Fishing Report:


San Antonio Redfish


Author: Fred PEREZ

As Temp's Rise So Does The Redfish Action



As the weather warms in South Texas located in San Antonio there are two power plant lakes. One is Victor Braunig the other Calaveras.  We turn our attention to fresh water Red Drum. As the temperature rises so does the action.  

"Catching redfish throughout the day is not uncommon if you can stand the Texas Heat!"

Reds are common in the 30+ range both from bank and the boat.  The fish love the cooler water so they are found a little deeper and their attention is gearing up for the mock spawning,  since fresh water red drum can't reproduce.  

The feeding frenzie begins as their favorite source of food becomes abundant, talapia and shad. The reds also get a taste for crawfish and dead shrimp but even fish bites or our reliable Yeh Monn works just as well. 

" Its not uncommon to see one rod after another bend as a school makes its way past you."

If your on a boat.. rattle traps and spoons will do the trick, trolling in deeper water.  The fish like staying in 15+ feet of water and usually enjoy making runs either first thing in the morning or late evening through the night, but catching throughout the day is not uncommon if you can stand that Texas heat. 

We use a,modified version of a Carolina rig.  You put a 3 way swivel on top with a 4 to 5 oz sinker on top with the hook 12 to 14 inches from to the bottom.  Its not uncommon to see one rod after another bend as a school makes its way past you.  Please follow all your Texas Parks & Wildlife limits and regulations and take a kid fishing...
