Up Against The Wall

Tracy says it is my new Friday M. O.

Sleep on the plane - go to bed early and sleep for four more hours.

Get up at midnight and go fishing in Palacios until daylight.

This is probably not for everyone but it seems to be right up my alley.

The morning was cool and calm when I arrived at the 1st Street Pier at 1:30AM.

There were several fishermen on the pier so I decided to try fishing the seawall. There is a light on the big bend of the wall so I started fishing in the dark as I approached this area.

I picked up my first keeper trout on a Lil' Speck Killer from Texas Tackle Factory. I have found that the glow chartruse on a red jig head is the deadly setup for this spot.

There were no sand trout to be found all night which is pretty unusual. I normally catch 5 sand trout for each speckled trout caught but not this morning. Everything I caught had spots.
