Yes BODA, fish were cleaned and eat'en. I take filets, cut any blood on flesh, soak in ice water two hours and they are as good as it gets for white meat and only 1 worm found in our box of drum.
BUERRICH, Rockport area .... drifted and Fished deeper holes in the flats - about 1 in 5 holes had fish, and we used power pole to silently and quickly set an anchor while we fished that particular school. Popping corks w/ live shrimp => for trout and for Big Drums => No popping corks, freelined live shrimp on jigs. Used several poles and/or and re-rigged quick depending on if we drifted into trout or it was drum.
