I Love Fishing For Redfish Speckled Trout And Flounder For The Texas Slam

Learn how to go saltwater fishing for redfish, speckled trout, and flounder to catch a Texas Gulf Coast Slam. I love fishing for redfish! My favorite fishing lure for redfish is the Kastmaster silver spoon, with weights of  ¾ ounce to 1 ounce depending on the depth of the water. Most fishermen use live bait shrimp, croaker, piggy perch, small crabs, mud minnows or finger mullet, or fresh cut bait, with any of the previous baits mentioned. The best way for catching redfish with live bait is to rig the bait in a way  that keeps it alive to swim...


Toothy Critters: Handling is the Key

Over the years I have encountered a lot of fish that by no means can be “lipped” after you land them. Although, I have seen more than one angler try to “lip” a toothy critter. The outcome is usually a scream like a scared little kid at a haunted house on Halloween as the blood begins to flow, and fingers are counted.

Soft plastic baits will always produce fish in my opinion, but it may be up to you to decide which...


Surface Poppers…Bam, Fish On!

Its 5 a.m. and false dawn is beginning to light the horizon. You methodically work your popper slowly across a rip a couple hundred feet from shore. As the lure dances into the strike zone you see a swirl, and then within seconds a huge eruption of water appears - thanks to the 30-pound striper that has just mauled your lure! And that my friends is why I love casting surface plugs, especially ones that pop, splash or make a commotion. As in any fishing situation, working poppers is not just a cast and retrieve event like when you use...


Is Fishing About Luck?

Like winning any race, competition, or contest where luck, or lack of it, is said to be a factor…luck most often has nothing to do with it. Luck occurs when preparation meets opportunity.
