were fishing near the end of the south jetty at Port A. We anchored
near the Island Queen so Jake had quite an interested audience
to catch this monster. It was his first tagged fish with his first
fishing licence he was so proud to have.
We went to the East Flats last friday. We were almost plowed over by a huge school of reds while wading near the northern shoreline. We could see the school coming from about 50 yards away because of the wake they were making out in front of them. I through a finger mullet out in front of them and one of them grabbed it as soon as it hit the water, but kept swimming toward me so fast I couldn't keep the slack out of my line. As soon as it swam by it snapped my line before i could even react. Now I know what a redfish run looks like. What a rush!
We are from Orange Grove and really enjoy reading you articles on the web. Keep up the good work"
9/3 "Sent in from Zach Hart - Zach Hart with 24" red and Matt Davis (Fish4Brains) with 29" tagged red caught in South Bay, 8-22
8/26 from Cathy Golla who writes "The Golla gang managed this catch from the 35(mm PINS) on Sunday. 13 trout to 23-inches, lots of under size reds with a few keepers, one flounder, one 24-inch Spanish Mac. and some fare size whiting. Gold spoons worked well in the early morning but we had to switch over to live finger mullet mid day. The surf is loading up with migrating mullet and making for some real good bait opportunities."

Got this nice one from Trevor "Aggie" Johnson who writes:
"Tyler, Here is a picture of the trout I caught at JP Luby on Friday morning 6/28. The fish measured 28.5" and hit a Plum/Chart TTK. usually I release my fish, but this one was kept for a friend who was coming into town last weekend and I was unsure of our fishing prospects. "
6/22 "S" Davis with a nice mess of surf trout caught on the Padre Island National Seashore.
Via Capt. Charlie Newton who sent this in:
"Juanice Miller, Rockport, TX., caught this 29" tagged redfish. This was her first time ever to go out on the water in a boat and fish. She had a blast and they caught 9 other redfish and this 29" tagged one, plus one 20" trout. As Capt. Charlie Newton ( www.redfishcharters.com ) ( 800 862-7987 ) their guide would say "I've ruined another one, now she will want to go all the time." Her and her husband Steve sure enjoyed the short day's (2 1/2 hrs.) fishing to catch all these."
The picture says it all.
From Nick Meyer 6/1 "Check this out. I was cutting up a Whiting for a Shark bait and found this in its stomach. A fish bite. Lime green. I pulled it out and used it to catch some more Whiting. My granddad always told me "try and feed the fish the bait they have been eating". "Don't try to give a Bear apples when its looking for berry's" Seems I had better stock up on more fish bites. Regards Nickaway "
John Morris sent these that he took in late April with angler Randy Kravig of San Antonio getting this nice jack and shark.
Nathan Hodgkins and Brad Schwirtlich caught these two bull reds 4/14 around the 3 mile mark on the Padre Island National Seashore. They waded out to the second bar to nab these 40 inchers.
Jim Green who writes "It has taken me three years to land my first drum. I have been learning on my own and finally it has happened. I caught this one on the 25th of Feb at the pier where the ferry's are in Port A (Roberts park).
