Default 2021 Salty H20 Fishing Thread Part II

Seems the old thread has bogged down, so we'll kick off a new one!

I say it's been one hell of first half, after the freeze and the deluge we've received over the last several weeks I can't remember a slower salt season in all my life.... hats off to Mayhem for trying to keep us entertained during some rough months.... thank you brother!

I think we're about to turn a corner on this weather and hopefully this wind and bays get some act right! Keep the pics coming Glenn, always always enjoy your expertise and wealth of knowledge. Hopefully this second half will be a little more exciting... and maybe I get a salt boat soon! ( I'm not boatless anymore but we won't talk about my new one )

I'll start us off from one epic trip from last year. Lots of good men In this picture!

I had planned on going this morning, but couldn’t force myself to go, too many issues.

Weather looks great, good luck to those that are out.

After about a month of just fishing from the shore (and catching nothing), I was finally able to get out on the kayak for a quick morning fish. No monsters, but got to feel some tight lines!



Check out the new video!

Y'all enjoy!

Beautiful fish goofie. I love them red tails then they get blue.

I'm starting to get the wade itch more but life general BS had been getting in the way far too much.

2 interesting notes: never seen so many gar in my life in that area. At least two that easily went 5-6' and a ton if 4-5'ers. Rolling everywhere. No doubt a good chunk of fish under a balloon would have got me a couple. And saw my first gator in surfside. 6' give or take.

Great day out on the water

Well as luck would have it, had planned on going fishing this morning. Didn’t look at the radar.

My buddy Matt Springfield had a guest cancel on him for this week's podcast so he called me last minute and asked if I'd fill in so he could get an episode out for this week. So we recorded another episode yesterday that was released today.

Texas Podcast and Blast

Y'all check it out. We talked a little more about current conditions, the freshwater runoff, lure colors, fishing with shrimp, etc. You might find something in there worth listening to.
