Yamaha’s 190 FSH was featured on the cover (image attached), and inside, the magazine wrote a four-page story about the 210 FSH. “Yamaha, over the years, has evolved a wide-open spaces concept at the stern to create a comfortable back porch and made it even cushier for folks who like to flip a frog.” “The […]
Texas Saltwater Fishing News
Take a little trip to Valley Forge in January. Hold a musket ball in your fingers and imagine it piercing your flesh and breaking a bone or two. There won’t be a doctor or trainer to assist you until after the battle, so just wait your turn. Take your cleats and socks off to get […]

Hurricane Harvey devastated the Port Aransas Fire Department leaving it without a single fire truck and many of the firefighters have […]

November 29, 2002 — Fall is Here Fishing has improved over last week. Redfish are in West Bay, trout can be found along the East Ridges and Flounder are showing up in the East Cut. Bone and Chartruse TTKs worked the best. Slow your retrieve as slow as possible and pay close attention for a […]
March 15, 2006 — Quit Teasing! Finally get to feel the bottom! After the winter doldrums and stinky waders, spent most of the week wet wading the shallow stuff. With temperatures flirting with 100 degrees and a number of days in the mid nineties, the water temperature has hit the mid 70's a couple of […]
April 10, 2005 — Please Send Water!!!!!!! With tides remaining more than 1 foot low we are still fighting a losing battle for clear water. Winds from the north at 30 then from the south at 30 they continue to plague us with super dirty water. What little brown tide we have is secondary to […]
May 29, 2003 — Nutter Butter Cookies, Chips Ahoy and Ye Haw had the pleasure to fish a friend and his six-year-old son yesterday. It’s amazing how one is put in their place when conditions are right and you can stand back and see the big picture. More about this later. Due to Rocky only […]
September 05, 2006 — Up For Air? Big Breathe! That's much better. We took a well deserved long Labor Day weekend off to catch up with old correspondences, boat repairs, body repairs (to ourselves), and generally catch up with Lodge business and maintenance. After three hard months of summer time fishing, our favorite time of […]
August 8, 2005 — WOW, WHAT A WEEK After a week of none stop running it was nice to rest today. I must say last week I had the pleasure to fish TWO different groups of father and YOUNG SONS!!!! Ages were 6 to 13 but that did not stop them from hard-core fishing. It […]

Thanks for the heads up, I feel your e-mail was actually quite on time. If you get down here feel free to stop by! Oh! By the way, I.P.Addresses are easy to track the […]
Thanks Capt Bruce Capt, Bruce and I borrowed Capt. Brandon's boat for a couple of days scouting and a little fishing 4/27-28. Learned somenew areas and caught my best trout to date, 29 1/4″, 8 1/4 lbs. Also fished in Feb and did very well. Great spring. Just wanted to say thanks. had a great […]
You Know Sergio!? — June 11, 2007 The past week was a shortish, longish week. Greatish, poorish fishing. Consistently inconsistent yet inconsistently consistent. In a nutshell, the week was a mixed bag of fishing conditions and weather conditions. Trout would one day slam tops only to shun them the next. Nail a particular color one […]
Re: Flatstalker boats I have also thought about getting one. My understanding is that a 2 person model will be offered in the future, it may already be available. I would only get one with a trolling motor–paddlng long distance in this craft seems impractical compared to a kayak. However, standing up to fish is […]
Re: Pop Gets Wake Up Call! Capt. Bruce, don't know you but very glad you are doing good. Good you are back on water, just don't over do it. Very good thing all are doing for Capt. Wooten. Take care and God Bless 🙂pawpawfishes AKA Edgar Floyd
Really Old Man Happy Birthday DAD!!! Guess Hemmingway was right, The OLD Man and the Sea Have a good one today!!!
Re: Really Old Man I have this saying about birtthdays….How old would you be if you didn't know how old you were??? I think a lot of us fisherman unconciously think that way,,,that is what keeps us young. Bruce really hope you had a great day! As fall approaches I am counting down the days […]
West Shoreline I was wondering about the west shoreline debris after the huricane. We came down right after the huricane last August and there were many posts sticking out of the water. Thanks, Ricky.

