Rockport was GLASS 1-4 through 1-6!

I rolled in to town on Friday evening and the bay was glass, forecast held through Sunday as I left. Water was still very much out, but for the most part, that had no bearing on my plans because I had my daughters with me and we were going to drown shrimp in deep water. I called up pocjetty and told him my plans, he gave me pointers on locations to target and even brought over a bunch of sheepy rigs for me to tie on! Such a prince. I throw plastics in shallow water, I didn't know squat about fishing rocks and jetty structure for sheepshead.

The water was ripping out in the morning and then flooding back in after about 11. I struggled a little with my anchor at first, but finally found purchase and we stayed and caught fish until my youngest announced we needed a try a new spot. We took a boat ride, then another boat ride, then I cast netted some small mullet for a different approach to things, but we were already close to Conn Brown by that point and we'd been on the water for 6 hours, so we made a small effort with setting out poles but packed it in in short order after I started catching skip jacks on plastic, and nothing else.

Petting the dolphin was their favorite part, then the boat rides, then the unlimited* sodas, then the catching of fish... oh well, at least it made the list. They even let me box a few without too much protest.

Awesome, I could have loaned you my jetty anchor I built. After losing a couple nice store bought anchors, I got creative & built one.

I saw a couple of boats that looked like yours headed out of the jetties, assumed they were headed to the rigs. I’ve gotta learn that game at some point.

Ah, Barron, those are great pics. Those girls may not be as dedicated to catching fish as you are, but they will always remember the days you spend with them. Dolphins come up and check out boats, but it's almost like that one is cooperating to make it a good day for them. You're a good dad.

Well done. Quality time on the water with the kiddos. My oldest daughter at 24 still enjoys the dolphin sightings more than the fishing. Kuddos to Pocjetty for giving up those coordinates to the trophy sheepy hole.

Awesome pictures! I'm taking my daughter down there in a couple weeks and would love to get her on some fish. Not looking for coordinates or anything, but could you give a quick rundown on the setup you were using? Weights, hook size, etc. I always throw plastics so I'm totally clueless on this type of fishing.

A man who has Gus McCrae as his avatar picture is okay in my book. PM sent.
