Wanted to test out some soft plastics obtained at the 43 Annual Houston Fishing Show on Saturday.

After getting all the "honey-do's" completed yesterday, I decided I was going fishin' even if there wasn't much daylight left in the day.

Did a quick wade from 5:00 pm to dusk with one of my son's friends, since my son was working.

Hit an area that held both shell reef and grass beds close by, so Tim hit the grass beds and I fished the reef.

Tide change was 4:00 pm to a high tide, but with a double tide in effect Sunday, there was no significant tidal movement.

About 5:30 pm Tim landed the only fish worthy of a pic and the honor of making the stringer.

The 1/8 oz. TEXAS RATTLER Black/GoldEye rigged with a Chickenboy "Chicken-of-the C" 4" shrimp soft plastic is the combo that this nice flounder hit.

Notice how the U-Lock™ locking device on the TEXAS RATTLER™ holds the soft plastic in place from a vicious sharp-toothed flounder without tearing it like a conventional jighead locking device - like a wire or lead prong - would do to your soft plastic.


Not much bait activity as darkness closed in so we headed to house the since we had scratched the 'fishin' itch' for the day.

On the 3rd pic of the Flounder ,,, Look into the GOLD EYE on this pic and you can see how powerful the reflection capability is with the diamond cut glass eyes I use on the TEXAS RATTLER™ - you can see the anglers hand and camera taking the photograph .. now is that cool or what ? cool
