PINS Surf Report - Padre Island National Seashore

   Well, they say wait thirty minutes and the weather will change in south Texas. The last two weeks have certainly been that way and, if the weatherman is correct, the next two weeks will follow suit. Yes, this will of course affect the fishing but in most cases it will make it even better. For those willing to have a little patience and wait for the right conditions, some of the best fishing of the year will be present along the shores of the coastal bend.
