A Rooster of a Fish Tale
Pat Townsend shares a great story of a Rooster Fish she caught while fishing with her husband in Mexico. I had never heard of a Rooster fish so I had to look it up. It took both her and her husband to bring this one in after a long fight and 2 fishing poles. She said it was as tall as herself. We appreciate her sharing this story in our podcast. Here is what the Rooster Fish looks like:

Texas A & M Corpus Christi, Wetlands on Wheels with Jay Tarkington
The kids really enjoyed themselves catching fish and learning about the wetlands and the great service of the United States Coast Guard.
Took my grandson out fishing last fall on a quest to catch his first fish. Breyton using a mighty might fishing pole and live shrimp at the ICW was able to catch a couple small Rat Reds.
Just before Spring Break I stopped by Port A Jetty to see what kind of catches were being made. The weather was clear and warm and seemed to be a great start for the Spring Breakers. Several Sheepshead were bing caught on live shrimp with several anglers enjoying the day. Check-out their pictures.
Redfish and speckled trout are getting caught! Check-out the fishing reports provided by Captain’s Scott McCune, Justin Cortez, John Little, and George Garza.

Puerto Rico Tarpon Fishing
Tarpon fishing in Puerto Rico was quite an adventure with Captain Jeff. We caught one Tarpon that looked like about 20 lbs but were unable to pull him in the boat. As he got next to the boat he was able to flip his sharp gills around the leader and cut through.This is an in-shore fishing area where you’ll see Tarpon rolling their sides above the water everywhere.
