I've seen guys catch a lot of Mangrove at the jetty, but I haven't been back there in a couple of years

When I went to school down there we'd catch em off the jetties. Kayak into the port, or the Gayman Bridge on 48 from Brownsville to Port Isabel. Waters kinda cool so not sure if you'd still be able to catch em right now. I'd say it beats staying at the house.

Good Luck

Brownsville ship channel

Pull up to any deep water structure along the channel, and you will find all that you want to catch.

This. Hard to get to with out a boat and really need a ripping tide there. The water is really cool right now so not too sure how much luck you will have.

Caught some big ones at the end of the jetty but the water was 15* warmer at least.
This one was pretty big.
