Plan around the wind.
If we get anywhere from NE to SE, Trout Bayou on Estes Flats is tough to beat.
Brown & Root flat fishes well on a SE.
If we get a strong NW, East Flat on Mustang Island (across PA ferry) is at the top of the list.
It's always good to paddle upwind to fish structure, and time it with tides, then drift-fish home with a drift sock at your stern.
Slopes fish well on a cold front and especially with a falling tide.
If you go to Lighthouse Lakes you can be on fishy water sooner than just about anywhere else, and a NE will also get you home from there.
I haven't looked at the forecast, and think when and where you go relative to the wind and cold.
