General Fishing Notes for South Texas:

The winds and the weather has been more cooperative in the past week. It is hot, so stay hydrated. Choose your favorite plastics and free-line them or put them under a popping cork. Work the edges and deeper guts. When the winds are not a factor, be sure you are in a place with a good tidal flow.

Look for areas with shell bottoms, shell reefs, and other shell structures. As always, find the bait and you are likely to find the predator fish. Incorporate the major and minors into your fishing plans. Early mornings have been the most productive times.
