Gear up for some great saltwater fishing

Lone Star Outdoor News

A rainy June is expected to keep water temps low and coastal fishing hot.

On a recent fishing trip at the coast, Captain Nathan Beabout said the fishing was great at every stop, with sizable fish to be had.

“Most of our fish were caught over thigh-deep grass and shell-mud,” he said. “They did however, seem to be a little picky about the colored plastics today.”

Down South Lures in pumpkinseed worked the best, while a few fish were caught on strawberry wine. The most aggressive bite happened between 10 a.m. – noon.

Fishing should be fantastic this month. With steady rainfall predictions each week for the month of June, bay water temperatures should remain below normal.

“I believe this triggers more of a feed when water temps stay cool and keeps more fish holding up between knee and thigh deep,” Beabout said.

Surf fishing could work out as well, depending on the wind forecast.

“One thing is for sure, we will have plenty of places to chase fish during the month of June,” he said.
