No. I don't complain. I am happy to walk down to the rock to release fish though I had hard time with normal shoes. :) It is my fault. 

Canal fishermen are more intense than Texas jetty fishermen.  Canal fishermen treat members within their group very nicely, but the attitude change to outsiders. :) Texas jetty fishermen treat everyone very nicely whether they are within their group or not. 

 

 

The Canal has gone to hell. It’s a prime example of everything wrong in this world. I helped a father catch his first Scup this weekend after helping his two daughters catch crabs with my daughter on some squid. Brought me more joy than landing any 40 pound Striper. People have forgotten the joy of helping others.

A grown man and experienced fisherman should not expect a stranger to climb on “slippery rocks” to land his fish - canal, jetty, beach, etc.

Especially with a pandemic going on.

Texas jetty fisherman also don't have thousands of guys up and down the coast traveling to fish a single shoreline and their spots and bites haven't been burned over and over again.

Yes. Competition makes them tougher.

I would tend to agree. It absolutely impacts the locals opinions and attitudes.

Absolutely.  You have two choices to fish the Canal. To get tougher or to find your own spot even you have less chance to hook up fish.  Luckily I have many sources to know when and where bites are going on. But I avoid crowded spot as possible. 

 

Here is a nice striper using 9'6" Black Hole Striper rod. Can you identify the rocks ? :)

And this spot where my friend got 52" striper using his custom Lamiglass Crazy Alberto rod. He fished alone on his own spot.

I think I saw her mainland side, mid canal ******** afternoon. Not too far from your other picture, but West of there. 

 

*** No fish was present when I saw her.

Are those water shoes, slippers?

 

Spikes, wear sone spikes, or at the very least a pair of good hiking shoes with an agressive tread and positive ankle support.

I am looking for light shoes with spikes to fish rocks.

…….identify the place you plan to pull a fish of size into a locations so that you may be able to get down from the road to release any fish......

Lots of people (including me) will get pretty bitched up if someone jumps in uninvited to "help" land their fish.

 

I find that having someone slap at my line usually ends badly.  I will help if asked but unless you know what you are dealing with (line, leader and rig) it is risky.  Trying to leader a 40lb bass if the angler is using 20lb leader will end poorly

I do not ask any help while fishing. 

I will stop fishing when I realize I can not fish anymore.

As long as I can fish, I will continue what I have been doing. 

I will post reports as usual for silent supporters. 

If you don't like my reports, don't participate in my post. 

As all overseas trips were cancelled, I will concentrate in fishing locally.

As I said, Cape Canal fishing is magical and I will continue to fish there.
