I hail from San Antonio, Texas, but it often feels like I was meant to be born on an island or somewhere closer to the water. Nearly every weekend, you’ll find me exploring the Texas coast in search of that next exciting catch or simply relishing the beauty of the outdoors, even when the fish aren’t as cooperative. Whether it’s a journey miles down the beach for an offshore fishing adventure or a trip inland to enjoy the crystal-clear waters, my wife and daughter love to join me in these escapades. They’re such avid enthusiasts that they even accompany me to Florida for kayak tournaments.
In my neck of the woods, the primary species we target include red drum, speckled trout, and flounder. It’s hard to beat the thrill of tangling with a robust red drum year-round, but during the winter months, the larger trout provide quite the challenge.
