Spring is here and summer is just around the corner. There is no doubt that this winter has been extreme, thus making the “lazy days” of spring and summer greatly anticipated. The sweet smell of warm salt air and the occasional stench of fish and muddy salt flats in Rockport Texas will soon overwhelm my senses. My cold dry skin will be soothed by 90% humidity, a thick lather of sunscreen and occasional fish scales. I will be dreaming of the cold days that I despise now after another long hot year, but for now warm weather is welcome and here. With 2016 in the past, I’m excited about this year’s fishing as last year was great. 2015 was the year of rain. In 2016 we “sipped” the effects of fresh water inflow but this year we should be able to “gulp” the effects. The bays surrounding Rockport Texas have finally received the rainfall needed to bring the ecosystem back to equilibrium. Abundant sea grass, crabs, shrimp and bait fish are only the beginning; the fish have followed. With the excitement and anticipation of 2017 on my mind, I would like to invite you to come experience fishing in Rockport, Texas and create your own stories and memories.
