I've been out the past couple of weekends. I initially started my focus on the back lakes and at least the back lakes I've been too have been a ghost town. Not saying I didn't find any fish but one here one there type a deal and most were 16" reds. Out of 5 guys in 2 days only one keeper red was caught in the back lakes. We did find some fish out in front of back lake drains in conjunction with outgoing tide.
Based on what I'm seeing the fishing in and around Aransas/Redfish bays is not the same to say the least since the freeze. I know early after the freeze fish were schooled up IMO due to the loss of baitfish.
Good news is we do currently have an influx of baitfish moving into the bays. The closer you can get to the jetties where the baitfish and fish are coming into the bays the better IMO. South Bay would be good just be careful it'll be full of boats this weekend and the winds can make that a tough spot to fish. LHL could also be good since it's right off the channel. Sailboat channel (especially the east end) could also be good.
It's going to take some searching looking for bait, mud boils and blow ups. There's also a front blowing through Saturday morning.
