Thought you might like to read this note my fishing partner posted on http://www.austinbassfishing.com/forum/coastal-reports/29319-port-oconnor-march-12-a.html#post214159. We had a good time and it is nice to get the occasional nice feedback.
“On Monday I had the great opportunity and pleasure to fish with Doug Coppernoll of the excellent blog Fish Catching Travel. I had been reading his blog for a few months and had emailed him on a few occasions asking for tips. He was very gracious with his advice and that ending up with him joining me in POC on Monday. You can read his report on our trip here: Port O’Connor – slow day with a nice finish on the trout. | Fish Catching Travel
I learned so much from Doug in one day and I’m so thankful that he took me under his wing. I now know that I can go back and have a solid foundation from which to work out of POC. All the spots we fished were a very short run from the launch. And about the late launch…that was my fault. I had just finished too very hard, cold, windy, wet days in the ULM (I’ll report separately) so that I requested we start a little later. In hindsight, I found myself up and ready by 7am and probably should have just called Doug and told him to come on down.
Doug is a fishing machine. He had just finished a week on Amistad and went to Coleto Creek the day after we fished. In addition to the 35 trout Doug mentions in his post, I caught a few under reds, an under flounder (my first one of those) and about the biggest croaker I’ve ever seen. I don’t recall if Doug caught anything other than trout. He definitely caught the three best of the day. I had estimated our total number to be around 45-50 including non trout. That may be an over-estimation but I think we were around 25 for the day when we whacked em at dark. So check out Doug’s report as it’s better than I could tell it and check out his blog if you’re not familiar with it. He’s got lots of great content and just loves to fish”
Folks this is why we need to take others fishing. Whether it is someone just starting out, or maybe does not get to fish like us hardcores, it is ok to share information. We fisherman are all in this together. So help a brother out when ever you get the chance.
Good Luck and Tight Lines.
