Sufix Introduces 832 Advanced Lead Core Line

Minnetonka, MN- Sufix®, the trendsetter in fishing line, continues to set the market on fire with the introduction of Sufix 832® Advanced Lead Core, the first lead core line to combine both Dyneema® and GORE® performance fibers.

“This is the strongest, most versatile lead core available,” boasts Al Lindner, legendary angler and National Freshwater Fishing Hall of Famer. “It’s ideal for trolling and big-game species because of the added strength and extreme sensitivity.”

When compared to other lead core lines, Sufix 832 Advanced Lead Core dives 30 percent deeper and is a whopping 70 percent stronger and infinitely more sensitive.

“The composition of these two fibers braided around the lead core wire creates the most abrasion resistant, roundest, UV protected lead core line on the market,” said Lindner.

With 10 color sequences, anglers can confidently get baits to the preferred depth with ease, and with three times the abrasion resistance, all underwater obstacles can’t wear this lead core down.

Suffix 832 Advanced Lead Core is available in 12- and 18-pound test in 100- and 200-yard spools.

“Anglers may wonder why this line is only available in 12- and 18-pound test. Simply, this lead core was designed to be the smallest diameter, accented with superb strength and sensitivity – so no matter what species or application, this lead core handles beyond expectations,” explained Lindner.

Sufix fishing line: always use the best line®.

Best bite is early in the morning along the Texas middle coast

Welcome to the weekly saltwater fishing reports for the middle coast of Texas. The reports are gathered from Texas Parks & Wildlife Department WEEKLY REPORTS and local fishing guides. Check out the TPWD website for a listing of reports from the entire Texas coast, lakes and rivers.

 PORT O’CONNOR: Trout and redfish are good on topwaters and plastics over sand and grass in San Antonio Bay. Trout and redfish are good on live bait in the guts and holes on the falling tide.

 Capt. Chris Kelley reports that conditional extremes can produce some “extreme success” and the weather has been at both ends of the pendulum lately. “From slick glass with shredded water from strong winds overnight to gusting shredded water during the daytime. Strike timing with one eye on the tide and the other on the horizon has kept us in the fish lately. Redfish action over mud/grass continues working it’s way into the day in day out approach while water is attempting to heal up with some tide movement or deminishing winds.

“Trout action has been best on tide movement of any direction as the water settles out from overnight winds. We continue to have a lot of water in the bays which makes this an unusual summer season for sure, no complaints. Elevated tides have been making some approaches easier and that has kept the shoreline plays in full gear for wade fishermen. Working shell reefs also benefits from higher water levels as it pulls more of the structure into play right up to the crest of the reefs. This gives an angler more options and some days that’s the extra edge that means the difference between success and limited success. Water levels are the oil that drives the engine, a nice way to contemplate that in relative terms.”

 ROCKPORT: Trout are fair on free–lined shrimp in the deep channels. Trout are fair over grass while drifting with live shrimp. Redfish are good in shallow water on mullet and perch.

 PORT ARANSAS OFFSHORE: Offshore is good for red snapper, ling and kingfish.

PORT ARANSAS JETTY: Redfish and sheepshead are fair to good at the jetty on shrimp.

 

PORT ARANSAS: Redfish are fair to good at East Flats on shrimp and Gulps.

CORPUS CHRISTI: Trout are fair to good on the edge of the spoils on Gulps and live shrimp. Trout are good on the flats while casting to the potholes on croakers and soft plastics.

Focus on Lake Conroe

Lake Conditions: The surface temperature of the water is warming fast at 88 plus degrees. The Lake is at 198.44, down about 2 1/2 feet with 201 being pool. The summer patterns are here to stay.

 Black Bass: The fish are still in the shallows feeding around boat docks, rocks, marinas early. The fish back off by mid-day to deeper water 12 -25 feet. Lots of the fish are being caught in brush piles and natural structure deep. Texas rigged worms in Watermelon Red, Watermelon Purple  and Pumpkin Seed have been productive baits. Small shallow diving crank baits in Tennessee Shad and chartreuse are getting the best bite for most fishermen.

The winds have been a factor the past couple of week, especially the afternoon bite. The wind will blow the bait to points and bulkheads.

Catfish: Guide Tex Bonin reports catching good stringers of 2 – 5 pound fish with some up to 8 pounds working baited holes using range cubes and sour mash for chum. Phillip James has been catching nice catfish on baited holes and main lake humps in 20-33 feet of water. Favorite baits are StickIt and chicken liver. He is also fishing boat docks where there is shade in the heat of the day. The 1097 Bridge has picked back up for catfish. 

Crappie: The crappie bite has slowed again everywhere this past week. Fair catches have come from marinas, brush on the edges of creeks 15 -20 feet, and on the Old Railroad Tram. The 1097 Bridge has picked up some with the early bite and after dark bite with lanterns.

Hybrids: Good hybrid catches have been coming from the south end of the lake. The fish have moved to deeper water humps in 25-30 feet of water surrounded by deep water to 40 feet.

Bream: Lots of huge bream are being caught fishing with jigs and minnows for crappie. Papa John of Lake Conroe fishing reports says  many serious bream fishermen will take a fish basket and fill it half way with range cubes.  As the range cubes dissolve, they shake the basket.  This will draw the bream.
