First off, thanks for all of the info leading up to this point. I am headed to corpus for a week starting this Saturday. I am an avid largemouth bass angler and I am trying to narrow down my tackle to take with me. I have a leader question. Do I need to use a heavy Fluro or a braid leader in case the fish has sharp teeth? I am used to doing the opposite in fresh water. Thanks.

Glad you guys liked the post. Here we are a year later and i'm about to go back down to G town again in a few weeks for a week of relaxing and fishing. Just figured I'd post some more better pics of what I'll take with me


Uploaded with ImageShack.us
Pretty much all my tackle


Uploaded with ImageShack.us

Some line and leader and other misc items like a thing of gulp shrimp and reel oil etc...



Uploaded with ImageShack.us

This my typical wire surf leader based off of the santee rig i use drifting for cat fish.



Uploaded with ImageShack.us

Here are the two rod setups from last year along with one of my smaller bait casting setups for throwing spoons/topwaters and Carolina rigging natural baits. so essentially its my wading rod as the other two are used in sand spikes on the beach.
The far left is a abu garcia revo S with a 6,6' castaway rod

Thanks Snook177 ! Pics say 1000 words. Pics of the different rigs helps alot (that 3 way Carolina w/santee looks wonderful). Never heard of a popping cork.. Wife, son & I plan to go to Rockport & fish the pier. That will be our 1st time to fish saltwater.

I am a NM crappieand Bass fisherman and I am heading down to Texas Gulf coast in my Motorhome. I will end up going Kemah in Febuary and then I will move on to Courpus in March. I bought some crab traps and wondered where would be the best place to place them....Pier...Jetty or not at all this time of year. I bought some Gulp baits but I am not sure which ones to use. Any ideas would help. I like freash fish right from the water so I will release most of them. Is this a bad time of year or not. Any help would be great....Thanks, Larry

I may get blasted but I'm gonna take exceptions to some of the posts, and I will explain as I go along>

1. Always, ALWAYS, rinse your rods and reels after exposing to saltwater. The saltwater gets inside the reel, the water will evaporate leaving SALT. Salt is both corrosive to most metals and absolutely abrasive to all moving parts. Yes after rinsing I always re-lube. Depending on the extent of exposure I have at times used the dishwasher to clean saltwater reels.

2. Tackle. If you know what species of fish you are targeting, a lot of tackle is unnecessary. I recently took a 3 week inshore fishing vacation, and the only tackle I took was 2 spinning rigs, a packet each of circle hooks and swivels, a handful of leads, and a spool of line, and gulf baits. Caught well over 400 speckled trout during the trip. I used one rod/reel rig 98% of the time and only used the second rig while the first was getting a rod tip replaced. You can have too much tackle which will cause you to second guess choices, and expend a lot of time changing rigs.

3. Black Drum - Some would indicate this to be a trash fish. True, you don't get a lot of meat for its size. But, and I learned this from an ole cajun fisherman in southern Louisiana, you can get some great crab cake meat. Boil the fish in large stock pot with ample amounts of zateran's crab boil. Remove the meat from the bones and truly the meat taste as good as crab meat. We use to make crab cakes, gumbo, fish stew, and it freezes well.

4. This comment is in support of caution when fishing salt-water. The flesh-eating bacteria is a huge concern. A friend on mine contracted it and nearly lost his leg. I use a towel to handle all catches, whether speck or slimy catfish. Stingrays and larger sharks get cut off.


Proper planning and respect for the elements should result in a great fishing experience. Tight Lines!
