Spent the weekend with my aunt and uncle in El Campo. We hit west matagorda bay hard Saturday. Flat water and beautiful weather....even the game warden was cool. We were the only boat in the bay until after lunch. Even then only say three other fishing boats all afternoon.

Couldn’t get live bait because of super bowl weekend so we worked artificial baits, dead shrimp and dead mullet hard.

Only caught one fish but was about a 45 minute fight on 15 lb line....

Didn’t have a tape or scale but Over 36” and believe close to 50 pounds compared to the valves I carry around at work...

Nice catch and release black drum...

It was an awesome day on the water... and we didn’t have to clean fish when we were done.... up

First time I’ve been able to get down there on the water in about 3 years...

I’m changing my priorities....life is to short to work yourself to death...

Even had a great visit with the Game Warden. He did a quick safety inspection then we sat there BS’ing for about 20 minutes... Great guy! Of course I’ve never had a bad experience with a game warden....

Sounds like a decent day on the water. Bet that was quite a fight.

Biggest fish I’ve ever caught on rod and reel....every time we would get it close enough to see the boat it would strip off about fifty yards of line....circled the boat three times....
