Fishing Porpoises

Cruising the open bay (E Matty), saw 3 Porpoise working over an area. Looked like a female and 2 pups had some bait hoarded up and they were doing circles around the hoarded up bait. Looked strange. Upon closer look 3 large schools of redfish were working with them. They were circling like you would see under a submerged light. Immediately hooked up with upper slot rods. Brilliantly orange colored. Got those in boat and got 1 more before they went down. Never seen that in my decades of fishing bays. Couldn't tell if the Porpoise were feeding on the reds (maybe rat reds mixed in) or both species were working same bait. Ive caught trout with Porpoise (Porpoise love trout) in the area but never reds. Winds were light that day and lots of needle fish that day. Limited on both trout and reds. Anyone ever seen that?

Only experience I’ve ever had is the bite completely shut down when they show up.

Bet that was pretty awesome to see.

The reds were probably pushing bait and the dolphins moved in on the action. I've seen them do that a few times when the reds effectively push a large school of mullet off the flats.

PS: There are no porpoises here. They are found in almost every other large sea/gulf/ocean, but their are no porpoises in the Gulf of Mexico or any Texas bays. You're seeing bottlenose dolphins.

I’ve seen that 3 or 4 times. It’s amazing to watch them herd then stun their prey with their tails. I’ve never been able to tell what they had cornered but it’s something to watch.

I know that there are no porpoises in Texas waters but I have called them that all my life and still do so. Communication is about understanding and I knew exactly what the OP was talking about.

kingfish

Had them chase hooked kings offshore. Saw one grab about a 25# king and take him down after a release.
