South Padre Island

Been a wild winter with hunting deer in Kansas and then Christmas with the grandkids so have needed to get caught up. I have been fishing on the Jetty here quite a bit and so far getting some Whiting, Sheepshead and Pompano. 

Most have been caught on a rising tide and off color water with Shrimp Bites and a small piece of shrimp on a #6 hook. I like the smaller hook while others swear by a big hook so try it out and see what you think. 

Took a guided Bay Fishing trip today and results were dismal. Probably 15 Whiting and a few Sand Trout were boated by 15 people so not too good a day. A front was moving in so maybe that put them off. 

I plan on taking some more trips as its pretty cheap at $20 for 4 hours and bait and tackle are provided. Not bad for a day on the water. Its not my favorite kind of fishing but still fun.
