I fished with live shrimp and cut-bait in 35 feet out of New Pass Tuesday with Mike Sokol, wife Ann, and the Sokol children, Michelle, Michael, Phillip and Brian. We caught Spanish mackerel, mangrove snapper, triggerfish, grunts, and released lots of blue runners. The kids had three big fish run away, and those were likely bigger mackerel or small sharks. It has been pretty slow here lately, with a lot of rain, and with a lot of folks that might have changed family travel plans, given the price of gas. Next week is looking a bit busier, so I am hoping for some good weather and good action.
