What a great day to fish. 75 degrees, light wind, small waves, and the fish feeding forecast was excellent. If you ever fished before you know that things don’t always work out that way. But today it was….we did only catch 3 fish, but it was a beautiful day. Took our umbrella and table down and just enjoyed the calming waves and sunshine. Today made up for all the rainy and windy weather we have had for the last few days.
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.
My 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.
