FISHING IN BETWEEM RAIN SHOWERS HAVE BECOME A WAY OF LIFE HERE

Most of last week was spent either waiting out or dodging thunder showers here on the lake for most fishermen. When you could get out finger mullet was the bait of choice under a popping cork. Because of the fresh water coming down the system it has been hard to keep live shrimp alive. The good news is if we can get down on the south end around the Cameron jetties the water is clear and salty. It has been a long time since we can remember this much rain and bad weather in August. We have had some good catches when we have been able to get away for the dock and here are a couple of pictures. You can see them all by clicking here
