Our friend Daniel went down to PINS on October 27th and checked the fishing for us .
The annual Padre Island National Seashore fishing trip was sparsely attended, but very successful.
Nobody got skunked.
Driving conditions were ideal.
Very few people driving on the beach.
But if you want to know more…
We have been invited to participate in the Magoo Tournament with the Laguna Madre Fly Fishing Association on the 13th of October.
Details to follow: Laguna Madre Fly Fishing Association
Due to the high probability of major rain and wind, we need to postpone this trip to the following weekend. I’ll update the trip details to reflect the change.
We have already had one trip a few years back that we didn’t postpone, and paid the price. See the video below:
The way we used to track participants, with a sign-in sheet at club meetings, didn’t allow the participants to be notified of any changes to the event, (weather, high water, muddy water, bad tides, etc.) or coordinate what to bring (rain gear, food, camping supplies, etc.)
In preparation for the 2018 PINS trip, I am looking at having a fly tying session in Katy.

Start Time: Saturday – 5:00 am – Meet up at the Skimmer Dock, Fulton, TX

Description: Saturday morning, we will be ferried to St. Joe’s Island aboard the M/V Skimmer for a day of skinny water kayak & wade fishing in the Fence Lake area. The
Skimmer can carry 12 fishermen and their kayaks. About 3:00 pm, the Skimmer
will return to pick us up at the mouth of Fence Lake and take us back to the dock.
Important Note: Be sure and remove all items in and on your kayak prior to
load out on the Skimmer and carry them on separately. It will make it easier to
load and stack the kayaks on the mother ship.
