Took a couple buddies out and 2 young boys. Started fishing the jetties which have been super slow lately. After throwing artificial for a couple hours, we decided to run out for some king's. The water just never cleared up at all, but on the way out there was a shrimpboat just drifting, so we eased up a 5 ling decided to show their faces. We caught all 5 , with 2 keepers. I hooked the bigger fish and handed the rod to the 13 yr old.....**** did it tire him out, lol. I had to hold him by his life jacket the whole fight, but we got her to the gaff.

Wow, my now 27 yr old caught his first Ling about the same age, hit a Snapper Slapper on the way down out of S. Padre - he was stoked. That is a fine fish and an awesome haul. Never seen those Lings be so eager to eat!
