Here is Bill's email with everything you need to know about the new location:

I spoke to Don (the original trip lead). He told me because of all the rain and the current water level of Chocolate Bayou the fishing would be very bad.  The Chocolate Bayou the fishing trip is canceled.


Hoping the weather cooperates, I plan to go the Bolivar three mile turn around.  This should give us a great chance to catch reds and trout.  The trip will be a kayak or wade fishing trip from the beach.  We will meet on the beach (see directions below). If you will be bringing a boat, there is boat launch near the North Jetty Bait Camp.  Turn right on 16th street.  The ramp is at the end of the road.  Please let me know if you plan to do this.  There is not much room to park but you can park at the North Jetty Bait Camp (100 Yards away).   You can buy bait if you want at the following locations: North Jetty Bait Camp, 802 17th St. Port Bolivar, TX 77650 or Joe's Bait & Crabs, 724 Nelson Avenue, Port Bolivar, TX 77650.  Six miles from the ferry there is Bolivar Yacht Bait Camp Boyt Rd Port Bolivar, TX 77650 (Left on Boyt take last left to bait)             


Directions to the beach:,+TX/29.3824704,-94.7233663/@29.5625773,-95.1687556,10z/am=t/data=!4m9!4m8!1m5!1m1!1s0x8640b8b4488d8501:0xca0d02def365053b!2m2!1d-95.3698028!2d29.7604267!1m0!5i1  Follow the directions above then turn right on Rettilon Rd and drive to the beach. Turn right on the beach and go to the end of the beach (1/4 to 1/2mile).  Park by the barrier.  I have been able to drive my Prius on the hard packed beach.  We will launch kayaks from there.     


Please let me know what you intend to do.  If the weather does not cooperate, I will cancel this trip Friday evening.  Watch for the email.
