    East Matagorda 3-6-04

    Myself and two friends put the water taxi in at lindas marina on caney creek yesterday and got underway at 0600 and made our way to the southshoreline with intentions to wade.With light winds and a partly cloudy day things looked promising. About halfway acroos the bay we notice that the wind is picking up a bit and blowing directly on the southshoreline and opted to instead drift a couple of reefs adjacent to the shoreline. From 0645 to shortly before 1000 the three of us caught and released 19 trout from 16" to 28",yes 28"!!!It was a trip not soon forgotten.The bite literally shut down just before 1000 as the wind picked up pretty good,so we headed back to Linda marina for a burger and a beer,loaded up and came home

    Thanks for the reply here Ben,We had a camera on board but it must have gotten bounced a little to much on the choppy ride aqcross the bay cause when we stopped for a photo op the dern thing was deader than a door nail. It was really hard to not keep'em for some after shots with another camera but 80% of these trout were females full of eggs and we couldnt bring ourselves to box'em. It's okay though I know where there at and will be back on em next weekend with a better protected and more durable camera.
