I am taking my old v bottom 12 foot jon boat to Corpus on the 23rd and plan to launch near Doc's seafood restaurant and do some fishing. I have been in same area with a guide before and we did pretty well. Plan is to fish in the canals after dark with some live bait. May also do some gigging in the area. I don't have a trolling motor so will have to anchor up in the canals to avoid touching docks and private property. Assume canals aren't too deep. I would appreciate any advice. Thanks!

i'd be wary of anchoring in a canal. i assume you'll be fishing the lights in the canal. if you snag someone's light with your anchor there will be hell to pay. i'd go ahead and invest in a small trolling motor and battery.

A solid push pole would work in the canals. Stealthy too. I'd have both if you can.

Returned from Corpus yesterday, great trip. Caught a couple of limits of trout and 4 red fish with 1 bull red. Used live shrimp for bait.

Trolling the canals at night is seriously underrated as a way to fill your ice chest.
