Trip Initiator: Blake Colburn - Date Tentative
Trip Description: Night Fishing; Details to follow
Launch time is around 8:30 pm Friday. When you arrive, the best thing to do so that you don't block the boat ramp is to rig up across the street from the restaurant first. When you are ready to launch, drive across the street to unload your kayak then park. I will be talking a little about how to fish the underwater night lights at the next meeting. If you can't make it, please don't hesitate to call me. My contact number is 832-588-7091. Tackle I don't use are top water and popping corks. I know a few people that do use top water in the lights but from my experience I have found that it spooks the fish more times than not (same with the popping cork). Tackle I do use are soft plastics (I prefer glow in the dark), Miro-lures, Rattle-traps (I like to use these sometimes when fishing the overhead lights), some crank baits, silver spoons. You can rig up tandem or single. Predominately, I will be using soft plastics that glow in the dark. This time of year it doesn't really matter on choice of soft plastic baits. The fish will just about hit anything in the lights.

How to Get There:
The launch spot is at the boat launch right on the side of Waterman's Restaurant. There is a launch fee but usually the bait shop is closed. If the shop is open, the fee is $10 but if it's closed, it's free. The address to Waterman's Restaurant is:
14302 Stewart Rd., Galveston, TX 77554
If the fishing is good, we could potentially be out most of the night. However, you can get off of the water anytime you choose. The 10 trout limit is still good until the end of August. The five limit rule doesn't kick in until September 1st. Night fishing can be a great time to get your limit of trout and even red fish. If you have never tried night fishing out of a kayak before, you will be in for a delightful surprise.
