Bay Flats Lodge on San Antonio Bay
Capt. Chris Martin
For the remainder of June, look for fishing conditions to probably begin to repeat themselves on an almost daily basis. We can undoubtedly expect to see definite alterations in the daily tides, and we can be most assured that we will experience distinct changes in wind direction, not to mention varying wind speeds. Additionally, this month also marks a distinguishable time of the year for everyday rising water temperatures.
All of these variables, sometimes undergoing multiple changes throughout the course of any one given day, makes June a difficult time for wading anglers to figure out what the fish will be doing. It will be hard for anglers to determine exactly what time of the day the fish will become active, and folks will also become painfully aware of the fact that just because they caught fish yesterday in any one particular spot may not hold true for today’s outing – the fish may not always be there tomorrow. Because of this fluctuation, anglers will find it important to be out on the water as early in the morning as possible. Reasons for this are many, but one of the main ones is that you should always try to beat anyone else to your initial target spot. This will, hopefully, give you a chance to stake your claim at your intended wading spot early in the day.
In your approach to wading spots this month, attempt to locate shorelines and lake areas that contain plenty of trout-green water and an ample amount of visible bait activity in the immediate vicinity. Artificial enthusiasts may have already recognized substantial success on the surface by the time June rolls around, but if you don’t happen to draw many strikes on top, proceed to a little bit deeper water and begin working a sub-surface walker or a twitch-bait above open water sand and grass beds. As stated earlier, June can sometimes be a tough month for figuring-out everything. However, relying on no one else but yourself to determine what works, and what doesn’t, makes this month even that much more enjoyable. Just remember to keep grindin’!
