PINS Surf Report - Padre Island National Seashore

   Spring is here. Mother Nature may send us another late season cold front, but the fishing pattern on the National Seashore is definitely evolving into what it should be this time of year.The jacks showed up March 23, and were in the surf for a week, until a late-season front pushed them offshore. If things go the way they normally do, they should be running the surf zone in no time at all. Keep your fingers crossed for warmer temperatures, and a steady south-east wind.

   I feel the most over looked aspect of my articles is leader and tippet materials. I usually give a general length and breaking strength, but I don’t go into any detail why I am using said leader in whatever situation. This article is going to go into a little more depth about how, when and why we use the leaders we use, and I’ll break it down by fishing the flats as well as the surf and jetty.
