Default Fishing around Port A/Corpus Christi

Okay all here is the deal, gonna take the GF down to do some fishing the first week of June. I want to get her on some good fish and it's been a few years since I've hit it hard. She loves to fish and if I can get her hooked on the coast, I'm in like Flynn.
What has the water been like? Stained, clear?
What have y'all been finding to be a good pattern?
Do you think it will last?
Any other clues will be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance!!!

Take her on a guide.

The water changes so much depending on wind. Last time I was down it was stained but green where I was one day and mud the next. Then clear in another area.

The pattern I found was top water was key.

As blackfin stated the wind will dirty the water quick. I am going down there this weekend into next week and plan on ripping lips. Can let you know what we did next week. I cheat a little I have a son living in Port A he keeps me on the fish when I get there

Best thing we did was take the jettyboat over to the north jetty on Sat. That may be a good trip with the girlfriend; you get to ride a big boat and do a little fishing also. We caught two nice kingfish; biggest 46" and a small spanish mack using large stick baits with wire leader on the surf side.
Just make sure you take everything with you that you will need. No water, restrooms, ect over there.

The surf may be going good the first week of June also if the water stays clear. We never fished the surf last week.

Joe’s Crabshack on the way back. When the wind is outta the South, its kinda tuff on the jetties or off the beach. Irie’s, Trout Street, or Whataburger on Port A.

Just drive down on the Padre seashore after dinner, fake like you are baiting a line, drink wine and make love...Hooked fer sure!
