It was a BUST! But not for any other reason but logistics. At the last moment, we found out from my daughter at UT that she was being assigned as a Young Life Leader to one of the Austin High Schools. So instead of leaving Austin at 8am Friday, we stayed till the event end at 10pm! So instead, we left early Saturday morning for my younger daughter's dance competition that lasted all day and evening Saturday and began early again on Sunday. After visiting family Sunday late afternoon, it was time to return to Austin. Bummer!!!!
BUT... OMG, did I find some fish! Her events were at Moody Gardens and in between a couple of dances on Saturday, I walked along the canal that is on the east of the Moody complex and goes into Harve Lafitte & Lake Madeline. I could not believe its grass beds and the frequent mullet on top. The canal looked to be hard sand bottom. My rod in the car I know started twitching. Then on Sunday after all the awards were given, I pleaded with my wife for 10 minutes to walk to the very back (N) of the property, just to the west of the western most mooring pier on the back side of Moody Gardens. Again, mucho grass beds, but this time with mullet jumping like crazy. I have never seen an extended length streak-splash that traversed at least 15 feet in a matter of a second or two. There were trout and/or reds ripping through there.
Well, big note to self, try there next time.
But I want to thank your info. You have been an awesome contributor of knowledge to all of us other guys throughout the years. Thanks!
