High guys, this is my first post on here. I have learned a great deal from reading other post and for that I am thankful. I was wondering if any of you know how to get to South Bay through a vehicle besides going all the way to the boca chica beach jetties. I don't own a boat yet but I would like to try my luck wading South Bay.

My "walk and wade" access was about 25 or 30 years ago or so but I caught many reds, a few trout and a snook walking in. Take the Boca Chica road and look for a low bridge over a dry gully. I walked to the left following the gully till I started seeing water and followed the water till it opened up in South Bay. Most of my reds came way up Bayou well before South Bay. I used 1/8 ounce Johnson weedless spoons since the water was so shallow. I was sight casting to reds that were feeding on fiddler crabs right on the shoreline. The backs of the reds were completely out of the water in some cases. Be careful..... many rattle snakes. If I wasn't 67 years old I'd be tempted to try iy again.

So did you check it out Pecheur? I was wondering if there was any place to launch a kayak from hwy 4, boca chica blvd. I've fished South Bay before launching from dolphin cove boat ramp but that is a mile paddle just to get to the mouth.

As I said it's quite a walk off of Boca Chica BLVD but it is doable. The fishing is well worth the walk.
Tight lines!

Thank you for the info 1 fisher77316, I'll be making my way down there sometime before Christmas, I was also told that there is also another way where you can launch your yak from shore by tuning left on eichorn boulevard in boca chica village. Look at google earth and type boca chica village. I was told you can acces the area with two wheel drive if it hasn't' taken rain for three days. I haven't had the chance to a wet a line but I'll definitely post it when I do check it out.
