Sharks I havenít been able to get into yet, but the reds and black drum have been good. This is the biggest of the day at 42Ē.

I'm hoping to be out there the 22nd. Don't know if it'll be a day trip or overnight yet. I'll get your number from Joshua or Andrew and text you that week

Last time I went, everything said open. Got turned around by PD as soon as I tried to leave Brownsville.
It's almost a 3 hour drive for me and it sucks not immortal till we get there and then take another hour plus to get to SPI

This is one of my biggest complaints about SpaceX shutting down access to the beach. It's not just how often is that's it's also whenever they want and often same day. It has been rare for the beach to be closed on a weekend though. You wanting to come down on a weekend or week day?

Nothing. Politicians on the other hand...

Even the cops that have turned me around are against the facility and procedures, so they have told me

Will be traveling from Galveston to Surfside beach and then on to Matagorda July 4th weekend. I don’t have a choice on the holiday weekend I have to be in Galveston on that Friday. Anyway I’ve never been down that stretch before. Anywhere good I should stop to fish?

In Galveston you can try surf fishing at 13 mile rd. The beach gets fluffy depending on the weather so hopefully you have 4wd. You can drive straight from Galveston and cross the toll bridge to hit Surfside. In Surfside I usually hit the beach at beach entrance 4 and turn left and drive down looking for good water and a clear spot away from the crowds. Surfside jetties are good too but will probably be elbow to elbow on the holiday weekend.

Heading to Surfside today for 5 days. Will definitely be running some lines out. Lost a couple good spinners last year to undersized leaders. Hopefully I have remedied that, we will see.
