Made a couple trips to upper trinity bay this week and last week -- did pretty good first pic was this week and killed the reds -- limited out in probably 30 mins and spent rest of day throwing away nice keepers -- did not catch one spec or flounder though -- finally got tired of throwing keeper reds back

this pic was from little over week ago - again killed the reds, only couple flounder and specs but they were nice size ones

hoping to get back out there this weekend for some more action

couple of nice sacks of fish . The flounder should be moving a little
in that back bays. Need to get my cast net out see if i can find a few
finger mullet for bait. Red plastics work fairly well on them for me.

yea flounder are starting to move in -- reds are still running strong also -- last day we went was day after the cold front and think they were still not feeding strong as even the bigger bull reds wasnt hitting very hard -- more towards Galveston bay though the flounder are strong but i hate that long drive to texas city dike or eagle point -- thompson's and upper trinity much closer and shorter ride for me

i use to never keep them always throw them back then friends started wanting them saying they were good -- honestly i don't even eat fish, sometimes i might eat little flounder or crappie but rarely -- i most catch it for friends or family really, love fishing but just not much on eating it myself -- guess if i ever learned to blacken or cook like that might eat more -- love all other seafood just never been much on fish though

If you fillet out the sheepshead and then boil the fillets in crab boil, you can't tell them apart from crab meat. While the cooked meat is still hot, pull the meat apart with two forks... especially good mixed with red sauce as a crab dip.

I'm a bit surprised there is enough salinity in upper Trinity Bay for trout. But I guess that depends on what you're calling upper Trinity Bay. I'm hearing rumors of trout around Smith Point. Nobody is talking if they're catching trout in the marsh....Red's Bayou, Long Island Bayou, etc. I've been going to Keith Lake and Sabine Lake rather than fight crowds in East Bay. Not doing much good but it's sure pretty scenery and usually just old retirees out during the week.
Looking at tides, I'm thinking the GoDevil in Long Island Bayou about Tuesday and the bay boat to the Louisiana side of Sabine Lake Thursday.

Very nice catch.
Im with SK. Sheepshead aren't fun to scale but they taste great. Used to see so many guys throw them back...didn't know what they were missing.
Flounder should be thick near the Galveston airport and in Cold Pass with cooler weather.
