I like them when they’re smaller slot. The big ones just take too long to get in. Lol

I'm definitely a red guy. My wife likes trout so I try to be a good husband, but I'd much rather catch reds.

Cleaning them has become worlds easier since I discovered the cordless bubba blade with the 9" stiff blade.
I’m with you I’d rather catch reds over trout most any day, probably because I know how/where to find them.

Don’t get me wrong I LOVE some trout action too, but that first run of a 24-26” red is where it’s at.

Well, had planned on going in the morning when I got off work. But some dummy didn’t check the weather. High winds, lightning, and thunder this morning. Only had 1” lt rain out of the show.

Did go gigging this evening and fished off a pier. 10-12 dink’s, and only saw 1 flounder.

Freaking love me some hunting of fishes. We got some gigging in during a brief wind break last weekend. Excuse the sand, wife is ruthless dropping flatties on the ground for some reason no matter how much I **** and moan. LOL... That's a 75qt Yeti for size reference.

We had a great topwater bite this morning wading with the majority being 17-20" fish. It lasted about an hour and a half and when the tide slowed so did the bite. We caught 'em on worms after that but most at that point were under 17". I bet I caught 10 over 17 this morning and no telling how many under.

Yesterday we caught 3 limits of trout out of the boat and released a bunch more. Lots of 14-16"ers.

What a difference a light wind makes, even if it is still a SW wind.

Slew- let me know when you get down. There’s a few places to walk in. Have lights you can borrow as well.

I jacked around and didn’t fish yesterday morning, so made a trip last night. Light southwest wind, water way out. Surprisingly water was clean, tons of bait, but didn’t catch anything. Fished from 2100-2300.

Made a round with my mutts after a quick shower and got skunked again. Almost wish I’d stayed home.

With those flat fish might as well use the yard burd to catch crabs. Then you could stuff the flounder with crab and broccoli

Spending the weekend at my in-laws in sea isle, decided to hit the surf the morning, couldn’t have asked for better water. Nice sandy green with a couple ft of visibility. Had two blow ups on tops this morning at first light and that was it. Saw a couple guys throwing shrimp and only saw them catch a couple hard heads.

Got out the other day after work. Man the wind was making things tuff, only managed (2) short reds. I did a great job at spooking several out of the county though. At least I fished a new area that was holding them. Happy Memorial Day out there fellas.

Lol, she was brought in alive. We worked pretty hard to keep our trout alive, also kept the flounder and reds alive too. I’m not against keeping them at all, we just don’t always keep them. Being 5 minutes from the boat ramp is nice and fresh fish trumps anything from the freezer. Pretty much only freeze our flounder from gigging trips.

Limits of trout are almost too easy right now... we are finding that we can have our bag of keeper trout in a matter of minutes. I've fished the corpus coast my whole life and I can't remember it ever being this good w very few dinks.
The reds were nomads but we grind it out till we pick up a few

We got caught between Marker and Bird. I’ve never seen water change so quick and hope to never see it again. Couldn’t find shelter with a covered porch so we rode through it to Marker.

I took the kiddo down to surfside to catch some crabs for a quick trip. 30 undersized crabs into it I tossed a piece of peeled shrimp into the ICW with a zebco to play around with some pinfish since I accepted defeat with the crabs. Immediately hit a keeper red, and then lost 6 other huge bull reds/black drum on peeled shrimp that the pre-spooled Zebco line just could hold on to. Its always when I don't plan for it ...always.

Dang Man! Tough luck on that one. Bet your boy will remember that line peeling for a long time!

I snuck out this morning despite the dang wind. I stopped counting at 50, with at least 30 being in the 17-19” range. The rest were dink’s. Started out with a mirrodine, then switched over to an old Sea Devil.

Wife called me while fishing and asked how it was going, her mom and niece are visiting. Gave a report and she said they’d be there in 20 min. By the time they showed up, the bite had slowed down considerably. They still managed to catch around 10 between the 3 of them. They did lose some dink’s, along with 4-5 that would have kept.

This is what I use and I find it to be the most accurate. Also money well spent is Saltwater Recon. Live cameras so you can verify forecast.
