029 JGF, Texas Two Step: Baffin Bay and Matagorda Bay
This week we learn how to fish the legendary Baffin Bay and the magical Matagorda Bay systems along the Texas Coastal Bend. Captain Aubrey Black and Captain Hollis Forrester share there expertise in fishing these amazing waters of Texas.
Captain Aubrey Black
“The only hard structures within the bay are 2 types; first you have the rocks and second, the lower units lying next to the rocks. “When the reds start schooling up there like major lawn movers down there in the grass and get all the crabs and shrimp scooped up”. Fishing Baffin Bay the last 7 years Captain Black has been well known for the trophy trout catches as well as his clients in this unique bay. Wade fishing the rocks, grass and shallows for redfish and speckled trout. www.captblack.com
Captain Hollis Forrester
In Matagorda Hollis focusses on the sandy grassy flats while wade fishing in about 3 feet of water. “Fall winter and springtime we focus on the big hogs (Trout), that the beauty of Matagorda bay right there!” I asked Hollis if he ever had his boat drift away from him while wade fishing? “I left my anchor untied one time and while wade fishing I looked back and see my boat gone. It was probly the worst time I’ve ever had and it was dark and thank goodness that a craber was going back home at the time and he was nice enough to stop and pick me up and go lookin for boat boat.” www.capthollisforrester.com
