This was an adventure. 

We had 2 early launches, and I haven't talked to them yet to see how they did.

I got lost trying to find the launch site.  Google maps had it wrong.  I now have it as POI in 2 GPSs.  I was not the only one to be late thanks to our reliance on modern electronics.

John and Joe were on the water by the time I got my act together.

Since I brought the HAI I was able to tow Tom and Will to the marsh.  During the tow, I was able to convince Will to use the HAI for a while.  I wish I would have taken a video of that.  He was all over the place, and fast.

The water quality at the marsh was not a good as we needed it to be for flies. The wind picked up, and about noon we tried to make it back.  I attempted to tow Tom and Will back, not very successfully :(

By 1300 I called John to let him know I was off the water and headed home.

If you have stories to add to this, please do.

I only took a few pictures, and one decent video.  I'll work on those as part of this post later.

Tides for South Padre Island

Which is pretty close to where we will be.

It looks like the low tides, and the best time to travel down the beach, will be close to high noon.

I'm pumped for this skirmish. Is everyone just making a day-trip outta' this experience?

Day trip it is.  Early morning across on the ferry, but avoid it later in the day.

Get your kitchen passes early!

The fish are waiting for us at Bolivar Marsh this weekend.

I plan to be there early enough to set up a coffee pot.

Anybody willing to bring kolaches?

Sabine River Authority of Louisiana   site has the generation schedule. 

We will need to check this days ahead of the trip.  I don't expect them to generate, but we don't need a supprise.

This weekend!!

If you haven't fished this river yet, talk to those that have.

It is well worth the short road trip.

At least you got out on the water. That's more than I can say. When are you going to post a snap shot of Raymonds catch and, the pattern he caught it on?

I was well prepared, by bringing fresh batteries for both the GPS and the waterproof camera.  The GPS worked fine the entire time we were on the water.  The camera, unfortunately, was still sitting by the PC, where I had downloaded the D7Ls pictures from last weekend.   :-[

Raymond and I were on the water by 0830, only to find that the water was missing a key component, SALT.

Fished the dingy fresh water for a few hours with Raymond cathing a hardhead and a croker on the fly.  No shrimp in the area.  No crabs, and only a few gamefish, acording to the locals that were also fishing.

Off the water by 1500.
