Farewell Dirty Water

Me and Raymond went out for a quick trip this morning on Galveston Bay. We caught a variety of species underneath the birds including spanish mackeral, ladyfish, sand trout, gafftop, and speckled trout. Fish were blowing up all around us for nearly an hour. Anything and everything we threw caught fish. We were fishing in 5′ – 8′ of water and the water color was sandy green. I shot a lot of video this morning but I’m not going to have time to edit it before I leave. I’m southbound this afternoon heading for Corpus Christi for two full weeks of non-stop fishing. Part of my time down there I’m going to be assisting as Camp Instructor for the Outdoor Texas Saltwater Kayak Camp. I’ll be post reports and photos throughout the week as long as I’m able to get an internet connection. I’ll be shooting a lot of footage but probably won’t post up any videos until I return.

Here’s a teaser video from this morning…
