Gulf Coast - South Padre Island

Tip of the week 
Techniques 

Fish also turning to tan shrimp and impressionistic olive and black crabs, Go to longer leaders and 2x fluoro for fussy white sand fish....consider hairbugs and small poppers on crawling fish as water levels go above 70* The TPW 5 trout / day on lower Texas coast continues to bring better average fish to hand.... and TPW has moved to go 5 trout limit on the middle Texas coast Sept 1 2014!

Seven-day forecast 

SSE 10 to 15 with 40% to 80% chance of rain over next 10 days , calm early AM conditions warrant a look out side Jetties in Port A and Port Mansfield SE Wind picking up making jetty visits bumpy, consider walking N Boca Chica jetty The Arroyo and South Bay on soft plastics and clear intermediates with white and chartreuse flies to 5" , tailing trout on grassy ICWW spoils Snook action fair in Brownsvillle ship channel and South Bay

Conditions 

. Scattered singles of slot reds found on sand on east shore from SPI to Port Mansfield... Eating small white seaducers, chartruese snake flys, tan/ white clousers, and tan, black, and olive crabs on 6 to 8 weight rods and at least 9' of leader, down to 12# fluoro. Good to better blindcasting for trout and reds near ICWW on seaducers and larger poppers (+4"-6" ) before sun gets up
