported only a couple of boats on the water recently. Lake remains more than three feet low but otherwise in good shape. White bass action should be good on spoons bounced or trolled over traditional summertime spots. Trotline catfish have been steady on fresh shad or live bait soaked along channel edges.

Lake Conroe

White bass remain good on small spoons trolled over humps and off points early. Also some whites and hybrids on jigging spoons in 16-20 feet of water. Black bass spotty, but there were a few fish on June bug worms at 6-8 feet. No update on crappie or catfish, but count on a decent catfish bite here in baited holes most any day. Sky threatened late.

Sam Rayburn

Bass fair to 3 pounds on spinnerbaits or worms worked along edges of grass beds in 5-8 feet of water. Also a few fish early on topwaters or small crankbaits worked over grass beds that rise within a foot of the surface. Crappie slow overall, but a few decent strings on minnows soaked patiently over deep brush. No update on catfish. Conditions were good.
