I wade fished with Mike Kalil, his brother, Mark, and their friend Dave D'Andrea this morning. Mike lives in Brenham and has been itching to come down to Galveston Bay and exclusively wade fish with topwaters for trout and reds. His timing was great because the recent rainfall has cooled the bay down enough to where some of the fish have migrated back to the shorelines.

We arrived at our first spot around 6:45 AM to find trout slicks and bait literally everywhere, so we jumped out of the boat armed with topwaters. The bite was not very aggressive at first because of the high barometric pressure, but before long we were getting blow-up after blow- up. Between the 4 of us we must have gotten 40 blow ups, but not many hook-ups. Typically, when this happens we switch over to sub-surface lures like soft plastics or Corkys. Well, we did that, but only caught a couple of trout. I think the trout just didn't want to feed all that much and we were just agitating them with the loud topwaters.

We managed to grind out 10 solid trout to 24 inches (4.6 lbs.) before moving on to our second spot. There, Dave worked a school of reds and managed to trick one into eating his Super Spook Jr. On our way in we worked some birds picking up 4 more trout before heading to the ramp. Most of the trout were caught on She Pups and She Dogs with a few being caught on Dark colored Bass Assassins. Most of the trout were over 20 inches and very healthy. It was a beautiful October-like morning and everyone had a great time.
