Let me know if we need some more coordination?

Oi, Caleb H. will be joining the excursion. He & I are meeting at the put-in at 6 & want to be on the water before sunrise. I'm sure we'll see you guys out there! And we'll definitely grab a bite to eat afterwards. I just wanted to let you know, so you won't be waiting for us

We need to make sure we stay away from near the water line because the sargassum was so bad.  It gets covered with sand then starts to deteriorate making mucky areas that are soft.  You can be driving down the beach, hit one of these pockets, and be up to your frame before you know it.  Great way to spend a few hours digging out before the tide comes in.  If you do get stuck near the water line and the tide comes in, the only way to get out is by getting a tow service to come out - big $$$ - scroll down to the pic of the stuck vehicles in the surf - http://discussions.texasbowhunter.com/forums/showthread.php?t=150384

There's also some good info on what to bring on this forum.

I will tentatively lead this one. We need to see about coordinating with the Louisiana marsh trip. The outings will be the 15th & 22nd of November. Just depends on stocking, schedules, etc.

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.

Only six folks were able to make the trip this year. But it was a great group, with two father and sons, Andy and Johnathon Leach, Tom and Will Anderson, Bob Brill and Myself.  We meet-up at Spencer’s Canoe Rental and Kevin gave each of us a box of flies selected for the river.  Kevin had also arranged our shuttle up to San Marcos River Retreat where we started our float.  The morning was filled with lots of sunfish and a few Rio Grande Perch including a monster caught by Tom.  I managed to hook and boat a 2’ long gar and many sunfish.  We saw a number of interesting sites along the including a flock of wild turkeys and the wildlife at Don's fish camp.  Shortly after noon we pulled the boats on to a nice gravel beach for lunch.  Everyone brought some food for lunch and Kevin added to that with a nice spread of deli meats and cheese, breads, chips and brownies.  I felt the afternoon fishing was a little slower, but the other folks seemed to be doing well, as I saw a number of hook-ups.  A short distance from the takeout point, I managed to hook and boat  a very nice Large Mouth Bass.  I think everyone was happy with their day on the water.  Tom and Will were both new to fly fishing and did very for their first time on moving water.

At the take out spot Kevin passed out a goodie pack to each of the participants, made up of beer glasses a couple of beers (soft drinks for the young men), Peanuts. Bottle opener, eye-glass case, sun glass strap and a custom Hill County Anglers Cap with Texas Fly Fishers, San Marcos River, 2014 monogramed on the back.  The adults enjoyed a cold beer and conversation before hitting the road for home.  Kevin Hutchison deserves a special thanks for his generous support of the Texas Fly Fishers, and making this trip outstanding.

I'm all in on this one.  I'll have my Jeep and JumpingJack trailer that sleeps 4.  Garland and I are the only ones so far so we can sleep two more.  I'll have my swamp cooler working by then so we should have some AC to sleep by.

Garland and I are planning to go down early Fri. morning and cross over to Yarborough Pass (if the sand isn't too deep).  We'll fish the flats north of the pass both Fri. evening and Sat. morning - then hook up with the rest of the club and fish the beach.  I'll can bring three kayaks.  Garland is bringing his Jeep, too, so we'll have room for two more folks.  If anyone is interested in joining us, please let me know.

Puck - I'll have a chain, 6 ton hand wench, high-lift jack with tire attached, shovel, first aid kit, CB radio, lot's of water, etc...

Guys - looks like I  must back out of the Bolivar marsh trip - regrets. Seems I have a grandchild introducing himself to the world this week.

Have fun without me!
