Fishing in the Gulf

Water temperature is about 80 degrees

I have fished in lakes all over North and East Texas all my life. Saltwater fishing is a lot different than freshwater. Probably the biggest difference to me was you never know what you will catch and identifying the different species. We finally went on Wednesday and I’m hooked!! We fished in the surf right outside our boardwalk and had a lot of fun.

Fish RigMy setup was a basic bottom rig, a pyramid sinker with 2 leaders of it. I used shrimp for bait and caught 2 at a time more than once.  Almost all the fish were identified (correctly I hope) as Ladyfish and Whiting. All were catch and release.
