: Wind, wind, wind. After stopping at HEB (local grocery store} and buying some religious candles with pictures of a calm day on it, we lit them and hoped the 20 mph wind would go away. Needless to say it did not work. It was somewhat decent (10mph) at daybreak but jumped up to 20mph at 10am and stayed that way all day. This made it very challenging to fish with a fly rod. We paddled all day all over LHL and B&R with a lot of it into that stiff wind. Also the predicted strong out-going tide never materialized. If you thought last weekend had low water, this trip was even lower. As I have mentioned before "No water, no fish." We finally found some decent water with depth and moving current. The venerable red/white Clouser came through again.

Great report even if the fishing was slow! Nice picture though. Keep'm coming.

Btw, I use to work with a lot of the car dealers in Corpus, I think there was even one in Aransas Pass I worked with once or twice (can't recall the name). The guys I worked with in Corpus for ex. were like Padre Ford/Maz, Creveling Dodge, Vista Group, Love C-P, Al Willeford Chev, Allen Samuels and a few others. I didn't have a chance to visit them in person but I did work with most of them("via" phone/fax,etc) about 3 times per year for about 5 years.
Sorry about the tangent, lol. Seeing "Port Aranasas" up there brought back the memories.
