Port Lavaca's Drive-to Fishing
Six Mile Park
To get to Six Mile Park follow FM1090 north out of Port Lavaca approximately six miles from Hwy 35 to Park Road (first road to the right past the Assembly of God Church.) Follow the road to the end where you will arrive at the park.
Wadefishing opportunites are on both sides of the ramp area. To the left is a mud/sand bottom cove that leads around to Placedo Creek. The shoreline is grass and reds and trout often feed right along the front of the grass. Placedo creek is deep and that will be as far as you can wade.
To the right of the pier is a shell beach that can be waded for several hundred yards.
Where 6 Mile creek empties into the bay is a prime fishing area as well as a hundred yards either side. This areas also has a wadeable bottom and is a good place to find flounder bedded up at night. If fishing at night for trout, throw worm jigs, live bait under popping corks or plastic baits, with or without a popping cork. If reds or drum are your target, dead shrimp or cut bait (mullet, croaker, squid, crab) is good fished on bottom. Live mullet, croaker, perch, fished on bottom are also good for reds and drum, and possibly and occasional trout. If you bring a cast net, the boat slip is a good place to pick up live bait. The shorelines are also good. One of the prime spots is on either side of the road over the little creek seen just as you enter the park area.
