Is there a good source for the actual chart or would the hook and line chart be good for that as well?

Does the Troutsupport DVD provide info for navigating or just fishing tips?

Is there anything marking most of these dangerous obstructions?

Good to know I was starting to worry...is todds dump or the gas well marked at all? Do I need to stay away front the PVC?

Wendy is such a great old pro. If you can get advice from him, it will be the gospel.
Good to know. Thanks! Does he work most days?

That is good to know as some people were starting to make me worry whether or not I should even try GBC or just go to Sargent and hit East Mad. Greens lake good for Reds, Trout, or both?

I've caught a bunch of trout there but never have caught a red there. One thing I noticed from my experience is that I've caught my numbers there than size.

You can get the NOAA paper chart at West Marine or online. The Hot Spot maps are pretty good for fishing spots and are probably easier to find locally for you. They are also waterproof so they are good to have on the boat with you.

The Trout Support videos are all about how to read the water and understand what's going on to help you find productive water. So fishing tips but on a next level.

Ride over to east bay can be rough if the wind is over 15mph. A few obstructions others mentioned you need to watch out for. If you have a gps most will be on it. Plenty of fishing spots on this side of the channel too.

I just read a post about the Troutsupport DVDs and I will definitely be purchasing the 4 pack. Thanks.

Eagle Point area,
There is a reef or sandbar that runs east west from
Eagle point towards RedFish Rocks.
The south side of this reef has several obstructions. Not marked.
You might see it you might not. I have two of them marked, one
seems to be missing, or sunk. last time i was there.
I fish mostly on the north side of it . Not much ship wake there.
with dead shrimp, easy to catch whiting, croakers, gaff top hard heads
sand trout.
To the west of there you will see a large gate ( moses lake ) ,
Fishing either side can be producttive, inside the lake , becarefull
lots to hit in there but the fishing can be good and its a good place to hide
on some windy days.

Ship Wake danger:

anywhere outside and close to redfish rocks.
anywhere south, north, west side of the island 5 miles due east of kemah.

I have seen rollers breaking near the dike and north not far off the channel.

Best bet till you get familar, tie a float to end of anchor line, If you get in trouble throw the line in the water , point nose into the swell , gas it and
get ready to ride down back side of swell and meet another .
Hopefully you wont smack the bottom.
Texas city dike is a place to watch out for at the ramp.
