On a side note Tom, last year an 8 ft Tiger came into that particular bay. The only reason we know this is because it had a tag on her and you could track its movements online. Needless to say i quickly turned into a drift fisherman for a few months until she decided to leave. I generally fish East Matagorda Bay, and there is no direct cut to the gulf so sharks are few and far between. They tend to swarm in areas where they can get back out into the gulf in a hurry if they feel the need.
