Bring the 10/0s and 12/0s because you’re going to need them here for big game shark fishing. Tigers, Bulls, Blacktips, and Spinners make regular visits here and you never know, you may catch a record shark here. We also sell shark baits in the bait store.
No need to fly to Mexico to catch that monster Tarpon, we catch them here all the time. During the spring and summer the tarpon will be back, breaking poles, tearing up drags, and doing that awesome tail dance that they do. In Texas, it’s catch and release on Tarpon, but if you want to mount one you can purchase a tag that allows you to keep one.
Come down, and the friendly local fisherman will teach you how to slideline. A slideline is a rigging using two rods that keeps your live bait swimming on the top water. This attracts King Mackerel, and you will know when you get one on as he will strip 100 yards off your reel in about 4 seconds.
RED DRUM (AKA REDFISH)
When the schools of Reds come in, the rods start bending. Red Drum is a very tasty and sought after fish for it’s excellent table fair. It’s not uncommon to see 7 or 8 different people with huge redfish on the line at one time.
Not as sought after as Red drum, but nonetheless they get huge and will give you a great fight. This is not a big school fish like the Red drum, but when you get one one, be prepared for a battle.
COBIA (AKA LING)
Another very desired fish, Cobia get very large and will fight to the last. The delicate white meat of this fish is favored by many fisherman.
JACK CREVALLE (AKA JACKFISH)
Not very good eating but worth the fight. Often used as Shark bait for it’s bloody flesh, Jackfish will fight you until the death. This is one of the strongest fish around with a very high endurance level, so be prepared for smoking reels.
SPECKLED SEA TROUT (AKA SPECS)
Another very desired meat, the Spec can be caught from 15 inches to 40 inches. When the schools of specs come in, they come in the thousands. It is so easy to limit out on Specs here, even a young child would have little problem.
