I fished with Captain Ernest Cisneros on Monday 6/12. We were targeting snook at my request. It's been a goal of mine for a while to catch a Lone Star snook, and that finally happened. We caught several that day. They ranged from 18"(mine)-30.5". My father-in-law's took top prize at 30.5". Aaron, Ernest's son, came in a close second with his going 29.5". I also had an "accidental" catch of two redfish (24" and 25") and a 17" trout. All fish were caught on topwaters. On Tuesday my FIL and I went out to the same spot to try for some more. All Ernest's charters until Thursday were in different areas, so I told him we'd keep tabs on the snook for him . I caught another snook at 22" and a 19" red before the wind died at about 9:30. With the wind the bite died too. Gave it another shot on Wednesday and hit it just right. My buddy Charlie who'd chartered Ernest with us on Monday joined us this time. He brought his brother and step dad. Between the five of us we landed 10 snook. None were under 24" this day. I came home the winner with my own 30.5" snook. My FIL also landed two 19" reds. Again, all fish on topwaters. Thursday we let Ernest have his shoreline back and drifted Long Bar. We picked up four trout from 20-22". This time we were using TTKII Juniors in pump/white/chart. It became a parking lot at Long Bar at about 10:00 AM and the bite died, so we headed in to get the boat ready for the trip back to Houston on Friday. Last night Ernest called me and said they caught 18 snook on Thursday! He is on them big time right now, so if you've ever wanted to catch one, give him a ring.
