Background
Welcome to "Fin Tastic Coastal Charters", and Texas Saltwater fishing with Capt. Stan Sloan, a U.S. Coast Guard licensed captain and fishing guide. Capt. Stan has been featured in Saltwater Sportsman Magazine, Texas Outdoors Journal, Gulf Coast Fisherman, and has appeared on fishing shows on The Outdoors Channel.

Techniques
I prefer catching fish on artificial bait, and wading for big Trout (winter and early spring) but under certain conditions live shrimp and drifting makes it easier.
