Jigging implies fishing straight down from the tip of the rod. Is there enough backbone in a fly rod to set the hook at 30 feet plus feet?

My mother use to fry liver in corn meal.

Chicken dipped in a cornbread batter sounds great. Will have to try that.

I would say, tie some weighted clousers in the color of the jigs or black or some black weighted wooly worms.

Weighted line

Go east o n I 10.................. Cross the Trinity River. Start looking for roads south. Back in the 60's 70's my dad, my uncle and I fished this area.

Not too far from the river are some abandoned gravel pits filled with salt / brackish  water. we caught fish there.

On east on 10, turn south at Winnie. Lots of roads back to shore line or wild life refuges or parks.

On a google map take a stroll around the shore line of East Bay and Trinity Bay. You will find lots of access points. Bac
k when I fished this area the shore was wadable.

Have you wondered around the map on the home page of where our members have fished?

Somewhere in the vague memories of my  very early youth, I cna remember me and my mother sitting on Tin Can Reef in  Copano Bay while my dad was waded out fishing.

I was still in diapers.

Must abide by all club requirements, as well in this case the requirements of 7 lakes.
Both TFF and 7 lakes have their own liabilit waiver. (check here for us, downthere for them)

What Puck said.
Job well done.

I  see you are training him early. Most fisherman that young start out  cutting teeth on a rattle.....

Dave Kelly, I'm assuming that things such as tents & such should be added to the list.
Address this questionto the whimps who take such thing. Remember your traveling down  the beach for several days.

I think I want protection from the sabre tooth green-eyed Dog of Doom!  :o
No WIFI connection, no sabre tooth green-eyed Dog of Doom.

What kind of facilities are on the island beyond the great outdoors?
If you need to pee, waist deep in the surf, behind a vehicle, or if you are far enough away from any of the ladies, just be sure you face down wind. Behind a dune for other adventures and experiences.

If we're talking beasts like tarpon & jacks, am I going to need something more hefty than my Orvis 8-wt?
Bring 3 8-wts, one for the tarpon to break, one for the jacks to break and one to catch the skiip jacks, YES, recommended fo the novice, 16 to 18 weight.

On a serious note.  I always take a 'scorpion swatter' with me, Marcos can get you one or I know  REI carries them.  An a 'snake snore' is good to have if you're standing beyond the second cut and get a visit from a diamond back.
