Conditions weren't ideal, but I had the itch to get back on the water to test out the new Neptune anchor and try a few winter spots. Traveled to the end of the Texas City Dike to find super low tides mixed with the ship waves sucking all the water out of the launch, note the video below (sorry for the vertical camera angle, never remember to turn my phone). This shows why it's so important to be aware of your surroundings while launching here. We looked for protected water and fished a few cuts and managed to find the super spotted red below, counted 58 spots (give or take). Caught a few other reds and black drum on live shrimp under popping corks and 3" white gulps with pink tails under popping corks, no trout our flounder. The tides were super low with a strong incoming tide, the winds were a solid 12-15mph and slowly changed from the South as the morning went on. Water clarity was solid in areas protected by the wind. Oh yeah, the Neptune Anchor; it worked great in mud, wouldn't hold at all in sand.
