Temps are not bad but 60% rain is annoying.

I was just looking at the forecast. Keep an eye this thread. If things go seriously downhill again weatherwise, we may just write this one off to the fishing gods and hope that the PPI on the 1st comes off without a hitch.

Looking at the Bridge City forecast, it looks like a steady 10 MPH north or northeast wind all week. I wonder if we will have any water in the bay to fish?

Do we know of anybody travelling that way that can give us an update?

Or does somebody know a guide?

Down to 20% chance of rain, wind speed dropped, and now going to get into the 60's.  This is the forecast as of 2014-02-05-0730

Yes we are. John & I are meeting at Puck's at 6 and going to Denny's. Then on to the ramp to meet at 9.

Saturday, three intrepid anglers, all members of the Katy Navy, set forth towards the Louisiana border in pursuit of redfish, trout & flounder glory. After a hearty breakfast at the Garth Rd Denny's and a pit stop/editorial statement at the Port Arthur Wal-Mart, we launched in Bridge City. The wind was mild and temps were warming. We hoped to find our quarry beneath the waves of Sabine Lake.  We paddled out towards some birds working the channel, but found no takers. We worked, flats, mud and channel drop-offs to no avail. We then worked our way back into the marsh but did not see a single bait fish, let alone game fish.  After 5+ miles of paddling, we decided to call it a day, only to find that the tire on Puck's kayak trailer had decided to go flat. Of course Puck had a spare for his trailer....120 miles west of us in his garage...(!) John minded the kayaks while Don & I set off to the Bridge City Wally World for some Slime to fix the tire. We then sought out air, ending up at the same place Golden & I got air for his kayak trailer's flat last year (noticing a pattern here?). We then went back to retrieve John and the kayaks. While we were gone, John met a local gentleman, Wesley (I believe), who gave us some great tips and suggestions for the next time we hit the marshes there.  We set out for our west Houston Shangri-La.  After several stops to find air for our leaky tire involving Puck doing battle with a coin-op compressor, we made it home, fishless, but never the less, smiling after a fun day of adventure with great friends.
