None in the surf there. On spoons in the mornings we caught bluefish and ladyfish last year. On mullets and sand fleas we caught about 300 baby sharks. I think all the sharks pushed everything else out when we were there.

Caught one pompano on a fishbite.

Has anyone caught and kept any trout from Galveston bay as of late? Heard they put a hault to selling oysters out of Galveston, as well as recommended not to eat the fish after the recent accident with the tankers on the ship channel..

I turn the front trebble to a single hook and string the back with stiff 40lb mono.
I have caught a trout on the front hook and a rat red on the trailing lure in one pot hole at the same time. No pictures of that one because back then all we had were bag phones without cameras. lol

Well looky there.

I always use a topwater with original hooks, swivel to front or middle split ring. 22" or less leader to trailing bait.
Work it like a topwater.
