Rockport Fishing Report – April 4, 2019

The Rockport Fishing Report is improving every day. As the waters of Aransas Bay begin to water up we are seeing an increase in the fishing activity. The Gulf Menhaden (small bait fish) run has started and these little 3 to 5 inch fish are flooding through the jetties at Port Aransas.  Millions of these menhaden will move into the bays around Rockport and Port Aransas. They are inshore to feed on the abundant plankton in the bays. The redfish and speckled trout are moving to meet them. There have been some tremendous catches this spring. Jon and Linda from California joined me for a couple days of fishing. The redfish did not let us down. They were able to take some fillets home to enjoy with some good California wine.
