I am about to leave Texas.

I fished  at  a jetty this morning and witnessed memorable hot bites on spoon and bucktail.

I went to the jetty early in the morning, but it started  raining with thunder. So I waited one hour and went to the end of jetty.

Some were fighting fish.  They said it has been hot bites.  Even I arrived at the jetty when hot bites slowed down, I fought 8 drum and landed 4. 

They landed big red drum, cobia, king mackerel and jack.

some pictures of today's hot bites.

I finally used Al Gag jig and got drum.  I know Al Gag jigs work for drum, but I was afraid to use them because of sticky rocky bottom.

Hot bites continue...
I used Al Gag jigs exclusively this morning.
On the first cast, I had a big bull drum on 3 oz Al Gag jig, but I lost the fish due to failure of leader line. I didn't change the leader line after I used it yesterday. My laziness cost big fish and a jig. 1f642.png:)
After catching 4 nice drum, i quit fishing.

Exactly.  But I like the posts about the rods.  He keeps his potential customers informed on development and the reasons why.  Takes input directly from people on this site and uses it.  What other rod manufacturer is on this site and is as involved as kilsong?  Hell I don't even have a complete rod yet just a couple blanks to build and try.   

 

And nice fish!!!! Bet it was a blast!!!!

My whole purpose of fishing trips is to test rods.

I believe many members want to know what is the limit of rods, what action of rods have, ect as our Black Hole USA rods are pretty new and they can't check out rods as not many dealers are in each state yet. 

If any member doesn't want to see my post about Black Hole rods, just ignore my post as my post is for members who want to know about Black Hole rods.

Nice Kil, theses fish must be close to those rocks. Looks like lots of fun and it’s a very long jetty. Thanks for sharing.

In fact, you cast far and work the bottom.  You lose lots of spoon or jigs when jigging close to rocky bottom.  It is very long jetty. I do exercise by walking the jetty in the morning and afternoon whether I catch fish or nor.

I consider 40-60yards is close to those rocks. What do you consider casting far or where do you believe these fish are? From your picture with the amount of line left on your spool, I would guess you are not casting 100 plus yards out.

I don't know exact distance I cast.  With wind behind, I cast 100 yards and normally I cast 60 - 80 yards with wind against.  I sometimes get bite on the way down after casting. That means they are pretty far.  Some guys cast live bait, but they usually catch small drum.
