Im headed to south padre on a short trip from Wed-Fri, Im looking for a few spots to throw some flies that would be good this time of year. I dont need your secret spot just a spot that should have something to cast at lol. Hopefully its not to crowded on the bayside. I snapped my 8wt flyrod screwing around in the yard today and didnt have time to send it in to TFO so I picked a 9wt redington vapen to test out. I hope I do better on the water than I do yard fishin.
Please tell me how you do , I'm heading out there on June 12 for a week , My 12 year old nephew is in a contest against his older cousins on who can catch the most fish that week . They are going on a charter but he is nervous on boats so wants to wade fish in the Bay and I want to help him win.
I havent caught anything in the bay yet or seen anything except a ton of mullet, I caught a few skipjack in the surf by beach access 3. Im using a flyrod so you might have better luck in the bay with soft plastics or live bait
Have you checked out the area to the right of the convention center , I have often seen people wade fishing out there and they usually have a few trout . There is a tackle shop on Port Isabel , sorry cant remember the name but they are usually willing to give you advice and tips .
was there all last week ,fish were biting good up the bay aways we used cork rigs with live shrimp and gulp both were effective good luck with the flies and the wind, you can probably get something to bite!
