they're here boys...

Willie-Joe and i went and caught us some live menhaden about 4am at cervantes bridge, and headed over to palafox pier.

long story short, i caught a king, and lost another one, and also lost a spinner shark...

the fish i caught was about 18lbs.

no pics though, sorry.:banghead

He's talking about the park at the end of Palafox downtown. Where the bayfront auditorium used to be. Just drive south on Palafox and you will run right into the park. Fishing is premitted and its a really nice park.



Good news on the kings. Where there a lot of menhaden in the bayou?

Did you have to climb over the fence(railing) to gaff your fish? Was it kinda tough gaffing?

it was kinda difficult finding bait... they're not at 17th... but we found them ... live menhaden on 27lb sevenstrand(30"-36") and a (biodegradable) balloon. all the fish ate less than 75 feet from the wall.

I believe it. I've caught kings before on dead menhaden(not even fresh dead, but frozen). These October kings in the bay are hungry and they are not real picky(not that kings usually are)
