My good buddy and long time shooting partner, (Josh Ruby with North Texas Rifle Precision) and I made a spur of the moment trip down to Matagorda over the weekend for some red and trout fishing. Our deep sea charter was cancelled at the last minute the day before due to weather, so we booked a bay fishing trip with Coach Floyd with Knee Deep Fishing Guide Service. Coach Floyd was great, and I highly recommend his service. We limited out on reds, and caught 2 keeper trouts. We caught a lot of little one's of everything.

Best video of the trip - HERE! !!

Here's our "fishing shack" on the water. I have been coming to this location since college. A good college buddy of mine owns it. The dock on the end is the prime night fishing location for plunking some reds and trout.



Video of some fishing:

Big 8# Red, 26" long. We were already limited out, so we had to let this monster go!

Awesome Chad!

Y'all must not have had any bananas on the boat. I learned last week in Cabo that bananas are bad luck when fishing, in Mexico at least. I've been on 10+ deep sea trips, caught all kinds of tuna, mahi mahi, wahoo and a 291# blue marlin and never knew bananas were bad luck until Humberto (first mate) saw mine and threw it overboard. I'll never make that mistake again.

Yes, big time!!! You ever watch Wicked Tuna? They had an episode where another fisherman stashed bananas all around another boat. It was funny.

Most charter captains are serious about not having bananas on the boat. I had a captain make me take off a Banana Republic shirt. I thought that was a little overboard but it's was his boat so I complied.

Nice fish. I've been doing a lot of reading on Matagorda...I usually go to Port A, but I want to stay a little further south next time. And Matagorda and that area seems like it would suit me just fine.

Crap, I just realized, I meant Mansfield, Port Mansfield. I want to check out Port Mansfield...sorry, lol.

Shhh!!!! That’s my spot! Been going to Port O for a while fishing the bay. Trip earlier this summer we limited on reds and trout by about 10 in the morning. Check out the info on matagorda island. One thing I remember is the ridiculous rattlesnake population there.
