Matagorda - Day 3

Tuesday began with a trip to McNab Lake. The wind had died down some overnight but before long it was back up to a steady 15mph. I managed to find one keeper red in John's Pocket which was fooled by a 1/4 oz gold spoon.



On the way out I came up on this feral hog and managed to get close enough to almost reach out and touch him before he realized what I was. Check out the video below.

After lunch we tried the piers again and I shot these two videos of the new fisher in the family.

Blue Crab anyone?


Tracy and I were joined by some good friends from Bay City for supper. Our usual hangouts were closed so we had to settle for dinner at the local bar & grill called The Reef. The cusine wasn't exactly low fat but tasted good anyway.



We took a sunset walk out on the pier and spotted the schooling mullet for the shot below.



The day ended after a nice visit with David & Sharron.

By the time we said goodnight we were all ready for a good night's rest.

Nice video of Tracy I'm impressed! Really got a kick out of the crab he was lively.
