Week Vacation, Offshore/Inshore Fishing

Discussion in 'Offshore Fishing Reports' started by North Texas Fiberglass, Aug 13, 2007.

  1. I'm treating the family to a week's vacation on Tiki Island at Galveston. We have a private house available on the water with it's own dock and boat lift. We will be doing inshore trips during the week and have a 30 Hr trip on the Big E planned August 23&24th.

    Any iseas for inshore fishing. I don't know what much about Galveston Bay.

    NTF,

    Will you have a boat to use that week?
    If so what kind?
    From Tiki you can fish from a John Boat or from a Grady or if no boat you can wade.

    let me know and I'll try to suggest some late summer patterns and areas to check.

  4. Sigh, at this point, it looks like the trip will be rescheduled with Hurricane Dean moving in. I know the Big E won't go out if he's in the lower end of the gulf. Especially since they've cancelled three trips recently due to weather.

    You wouldn't want to be vacationing in San Antonio today. Tropical storm
    "ERIN" is shutting down the city. I've received over 6 1/4" of rain since 11:30 today at work. Some areas are reporting 8" already and it's still raining. IH35 downtown has a low section. Over 25 cars and tractor trailers are under water right now. I hope I can get home. I don't think Corpus even got a drop. The eye has been stalled over SA for over three hours.

    This just came by email on my computer. Looks like were in for a long afternoon.

    SKR,

    Are you all cancelling your plans to go to Cancun? Just wondered, it doesn't look too good at this point. Was really looking forward to the pictures from the resort.

    travel agent keeps telling us we HAVE to go if the plane flys down there or no money back.... I keep telling her she if freakin crazy... We are scheduled to fly down on Sunday morning... about 12 hours BEFORE the Cat 4 storm will hiit.... SHe seems to think it would be a fun life experience to be donw there... I told her I think its gonna be fun calling the credit card company and denying the charges......

    I think we are gonna go for it!?! the crazy adventourous side of me is interested in a hurricane..... it keeps tracking north a little more each day....Wish us luck!!
