Going to matagorda for the first time. Will be fishing off the bank is there any place that I might be able to catch some fish to bring back home for the family to eat. Would be targeting the tx slam but I would take any good table fair fish I could get.

How would I fish in matagorda? Should I fish live shrimp under a cork or some type of cut bait or dead shrimp on the bottom.

Any information would be very helpful to help me plan my trip to matagorda

Thanks and God bless

Matagorda Bay Nature Park has three fishing piers (two of them with lights, not sure about the third) and the jetties. As far as your bait choices, either one would work. Take two rods and fish one with a float and one on the bottom and see what works that day. Good luck!

Fish the piers on an incoming tide. Clean water and lots of school trout. Outgoing will be dirty water and where you were catching trout before will only be 6 inches deep.
