I recently moved to Rockport, and have been visiting the middle coast areas heavily since May.
One of my favorite things to do is fish Copano Bay Bridge about 1 to 5 am. Normally, I can wear out the >15" trout, with quite a few skipjack/ladyfish thrown in. Also, I will come across one at jetties, piers, and the surf.
But I haven't caught one since August. I normally can pick one up on artificial or dead shrimp/ fishbites, but have yet to come across one. Even people I occasionally ask who aren't long-lining a chunk of squid on a Zebco 202 haven't come across them, but I don't ask much.
Anyone actually catching them? Feel free to send them to Rockport if you get tired of them. Thank you.
P.S. the only thing I haven't tried yet is live shrimp, but I can't see how it would change anything
