SurfSide and Galveston 7/13

Boys and I got a wild hair yesterday and drove down from Longview around 1am. Got to SS at Sunrise and fished the jetty. I got 2 undersized specks on a gold spoon right away. 16 year old caught about 7 smacks using a much faster retrieve. 18 year old fished live shrimp and caught nothing but ribbonfish and what people were calling bluefish. By 9am it was too crowded for my tastes, and nobody was paying any attention to size limits (anyone ever seen a warden out there?) so we headed to Galveston.

We found an rock groin not too far from 61st street (a shorter one) and after catching 10-12 of those bluefish things, something turned on and it went awesomely crazy. I caught probably 20 specks in the hour that followed, with 7 or so legal and the largest about 19. All on spoons. 16 year old was a couple behind me but did nearly as well. 18 year old spent most of that time trying to catch a massive Sheeper that was hanging by the rocks, but eventually gave in and started throwing a kastmaster. Caught 3 specks and a big sandtrout in just a few minutes. In all it lasted about an hour and was an absolute blast. Saw a big school of jacks hammering bait a few hundred yards out too, but they never came any closer.

Pretty awesome day in all. Made the long drive worth it!

I got out there all the time just to check the water out on my lunch break. I have not seen a game warden one time in about 3 or 4 months
