We'll fish from the beach in Matagorda. The surf is calm which usually brings the trout close to shore to feed. I've heard reports that people are catching their limit of five trout in an hour. This should be good.
No bites that first hour, but finally some action. Whatever is on the line is big and putting up a good fight. All we need is one good sized trout for a meal.
What is that? Is it what I think it is?
Yep, it's a shark, hooked in the side. Hey, be still shark. I want to take your picture.
Remove the hook carefully and let's put him back.
And take one last picture.
