Hello all. I trying to figure out some viable options for getting out into the Gulf near Aransas Pass or Corpus Christie area when the surf is rough, but the seas are doable. I fish from a Hobie TI and I'm not a rookie. I live in Oklahoma so my research is restricted to online information. I noticed on Google Earth that there is a public ramp 2.56 miles from the entrance to Aransas Pass. Is that a viable plan and is there rigs within a couple of miles of the entrance? 2.56 miles to the surf line bites but sometimes I don't want to risk my Hobie in the surf. Second option that I saw on Google Earth is Packery Channel boat ramp at only 1 mile to the entrance at the Gulf and 84 yards wide so it's not a narrow shoot like Rollover Pass. I really like the looks of the second option. Is the packery channel to the Gulf a viable option for a hobie TI, or is there something I'm not seeing on Google Earth, IE low power lines or dangerous structure just under the surface? Thank you for any info or suggestions that you all can provide.
