Study Google earth on a clear water aerial and make waypoints of where are the reefs are for navigation purposes... that's the only real con for the area... some of the reefs come up right the surface.. if you notice odd ripples where there shouldn't be any, or it's calm or less ripples or waves where you think it shouldn't be.. then stay away or come off plane 50 yards out to make sure you're not running up on a reef.
Don't worry so much about water color and wind protection either.. yes, it's beautiful when it's like that but these Texas Coast fish are used to feeding in off color water and winds ...otherwise, they'd starve. Learn to use the wind as your ally. The wind push water and on weak tides that is what is going to give you consistent results over not having any tide movement. It can make redfishing much more consistent once you learn how to use it. With off color water.. which is what I prefer to fish, just use darker lures or louder lures. In soft plastics anything olive, green, pumpkin, or black with or without a chartreuse tail will get eatin. With lures, if its dirty and choppy a one knocker or windier yet, a she dog will get the job done. The real key is being able to learn to read the water to be able to locate fish. If you are in fish.. it doesn't matter what color the water is. They will eat nearly transparent forage in the dirtiest water conditions with out rattles.. and even in those conditions in the dark of night.
