Was down in Port Aransas on the Texas coast the past five days with the family on vacation.
We really struggled in the bay system and only did good on trout one day. That said the conditions were like none I had ever seen almost no wind gin clear water flat seas.
We ended up shooting outside the packery channel jetties each day and picked up quite a few king fish (king mackerel), all the sharks we could stand up to 3.5 feet one under sized ling and had two hook ups on tarpon. Got to watch one come up and grab the bait. I have never felt anything with so much power and speed in the water alas we could not get either of them to the boat before they came unbuttoned. All of this was within 1/4 mile of the jetties and in water not more than 30ft deep
Hi Bob, how's things going in Wyong?. Down your way a couple of years back but haven't been in NSW since Ebor for the fishing. just getting over some nasty storms up here in Qld, seeing the sun for the first time in a few days. I'm going to NZ in the spring and hope to clean up a few buns while there and perhaps shake the spiders out of my old .303LE (currently owned by my BIL). Cheers Brian
