Should be great as long as the wind is not to strong for kayaking. How do you plan to fish? Bait, tackle, etc. And hopefully, not too many boats out there running around. You can get to places the boats cant get to on a kayak.

Braid with flouro leader rockport rattlers gulp shrimp and other plastics as fish dictate hopefully...I just hope wind plays wel. I have an chor which isually helps.

Instead of South..head North to the small bay that is visible from the launch..I believe it is called Night Hawk Bay..not sure. Over the years I've caught many trout and reds out of that area. Usually underutilized. It's all wadeable though some areas are pretty soft. It is very protected when you have a high South coming across the Island. Look for small drops and pot holes if the tide is pretty low. remember you can wade almost the whole area out to the ICW. Don't be bashful about anchoring up and getting out to wade. Its quieter and very effective.
Send me a PM and let me know how you do.
Tight lines!

Thank you for the tips I really appreciate it, I thought that is what this site was for and some people seem to think they will be hurting their fishing by giving fair, honest advice. Thank you once again I will head your advice I always keep my wadegear on when Kayaking. Mainly because my back hurts and I need to stand up and walk :-). I will definitely let you know how it goes....I started wadefishing about 3 years ago and have plenty spots in Rockport but none around North Padre and that is where the wife picked out a condo for this trip...
