Houston Chron: Fishing Report 08-28-06
By SHANNON TOMPKINS

Galveston Surf

Rough, sandy surf triggered a good run of bull redfish Saturday night and into Sunday, reported Samantha Hallman of the Galveston Fishing Pier. The bull reds hit cut menhaden, mullet or sand trout.

Squid and dead shrimp fished on lighter tackle accounted for good catches of gafftop, keeper redfish and a few panfish.

Galveston Bay

Best recent catches have come from submerged spoil banks, reefs and shell pads around reefs.

Live croaker have worked best in deeper water such as spoil banks in 6-8 feet of water, Johnny Valentino of Eagle Point Fish Camp said. Live shrimp fished beneath a popping cork has been the most productive choice when fishing reefs and other areas in 3-5 feet of water.

East Galveston Bay


Best reported catches came from the bay's south shoreline where waders keying on pods of bait or feeding slicks took modest strings of speckled trout. Most of the fish hit soft-plastic baits fished on light leadhead jigs

Offshore


Anglers aboard the Captain John partyboat managed fair mixed catches on Friday and Saturday trips. Spanish sardines and squid fished around structure in 60-100 feet of water produced red snapper, a few lane and mangrove snapper and a mix of other species.

Gibbons Creek

Catfishing has been the most productive option, said Chase Sanford of the lake check station. Anglers fishing cut shad on bottom in fairly shallow water have taken good numbers of 2-5-pound blue cats and 1-3-pound channel cats.

Crappie fishing has been productive for those who know locations of submerged brush and timber in 12-17 feet of water.
