Re: Aransas Pass to Port A September

Caddis Breathable waders from Amazon. I think they were around 80 bucks when I bought them 5 years ago. I wear a thin sock liner, shorts and a t-shirt underneath. If I get a little warm I put my legs in the water and i feel better. I fish from sunlight to 11am and really didn't get too warm. Toward ...

Aransas Pass to Port A September

The changes I have noticed from August to the end of September. The tides have been higher in the mornings making fish finding a little more difficult. Blind casting at nervous bait-fish and throwing at structure both above and below the surface helps. The redifsh have been in pods usually feeding t...

Re: Dead Man’s Hole

Awesome. I really enjoy that spot. Is the parking/ road still open for everyone? It used to get a lot of traffic when I fished. Awesome job picking up trash, we need that place!

Yeah, I think I will have to be so drugged up that I wouldn't be able to even reel lol. I have used everything and it never seems to help. Each time offshore it got worse than the last time. I think I will stick to the bays and sandy surf. Thanks for the responses, I will have to live vicariously th...

Re: Adopt-A-Beach 09/17/2022

We had a lot of fun and the show out was good. We cleaned the eastern end of LHL from the unpaved area to the bridge. We collected about 2 1/2 bags of trash just at that end. There were volunteers all the way down to South Bay Marina. My daughter went swimming afterwards and we journeyed around that...

I get it horribly bad on long trips offshore, like every time. Last time I went I reeled in a snapper and then stuck my head overboard :oops: I was wondering if a kayak made it worse or better? I would think its better to be closer to the water, but the rocking on a kayak can get bad. I remember fis...

Re: Nearshore Rigs coordinates

Unless it’s foggy when you go you can see them all from the beach. For Mayan Princess take beach access road 2 and turn North. Stop at beach marker 80 for the most direct route to that set of rigs. Returning to the beach is easy, just aim left of the condo with the red tile roof. For Mustang Island...

Re: Freeport 28-Aug-2022

a couple of things to keep in mind. Along the TX coast between the barrier islands, there are 15,000 sq mi less than 2' deep. Adult speckled trout travel 20 mi/day to chase bait. The bigger females travel alone, the adult males in schools. The small trout you catch are nursery trout and live where ...

Re: Freeport 28-Aug-2022

Without putting too fine a point on it, one of the nice things about a kayak fishing meetup is that you're not stuck in the same boat in case one or more of the participants drinks too much or gets otherwise obnoxious. Anyone who's ever been on a party boat or a charter with customers/ co-workers k...

Aransas Pass to Port A

Fished North of hwy 361 including South Bay, LHL, and Hog Island July and August. The water clarity has been really good. 8/10. Floating vegetation is moderate in open water. The tides were lower and I fished from 6-11am. The drum are still back in LHL pretty thick, they are just spooky most of the ...

Re: Corpus Christi Area - Aransas Pass Area - Living

I actually moved from Houston to Corpus Christi this year. The traffic (compared to Houston) is not nearly as bad as some complain. But I live in town near Cole Park, so I don't have experience driving on the rapidly growing Southside. Driving to the Island is usually stress free, but I avoid holid...

Flour Bluff is such a fishy location, just lots of people too.

Re: best way

I have always carried my kayaks upside down. I face the bow toward the rear of my vehicle in my current situation. On longer kayaks I would use bow/stern straps. All my kayaks have been 12feet and under and I have never had an issue with the kayak moving. However, I use good straps and cinch down re...

Impulse makes some really good points. I have lived in Flour Bluff, Corpus Christi, Aransas Pass, and currently Rockport. I enjoyed them all while living there.

Re: My trip with Jay Watkins

More hours on the water fishing for those types of fish is required. I like fishing for Redfish lol. I have said many times I would take a stringer of 27 inch Redfish caught on topwater over a 30 inch trout any day. My chances of catching a 30inch trout are slim. The one chance we have is the 29 3/4...
