I have never saltwater fished in my life, we are headed down to Goose Island in a couple of weeks. Can I use my bass rods? What kinda bait do I use. Thanks for your input.

I am in Rockport this coming weekend and was curious how the wade fishing is at Goose Island? Any tips on location.

Lynn, the bass rods are fine. Use shrimp (Sea Gun bait next to the Exxon on 35 is close) or plastics.
Mac, lots of folks wade the Bartell Reefs and do well. There is good wading bottom up by the Big Tree launch also, where 12th Street meets Lamar Beach Road.

Live shrimp or live croaker will be your bet bet for filling your box with trout, reds, drum or flounder.

Topwaters early in the AM over the guts in Bartell reef and all over Copano Bay (Just to the north of Goose Island. Fishing pier all night with croakers, mullet, shrimp, or try rattle traps under the lights!
