Rollover Pass is a man made pass from the Gulf of Mexico to the Trinity Bay on the upper Texas Gulf coast.

I got to Rollover Pass about 9 am, last Thursday and was on the
gulf water by 10...........only caught a gafftop the first hour.

Image

At 11 am I get a run, then simultaneously another and I got a double hookup on my hands..............results two bull reds...........I love it when I get the skunk off of me.

Image

Between 11 and 11:45 I caught 9 bull reds...................I tried every thing I could to get 10 bull reds in an hour, but the last 15 minutes, every thing I tried went wrong.

To make a long story short, I started padding in at 2:30 and my totals for the day was 24 bull reds + two sharks and 5 gafftops.

I threw one bait out and within 3 seconds had a hookup.........and all at once this fish jumped 6 times. I knew what it was.

I had 6 doubles + 12 singles on the bull reds. All fish were caught on mullet freelined on the bottom in 11 ft of water.

It was a good day on the water.

Man, i'd live to hit Rollover Pass!
I'm here in the San Antonio area and can't get out that way...

I wanted to hit up Corpus (my wife's family is there, so it's easy to convince her to go there), but we have family coming in this weekend...

Ah well...

One day, maybe I'll get a chance to fish with the infamous "Mythman"...

God Bless,
Doc S

Nice catch! I bet that shark pulled you around a bit?

A bunch of my buddies went to McFaddin Beach and caught around 20 Reds (27-38") kind of small for the surf and caught several sharks up to 5 ft. It is a good time to fish the beach right now I guess, I misssed the trip to fish the marshes. Should have went with them. Thanks for sharing the picks.
