    If you wanna pull on big fish, come to Texas. I have been getting solid reds and black drum almost every trip for the past two months.

    check out the lastest video I made from today's catch. Everyone said not to fish today because it was too windy, cold, and too much freshwater in the bay from all the rain we have been getting. I was hooked up w/in 15min.

    You've got that place dialed in.

    Anything on lures or is it all bait and wait?

    theres a slot size limit on these you can only keep them from 14-30 inches I believe.

    Yeah I have caught Reds, flounder, and speckled trout on artificials. This time of year though is really tough with lures. I'm can't wait for the water to warm back up I'm gonna be using yellowtail irons and poppers to fish for jacks, reds, king macks, snook, and tarpon!

    Either way great catches and it would be epic to hang one of those hogs on a surface iron. Catching fish on lures and techniques not familiar to the locals is always an extra bonus.

    Hell Yeah! I've been meaning to throw iron on bull reds but work and timing has not worked out yet. I've caught plenty of reds on bait, but it would be awesome to stick one on a surface plug.
    If you need a fishing wingman with San Diego jig stick gear, let me know!

    I fished Corpus and brought down some 45's. Pretty much useless unless you are fishing the ICW or Packery Channel. No doubt in my mind a scrambled egg or a blue/white 45, kicker, etc. surface plug would draw strikes in the deeper water.
