Redfish at Packery ChannelCompleted in 2006 the jetty has not only provided boat access to the Gulf of Mexico but outstanding jetty fishing. Summer months offer some offshore game fish such as tarpon, kingfish, shark, Spanish mackerel, blue fish and other species. Year round fishing is good for trout, redfish, shark and flounder. Water exchange between the Gulf of Mexico and the Laguna Madre carries significant bait fish. Live bait can be readily caught with a cast net in warm water months. Using artificial baits such as gold and silver spoons and soft plastics are also extremely productive.
