Saltwater Jack is a Landlubber (+10 to -10)
I made a run to Bolivar yesterday afternoon. I did not arrive until 4:00 or a little later. Water was high and flat. I fished the 2nd gut and caught a couple of small sharks and probs with catffish sucking the bait dry.
Close to dark, I was able to cross the gut to the third bar and make a few casts. Had a strong run but came off after about a minute. Rebaited and caught a 40"/28# Red. She had many spots on both sides of the lower tail. No other bites thereafter.
I have fished the Bolivar beach forever and have been wanting to try other areas like SLP, Galvez beachfront, Surf Side. Just can't make myself make a change. You guys have any preference on location??

I have had my best luck at the Pass or on Bolivar near cuts to inland bayous that hold bait. I definitely feel safer on Bolivar, and it is usually more secluded. I used to fish surfside beach a lot as well, but it can be hit or miss in my experiences.

My norm is to fish the surf just west of the slough (drain) at Johnson Circle. I started fishing that location when the A Frame was still there. Kind of become my location. Have fished the Water Tower at SLP but not much luck there for me. What is it like closer to the pass if you come in the road under the bridge??

Some of my buddies have been getting into them thick in the Galveston ship channel. 6 or 7 in an evening. I haven’t had a chance to hit the surf in a few weeks.

Bull reds incoming?

Head up to High Island or Sea Rim. You’ve fished the surf at other locations for years. Time to see and learn something different. There is a bait shop in Winnie if you need it.

I used to goto that area of surf long ago. Bull Reds were plentiful up there during the spawning runs.

Prepare for a WTH moment if you drive up the beach to Sea Rim.

They are catching lots of them in Baffin right off the shorelines and piers. What drives me crazy is that everyone keeps them and then goes and buys another over sized stamp. My BIL got a 50'' a few days ago right at the mouth of Baffin on the new to him Kenner. Quick pic and released.

Yeah that tag was designed for unavoidable accidents, not to intentionally remove prime breeders from the stock.
