We have a year round fly-fishing season for redfish and trout, drum, and the elusive sheepshead! May through November we see tarpon, mackerel, jackfish, and ling on big water near jetties, ship channels, surf, and front beach. Prevailing southeast winds from April through October provide clearwater and protected lee shorelines for sight casting opportunities. Non-res and resident salt (or all water) fishing license for all over age 17.
Year round redfish, speckled trout, black drum, sheepshead, and incidental flounder. Late spring brings tarpon 40 lbs. to 120 lbs., jackfish to 30 lbs. and king and Spanish mackerel on jetties, channels, and front beach.
Coastal grass flats and a series of bays with a barrier island to the Gulf of Mexico. Manmade jetties and natural passes along with the Aransas National Wildlife Refuge, wintering home to over 400 whooping cranes from October to April each year. Several inland rivers drain into this region.
Water temps range from 50s to high 80s F. We start wet wading late March through Halloween. Winds in summer out of SE up to 20 mph from April to September. Cool fronts typically start in October and come in every three to 5 days through March.
