With the super high tides, beach access has been tough. Looks much better for the weekend, although tides are still running above normal. Live mullet has been plentiful and not a problem to net around Packery. With the high water draining from the Laguna Madre on the outgoing tide, Packery channel will be full of forage, so the predator fish may be out in force. You should have a very good chance of catching some redfish on live finger mullet, large chunks of cut mullet or ladyfish from the jetties or in the surf. With the water clearing this weekend, I would also look for Spanish Mackerel, Bluefish and Jacks to hit as well. For artificials, I would try the usual topwaters in the channel mainly for trout, various spoons, or twitch baits such as the Rapala X-Rap or Mirrolures. Expect crowds as a lot of anglers will be about, and Shark a Thon is going on this weekend also.
