Trip Description:

If you have never fished Port O' Connor before, you are truely in for a wonderful fishing spot.  The water typically is the pretty color we wish to see when fishing but can't because we fish the Galveston/Surfside area where that water is brackish.  The fishery is quite unique.  There is an abundance of fish there.  Aside from catching red fish, trout, and flounder; there is a chance of catching fish such as jack crevalle, spanish mackerel, and more.  

Sometimes I do use live croaker/shrimp, but most of the time I am using artificial.  If you are using artificial, some of the things that work well are:

*  soft plastics (rig for weedless)

*  spoons

*  popping corks

*  gulp

*  soft plastic w/ blades

*  crank baits

*  just about anything you would throw elsewhere works here

As you are fishing, don't be surprised if you see a dolphin show.  They show up quite frequently and sometimes they like to jump.  Other things you will see are a manta ray go airborn.  Schools of jacks will come in shallow thrashing the bait.  Be ready to thow into those with anything if you want a great fight!

Launch time is at 6:00 am.  The launch fee is $5.00.  The Fishing Center opens at 5:00  am.  If you are buying bait, be sure to get there right as they open.  If they have a tournament going on that day, you don't want to be in the back of the line.  If you have any questions, feel free to call me.  832-588-7091
