Outing Chat / June in the West Bay Marsh
« Last post by docarie on July 05, 2014, 10:39:28 AM »
I fished in various south shore marshes for 16 days of the 30 days in June. The 14 days I stayed home was due to unfavorably high wind, family logistical complications, health issues, and other assorted bummer, lame excuses.  Caught 17 slot size redfish during June.  Was skunked on 5 of the days.  On the best day of the month, June 21, caught 5 slot size reds.  The largest red caught during this month was a beautiful 28".  I don't keep any records on undersize reds caught, fish hooked and mysteriously coming unhooked, or fish hooked and then lost due to various amateurish mistakes.

All in all I would say that fishing in the south shore marshes in June 2014 was somewhat better than a comparable time period in June 2013.  There is some very interesting phenomena occuring in some of the south shore marshes.  Increasingly since the Ike storm there is more grass, vegetation, and clear water appearing.  Also the marsh reconstruction projects accomplished over the past 12 years in the areas around Starvation Cove, Pirates Beach, State Park, Jamaica Beach Jumbile Cove, and Sea Isle have created a fantastic redfish estuary. 

July has started off very good.  Have fished on 3 days and caught a total of 3 reds.

Hope to see you out there some day.

So much marsh, so little time.

Hello Flyakker...

Welcome! Sounds like you're ready to join the fun! Looking forward to meeting and fishing with you. Always a fly fishing event on the calendar, both saltwater and fresh, and once you get that project boat complete I'm sure you'll never lack for friends!

Seriously, take a look at the outings and jump in! Best way there is to meet and get engaged.

Happy 4th, everyone! Looking forward to learning a great deal more! I have a small 15 foot bayrunner w/ and 85 outboard that I am restoring. It is still in project mode, but will be storing it near League City. Also, ready to pull the trigger on a yak! I am here to learn, and later to help others learn. I love fly fishing. I have two poles, a 5 wt TFO, and a 9 wt Reddington. I like fresh and saltwater fishing.

I am also a tech nerd, and I am in IT as a network engineer for a hospital.

Random fly fact: The first fish I caught was a bass in Houston, TX near the Galleria. I was practice casting in a retention pond of of 610. (I released the little bugger, don't worry!) I thought maybe a turtle had grabbed my line.
You say'n you need a ride? :o

I think posting the date & details clearly on the lead post will help. I know it's on the title. Also, sending out some emails wouldn't be a bad idea. Get Golden, our publicity director to do an email blast.

 I might be up for the trip and I may talk Tracy into it as well. Need to know where exactly on the river we are fishing.

This place was suggested, ( ) to me and may offer what you are thinking of?  You could even work in some fishing on the Blanco.  It's only about a half hour west of where we will be fishing on the San Marcos.  I think they have some smaller cabins that would accommodate our group.  I have not checked availability at this place.  So far, I am the only one signed-up to go on this outing.

If we can get a few more commitements, I say we book a room or 2.


You mis-identified that fly. That's a beendowni10inthesummerstuckinmyradiator fly.  It is usually fished with a "windshield splat bait" dropper or if you are fishing with Hank, a hopper dropper. It can be very productive with the right technique.

Just sayin
