Padre Island National Seashore 2019-Nov 8-10. Driving PINS on Sat, Nov 9th spotting jacks in the surf and casting to them. Stay in a hotel the night before. You take care of your own lodging.
From Andrew Jones
The wind stayed at about 10 – 15 MPH – Maybe a bit more than that! The morning winds were lower and increased as the day progressed. On Saturday, the wind may have had gusts up to 20 MPH as we watched a thunderstorm just offshore pass by. I am not sure what the air temperature was, but it wasn’t too hot with the nice Gulf breeze. As far as rain, we didn’t get any at the jetties except for about 5 minutes of light rain about 6:30 AM Sunday morning.Continue reading

Report Out: Twelve of us drove from Houston to Pass Christian, Mississippi to join DMJ Charters on their ship “Backdraft”. The weather cooperated for us…windy the first day, then good after that. We had a combination of conventional and fly fisherman, both from boats and wading. We landed reds, specs, and jacks. The food and accommodations were outstanding. Pics tell only part of the story:

Event: East Matagorda Bay – 3 Mile Lake area
TRIP CANCELLED DUE TO WEATHER
Trip Description: Kayak fishing for redfish, speckled trout, and sheephead. If you do not have a kayak, wading in the lakes can be very productive at times. 4X4’s are usually a must for beach driving and crossing into the cut. Once you get off the beach past the dunes, driving is usually okay. A permit is required for beach driving and you can get one at Stanley’s for about 10 or 12 bucks.
If you don’t have a 4×4 truck, but would like to attend with either a kayak or wade fishing, contact John Eldred prior to the trip, and we may be able to work out a solution.
When: June 15, 2019
