Got to the spot on the Galveston side Bay side at SLP to be greeted by rain and lightning. This was around 7 am or so. I don’t mind the rain, the fish are wet anyway. The lighting however caused a few trips to the truck. Lol. In between storms I landed a 14.5” trout on super spook jr and one flounder pictured on croaker. There was bait everywhere and some big fish were blowing up on them but they wanted nothing to do with the SS jr or croaker. Water was pretty much perfect color and clarity. About 12” visibility and trout green.
Tide was out going at a perfect speed until around 11 am. The tide then started ripping out. No fishing with that current.
Around noon it slowed and the trout showed up. My buddy and I landed 8 keepers all released. The biggest being 26.5”. Caught by my buddy. About 10 minutes later he sets the hook on a spec that made the 26.5” look small. It rocketed out of the water and shot across the top of the water for about 6 feet, threw the hook and was gone. I know this because it all happened about 15 feet directly in front of me.
Called it a day around 1:30 pm.
