Greetings Fishermen,

This is my first time to post on Texas Fishing Forum and I am excited to give you a weekly fishing report from the San Luis Pass area near Galveston, Texas.

I have extensive experience kayak fishing for Trout, Redfish and Flounder in Galveston and surrounding waters year round using both live bait and artificial lures. I am certified by the ACA and Texas Parks and Wildlife as a licensed coastal waters kayak fishing guide and love getting out on the water with family and friends.

For this week's report, I would like to tell you about recent Flounder fishing in the San Luis Pass area and what to expect for the later part of August and early September. The best flounder fishing of the year is about a two to three week window in November when larger numbers of Flounder are pushing toward the Gulf to migrate. The second best time is when the fall migration begins - actually, before fall. The first stage of Flounder migration takes place in late August and early September and fishing at the Pass over the last few weeks is evidence this year will follow closely along.

I caught these beauties at the end of the morning incoming tide in about eight to ten feet of water about a quarter mile from shore fishing a deep gut using Gulp Manta Shrimp on an eight ounce head. The bite was aggressive and thankfully my fishing partner helped me land all four fish. When you are fishing deep waters it's always helpful to have a man/woman on the net.

Nice work Steve.

Most don't realize that it's starting already. A lot of fish still back in the marsh and I bet those guys you caught are resident pass fish don't you think?
