PORT ARANSAS: Capt. Dean Monroe reports “awesome” fishing. “I have been catching limits of trout pretty much every day, weather permitting. I have been using more and more piggie perch than i am croakers since the pigs are getting bigger. I have hit a good amount of red fish throwing double piggy perch in the flats after catching trout. A lot of the fishing success depends on the wind allowing me to get to where the fish are.”
