Hello, TFF. I'm new, just got my profile approved last night. Me and my wife have our first wedding anniversary coming up in July. We both love fishing and the beach, so we are wanting to run down to matagorda for a couple of nights to do some surf fishing. Problem is, being young newly weds (I'm 21 and she's 19) we are on an extremely tight budget. Any advice on having a great vacay in Matagorda? I've been looking into the Fisherman's Motel and they have rooms as low as $75 a night. Another issue is that we don't have a 4x4. Is it possible to find an Uncrowded section of surf (and still catch fish) without driving down the beach? We don't really care what we catch, we just love having a fish on the end of our line(maybe with the exception of a never ending procession of salt cats). How can I do my best to make sure she has a blast and catches some fish? What do y'all think about the Fisherman's motel? Should I try to borrow a 4x4 truck to go down there? Any tips help! Thanks!
