I am signed up and ready! I'm hoping this balmy weather continues... will be fun, and I'm sure there is a local venue for a shrimp po-boy and a cold beer after the adventure.  8)

Is that a strike indicator or a bobber?

The wind does not look very promising for Saturday. Windfinder http://www.windfinder.com/forecast/san_luis_island is pretty ugly. I am open to suggestions if it looks like this forecast is goning to hold. Shall we reschedule? Find a protected area? What would everyone like to do? I am out of town on business, but will be back Thursday. I will have some phone & email access, it just might take a little time to reply.

The good thing about Christmas Bay is that it affords a protected shoreline all the way down the bay on the eastside.  The marsh area to the north is ok in the wind too. But when it goes over 25mph there is nothing like a good book and a cold beer in the easy chair back home! 8)

Just spoke with Quigs. He is correct the smoke will be present this weekend.  The thought here is maybe you guys know of a different more protected area to fish in the Galveston area.  I suggested Armond Bayou and he came up with Bolivar cut behind the peninsula.   Armond might get blown out and be dry after the smoke starts it thing.  What do you think...got any ideas. Front comes in on Friday night and doesn't clear until sunday evening.  Monday will be fantastic!

We can either try someplace else, or reschedule for May 5th. What do y'all want to do?

Kayak fishing on Cinco de Mayo! Muy Bueno! Muco tecate gusto...

Trying to fish into a 25 knot headwind  - Sea realmente malo!

Just my $.02... Live to fish another day, and like Golden suggests - a comfy chair and a good book.

Here is the email I just sent out:

Hey y'all,

The weather idiots are calling for winds around 20+ with gusts to near 30 mph from the North. It seems that we would all have a much better time if we shoot for another weekend. As the Sunfish Spectacular will be on the 28th, I'm going to go with Saturday, May 5th. This seems to be the best solution right now.

If some of you want to try and find a place this Saturday, let me know. I'm still game to fish, but I don't want to hold the outing and have it go bad for everyone.

Thanks!

I may be able to fish this new date!

To fish, or not to fish?  What a stupid question!

Wouldn't you know it.  Sandy and I are going to finally get the 5th wheel out for a couple of nights and guess what? 

It's when you all are going to Christmas Bay - one of my favorite spots!

Have fun everyone!
