Fishing Report 04/09/2018

South Padre Island, TX 

 

Well we never really got out to the jetties for our Sheephead this past March due to the winds.  I know a lot of anglers did well from the jetties.  Overall March was not that great of a fishing month for a lot of anglers.  April should be a great month for trout. We currently have schools of Ballyhoo moving into our bay system and are finding the bigger trout working underneath the birds. Lots of smaller trout are coughing up small shrimp.  Look for your color changes west of long bar, north of Duncan house and out in front Of the buildings on the island.  South East Gas well is holding good numbers of trout along the drop and color change.  Reds are also starting to show up in the same area. DOA Shrimps and 4” jerk shads are working well under corks.  The east side grass flats have been bare the last two week, I’m seeing hardly any signs of life.South end of Rattlesnake along the spoils are holding good numbers of reds as is the dirty waters in Cullens.  Cut bait is working well for us. Afternoon in South bay has been productive for the reds.  Expect windy conditions and and lots of fish as our spring continues to roll in!
