DALLAS (KDAF) — Grab some rods, line, bait, and some drinks and snacks and head out to sea and start fishing!
The weather will warm up sooner than you think and that means fishing season is almost here. But where are the best fishing spots this year?
We checked out a Fishing Booker report on the best spring fishing spots this year, and a Texas city is going to be a hot destination to catch some fish.
- Ocean City, Maryland
- South Padre Island, Texas
- Roanoke, Va
- Morro Bay, Calif
- Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania
- Bozeman, Montana
- Saratoga Lake, New York
- Sturgeon Bay, Wisconsin
- Lake Clinton, Kansas
The report said: “Of course, we are talking about Red snapper, easily found in the waters of the Lone Star State. Only in Texas can you get Snapper year-round, which is reason enough to visit. Then you have your greats of the coast – Redfish, Spotted Trout, AND Flounder, which make up the “Texas Slam”. This makes spring fishing on South Padre Island unforgettable. As if that weren’t enough, you can even clip to a file Tarpon from March onwards.
Surf fishing and galavanting around the flats and docks offer first class bites, but what about deeper water? In late spring, you can go after a variety of game fish, including King Mackerel, Mahi Mahi, Red Snapper, AND Sharks.”
