Fishing Report - February 1, 2011by Capt. Bill Baldus on 01/31/11
I just returned from a week long duck & goose hunting trip to Arkansas with Dale Spartas on a photo shoot for a couple of outdoor magazines, so no fishing until yesterday. And yes, the hunting is incredible.
Just when we get some warm weather it seems another cold front comes through and drops the water temperature again. Yesterday Gretchen and I hit a couple of the outside points exploring and looking for fish but found few with no good shots. We did, however, see some baitfish in a few of the areas we stopped at -- a good sign. The water was clear but the south wind blowing at a steady 15 knots limited the spots we could fish.
Other captains in the area are reporting a few nice reds, good numbers of smaller reds and trout in the holes and grass flats. We have some upcoming trips this week and will keep you posted.
