Middle Ground in Matagorda Bay
GPS Coordinates N 2830.505' W 9613.455'
 

The flats around Greens Bayou and Middle Ground extend farther out into Matagorda Bay than most of the surrounding area. In some places these flats drop off very quickly into deep water. Concentrate on these drop-offs for trout in the spring, summer and early fall and on the flats for redfish and flounder.

This area is good for wade fishing. Wade fishing can be very rewarding but can also can be dangerous for the inexperienced angler. Watch out for holes, drop-offs, soft bottoms, oyster shells and stingrays.
