Hey rebel. In response to your questions about Matagorda:

A friend of mine fished there the 29th of this month. He said the weed was not bad up to the 3 mile, which is where I think he fished. He ended up with 12 small sized black tips (2 to 3 feet) after fishing all day. You can view his report here: http://www.billism.com/forum_viewtopic.php?4.51

We went the weekend before that weekend and the water was chocolate milk, the weed was in abundance, and the wind was blowing. Looks like conditions are improving.

Thanks for the report.

For HI, the water was great. The only problem was the weed that kept dragging our lines in.
RA, I had a hell of a good time and can't wait to hit the beach next weekend.
