The best plan is to watch the internet sites that can give you all the information you will need for the area. Here are the sites I use specifically for offshore planning.
First is the Bob Hall Pier report. You can pay the premium membership to see 16 days in the future. Free you only see a few days. It is worth the price IMHO. I look for 1-2 foot surf breakers and no winds over 15 mph. Like this coming Sun the breakers are 1 foot and low winds with an outgoing tide through the morning.https://magicseaweed.com/Bob-Hall-Pier-Surf-Report/361/
Second is Weather Underground for Corpus or the area you want to see. Go to "10 Day" view and see the wind and weather for the time you are looking from the Bob Hall site.https://www.wunderground.com/forecast/us/tx/corpus-christi/KTXCORPU205?cm_ven=localwx_10day
And last, check the tides to see when they will be moving so you are aware for safety and ease of accessing.https://tides4fishing.com/us/texas/bob-hall-pier-corpus-christi
Forgot this one. You can see the waves breaking at the pier to give you a view of the conditions before you go or plan.https://www.webcams.travel/webcam/fullscreen/1486829163
Here is a good site to plan a route and give it to others to know where you will be.https://www.gmap-pedometer.com/
Always try to go with a buddy for safety if new. Once you feel comfortable you can go alone but file a float plan with at least two people. Even if I go with someone I file a plan with my family in case.
