I fished Laguna Madre and the majority of reds were sub 40". I caught less specs than reds but I was targeting reds. The specs I did catch in Texas were bigger than the ones I have caught in the bay w/ the exception of a few. The best spec fishing I have ever had was about five years ago in the southern portion of the bay. Myself and two other guys had a 90 spec day with most fish between "20-25". I have not seen a day like that since. A couple cold winters really put a dent in their population. They were rebounding the summer before last but then last winter's cold snap knocked them back down again.
FYI, a well known guide on the bay caught a 49" drum around Tangier Sound Area less than two weeks ago. It was a monster. Caught it hanging out with a bunch of stripers. I caught a couple puppy drum in 46 degree water a couple falls ago.
