Saltwater Report

Recommended Posts

I haven't posted in a little while so I thought I'd put this up. Every year about the end of May I make a transition to fishing saltwater. While I can hardly sleep at night in the spring thinking about bass fishing, the feeling switches to the kings, lings, and snapper in our Gulf waters. My good friend and fishing partner Russ has a nice offshore center console and last week we spent three days running out of Freeport Texas to the rocks and wrecks that hold these fish. We were lucky to have calm seas, mild temps, and hot fishing. Limits of red and vermillion snapper and kings were caught. Other notables on this trip were my son Chad's first king on a fly rod, a 5' sand bar shark, and a 40+ lb king on a light spinning setup caught by me. Here's some pics:

 Nice looking fish! Have never been salt water fishing :'(. My wife and I are driving to my daughter's wedding next month (Florida). Hope to get the chance then...
