I’m going fishing this weekend or next, and I’m not sure what to target. I’m set up for fly tackle or spinning tackle, and I have a kayak available which is rigged for fishing. I live in central Texas, and lake Belton and the Stillhouse hollow reservoir are nearby. I’ll probably bring two or three rods. I’m not sure I want to hassle with live bait, although I may if the conditions look good. Water should be clear in the upper 50s or low 60s.
You have a kayak, a rod & reel, a bait well, and a cooler. You’ve just been given a gift card to your local sporting good store for $70. What kind of tackle would you buy? (Lures, Leaders, Hooks, etc.)
The target would be Red Fish and Trout in Galveston, TX.
