Let my buddy's son haul in this one. 8yrs old, working a 12' rod. Begged us to take it from him but he got it in. Great job William! 44" from the 2nd gut.

      @rogerdale257 I'd take my chances in the surf. Maybe hit bolivar or west beach. SanLouis Pass should have fish.

      @GunnerNewberry how's the weed on bolivar? @rogerdale257

      I have a programmer so if I hit it fast enough I can usually get through, lol. No, just a 2wd truck.

      @rogerdale257 do you have a 4wd?

      @rogerdale257 no problem, we all learned from someone. I'm been saying this for a while, but if we can find time, we want to have a FS surf fishing event this ...more summer. @Chuck is the surf master.

      Thanks a lot, man.

      Lol, I gotcha. I've never fished in the surf and I want to get out there and try.

      It's pretty fun/challenging sometimes

      @rogerdale257 well, that can work. Usually you wait to you see signs of them, like one will jump. Polarized glasses help you see them 6" underwater. ...more You'll see ripples from the school.

      Just start throwing the net out in knee deep water?

      Check out our YouTube video for how we hook them. Fishingscoutvideos @rogerdale257

      @rogerdale257 I'll catch most in the surf with a cast net. But most bait stores have them you can by fresh dead or frozen. Both halves work.

      Might sound dumb, but where do you get your mullets? And do you just cut their heads off and hook them and throw the rest out?
