East Matagorda Bay fishing spots

Where to catch fish around Sargent Texas? Spring fishing on incoming tides around East Matagorda Bay. Good tides this weekend for fishing Caney Creek, Sargent Beach and Bay.

Sargent gets large inflow of water to East Matagorda Bay because it is located at Michells Cut.  The cut provides the most direct flow of fresh salt water into the East Matagorda Bay. Most of the delivery of the salt water takes place along the intracoastal canals and the reefs that are  adjacent or close to them.

Please realize that large drum and Trout are spawning now. If you catch any really large drum or trout please release them because they are not good to eat and really are helping to re-populate the drum population. Snap and upload and release the fish.

Bait: Use fresh dead shrimp or finger mullet for bait.

Plastics: Pumpkin seed Bass Assassin, Wood Pecker Bass Assassins

Here are some great places to fish today and this spring.
