He caught them in a net and they were hung in the mesh. They would have died. The bay's waters are very warm this year and if we continue to warm maybe we will be fishing for these in the future.

Ah I see with the net... Still pretty sweet to know that they are around. I went fly fishing for bonefish in mexico just north east of cancun. They put up a great lb for lb fight!

just an FYI- They've been catching them about that size in the back of San Diego bay in SoCal for a couple years now.
Sure is cool to see them coming back coast to coast!

I'm waiting to see who catches a striper in Galveston bay this year, seems to happen every year.

I've heard of them being caught in the S. Padre-Brownsville area before, and not surprised they are moving North! That's really cool!

If it were me I would keep one of those guys and make a small "print" of it for the wall! Beautiful fish!

The bones in San Diego are thought to have been brought there by ships pumping the larvae out of the bilges and they stay in the back of the bay near the power plant.

I have wanted to go back there and fish for those fish. Never had the time.

Brandon, who caught them? That's pretty cool. I might have to go search for them on the beachside of Traylor. :D
