So as I'm sure about 3 of you know, I moved to south TX 3 years ago. Worked hard last year figuring out the redfish and speckled trout. But I became enamored with Padre Island National Seashore. 65 miles off driveable beach! 4wd strongly recommended, so i bought a little jeep. First time down there since i got the jeep was Thursday. Get down there only to discover the beach is closed due to high water from incessant east winds. There was no beach, just gulf. I was devastated until i remembered mustang island has some roads that'll take you to the Laguna Madre side... on the west side protected by the wind. Still looking forward to my first real trip down PINS, but in the meantime, I ate good Friday. And as soon as I figure out posting pics here I'll share em.
