PORT ARTHUR — That is already happening and although I cannot verify a 10-pounder I did see several photos of anglers with fish that were 30 inches which is right in that 8.5-10 pound class during the time they were caught.
Last week’s S.A.L.T. tournament showed just how healthy are trout populations with John Brown’s winning fish at 8.33 pounds and all three places over seven pounds. Those are tremendous catches.
At the end of the summer, we will check back on the flounder prediction and see how that one goes. I will add to that one there is a high probability the winning fish will come from the Galveston or Aransas Bay complex. Both of those have some super-sized flounder genetics.
It’s always fun to look at outdoors conditions and take a shot at predicting how things will turn out.
I would love to be the one to catch that winning flounder. Winning the boat would be great but simply experiencing catching a flounder of that size would be even better.
