That’s about what I imagined…all while coming abruptly off plane and having no steering.

No thanks.

Fished hard from 6:00 to 8:30 this morning with my boys. We fished a pretty shoreline up towards Indianola. Tons of bait. Fishing has been tough here. We did catch 10 trout, 2 reds and a 1 flounder on artificials but none them were keepers.

Not salt obviously but we had a wind out of nowhere on Livingston yesterday eve that churned up the waters bad. 3 rescues by Cape Royale within an hour of it. Winds get up to 20 on the South end of Livingston and you are in a tiny or flat bottomed boat you are in deep trouble. One guy, the driver they fished out if the water at least a hundred yards from his boat. Good thing for life vests.

Saturday: Went solo gigging at 4am: stepped over 25, got my 5 in less than half an hour. Caught a couple reds for the box, spent rest of day getting dads boat off water and towing it in.

Sunday: took some family gigging and fishing til 10am: 5 flounder, 4 reds and 1 trout. Not as many flounder, a lot of juveniles and the red fish fishing wasn’t as hot like the past 3 weekends.

Monday: Dad, Bro and fiancé left slip at 7am. I asked Dad what you want to do. He said I want to go fish for flounder with artificial like you did last weekend. So, off we went. Pulled up to my flounder spot, 28 flounder were landed and numerous got off by 9:30. It was something. Dad said it was first time in his 78 years he’s ever experienced a flounder feeding like that, it was on fire. Chasing lures right to our feet, missed them, jigged it back over them and got em!
Out of the 28 flounder 2 trout and 1 red landed we kept 10 flounder and 1 trout this morning. Gulp White Curly tails was the flavor of choice.

Interesting Fact: those flounder were stacked within about a 20yds radius. Most cast were less than 15 yards.

Other boats hauling butt right past us weren’t more than 30yds away. I bet they were probably wondering why are 4 people standing in shin deep water only an arms length apart from each other and the boat less than 10feet Away from them?! Bunch of dumb dumbs!

I'll vouch for those fishing guides as well (Captain Doug and Captain Monte) went out with Captain Doug a few months ago and he got us on some good reds.

I'll be down there end of this week fishing the Rockport/Aransas Pass area and will be using their latest video to get in the ballpark.

I know this will be a long shot but does anyone have an external fuel bladder of at least 50 gallons sitting around they would sell or rent?

We want to go to boomvang from Freeport and only have a 111 gallon tank

I hit the lake 4th of July weekend with the new boat. Have been missing the salt water. Ready to get this boat sold, so I can get back into a bay boat.

Y'all know the tripletail in the bay came in from the gulf right? They are way more common in the gulf than in the bay. I've caught a bunch of them off the beachfront. If you are fishing the surf by boat when you get done make a wide swing out off the beach on your way in and be looking for black plastic bags floating near the surface, that is what a tripletail kinda looks like. And for sure if you see anything floating go take a look under it.

We messed around trying to catch one hiding under a crabtrap float in Copano one time.

I'd been better off shooting it. He didn't bite

We were at one of the floaters one night 100+ miles offshore and a tripletail came floating up. Glen free gaffed it and it went in the box. Crazy fish looking and acting fish!

They are suckers for a big live shrimp. They will murder a finger mullet too. I've caught them on a fly rod several times. I've had much better luck catching them on lures and flies in the gulf than in the bay. I don't know why. And they will eat a cork. We usually fish a live shrimp under a cork for them and I have had them absolutely destroy popping corks. If they are right on the surface a free lined shrimp is deadly.

The key is to get the bait to them without dropping it on their head, especially if you are throwing a cork. And if you are using a cork to get the bait to them, not the cork. I have guys reel the cork right up to their nose and stop, they eat the cork and the shrimp hasn't even made it to them yet. Or they scare 'em off.

Two reds buried themselves in the drift algae made a challenge to get them out. Lost one, got a decent keeper. Lots of rats today.

After striking out at our first pot this morning the boys and I made a move. We found some good tidal flow and lots of bait in a gut parallel to a grass flat. The bite from 9–10:30 was wide open! Both boys caught their PB at the same time and one of them broke their PB half an hour later. We released well over a dozen slot trout and a few reds as well. Double D and top waters were the baits of choice.

We find them near the beach all the time. Had a keeper triple tail float under a light on my buddy’s pier the other night while I was fishing for trout in Sabine, and his place is close to 10 miles from the mouth of the jetties. Got it to bite twice before it floated away, but didn’t hook up.

They have just about ran their course I think, just dealing with some residual nerve pain in my shoulder. Casting is still out of the question, since I’m a 2 handed caster.

Double D and top waters were the baits of choice.

Nice quality fish!

You’ve never caught a flounder? I though you were an ocean perch guy?? Heck I’ve caught flounder in a couple states and I don’t ocean perch fish!

I wouldn’t trade em for crappie fillets though.
