This is a really quick update and fishing report:
We went fishing again today at Rollover Pass. We had much better luck, I caught a ten pound drum and Jerry caught a very nice 15 inch flounder. We gave the drum away and took the flounder home for dinner. A nice man we met fishing offered to filet it for us, he did a wonderful job and now we both know how to fillet flounder for the next one. He was a great teacher. How wonderful to meet new friends that are that giving. Jerry also caught a whiting and tossed it back in, it was a bit too small. It is really nice to start CATCHING fish. :-) We have fished all over the place and this place seems to be the best place we have found in the area.
I read they are trying to fill Rollover Pass in and build a pier instead. They have a petition to sign to stop this from happening. I signed the petition right away in hopes it will help to keep Rollover Pass open. Here is a link to the petition, please read and sign it if you are familiar with the pass and would love to return and fish here, if you have never visited and would love to visit and fish....OR....if you would like to help keep it open for friends like us, please click on the link and sign it. Jerry and I will be most grateful, we love this area and hope to return again next year.

Check back later for more from Texas. We hope everyone has a wonderful Easter.
