Hurricane Harvey unleashed mother nature’s furry on Rockport Texas in late August, 2017. It’s been difficult to look at the destruction and focus on my job however, it’s 2018 now and I’m truly excited! I’m happy to say that the fish did not take the same hit that humans have. As a matter of fact, FISHING HAS BEEN AMAZING. Unlike the terrestrial landscape, the changes in marine habitat are subtle yet noticeable to the trained eye. I say this, but not in a negative way. A storm such as Harvey flushes, cleans and removes decade’s worth of stagnant water. You could say that hurricane Harvey actually revitalized the bays. This invigorates my soul and keeps me grounded after times of turmoil. Over the next two months I will be hunting for TROPHY FISH as it is, ‘that time of year.’ Both trophy speckled trout and over sized drum season occurs during February and March. In addition, warm spells will result in great mixed bags of keeper reds, trout, drum, flounder and sheepshead. I’m truly blessed to have my profession, my job and my life. Maybe it’s time you invigorate your soul? Just give me a shout and we’ll go fish! ASK ABOUT SPRING BREAK DISCOUNTS FOR BOTH FISHING TRIPS AND HOTEL ACCOMMODATIONS.
