Matagorda Bay East and West - Located on the middle Texas coast:

Fish east and west Matagorda Bays with Fin Tastic Coastal ChartersCapt. Sloan's favorite thing to do is wade for trophy trout, but fishing from a comfortable 24' Tran Cat Boat is another option if you do not care to wade. "This is my favorite area of the Texas Gulf Coast to fish. There are miles and miles of open bay and shorelines as well as some very productive reefs." If you are looking for a trophy trout to hang on the wall, East Matagorda Bay offers up some world class speckled trout action. If you like catching reds, Matagorda is a great place to catch a world class redfish.

Wade Fishing:
Wade East or West Matagorda Bays for trophy trout and redfish.
