Comfort Castle Location: Rockport, Texas
Adventure Location: Rockport, Texas
Adventures were in short supply today. A trip to the grocery store seemed to be the major excitement for most of the day.
Cavasso Creek is the name of an alternate launching spot to get to St. Charles Bay in this area. It is also a location notorious for have alligators waiting to visit with you. Searching the internet finally paid off and the location of Cavasso Creek was determined. It is north of me a few miles.
On the way to CC a stop was made at Goose Island State Park to check it out again. Mistake. They are booked solid for the weekend and it seemed that there were more folks there than fire ants. Mosquitoes were also getting a nice feeding if you went near the grass or trees. It did not take me long to look at this hot horseshoe.
Back on the highway it was only a short distance to CC. Where you pull off the highway next to the bridge is very rough and a regular car might have a lot of trouble. Even the Truck with high clearance came close to bottoming out in one spot. The “ramp” is not really a ramp, but is a muddy slope into the marsh water. This is definitely marsh country like Puddle Boat was purchased to use in.
As far as you can see it is marsh waiting to be explored. The two vehicles parked at the ramp were obviously used to transport shallow draft boats. The boats were nowhere to be seen as you can see in this picture.
That area may get to be visited with PB some day in the future.
In preparation for going to the Aransas Pass jetty again some wire leaders were purchased. They are longer than my preference. This afternoon they were each made into two leaders. Of course that means that they needed a good tryout. The back side of the Beach Park was the chosen location. The good news is that the leader worked just fine with my lures. The bad news is that the speckled trout that was caught was (you guessed it) a half inch too short to be legal to harvest. Back it went into the water to grow up.
As the sun was going down the temperature got down to 71 as the Truck was started to leave the area. The Whataburger is close so it was there that supper was eaten. It was a great day of eating with fish fillets steamed at home for lunch and a chicken sandwich for supper. That is a great way to finish a day of trying to have tooooo much fun. TheOFM.
