Adventure Location: Rockport, Texas
The speckled trout were just waiting for the OFM this morning at his 0830 appointment. The second cast had a fish and go into great aerial feats of acrobatics ..... and shake loose. However in the next thirty minutes the OFM landed six specks from 16“ to just over 18“. Numerous others were hooked, fought and came loose during the close quarters fighting near the bulkhead.
The lure that did all the good is this H and H lure.
We used a 1/4 oz jig head and the lure lasted through all the fish today and several from the last couple of weeks. The lure is usually productive when you find the fish.
The main other thing we have been doing is reading about watercolor techniques. The Aransas County Library here in Rockport has a pretty good collection of art books. The OFM is determined to get good enough that when he paints a rock you can tell at least that it is not an airplane. We know that for him that is a very lofty goal but he does need the challenge.
The art effort is actually very worth while since it keeps him out of trouble for the most part. The we use the cattle prod to keep him focused on trying to have tooooo much fun.