I FOUND CARP! Alright, Most of you know due to health reasons I had to get a 'real' job. Shaping the minds of our future generations is a scary proposition but has it's rewards. Landlocked and 60 miles from the nearest saltwater I WAS waking up every morning depressed and ready to runaway further south […]
Re: spots to wade fish 100koutsSorry for being so late in posting a reply, but with our loss of Capt. Dan Coley and fishing everyday just not much computer time. To answer your question there are actually two locations you can wade fish from the bank here in port. As I am a 2 fingered […]
Where To Start Hello Everyone, Just wondering if i can get some pointers and advice about how to fish with the water temperatures still being a lil cool. I fished this past weekend and i did manage to catch some keeper fish but it was sorta slow. I also had a lot of misses on […]
Re: Captain Dan Coley on Calmer Seas I was lucky enough to fish with Capt. Dan a single time and caught a limit of redfish in the first 15 minutes. Heaven is blessed by a great guide and man. My condolensces to his family and friends. Wes Pullen
The Good Old Days + 14 Pound Trout — May 8, 2008 Sorry for the late report, but fishing everyday this old FART just doesn’t feel like sitting on keyboard at the end of the day. The attached photo has been lost for a long time but I just recently found it and thought it […]
Re: Everyone BE SURE TO WISH the kid Happy B- Day Thanks for everything Pop! The real gift arrrives in November. LoveB
Re: to wet for comfort!! chasintailSorry for the late reply. Just not much computer time. The rain is GREAT!!!! for the bay. Other than the back of the slough near the mouth of the Old Arroya with all the run off the rain does very little to displace the trout. The reds will head right […]
Ike Refugees Shirley and my prayers go out to all who are about to get a visit from Ike. Anyone needing a shelter is welcome here. We are not totally complete with repairs but you will have a plastic roof over your head and power. Just call us so we can be ready for you. […]

Re: Saturday Trip Adam151The public pier has not been repaired as of yet, but you can walk around the fence at the north side of Port. Just do not walk back into the ranch land, stay on the sand along the waters edge. Community bar is a short distance north, should be lots of folks […]
Re: Tackle… Storage Lesher, try the Simms Dry Creek Bag. I love mine and it is completely waterproof. I have lost it over board twice and found it floating safely before getting reeled back in. It is pricy but it is the last dry bag you will have to buy. As far as the 'worm' […]
Re: The Return of Poppie’s Pink Posse! (Captain Sally’s Women’s Retreat 2/09) Moore pics…
Fishing along a shoreline Would this be a good time to fish along the shorlines due to all this high winds that are howling through P.M.? Would fishing along the shorlines as well help me with throwing some topwaters and be effective on catching some fish? If not would be a good bait to throw […]
Re: need flounder tips/location I like 3/4oz egg sinker above a swival with a short leader 8″ a 0/3 flounder hook vmc makes them tipped with a finger mullet . cast under or by fishing piers and bring it slow very slow you will feel tap tap on your line let him take it and […]
Re: windy wades!! ChasinTAILDon’t worry about your mud trial. That just validates you are fishing slow and covering all the available structure in front of you. With our spring time winds you CAN’T stir up any more mud than Mother Nature. Again thanks for supporting our forum.LaterBruce
Re: Inshore Fishing South of the Border Thanks to everyone who has replied. Jimmykey – that's what i'm talking about! Sounds like at least some of the coastline falls into the pristine, untouched category. Good luck in August, and please let us know how it goes!
Inshore fishing south of the border Capt. Shuler, I read the post on Inshore fishing down south, I google earthed it and it looks like something that would be cool to try. If any one gets a trip together I would be interested. Do you know if a boat can be put in down there […]
Re: TOPWATERS i will agree…. and they work great in some wind…. i caught 5 25 inch trout in febuary/march on that big ol plug… all caught and released!! thought i might add that!!… its a heavy one to throw through!! but worth it!! stopped throwing that big sucker and havent caught another 25 inch […]
Re: Thieves!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! cahsintailsLet me speak with the MAN and I will e-mail you their mobile phone numbers. I don't think they would like them posted on a web site. Thanks for your help. It only going to get better.LaterBruce
Re: Getting Back to the water Chatter baits in the smaller size work well on the reds. Don't forget small top watrs. Spook jrs. Give me a call and I can discuss it in more detail. Too much to type for a two fingered typist.LaterBruce
face masks I see a lot of persons with them on on the water. where can I find one . They look like they would really would help protect you from the sun.
Re: Kingfish If you're not going out to the shrimp boats for ling, you have to find structure. Ling are an incredibly structure oriented fish: unless on the rare chance you sneak up on an ocean running school. In all my offshore experience, that's only happened once for me. Kingfish: well, you're on the right […]
Paige and Tarpon Bubba ( that's the first and last time I will use that as you requested) what a wonderful story and great picture of Paige and her Tarpon,. I guess that will fix the old guys wagon,,,tarpon off of the pier,,,beats Brandon's snook any day. Can't wait to get down there and congratulate […]

Re: Shark!!! I caught a small 2' hammerhead off the pier back in April.
Re: Navigation LeshSorry but there is no real good map of the Lower laguna madre. Just stay away from the edges of the East Cut only place we have oysters. Most other areas, worst you will run up on a mud or sand flat. Just read the water, Less waves means SHALLOW WATER!!!!!!!LaterBruce
