The Texas Gulf coast is famous for its fresh seafood, clean water, fun-filled resorts, desolate beaches—and its world-class fishing. Between Sabine Pass near the Louisiana border and Boca Chica at the mouth of the Rio Grande, more than two dozen major species of fish can be found in coastal rivers, bays and bayous, and surf, as well as offshore. Fishing the Texas Gulf Coast provides all the information needed to fish this 350-mile stretch with success, whether angling inshore for speckled trout, redfish and flounder, or seeking kingfish, cobia and bluewater big game offshore. Local fishing captain Mike Holmes describes more than 100 of the best places to cast a line, from the species found at each location to specific information on access, regulations and record. In addition to detailed maps and photos, he explains how hurricanes have shaped the topography of some prime angling areas, and shares proven tips on lures, flies, bait, tackle and techniques. 131 pages.
