DIRECTIONS TO THE SLABS

DIRECTIONS TO DIRTY PELICAN (DP)

approximately ~5 miles west of the 87 & 124 intersection...note:all the piers on Bolivar Peninsula no longer exist...

DIRECTIONS TO SUN OIL (BOLIVAR PENINSULA)

Sun Oil is located on bolivar peninsula (in between stingaree road and rollover pass) Theres a street thats called Los Patos Drive on google maps (This is the area we call Sun Oil...large area with no beach houses) Note: Can't access the beach taking Los Patos Dr. Coming from High Island, its about 4 miles west from rollover pass. Or it's 2.5 miles east of stingaree road or south cove.


1) You can either take stingaree or south cove (which is 2 streets over). Once on the beach head east (take a left) past all the beach houses (about 2.5miles).

2) or you can take one of the beach access roads closer to rollover pass and head west. ( Cade ave, salaparuta st, and smith dr, Can't remember which one is/are accesses to the beach.)

When y'all say beyond the breakers, how far out are we talking. What is the maximum y'all are going out. I'm a huge SOB so I bought a pontoon boat instead of a yak...it was just more affordable than a 16' dive and fish yak. I want to know how far y'all are going out to catch ling and kings.

I'm new to anything other than wade fishing. I'm a big SOB, so rather than spend a fortune on a kayak that would fit me, I got a pontooon boat. What I'm wondering is how far out are y'all going. I hear yout alk about catching kings and ling (offshore fish) and I wonder how far out y'all paddle? Question number 2 is do you prefer to fish off the bottom with a balloon or on the bottom with a weight? If you use a balloon, how much line do you drift under the balloon?
I live on the west end of Galveston, about a couple of blocks from the Galveston Pier. Does anyone ever launch from that area and if so do you have much luck?

Just saw where the old BTB ARTICLE was previously referenced, but is no longer attached to Wolfman's post. So, here it is again - for those who may have missed it a couple of years ago.

I downloaded the article for future reference but it is password protected. Is it for general use? If so, I guess a password it needed. I find all the information on this sight very, very helpful and thank all the "old salts" for sharing their knowledge and experience with us new comers.

Sorry about the hassle due to my oversight. The re-posted pdf file is no longer protected.
Anyone who downloaded the previous file may use "TKF" to open it.

No prob; hope it is of benefit. That file was my first exercise in creating interactive pdf documents (a real learning-experience).
BTW: Each section-title (#) has an embedded clickable-link to the original TKF thread from which that section was created. Those threads contain a lot of follow-up dialog for each specific section.

Ha, I just reviewed one of the initial threads and noted where MythMan referred to himself as a "newbie... with limited experience..." in BTB fishing. That readily indicates how long ago these threads were posted... :lol:
