I live in Matagorda County and was wondering if anybody else hunts in this general area?

Used to guide out of Bay City and hunted East Matagorda for years. What do you want to know?

Yea, I know some guys from the Brazosport Area that hunt peach point and Mad Island. I used to hunt San Benard, Brazoria and Big Boggy almost exclusively (did I spell that right?). I've heard that Peach Point and Mad Island (both pay areas) have some killer lines in the morning. Most camping out in line the previous night. I just don't feel the urge like that anymore, besides I know too many spots that not many others no about.
You have to work harder, but the reward is awesome.

two gun-
you are right. i have spent quite a few nights in the car in line down there. i like the way it is set up. it's a lot easier for the person who doesn't have the means to get to the hard to reach places.

Seems like E Matagorda gets a ton of traffic. I've been hunting and fishing that bay for years, but I've never had a killer hunt. I'm interested in hunting Big Boggy, but I need a little local knowledge if anyone's willing to share.

Does anyone use thier Bay Boat to hunt? I think a large majority of my problem is my Shoalwater sticks out like a sore thumb. I park that thing a half mile away, but it doesnt seem to help.

I've also hunted the NWR down by Matagorda and shot a few Gad's but nothing else. I would enjoy the opportunity to try something new this year.

Has anyone hunted Chocolate Bayou?

I hunted it really hard the past three years. Right out off the NAS there in corpus christi and all along the ICW/shipping channel along all those islands, and Corpus Christi bay, and the bay side of Part A. Also pretty good WMA in Tivoli right up the road
