The only thing I've ever caught under birds are gafftop and skipjacks.
Ha, yeah, and they can be fun too! I've heard that a lot and experienced it too. But in just the few times I've gotten into this, we caught some decent little just under or overs trout in okay numbers. But that was ten years ago so...
Just looking for a way to help this guy get into some success with our relative inexperience. I'm wondering too if East or West Matagorda would be better for this, but I've never been over there.
