Today’s Recreation Report
Good Wednesday Morning, Southsiders! Welcome to your outdoors report for Wednesday, March 6, 2019. Brought to you exclusively by the Southside Light.
Expect to see water temperatures in the Packery Channel to be slightly lower than average which is 62°F today. The sun will rise in Packery Channel at 6:47 am and sunset will be at 6:33 tonight. Expect a high tide at 3:39 am and the low tide will be at 1:19 pm. We will have 11 hours and 46 minutes of sun. The solar transit will be at 12:40 pm.
The moon will rise in the southeast (101°) at 7:02 am and will set in the west (261°) at 6:45 pm. It is in the new moon phase right now.
Basing the fishing report off of astronomy and weather predictions, today should be a decent day for fishing in the Packery and around the Laguna Madre. The solar/lunar transit schedule and the fairly decent meteorological conditions will make for not a bad day to be wetting a hook.
Theoretically speaking, the best time to fish however, will likely be in the noon-3:00 p.m. range.
Bob Hall Pier
Over at Bob Hall Pier, the first high tide will be at 1:30 am and the next high tide at 4:10 pm. The first low tide will be at 9:01 am and the next low tide at 9:53 pm.
Again, fishing should be pretty decent over at Bob Hall, if you want to wet a hook out there.
General Fishing Report
Trout have been running fair to good on the edge of the spoils on Gulps and live shrimp. Black drum and redfish are fair to good in the Packery Channel on crabs.
