Just be mindful of the winds. Weather permitting your 16 footer should be fine in the bay down there. The bay can get pretty choppy as it is oriented north to south and the south winds can stir up some decent waves.

finally got back on here after an eon it seems, I bailed on Va and move here back in the springtime April 2015 .. love the RGV but dang the best fishing seems 5 to 8 hours away ...

unless of course you like specs n reds ... 30 years plus of those in Va ... so they are not a target fish for me down here much ...

LOOKING FOR A SKINNY WATER BOAT TO BUY DOWN HERE IF YOU KNOW ANYONE SELLING IN THE 8k RANGE

Hey racn35 if you are on Padre you could be catching all kinds of fish even during the winter. Sheephead are there in numbers. There are gray/mangrove snapper in small numbers throughout the year with more in the summer and pompano come in when the weather warms up as well. Kingfish and Spanish macks off the jetties at Port Aransas and Port Isabelle from later spring through summer. Spend time around the jetties and docks.

Take that 24" Wahoo out and chase the bait pods during the summer. Spanish mack's will wear you out and Pompano in the 3rd bar to the 2nd are a blast on light tackle.

PM me and I'll give you spec's on places around you.
