The Writing Team is running very late again tonight.In The Texas Kayak Fisherman forum was an entry about a beach area that the Exploring Team had tried to get to in the past. The entry showed a map of the area and the “road” to use to get to it. So about 1400 the Team took off to find the “road” and beach. It looked like it could be an excellent wade fishing area.
The ferry crossing went well and the Team was soon on the way down the island to the “road” entry. When we found the entry an idiot had left his car parked blocking the “road” into the area. The Truck of course just went into the grass and around the idiot’s vehicle. This “road” turned out to be a very unfinished route through the marsh land. Please have a very high clearance vehicle like the Truck to even attempt the passage.At a less rough spot the Teams stopped to get a picture of the “road’.
After a few minutes of bouncing around like a super ball on a trampoline we arrived at the beach. The road ran off into the water just before it got to the beach. So the Truck backed up to a double track through the grass and away we went. Man this is a nice beach area with a lot of area that should be interesting wade fishing.
This is on the bay side of Mustang Island near the south end of Mustang Island State Park. There were all sorts of fishy activities going on out in the water. Since the correct equipment for the area was not with the Teams, we decided to take a walk and see what there is to see. A bottle of water was grabbed and away the Foot Exploring Team went. We found several great places to enter the water for shallow water fishing. This should be a great place to return to in the future.On the way back to the Truck was a nice surprise. Someone had dropped their tackle box like the one the OFM carries onto the piers. A truck tire had smashed the tackle box but the lures inside were fine.
Now the Fishing Team has some new lures to try out. Maybe they will change our luck for the better. Finding a way into a few square miles of new fishing territory is bound to help with the goal of trying to have tooooo much fun. TheOFM.
