    If wading Rollover and surrounding areas near the Islands you better be ready for some mud doggin! It's thick with shell and best on incoming! Ive heard stories of guys having to get pulled out of the mud on the eastern shoreline lol...Sorry can't give anymore info! May be shot if I do so!!!

    Good stuff...I'll have to say march is my favorite time, as 2 of my biggest fish for galveston have come from either the South (27 3/4 8#) or north shoreline(28 1/2 8.5#), both on a redshad assassin in 2 seperate years. I am by no means proficient at East either, but behind Rollover Pass area is good...with out being specific, area to key on for me would be the mud/shell on North side of ICW...tide movement helps! Drains on a out going aren't too shabby either!

    If it smells like fish....you know I've been there!

    I'll offer a bit of commentary on the Rollover area. I have fished the Marsh Point flats inside Rollover twice in June. I launch my kayak from the parking area at Rollover, paddle across the ICW and fish the spoil islands that taper out at Rollover from Bird Island. The gaps that connect East Bay to the ICW have been productive for me early in the morning during the summer, particularly on an incoming or slack tide. I haven't caught any big, big specks but the last I went we caught a limit of solid 18" to 20" fish.

    There is alot of good looking shoreline in the Marsh Point area. I have had decent luck picking up reds and flounders in the marsh drains and on points in that area. I haven't seen big schools of reds back there but the last two times I've been back there, I've caught one or two. My guess is that the points and drains are more productive on an outgoing tide. I'll try it again.

    I've caught a good number of specks on live shrimp under a popper. I've done equally well on TTF Hackberry Hustlers rigged weedless to cut down on snagging on the shell.

    That's my $0.02.
