Ok, new to surf fishing but not gulf (used to go to Rockport a couple times a year most of my life with the family)

we've been out about 5 times, and not sure of where some of the places are that I keep reading... any help as to where to try?

We keep heading to the same spot so that we can learn to read the water and try to get the lures/live bait down.

Its the exit on bolivar where the bird sanctuary is.

So far we've used dead shrimp, mullet, croaker, spoons, and Norton Sand eels (plum, pepper, and white/pepper with chartruese) with only mild to fair luck
Mullet has caught 3 sharks, croaker has caught 1, dead shrimp caught a sand trout and spanish mackerel, Norton caught a couple of small specks, gold spoon caught a single keeper speck but thats pretty much it. Mud minnows caught nothing - are they worthless?)
I've also thrown a couple of topwaters but no luck yet. got a bone/chartruese catch2000 and a silver with blue top (can't remember the name)

We're trying to catch Specks to keep, and my 13yr old likes to catch sharks.

Where is the north jetty I keep hearing about? Any other decent starting places or are we on the right track were we are at? Sure would like to stay on the Galveston side of the ferry to get in the water faster, I'm driving from north Tomball!

We try and hit the water between 7am and 8am, fish till about 11 or 12 and it seems to die down. Wadefishing, no kayak or boat. The little sharks are fun but are already getting annoying.

Any advice without giving away your top secrets would be appreciated! We are trying to bring home more than 1 fish.

Heading back there Saturday morning I think. We tried monday july3rd but nonstop rain kept us to a single sand trout and spanish mackerel and some tiny sharks... At least we caught something!

Thinking about pelican island though because the ferry takes for-e-v-e-r it seems.
