Happy New Years

Postby jwhit88 » January 11th, 2018, 12:53 am

...from Texas! I miss spearfishing incredibly and moving out here last year has turned me into a die hard rod and reel guy haha. Redfish fishing has been keeping me sane for the past year as I haven't been able to get offshore to shoot fish because of the academy. Maybe just maybe, I'll be able to get offshore here this winter for wahoo! I made a video from some clips over the past couple years in CA and Baja

Heres some reds I've been getting off the beach too

Glad you enjoyed it! Yeah, they are really good, there is a slot size limit on them here in Texas though. We can only keep the ones from 20 to 28 inches.

WOW!!!! So cool. Looks like more than enough to keep the stoke going til you can dive again! These live in Florida too, on the east coast where my parents are. Great pictures. Do you get snook there?

Happy new year Whit! Fishing for Redfish was always something I wanted to do, from what I remember seeing it's super exciting. Those are some of the biggest ones I've ever seen :eek:

Glad you're finding something to replace the itch buddy.

Thank you! There are a few small snook in Galveston and some decent ones south in corpus christi. Its been the coldest winter here in 15 years, snowed twice, so all the snook will for sure be gone in Galveston.
