I'm way older(65), but wade fish frequently in the area you mentioned. I live in New Waverly now, so a good 70+miles for me anymore. Ex-corpsman attached to the Marines in the Viet Nam affair! Anyway, not really interested until after the winds and cool weather dies down for sure.....then we have option of surf all the way to Freeport and shore on Pelican Island or over on High Island.

PS...I have a large boat for inshore or offshore to 50 or so miles, but awful big to lug back and forth, so I haven't been.
