There were three other kayakers who had mother-shipped into the flats so we had to adjust our plan and paddled farther down the point than we wanted to. We staked out our kayaks and split up wading looking for reds on the shallow flats. Seeing nothing we reconvened paddled south to start drifting a "deeper" section of the flats. It's about 3 or so inches deeper than where we had been. Not long into the drift Ron hooked up with a slot red. As he was stringing his fish up I plopped my lure in front of a small school and strung up a red myself. This prompted Ron to get out and wade while I decided to stand up in my kayak to sightcast. I made 3 more drifts and was able to land two more just-under-slot reds and ripped the lure from two other reds.
Since I had to make the drive back to San Antonio we made the call to paddle back in around noon. Some could've, would've, should've talk happened on our paddle back in, but we managed to find a few reds and string a couple up fishing post front conditions. So, not too bad.
