Originally Published on Mar 3, 2015 Fishing from a kayak and in the surf in January in Galveston. Caught lots of Sheephead in the day and trout at night (bad footage). Did very well on bull Reds in the surf. Caught my two biggest bull Reds at 45 and 48 inches (3 over 40 inches in one day). Triple header of big Reds at minute 4.00 (45 in. then 48 inches.).
