Is Salt Water Worth It?

Recommended Posts

I've fished out of Venice half a dozen times and am going back in March and probably again in October. When a bull redfish hits, it's like being shocked with 120. They are incredibly strong...and I've been out for tuna three times. The first two were OK, but the last one had me moaning.  We got into blackfin near a shrimp boat, and after catching two on spinning gear and a Rat-L-Trap, I was worn out. Then I thought I'd try one more cast and hooked the largest black of the trip.  

I've always gone with a group, but this time I'm staying an extra day and getting a guide to show me some areas that I can access for trout and reds that will work for my boat.

Why did you move north to more cold weather?

We enjoyed south Texas while we were there but the summer heat can be brutal. It was like 9 months of heat and 3 months of cooler weather.  Also got tired of worrying about hurricanes and tropical storms. We closed on our house in Corpus 1 week before hurricane Harvey hit. We enjoy the seasonal weather up here.

I have considered moving back to Louisiana for some Gulf Fishing but my wife says stay where we are and we are getting too old.

I actually had everything for my Charter but like I say at the last minute Arthritis put me down. We had everything paid ahead even places to stay.

We’re getting tired of the cold weather in January and February.  Just grey cold and nothing to do outdoors.

Use to be I considered weather weather and nothing I could do about it. I have pictures of me out hunting in the mountains completely covered with snow.

I forgot to add because I’m on Blood Thinners I can’t take Anti Inflammatories for my Arthritis just more Pain Medication.
