The fishing was great on the bays near Rockport and Port Aransas. We started fishing for speckled trout using the old standby of a popping cork and live shrimp. The fishing was good and the speckled trout were hungry. After catching our trout, we decided to spend some time looking for redfish and black drum. Again with live shrimp, but free lined or with a small weight. Everyone caught fish and had a great time.
