Capt. Brian Barrera Details a Dynamic Gulf Coast Fishery
Shimano School returns on Tuesday, November 9, with another informative and entertaining event. JP DeRose hosts these live-streaming video seminars, featuring compelling topics and special guests from across the spectrum of the fishing world. Shimano School meets every two weeks and streams live on the Shimano Facebook Page and the Shimano North America’s YouTube Channel.
Capt. Brian Barrera headlines this edition of Shimano School to describe inshore fishing along the Texas Gulf Coast. Barrera operates the South Texas Saltwater Experience guide service, based on South Padre Island, and focuses his angling efforts on the Lower Laguna Madre. This pristine estuary is one of only four hypersaline ecosystems in the world. The semi-arid climate of south Texas, combined with only two freshwater inlets, maintains and enhances the bay’s salinity and produces a tremendous diversity of game species from redfish, tarpon, and black drum, to giant seatrout and snook. Whether it’s stalking the clear shallow grass flats for tailing redfish and seatrout, or experiencing his specialty of putting clients on big snook and tarpon, Barrera provides a Texas adventure like none other!
In this edition of Shimano School, Capt. Barrera will describe the opportunities and rewards of wading the Gulf Coast flats for supersized seatrout. As he opens his inshore playbook, Barrera will provide all of the presentation and tackle details that anglers need to succeed while stalking Texas gamefish on foot. Barrera will also detail how he uses the CURRENT SNIPER family of saltwater hard baits for targeting trophies on the south Texas flats. This is a Shimano School that every saltwater angler will appreciate.
We invite viewers to post questions to the Facebook and YouTube live streams, while Barrera and DeRose provide the answers needed to help viewers find success on their next Gulf Coast inshore adventure. Shimano School is in session starting at 8 PM EST on Tuesday, November 9.
