Upper Guad? I've never fished around there, so I don't know where the spring break crowds would be. I'd fish wherever they ain't though.

Go to the Copper Cactus in Ingram on the loop and talk to my son Darrin.
He knows every fishing spot in the county.

I was going to say put in at Schumacher crossing but if you don't want to hit the river you might try Brady reservoir

Roll to the South Texas coast! I'm rolling Saturday - Monday..........FLORIDA POMPANO in the surf, Sheepshead on rocks and specks and reds staging during the afternoons on the flats. Boat, surf and jetties.......just GETCHA SOME!

Course another option, you can catch Dolphin Docks, and run offshore for 10 hours on the vessel Captain Paul with skipper Michael D.

Rolling PINS Saturday and chasing Pompano. It's that time and nothing else grills like a Florida Pompano!

Padre Island National Seashore - if you have a 4x4, there isn't a SPRING BREAK 15 plus miles South. And the more you roll sand towards Mexico, the warmer and cleaner the surf gets. It's awesome this time of the year since the sand is packed from cool winter temps, fish are now starting to stage in their spring to early summer patterns, and you can go all day long without breaking a sweat!

Apple smoked PINS caught Florida Pompano. Rub them with olive oil, and in my case, HEB's Shore Seasonings and toss them on the smoker till stuff turns wonderful.

Pick the meat and stack crackers with cheese, red onion, cilantro, jalapeno slice and serve with something ice cold.





Wanna know what I use? Simple sheet!


Laid back fun - long rods, Shrimp Fishbites and hunting the sand. Roll stop and fish. Over and over, eventually find them.

Would love to hit all that ATW, but a little too far for a day trip deal. Had planned on hitting POC for Thursday and Friday, but that's not happening now. Would love to find some good whites action, but got blanked at Colorado Bend last Saturday.

North coast is cool, a bit too cool for shallow fishing. The zone...scope water temps that margin around 67 - 70 degrees this time of the year.

The boat........you can drop into CONN BROWN Harbor in Aransas Pass and zip out to the flats out front, port and starboard, and nail specks and redfish. Black drum are on fire right now. Fresh dead shrimp or quality frozen shrimp, thawed out, and fished along channel edges will produce black drum. I've caught them fishing the Intracoastal Waterway, dead center in the main channel (16ft of water), using a 3/0 circle hook rigged fish finder style. My bait, 6 inch piece of Berkley Shrimp flavored fish bite in Chartreuse. Toss it out as far across the channel as you can cast and slow bump it over the channel bottom on retrieve. Do this over and over and continually move along the Intracoastal Waterway till you find a pile of them. Pull up and follow till you can net them. Expect to get potlicked if boats see you.

I'm a sick salty puppy......real SICK!

OK...plan B.

Guadalupe River toward Hunt, get a double spinner bait....in green. Light, dark and chartreuse.

Toss the yak into the water near the Hunt River crossing and go south with something to pick you up near Ingram and or Kerrville.

A Mepps yellow spinner bait on a 4lb ultralight, another rod rigged 4 inch Texas rigged in motoroil, red sparkles, and the 3rd rod with a greenie spinner bait. Just drift SE and go hole to hole with a drop anchor above the holes. Deep rapids, pull out and work the Texas rig in big current. Deep holes, go Spinner bait. Ultralight.....slow slack water.


Got a GOLD MINE right there!

Here's the spinnerbait...deadly in Kerrvilla Country on the Lupe!



You know this spot.....it's west of Ingram Amigo. Ain't spilling beans here but.....these colors nail all of them. Colorado and Willow leaf in chrome. The Walmart in Kerrville used to carry them. Cheap as hail but they were stocked for a reason, maybe even Chinese? Just stare at Kerrville Walmart and Gibson spinnerbait colors in GREEN. They are at both.......unless sold out.

Nothing deep, aim at the bank and fling there, even hit the bank and let the **** thing drop down off the bank along the deep edges.

I'm thinking......I need to do this week after next! Spawning green pigs in the river, they are very predictable and you have an advantage.....you live there to work the conditions. PM me if you need help, I'll be there pronto!

If your willingly to travel to Amistad how about Pecos River at High Bridge or up the Devils? White bass are crazy like wow right about now. With that Yak you should have no troubles getting in and out.

If you want to float after sundown...may I suggest anything in black, that can settle and pop slowly. This one went Jitterbug.......they hit in darkness. Can't see you and it's really like spotlighting......but this SHIAT IS LEGAL!

West of Kerrville on the Guadalupe.......and I ain't saying...spent too many years to give it all away online. Really no secret but, most won't work to get here on the river.

She was released...babies should be part of the chain now.

That's a Shimano Citica 200, river reel with custom upgrades to drag and bearings, on a custom rod for size. The old Fat Girl could make dinner of my reel as well as bait.

A throw away reel........that's been tuned. I'm sick.......REEL sick. Kayak reels get **** poor love....but I send them away with the best they can be.
