The Slowride Fishing Guide

One of the most inspiring things I’ve ever seen in my life was when Hurricane Harvey hit our area and there was a massive outpouring of love and help for those in need. I had no idea that an army of volunteers with nothing but the desire to help others without hesitation was going to show up and get so busy. Every year as the anniversary passes we are reminded with photo memories of the tragic weather event that hit our area and it is unfortunate that our friends in Louisiana are dealing with the same cleanup project created by Hurricane Ida. The fishing communities of South Louisiana were dealt a devastating blow with the passing of Hurricane Ida a few weeks ago. Many of the people there who had their lives and homes torn apart are working hard to help each other. Those of us that went through Harvey not that long ago still have vivid memories and relate to the struggle.

The Slowride Fishing Guide

Thankfully the heat of August has been put to rest and I’m so glad September is here. The funny thing about September is that it sometimes can be just another August. The one noticeable change this time of year is that the days are getting shorter. Sept. 21 is the first day of Fall and the fish and the animals respond to the hours of daylight to start their migrations or to realize that winter is right around the corner -- whether they are migrating or not. That change in the seasons will prompt fish to start feeding a little more vigorously and that is a great turn of events for the anglers that search the ultra- shallow flats for their quarry.

The Slowride Fishing Guide

If you’re going to enjoy the outdoor lifestyle, you’re going to have to embrace a little bad weather every once in a while. It has been an unusually rainy summer in South Texas which has had us reaching for the rain gear quite often while we are out there on the water. Fish like bad weather, or maybe they just like to see us struggling while we pursue them, but either way foul weather seems to turn on the bite. Rain that falls in South Texas during the heat of summer is always welcome and the influx of freshwater that the plants and trees enjoy so much will also enhance the life of the bay. Freshwater is a part of the chemistry of the bay and many species out there actually require a little fresh water to thrive, so we take the bad with the good and just keep the rain gear handy.
