I had decided to spend a little down time with the new wife while the parents were away getting a grandbaby fix and enjoy a quiet uneventful Thanksgiving weekend.

October 9, 2005 — Fall…Finally Man, for a while there it appeared that Mother Nature had reinvented herself into Eddie Murphy's Aunt Bunny that if you recall from Delirious took 15 minutes to fall down a flight of stairs. Well, Mother Nature finally fell ushering in clean clear water, cool temperatures, and finally a decent […]

August 15-22, 2001 — Winds and HIGH Tides As we had higher than normal summer time winds our snapper trips were somewhat bumpy. But with our targeting snapper less than 3 miles offshore the bone jarring trip out just is not the case. Limits of snapper with kings as an added trophy our guests endured […]

Re: Official Word on East Cut Dredging Thanks so much for the info. and effort. Maybe I'm being naive but it seems to me that 1.5 mil. would not be to difficult to raise. I'm certain there are people like myself all over the state who would be more than happy to assist in any […]

Re: Wading at Night When we were kids we would jump the fence at the condos on the south corner late at night and catch flounder and trout under the lights. Jack Carpenter would always run us off. Then we decided we could wade from the lot next door over to the lights(thought we were […]

Re: Port Mansfield 8/26-27 You are not crazy, TX Chicken. Redfish makes some of the absolute best ceviche. The consistency of the meat makes it great for this. Also, one time I was in New Orleans (before Katrina) and had brunch at the Commander's Pallace (of Paul Prudhome and Brennan's fame). They had a cold […]

Re: Trout reg proclamations for 2008 TarponwesThe flounder issues will be TPWD biggest issue this coming year. Croakers will be handled as we discussed last year. Our 5 fish limit and the pressure our Game Wardens are putting on the water will help stop the past abuse of the fishery, but croakers Will have an […]

Re: Under the lights!!! LilRoamThrow the smallest jig you can. 3/32 oz. white TINY twist tail. Fish it about 2 to 3 feet below the surface. The better fish will be on the outside edge of the light. If the trout are real active and popping bait on the surface you can throw a SMALL […]
White Wing Heaven at the Hacienda San Juan Here is an attempt to make you envious. Actually, it’s no attempt at all; I warn you now you’ll be envious, maybe even jealous, definitely curious. However, I also want to extend it out there you’re also invited. To paint the picture, it’s late March, 85 degrees, […]
Re: South of Benny’s Shack near Saucer area!!! Wow. sounds like tons of fun. Dad and I were out at Port Mansfield that same day; had everything planned out– was going to drift same area, or so I think (the whole saucer area) I had my map all hi-lited and stuff. We get there […]

Re: South of Benny’s Shack near Saucer area!!! You just have to force yourself to fish the plastic. At first it might be boring, but once you get a hit/hook-up, you'll be hooked. Overtime you'll build some confidence aswell as develop a confidence lure. There are times when you'll have to throw out a variety […]
Re: South of Benny’s Shack near Saucer area!!! V-rod You should be very pleased with the gulp lures, they are great lures. You might also want to try some blurps or slurps from bass assasin. There are tons of ways to fish these lures but I usually put them on 1/16 – 1/4 oz. jigheads.
Navigation I feel pretty confident navigating the LLM, but there are a few areas that I always steer clear of. Most of my navigation knowledge has come from my father and other experienced anglers who know the area. I also have and occasionally use the “Hook and Line” map. i find that it does a […]
