I have been fishing the coast off Corpus Christi and Port Aransas, Texas, but at no prevail. I've used live and dead shrimp, on the bottom and with a float. I do get an occasional hit, but nothing bites. Any advise on bait, use of bait, and best techniques? I am starting to get frustrated, friends always tell me that they max out on Red and Black Drum, Speckled Trout, and Flounder, among other species. I also tried plastics, but no luck on that either.
Would it be best advised to find a spot land stay put for an extended period of time, rather than moving to another place after only an hour or so?
Also, what baits, other than shrimp, should I try?
