First cold front promises solid fall catches

Solid redfish were caught this week. Autumn has a way of producing the brightest of orange colors for shrimp-eating red drum.


North winds blew, thermometers dropped, windows opened and everyone smiled. Tides receded, waters cooled and the fish went nuts.

“It was a good week,” said guide Lee Warmke of Matagorda . “There were trout and redfish everywhere in the bay and we caught limits on most mornings.”
