2022 – Fishing Reports


4/22/22 – 4/24/22 Self-chartered Bay Fishing Trip

Four FCS members fished and fellowshipped in Port O’Connor from 4/22/22 – 4/24/22.  Temperatures were pleasant but the wind was above 20 mph the entire time they were in Port O’Connor, which made fishing a challenge.  They fished Saluria, Big Bayou, Coast guard flats, and the oil well cuts using shrimp, crab, and cut whiting.  They caught whiting, hardhead catfish, a number of large gafftop catfish, some stingrays, and one black drum.

The best catches of the weekend were a ~40 inch stingray by Roy Zengerle and a ~40 inch black drum by Wayne Weilnau.  Because of the wind and the lack of success, they did not fish Sunday, instead they scouted the Seadrift area and Charlie’s Bait camp for future trips.  They did not see any interesting areas in Seadrift.  Charlies looked interesting for a future kayak trip, but the bay there is too skinny for most boats.

The Fishing Center in Port O’Connor now carries crab.  Unfortunately they were already dead when they bought them and smelled so bad that they dumped them.

4/2/22 Guided Largemouth Bass Fishing Trip

On Saturday, 4/2/22, Zack Tumlinson and Chris, a friend of guide and FCS member Kevin McConnell, fished with Kevin on Lake Fayette.  They ended up with 19 bass – two of which were 5 pounders!  Zack loaded the boat using green crawdad soft plastics.

3/19/22 Guided Hybrid/Striped/White Bass Fishing Trip

On Saturday, 3/19/22 Flint and Harrison Deshazo fished with guide and FCS member Kevin McConnell on Lake Buchanan.  They ended the day with 55 whites, stripers, and hybrids.  The weather was awesome!

03/18/22 Guided Hybrid/Striped/White Bass Fishing Trip

On Friday, 3/18/22 Steve Babin fished with guide and FCS member Kevin McConnell on Lake LBJ.  A cold front hit on Thursday night with 25 mph winds, so Kevin moved the trip to Lake LBJ.  It was slow, but they caught 12 fish.  The highlight of the day was a 15″ crappie Kevin caught.  Kevin’s scale showed  it to be 2.1 lbs.  They thought it might be the lake record, so they took it to Inks Lake State Park and got it weighed on their certified scale – it weighed 1.8 lbs.  The lake record is 2.06 lbs. and it was 14″ long.
