Default Port Mansfield VS Port Isabel Fishing

My son and I are headed down to South Texas for a Nilgai Bull Hunt next month and I am looking at pulling my Scout 177 down with us a couple days early and renting a house with a slip. I have never fished this area and Iím curious which would be better. I hear the lower Laguna Madre is shallow and that Port Mansfield is a 20 mike run to the land cut which is deeper. Any input from the green screen?

Why run all the way to the land cut? The scout is plenty shallow to fish down there you just need to be careful where you are running.

Both places have great fishing.

Port Mansfield is one of my favorite places. And nothing like hand feeding 150 inch whitetail

This. I love Mansfield and fish it out of my 24' blazer bay. Just have to go slow when not in the channel.

Go where the fish are. I'd stay in Port Isabel/SPI area because I am from that area and used to fish or regularly...but if the fish aren't cooperating ,you can run up the bay.
