Let us see how many others are willing to be the subject of the PINS stories.

Hey now, I resemble that remark... >:(

I didn't tell that story yet.    But it is a good one!

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

Got a 10wt with sinking line.  Learning how to cast - anyone interested in making a day trip to the beach south of Christmas Bay during the week.  I need some practice in the surf.

Because of my wife's work schedule, I might not be able to make this trip.
The house should still be available however if y'all are interested. I'll keep you posted.
I'm going to do everything in my power to stay on board, mind.

Oh, how I love the hammock story....!!!

Count me in for another grand experience / epic adventure / naughty word show. I'm down for whatever happens!!

I'm considering driving my 4Runner, and so I'll have 1 or 2 open seats for vaga bonds (depending on how much naughty word I feel I've gotta tote along). I'll keep you posted

I am planning on 3 passengers.  I was contacted last week, and am saving space for them.

Ready for an adventure?

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...

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.

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.

Gentlemen,

When the new sign-up sheet was implemented, the previous signers were erased. Unfortunately, I didn't copy those signers down as I did with the RR. That said, Please go back and sign-up again so that we have an accurate headcount. I apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
