The Aransas Bay is made up of some deeper water and channels and some very shallow grass flats and shell bars. The redfish are usually found in very shallow on a rising tide and speckled trout are usually found in pot holes and on drop offs. Keeping your bait in these areas will increase your catch rate. The location where you fish in as important as the bait you use. Using an experience guide can increase you success. my fisherman today really enjoyed the process of learning and had great fillets for dinner.
