Details: Mangrove Snapper
Casting pearl gulp shrimp at structure, bouncing it off the bottom
Low 50's 15-20 mph winds and overcast. Fishing around oyster beds in about 5fow. 30lb braid with 15lb flouro leader California rig. Casting about 5-10ft from ...more beds and popping it every 5-10sec when not getting a bite. Caught too many of these rat reds to count, whiting, and one keeper speck. Stop taking pics after the 6th rat.
Headed to corpus Dec 29-31. So far planning on fishing bob hall and packery. No boat. The game plan is to use live shrimp or baitfish caught in cast net. I have ...more never fished the coast in winter, so is there anything I should do different? Or any specific bait I should use due to bait fish migrating or anything?
