The past couple of weeks have been hot and cold on the catches of salt water fish.  It has all been driven by the weather which is no secret this time of year.  Days of blowing cold rain and wind followed calm warm sunshine has been the norm of late.  South Texas weather is usually like this in February with some years being much colder and others being unusually pleasant-pleasant has been the norm this year.  The fish respond to these changes by yo-yoing from shallow hard sand to deeper soft mud bottoms in order to roll with the water temperature changes and survive it day by day, heck the water temps now are in the 70s.  Wade fishing with lures has been the ticket to success more days than not.  Catches of solid Speckled Trout have almost been a given while Redfish have made an appearance too.  I have heard of more redfish lately that were a bit less in length than the legal minimum and those are a fun battle.  March is upon us and here we go with Spring so get out and enjoy all our bays have to offer.
