Yakety_Yak here with another report. I decided that since the fish were biting the week before (my previous report) that I would run back to Galveston for some more saltwater therapy. After packing up stuff and making a run for the Buc-ee's at Exit 17, I made my way to Galveston. I arrived at just the right time. I didn't want to get there too early and so it was mission accomplished. I arrived at 8:30 pm and by the time I loaded up the yak and parked the car, I was on the water by 9:00 pm.

Now I know I could show you red fish after red fish and after red fish but that would be redundant (the same goes for trout). The bite was so on that I could of caught my limit of reds and trout several times over. The fish were there and they just happened to like what I was throwing. I decided to bring my usual six rod setup. That's right, you heard me. I brought six rods. If you think I'm kidding, ask anyone that fishes with me. If you think that's crazy, you should see me spider rigging for crappie (Even though you don't see all the rods, I spider rig with nine rods. Here you see six. The others are on the side slightly behind me.).......

The weather was nice and the winds were fairly calm. It was calling for 13 mph winds but somehow it was around 6 mph the entire time I was there. Nobody was there kayak night fishing except me. I had the water all to myself. Here are just a few pics.

After limiting fairly quickly I decided to head back to shore so that I could get back home. The fishing was great and a mess of fish to clean. I told my wife that if she let me go fishing that I would clean and cook the fish the next day for dinner. She agreed and I was able to bring home the fish! smile

After packing, I headed to Buc-ee's for some coffee (Hardly anyone was in there. I brought plastic gloves so I would not come in contact with anything.)

After getting some coffee and some ice, I checked to make sure the straps were okay on the yak before heading back to Houston.

Once I made it home, I took a quick shower and went to bed. When I woke up, I went to go clean my gear and fish.

In this next pic, this shows one of my smaller reds compared to some of the trout I caught. The trout were big and fat!!

I told my wife I would cook dinner so I did. As you can see, there was carbs and more carbs (except the protein the fish had to offer, lol.). The family enjoyed the fish as did I.

Thanks for reading and tight lines!!
