Yeah, I recommend NOT taking the family to the end of the jetties. It can get too rough, hard to anchor, many break offs, etc, etc. Take them to any rig structure in Aransas Bay, (anything could be there), Traylor Island shoreline (trout and reds), Deeper water around East Flats (trout and reds), anywhere calm where the family can enjoy fishing and not have any other worries.
Kings, if it were me and my buddies, would definitely check out the jetties. Who knows, one trip across a rough bay and perhaps they won't want to go again. And now as I recall, that's how most trips end. Too bad my buddies are going. hehehe
