Heading to Rockport this weekend for some guided red fishing. We go every year around this time and have a blast but the fishing off our rentals pier is never productive, unless you count hardheads. I'm rigged out pretty well with my catfish gear. 7.5ft rods on Abu 6500s. So I've got the gear to fight some decent fish but I only go to the coast once or twice a year so I never really find any spots and I'm not too keen on that copano pier although its better than the rental pier I'm sure.
So what what you guys do? I usually have no problem catching bait off our pier, mullet and croaker mostly. What are some spots I can hit up that can be productive at night or daytime? I'll be out there for 4 days and only goin with the guide one day I think.
Also I've got a couple 10ft surf rods with okuma avengers, is it worth the trip to Port A to fish the surf or should I just stay in the bay?
Thanks for any info guys. Feel free to PM if you want
