We wrap things up by hitting the salt flats with Captain Len Girard who joins us live from the Texas coast. Redfish are on fire right now! Captain Len talks about this late arriving winter and how it’s affecting/altering normal patterns. Trout and black drum are also in the bays in good numbers. Captain Len tells us where to find ’em and what he’s catching ’em on.
