Report for Rockport Walk-ins

I've been getting a new boat built out - it's done except for one more bit of aluminum work. While I've been waiting for it, I've been fishing walk-in spots locally and, frankly, it would have been hard to justify taking a boat out anyway.

I caught this bunch this morning. I had business to take care of early, so I didn't start until about 10:30 in the morning. (On Monday I caught some very nice fish at around 1:00 in the afternoon.) I had my fish and was back to the truck before 11:30. You can see in the pictures that four were just adequate, but the big one was a pig. She tail-walked several times.

I've caught all my fish for the last month on small Skitterwalks and MirroLure Catch 200's. (The Catch 2000 feels like it's been worked over with an icepick, though the picture doesn't show it.) Nearly all have been in 3 feet of water or less, even after the sun is well up.

Mullet are the key. These fish are gorging right now. Most are very fat, as you can see, and their stomachs are full of bait fish, with mullet being the most common by far. Don't knock yourself out looking for protected, clear water. The wind has kept the water stirred up most days, but the fish don't know that they aren't supposed to eat when it's like that. I'm working both lures with fairly rapid retrieves. The Skitterwalks with constant small twitches, while reeling fairly quickly. And the Catch 2000's with a fairly constant, moderately fast retrieve. I know the 2000 is a twitch bait, but right now the mullet are cruising the shorelines, and that's what the trout are looking for.

I'm looking forward to getting the new boat on the water, and I promised a couple of people a thread and some pictures. But if you're shore-bound, this is a good time to walk in and pick up some good fish.
