Trip Initiator: Michael Emshoff - Date Has been moved to Sunday October 13
Trip Description: >Ft. Anahuac is on Trinity Bay. Last year, we caught trout under birds. Reds have been caught in the marsh and around the islands and on the flats. Flounder should be on the flats working bait slowly. There is a deep cut in front of the islands to the marsh that boats will be motoring though, I would recommend to stay clear.
Watch the tides because we launch on the flats across the parking lot. You will have firm footing in the bay. But be cautious of soft mud.
