Hit the texas city flats early with artificials (gold spoons and soft plastics) and live croakers. We caught a few undersized trout but otherwise no luck. The evening before some friends were at the North jetty and limited out on trout with live shrimp and a note to other waders: about 5 - 7 BLACK TIP SHARKS (4-6 ') AND ONE 7' HAMMERHEAD! This afternoon another wading buddy reported having about 5 nice sized trout on a stringer when all of a sudden he felt a huge jolt and in his words "the largest shark I've ever seen came out of the water and took all 5 trout in one bite...". Many people who've fished the Galveston complex will agree that in years past sharks were a fairly uncommon sight (maybe one or two if at all) on the average trip and usually sand sharks in the 2-3' range. Yet in the last month I know of several people who've caught and seen many large sharks. A word to the wise to the waders in particular- keep your stringers loosely attached and avoid being alone in deep water too far from shore.
