Well, ... it's that time of year.

The ol' saltH2O is now comfortable to wade fish w/o waders.

Feet wet at Location #16 in my book just a bit before sunrise with 10 -12 mph winds and the moon was still up in the western sky.

Incoming tide, after some decent rain the past 2 days, had the trout bite aggressive and consistent.

3 limits by 9 am and left'em biting.

Trout I cleaned had eggs ripe with eminent blood veins, so a trout spawn is on the horizon.

Sounds good Texasredneck70. We will take good care of you, ... call me anytime: 361-727-5355

Wade fished Location #8 in my WadeFish Rockport© book looking for some redfish this morning and found trout and reds running together.

High tide is moving good the past 2 mornings from 7 - 9 am.

Yes Safetyman15, I still arrange guided charters.

Basically, you can get two 'guides' with our service, I have another Capt. run the boat so I can do a better job of coaching and teaching, while giving better service and spending more time with our customers.

This works well on guided wade fishing trips so I can service the wade anglers in the water, take some awesome "action" pictures of our customers catching fish with my waterproof camera and the other Capt. can maneuver the boat and come get us so it's not a long wade back to the boat.

Cost is the same, ... just less work for me.

SafetyMan15 I was one of the 1st TP&W Licensed Guides to have a web site back in 1999. My Dad had his USCG Capt. License and we had a blast teaching kids to grandparents how to catch fish with live bait or lures.

When I got my USCG Capt.'s License back in 2003, I also put the Rockport Rattler jigs on the market, got the US Patent on them in 2009 and now they are sold coast to coast in most Academy's ... and as a result my guiding business picked up with word of mouth referrals that I eventually let the expense of that web site go.

Thank you for asking, and I may add the service I offer to my WadeFish Rockport web site.

I'll send you a PM with our summer rates.

Trout scouting early this morning at one of my locations in the WadeFish Rockport© book and I noticed that incoming tide wasn't as strong as it had been the last few days.

Bite was early - strung my 1st trout before daybreak and had a limit by 8:30 am.

In fact, I had 3 keeper trout my 1st 5 casts - then the bite slowed considerably.

Trout for supper with the Rockets playoff game tonight.

When ya promise your wife a 'Trout Fry' for Mother's Day - ya better make sure ya catch some trout.

My son & I had the "Mission" accomplished by 9:22 am this morning ... bring on lunch time, I sure am hungry.

Weatherman forecasted light 5-6 mph SE winds and they were 12 - 15 at sunrise.

Moon set was at ~9:30 am.

Good incoming tidal movement was around 8 am and the trout were riding it.

Slow bite to start, but the finish was fast and furious until the moon set.

Casual morning fishing since it was 7 am before we got our feet wet today.

Hammered the trout for 2 1/2 today hours with 1 in every 4 or 5 being keepers ... solid continuous trout action for 2 1/2 hours and had to fight off a school of porpoises that kept trying to raid our catch while we were trying to keep fishing.

It just added to the FUN !!!

Also caught some redfish and drum that didn't make the stringer today.

Incoming tide didn't start moving good until around 8 am.

... left'em biting to clean what we had strung ... I was wore out !!!

Well, ... who needs a $35,000 boat or a $500 guide to catch a limit of trout when the WadeFish Rockport© Book & DVD can clue you into where the the fish are before you get there.

Simply following the tide/moon phase/season Locations Tide/Moon Phase Chart in the book, we picked another location today just to see what was up with the trout bite at that location.

Stringing trout at daybreak, we hammered the trout again with some excellent non-stop action until we had our trout limits.

Tide wasn't moving as good this morning as it was Thursday, but that didn't matter !!!

Using Pink/WildEye and/or Glow/RedEye Rockport Rattler jigs I invented .... and Pearl 3" Gulp! shrimp we bagged 2 trout limits.

One of the two biggest trout today hit that the Gulp!! even though it's tail was bitten off, just solid trout action .. didn't need to rig a fresh Gulp! on it !!!

Nice mess of trout filets today to help save on the grocery bill.
wink

Went from grass beds back to shell trying another location in the WadeFish Rockport© and wasn't disappointed.

Good trout action again today - also caught and released 17" reds all morning long.

Rex, II and I strung our trout limit again today, with some decent trout in the mix. Had our trout limits by 8:30 am and tried to get a keeper red but none made it to 20".

Bring on supper with my iron skillet and my new Skillet Grilled Trout Recipe !!!
