Looking at going in the morning what do you think? Maybe a quick trip to sea rim.

Bob Hall Pier around noon today.. Didn't bring a rod, had the family there. Great wind & waves. Lots of guys fishing around. Never saw anyone catching though.

Really interesting thread! I've been wondering if there is a solid reference for surf heights. Just took a look at SwellInfo. Is the app a better version for the $3 fee? I generally fish Bolivar so I guess the closest report to that is choosing Galveston? Last, is there a good rule of thumb for a certain wind direction equating to flat surf? I.E: does N winds means more calm generally? Thanks in advance. Time is precious so the more info I have to pick and choose windows of opportunity the better.

North wind usually lays the surf but a light SE wind is usually the best for water clarity. SW wind makes the water sandy.

I've been on the beach since 11am this morning. Did see some casters on the second bar, but headed in as I was going out. Water is sandy green, breaking at the wade gut. Lots of birds working. Seen schools of large mullet in the second gut, and what I think was a smack chasing them. Have not been able to entice a bite on plastics, spoons, or shrimp. Did get some good practice with a baitcaster reel.

Mono leader with two size 3 circle hooks, 3 oz triangle weight on bottom, fishbites. Put in rod holder and don't touch it until you are 100% positive that a fish is hooked on it. Ignore the surf and weed tugging on the line occasionally.
Thanks... I got one on Saturday!
