Port O'Connor Fishing Report, June 27, 2006
Port O’Connor Fishing Report, June 27, 2006
Hopefully, we are getting close to some stability in the weather. After the storms of last week, with the Low Pressure “sitting and spinning” over the Texas Gulf Coast, one thing I can say for certain is that “everyday is a new day” unfortunately. While San Antonio Bay picked up some fresh water, it is not “flood water” as the San Antonio area did not get hammered like we did. There isn’t any big push of water coming down the Guadalupe River. However, the freshwater from local runoff has added some new dimensions to fishable waters and some concentrations of fish have moved. We picked up an immediate South wind coming off the storms which has been followed by a slick off on the bays and now we are looking at WNW to NE to E winds pushing 20 knots. That will keep you on your toes for sure. Since late last week when we were able to get back on the water we have managed half to full limits coming out of the bays. I left the ramp Sunday with a North wind pushing 20 and my customer mentioned “hey, this North wind is probably going to make things pretty tough, isn’t this bad for fishing”? My response was something new that I’ve learned and that is “it is what it is”. Actually, we limited about 11:30 with 30 Trout. On this day, the North wind was good for us and good for “catching”. The lesson here is that “right now I couldn’t tell you what means good fishing and what means bad fishing”. That’s pretty common when “everday is a new and different day”.
While things in the bays are not quite back to normal, the surf is reportedly on fire from Port O to Port A.
