1. Went on a two day fishing trip in Matagorda a couple weeks ago w/my co-workers & my manager. Fished in East Bay & limited out on trout with 20ea, also caught ...more 2 black drum plus a nice 26" red on our first day. Had a hard time pinpointing the trout due to no wind or water movement. Needle nose gar were a nuisance & kept stealing our bait all day. Finally found the trout in 3-4FOW over a small reef

    Spotted (Speckled) Trout

  2. 4 Flounder, 4 Redfish, 5 Speckled Trout, 1 Sheepshead & 1 Striped Bass. Most were caught during high tide. Sheepshead & ladyfish were feeding on shrimp while ...more the reds trout & stripers chased mullet. Free-lining both shrimp & mullet & casting in the current letting them drift. The only time we got hits was when the bait sunk closer to the bottom so We pinched a split shot to help keep the bait down

  3. Big thanks to @Reel_Smooth for puttin me on some fish Saturday. Started out free lining dead shrimp & caught a lot of ladyfish, a couple small black drum & ...more pin fish. Changed to Gulp when the tide rolled in & landed 2 small flounder & these keepers. Casting in the current & lettin it drift the flounder would hit it on the fall & run with it. Pearl white & pink were the colors that got the most hits

    Gulf Flounder

      @GoatGirl they sure are & taste amazing too! Most of the time you gotta be patient with them because they like to mouth the bait/lure for a bit. I usually count ...more 10 seconds before setting the hook....

      They are @GoatGirl when you hit the 20+ range they feel completely different. They know how to use their body at that point and start to take good drag also.

  4. Details: Inshore Slam (trout/flounder/redfish)

    First time using chatter weights & I was impressed with how well they worked. We caught most of our trout & a couple flounder using them. After the cast, ...more we let the croaker sit for 20-30 seconds, twitched the rod quickly shaking the chatter weight & BAM! Flounder were caught in between pilings that were part of an old dock & most trout were caught in big sandy pockets surrounded by heavy grass

  5. Details: Red (redfish) Drum

    Caught this awesome pup red at my tournament this weekend. The Reds in the area were scarce and we only caught a couple of them all day. Complete opposite of last ...more years tournament. We were drifting in 2'-3' of clear greenish water & casting in grass pockets between large rocks when this little guy hit. Measured 16 1/4". Released back safely for someone else to CPR

    1. gr82bstr8 0
      @Esgar272 dude the largest trout I caught was a little over 18". Believe me, we were looking but kept finding schools of small trout. A 28" trout is a ...more really nice catch though so good job!
