I am an older newbie. I am retired and recently bought a bay boat (Sea Pro) and have only been out 3 times since the first of March..this weather has been a bad stretch of wind and water. The first two times I went out at Tiki in west bay ad fished by the bridge and drifted towards Green's reef. Caught several red fish next time nothing...Went to TX city fished the concrete boat and the jetties and caught some red fish and black drum. I need to find a few fishing spots to get me started in Galvestion bay. I live in Pasadena. I never caught a salt water fish on atificials ...where I fished growing up in Palacios shrimp was cheaper than lures. I would like to learn more about them. Weather permitting I am ready most days to fish. Appears more people wade than fish from their boats. Been reading and learning good tips.
