Fishing in Rockport Remains Consistent

In spite of an unusually windy May and start to June, the fishing has remained relatively consistent here in Rockport.  The good redfishing we had up until mid-May has slowed significantly, but the trout fishing has picked up the slack and a lot of boxes of 19-21 inch fish have hit the dock.  It has been a while since we have had any meaningful rain, but we are still in a surplus situation for 2012 and expect some more later this week.

The good news about the wind is that it has kept us off the mid-bay reefs throughout Copano, Aransas, and San Antonio bays which means the fish populations there have remained untouched for most of the spring.  This will translate to great fishing in July and August when the winds will be lighter and we can get to these fish.  That is traditionally time to get out to the gulf surf when weather permits, and for those of you who have been there it does not get any more exciting than that.

Remember that because Rockport’s climate is influenced by the Gulf, we rarely see daytime highs exceeding 93 degrees, a far cry from the 110 often found during these months in Houston, Dallas, and San Antonio.  Get out of the city for a couple of days and hit the bays with us, it might be the most fun you have all summer.
