Fishing Report 1/8/2022 - Not Many Redheads, A Handful Of Keeper Trout, And A Few Reds
This past weekend we had a squad of folks head down to fish and duck hunt in Port Aransas/Aransas Pass. The weather didn't cooperate, with lots of heavy fog and rain causing the ducks to stay low. Low visibility impeded ducks from finding spreads. Not many birds were shot, and those that were shot randomly flew over the spread and were taken by pass shooting.
The fishing was slow in the morning and picked up gradually throughout the day. Wade fishing produced a handful of keeper trout each day with lots of undersized trout mixed in. Only a couple of redfish were caught during the entire weekend. Bait was plentiful over grass pockets. It seemed like trout were in waste deep water and ambushing bait in sand potholes. All in all - the key was to find the mixed sand-grass flats and fish depths of about 3 feet. Move often until you find the fish and then plant your feet and keep hammering the area where you caught that first fish. Where there's one, there's many! Fish were caught on natural colors with a few caught on dark colors during overcast days.
