Savvy offshore anglers know when dolphins (and sharks) are thick around rigs and wrecks the snapper hold tight to the structure and will not bite. I have found the opposite to be true around jetty systems in relation to bull redfish. I have a spot at the Sabine Jetties... Read more
Witnessing the blowup of a big sow speck can be the most impressive or underwhelming thing an angler can witness. Sometimes they strike with such vigor they force the lure into the air causing the heart to skip a few beats. Many times, the signature of a super-sized sow... Read more
Are crappie the smartest fish we deal with in Texas on a regular basis? In my opinion the answer is “no” but they are certainly near the top of the list. In fact, the researchers at Pure Fishing (producers of Abu Garcia, Berkley, etc.) list them as No. 2... Read more

Many of the largest specimens of speckled trout, largemouth bass and recently redfish caught on topwaters exhibit no blowup. They just suck the lure right under. I have caught really nice specks using plugs like the Skitter Walk and the only reason I knew a fish hit was due... Read more

Several years ago my cousin Frank Moore and I had a friendly debate over topwaters. He said the color of the lure’s back matter and I said it was irrelevant. That inspired me to dive and photographer lures from underwater. The result was the back of the lures showed... Read more
