I recently bought a boat and am just now getting back to fishing. I canoed all over west bay 15 years ago. Baytown is the closest place I've found for me to get salty as I live just south of Conroe. I've made 3 trips out of Thompson's fishing camp in the last 2 weeks and have brought in a few undersized specks, gafftop and of course the dreaded hardhead. It seems like most folks putting their boats on the trailers have more than just a few specks,reds and flounder to clean. I've mostly been fishing live shrimp under a sliding cork and depending on water depth have had the hook anywhere between 18 and about 28" under the cork. I've fished the shore line out to a couple hundred yards off Tri City Beach rd, Ash lake, the wells in Tabb's bay and several of the reefs east of Houston point all the way up to Trinity reef and all I've been doing is killing shrimp. I've also thrown a few artificials; she dog, top dog, cocahoes, gold spoons and other soft plastics. I'd appreciate any help. I'm not asking for GPS coordinates to your favorite honey hole just some "you might try" or "whatcher doing wrong is."
