I'll take your word on that, seems that no one on this forum knows anything about fishing in the Freeport, Surfside area.
Seems to me the salt guys are not as friendly as the freshwater guys. I asked a simple question about what line guys use down on the salt and no responses. That would have received 20 plus comments on the bass page. Oh well, I'll just use some power pro and be done with it. From what little I know about that area though, the lakes off Christmas and Bastrop bay are doing well for trout.
