After being away for 20 years, I'm back to fishing the gulf coast. I started last summer with some of the usual spots, SLP, 8mile, and corps of engineers. Not a lot of luck. I'd like to do better this year or the wife might start complaining a bit. I usually throw chartreuse gulp, it's what I had the best luck with. I'm wading and surf fishing no boat, but looking at a yak.
