Took a trip to Port Aransas today because I heard that the Red Tide was absent at the big jetties.  Sure enough when the wife and I arrived the beach was clear of dead fish and no Red Tide!  The wife surfed while I fished the base of the pier.  I waded the shore break and tossed a 2″ gulp shrimp at the base of the pier pilings.  There were big holes washed out around each piling.  I caught 2 whiting, 3 rat reds, and one small spec.  I hooked a flounder that looked like a keeper but lost it before I could walk it up to the beach.  A couple of guys who walked off the jetty reported that everyone was catching reds, slot and oversized, about halfway out on the surf side.
