Fishing good in Palacios

We have been whacking the fish this fall. Our trout population (in Palacios) has rebounded great after the freeze and the 60 plus inches of rain we had this summer. We have been finding trout all over our bays, under birds all the way out from the river to Oyster Lake, on the north shoreline of Tres Palacios Bay over shell pads and bunkers, and (we’re) still catching a few out at the rigs.
