Winters on the upper Texas Gulf Coast can be equally compared to… nothing that I can think of!  We can have a February day that is in the low to mid 80s and two days later temperatures dive into the 40’s or lower.  The windows of opportunity for fishing during the winter months are great when taken advantage of.  This is a great time of year to be fishing in the Back Lakes and Bays of Freeport, Texas.  Speckled trout, red fish, flounder, sheepshead, drum and more are all on our target list during this time of year. 

Chocolate Bay, Christmas Bay, and Bastrop Bays are all in great shape.  Water clarity is good, and our Freeport Texas Fishing Guides have been catching good numbers of solid speckled trout with some very nice slot red fish mixed in.  For clients that prefer to wade fish – soft plastics and topwaters are both working well.  On our Freeport Texas Fishing Charters with clients that prefer to stay in the boat, we are using live shrimp and live mullet drifting over deep oyster reefs. 

This is a great time of year to enjoy a day on the Bays of Freeport, Texas.  Our Freeport Family Fishing Charters are very kid friendly.  With our Fishing & Lodging specials for the month of February – you cant beat a weekend vacation here on the Upper Texas Gulf Coast.
