I remove them. Never eaten them, never will. I don't eat any of the guts either. That's just me, I know some folks like eating all sorts of stuff. I just like nice sweet crab meat. No guts and no gills for me.

I was supposed to be fishing down in Baffin today but we re-scheduled due to high winds. Its a bummer as I ended up working today instead of drinking beer and fishing.

Here's a pic of the rooster tail for proof. Had my little girl out last night! Night off from kids tonight. Gonna bring a nice single mom out this afternoon. Hopefully the rooster tail works, if not I'll fall back on the stache.

Some friends rented a house on the river in Matagorda for the weekend and invited us to hang out. We fished East Matty this morning for a couple of hours before the wind kicked up. Lots of bait but no water movement ahead of the front. The girls caught a couple of undersized reds on shrimp, but otherwise slow.

I havenít seen any of the chicks in bikinis, yet. Iím starting to think that may be false advertising.

Thanks for picking up the slack. I was busy catching catfish, cooking fish and drinking beer yesterday.

I will be out of pocket Wednesday- Saturday next week so it will be your job to do the daily post. Donít let us down and most of all donít get the thread whacked.

Along the lines of about an hour or so. Not bad on medium light trout gear. I saw the hook set and it didnít budge. Been there done that, no need for me to do it again lol

Planning to make a quick trip, probably solo to surf fish in the next few weeks. Anywhere better than surfside/the pass without driving to SPI that y'all recommend?

I'm a budget dude. So unless I score cheap lodging probably camp in the truck on the beach.

Matagorda beach has always been good to me. I like the solitude, also you can wade the bay on the other side if the wind is honking.

Will be driving the beast.

But I'll also bring shovels and recovery equipment. I've heard about matagorda. Never been. Any tips as far as where to get on the beach etc?

Being able to bay fish as well sounds cool if wind doesn't cooperate on my trip. Never had any success walk in wading, but always worth a try.

I have the boat. I just hate the effort and $ it takes to do a solo trip hauling the boat.

I've had huge success walk in wading East. Just gotta know where to go. I went on about a 8 year stretch boatless one time, and beat up East pretty good. My biggest trout is from a little walk in spot just east of Hog Island.

Only one way in, at the end of the road. I've done well from 8-15 miles down the beach, it has a deep first gut along that stretch. Wade in at Hog Island or Cain Cove area.

Beast looks legit, can probably throw a sweet rooster tail on the beach if the need arises ?
