I’m also grateful for all the fine fishermen that have bounced around terrific information on this board. I’m grateful for the amazing folks that I’ve been lucky enough to fish with. The things I’ve learned from them and the good times we’ve shared are priceless. It’s not a bad thing to have a gratitude list. I’m grateful for the very fine resource we have, the abundant public waters up and down the coast. I do love Texas and feel uncommonly lucky to call it home.

Or is it a giant pod of reds beating the bottom (we can only hope) lolMost of the upper coast in inundated with fresh water right now. That's the brown water he's talking about.
Some guys can do really well in brown tide, but I’d rather avoid it all together and search for cleaner water. I’d search for good bait action if I had to fish it.
If it is a wind blown situation, then it can be utilized for better in certain situations.
A loud top water or piping cork over a tout can be a game changer in muddy water. Some of the best days of fishing I’ve ever had were on windy muddy days. The key was to get to an area the bait would either escape to, or be forced into such as a tidal edge or protected water. Finding the bait is king in these situations.
