If you don't want your arm's tired and stretched
out don't throw a bait into the ship channel over beside Ingleside.
The big drum are running and are biting every bait insight. They
are tons of fun to catch, but please remember to deflate them. They
fight so hard coming up they pump themselves up with air and you
need to stick them to release them or they can't go back down and
float away and die.
I've caught them on dead shrimp and cracked crab
this past week. This past heavy norther spooked the reds for a few
days and keep a lot of fishermen home, but the reds are back and
are hitting on dead shrimp and cut mullet. Live mullet and mud minnows
have been hard to find lately, but the shrimp has been good bait
this week. I have found redfish in South Bay, Morris Cummings Cut,
Outside Beach and in the channel on the other side of the bridge
going to Port Aransas.
Good catching to you.
