Port O'Connor Fishing Report, September 24, 2006
Catching took a beating the last few days ahead of the cold front. Winds were sucking up to a sustained 38 knots at times. Thursday, 9/21/06 I broke from the Redfishing to take a look at the Trout situation. With winds pushing 20 knots we managed a pretty decent “Jail Break” with 14 Trout to 18”; 7 Redfish to 27”; 10 Drum to 20”; and 4 Goats to garbage can lid size (released). With a ton of water in the bays, we found our best bite on the leeward side of shell reefs in SAB. This required anchoring windward with the edge of the boat approaching the top of the reefs while throwing across the breakwater to the backside. We fished windward with little luck and it looked like the fish were laying behind the break ambushing shrimp and other forage being pushed across the shell by the wind.
