ASSUMPTION OF OUR WISH HAS BEEN GRANTED. After weeks of dealing with strong winds and generally cooler than average time, the situation has significantly improved. The weather and wind have significantly stabilized as we approach the two hottest months of the year, and we are now able to fulfill our desire to fish on warm( hot ) calm days. Most days are so pleasant and peaceful that I have to convince myself to use caution when making wishes. I’ve switched from pleading for the storm to give us a break to hoping for some air to lessen the misery.
In the hot summer months, particularly from around mid-July through August, these slick-offs are common and should be anticipated. The lead will decrease during these slick-offs from a whopping 6 to 1 or 0 speed. The best part is that they typically happen around midday when the temperature is at its highest. The full lake will be like glass. Big schools of trout and reds push shrimp to the surface during these times, making them simple to find and keep in the incredibly quiet water. For limits of fish and reds, it’s nice to be able to quickly find schooling fish without the aid of birds. In essence, all you have to do is watch and listen for any floor activity, from crab skipping for their lives to ladyfish or fish popping. Prime real estate can be found at the northern end of Sabine Lake between the northern levee on Pleasure Island and Three Bayou. Bring 6 12 to 7 12 feet of medium-light spinning or casting equipment that is sized 1 / 8 to 1 / 4 oz. 10 to 12 lb. result mind a variety of soft polymer bait, as well as test line. D. O. is one of the wise decisions. Shad Sail Neck and Down South Lures from the A. C. L. collection. To determine what they want most, experiment with various colors, but gentle hues like shine or anything with a chartreuse tail typically work.
Topwaters like Skitter Walks and She Pups, which typically draw some of the larger fish, are another excellent hook options. Another very effective tactic is tossing a soft plastic bait on 24″ under the popping cork.
During these hot summer months, there is no lack of carp in our system. They may cover the cove in a number of sizable clouds. Good trout and bruiser reds should be produced by fishing the boarders and a little deeper.
Another excellent method for catching strong salmon and reds close to these shad pods is free-lining or rigging live or dead fish beneath a popping cork. The bayous on the lake’s Louisiana area have been giving up some nice containers of flatties as the fish bit continues to be strong in anticipation of their fall migration. Recently, Bridge, Willow, and Johnson Bayous have been the most steady; things will only improve in the coming months. The most effective creatures have been lived dirt minnows and bend neck grubs tipped with fresh shrimp.
Come join us this summer for some soft behavior on Sabine if catching bass in the intense heat and virtually no wind sounds like fun to you.

Since it’s this time of year, my customers and I typically wake up early because of the temperature. In an effort to experience some cooler temperatures, I typically begin my fish times at this time of year well before the sun rises. This time of year, speckled trout fishing is usually excellent, especially when pursuing deeper oyster islands in West and East Galveston Bay. These locations have a lot of oyster reef biodiversity and deeper water that is slightly cooler during the day. The various oyster reefs along the Houston Ship route are another area of Galveston Bay that is very successful. Artificial floating or life baiting, like croaker or shrimp, can result in some high-quality fish and large numbers.
When fishing in the summer, I typically use 1 / 4-ounce jigheads with your preferred soft plastic or an 18-inch leader with a kale hook. You can add the conversation weights to the front of your survive bait equipment to make a lot of noise and keep your fish in the strike zone. Don’t be shocked if you also flounder or hook into a great red!
Additionally, now is a great time to search for some of the bass species that migrate into our sea systems and coastal waters during the warmer months. When the conditions are right, sharks, jack, tripletail, and cobia may be targeted in Galveston. When hooked, these fish can produce some excellent actions and often reject live bait. Cobia and Tripletail are well known for their proximity to floating buildings. Everything from seaweeds to garbage and even color changes could be the target area. I usually use an 18-inch-long, 60-pound abilities leader with a good circle hook for cobia. My go-to decoy for catching cobia and tripletail is typically live bait. For tripletail, I’ll use a 25 pound fluorocarbon setup with just one small circle hook that is 1 / 0 or 2 / 0 size and attached to the small swivel. You typically use some sort of cable leader for sharks. This line can have one or more strands, but I prefer to use coated multistrand line because it is much simpler to manage and less likely to cut you when you are handling it with a fish on the other end.
There are many opportunities for fishing from the beach or along the beachfront this time of year, even though I typically fish from a ship. Speckled trout surf fishing can be” speck-tacular ,” especially at first light. Additionally, dock fishing offers a fantastic option to fish close to the shoreline without entering the water.
So this summer, make certain to go out and take part in some of this fantastic fishing! And keep in mind that during our sweltering Texas summer, it’s important to drink plenty of water and avoid the sun as much as you can. I’ll see you on the ocean.

Except for those who must go summer school, school has canceled, and the buses have stopped running. I feel bad for you.
Straight then, summer is in full swing. The harbor is teeming with life, and the water temperature is in the 80s. Our prevailing east winds are the norm, and great fronts continue to move up north.
When this happens, the surf will calm down and allow the clean water to reach the shore. Red and fish enjoy coming to the clear waters to feed on the baitfish. Anyone can catch fish in the beach, according to the old joke.
Personally, I enjoy surfing in the beach. Scoop out from the beach and link on your preferred bottom water or plastic. I’ve had some of my best hunting experiences while surfing. Work the area and look for lure there. Because sharks will undoubtedly be in the area, make sure to have a much bowman. In a five gallon bottle, I made some holes and then covered it. It works wonders to keep fish away from sharks when a square floating is placed around it.
Trout can be caught on plastics and best water for those who prefer to remain in the boat. Typically, casting into the first intestines and anchoring to the next sand bar are the best options. Live bait is usually a substitute. Things will always be thirsty, so be prepared for some pulls.
The ED exclusive, the late fantastic Mr. Eddie Douglas’ favorite lure, performed admirably in the surf. Goodbye, Mr. Eddie. I enjoy tossing bottom water or a soft cheap. Spoons catch bass and reflect the sunlight very well. Spanish fish enjoy them. They’ll undoubtedly extend your collection.
The best tides are always those that are coming on because they bring in fresh water. On a receding sea, I have caught fish, but certainly not as well. A trip to the second oil rig can be beneficial for redfish and fish for those who are feeling adventurous.
This time of year, there are numerous opportunities to find bass. God thank you as you enjoy your time on the water this summer.
