A recent 12-hour fishing trip out of Port Aransas brought back over 80 red snapper.
The trip was out of Deep Sea Headquarters on Sunday, March 13, according to assistant manager Nina Sifuentes.
The trip saw all the anglers catch their limits of red snapper, she said.
More people came out to fish as the cold weather lightened up over the weekend, according to Sifuentes.
Other fish caught during trips out of the fishing charter last week included whiting and vermilion snapper.
Erin Felix of Dolphin Dock said fishermen brought back vermilion snapper, redfish, black drum, a few red snapper and a couple of spinner shark.
A 38-inch black drum, blacktip shark, catfish, whiting and pufferfish were caught from Horace Caldwell Pier, according to Blake Wallingsford, who manages the Keepers shop on the pier.
Eddie Sheppard of Fisherman’s Wharf said vermilion snapper was among species anglers brought in.
Redfish have been biting on shrimp in Aransas Bay near the Klondike Islands, according to Capt. Doug Stanford in a report for the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department.
Over at the jetties, fishermen hauled in trout, sheepshead and redfish, he said.
