Suggestions for location, approach?
Looking for a little help from the 2cool community! We stay in Rockport each year, rental house on Copano Bay typically in October, but most recently last weekend. We have two boys, oldest 10 who is a fishing fanatic. Last weekend we fished St. Charles Bay and Ingleside Cove in our small boat. We saw more mullet and small bait fish than I have ever seen before. We tried everything, top waters, DSL, Mirrolures, fresh shrimp, and cut mullet and could not even get bites, no action or keepers. We started in shallows and went to deeper water as it heated up, fishing dawn till noon for three mornings and fished one evening. Not one time did my 10 year old complain, which is great. My youngest only went on one evening trip. It was windy, but we fished the protected shorelines. In previous years, we have picked off a few reds and specs, but never limiting out. Looking for advice on where to fish with small boat or what approach to take, so my oldest doesn't lose his enthusiasm. We prefer not to go with a guide, since our last experience was horrible. Thanks in advance for any help!
