Kayak fishing the Lone Star State...

Caught and released 6 Redfish to 27" this morning. Conditions were a shallow lake with lots of grass. So much so I could only throw weedless swim baits. The larger Redfish took off under the grass, line looked like I was drying out seaweed. Lost two to hooked being pulled due to grass.
This year looks like a banner growth for grass, at the same time provides cover for bait of which there was plenty.

Good work Tombo.

I have noticed way more grass too and in places it normally isn't.

I have a theory. The new normal tide level is about 6" higher than the predictions. This has kept more water in the lakes which allows the grass to get a better hold. It doesn't freeze out so badly in the Winter nor do some of the lakes go so dry on low tides also allowing the grass to survive better.

Global Warming at work!
