I'm heading down after work, going to hit the surf from 7 to about 9 or 10.

Where by the Flagship? I'll be wearing a fedora-like hat and a brown shirt, if I manage to break free from here.

Is the night fishing in the surf any good, and if so what kind of lures? I was going to throw a chartruese/bone skitterwalk or similar while there is light and maybe something dark after the sun goes down, and perhaps some soft plastics.

lol...not quite sure where I'll be yet...somewhere between 1 and 6 most likely, looking for some bait or birds. I'll be down around 4:30 or 5.
Same here. I'll go by the flagship and if it looks "fishy" with bait, I'll wade on the west side between it and the rock groin or on the west side of that groin, maybe even fish off the groin. But if there are better looking places down by the rocks past the groind, I'll be there. I can't stay long so I'm going to hit water as soon as I can.

went to the groin across from the commodore hotel, then the crowds started to show up.
I found out that there are also land based potlickers out there, and this other guy starts to throw a castnet where I am fishing, got fed up and left, went to the groin across from the San luis hotel had one hit. called it a night.

I was late to the beach, ny wife had an emergency involving a lost debit card and no cash on hand. Arrived fairly frustrated around 8 and figured I'd better get wet or it would be too dark to see. Didn't want to spend my time driving all over the island, so I just stopped in between the 61st street pier and the long galveston pier, about midway between. Water looked great, green and slightly sandy, 1' to 2' visibility, some light breakers over the bars, bait everywhere, a few people fishing, saw a real nice cut between the first and second guts, so in I went.

Threw a chartruese/bone skitterwalk for a while, had a bump but no takers, tossed a chartreuse/gold Catch 2000, nothin', then tossed a pumpkinseed/chartreuse shrimptail, had a few hits and no hookups, got dark, so I left around 9:30.

Lots of bait in the surf, saw both finger mullet and shad, and the rafts of huge mullet, saw a few larger fish swim by and spook. Lots of seaweed but not as bad as it was two weeks ago, I only snagged a clump five or six times, but it was wrampping around my legs from time to time, I hate that.

It was nice to be in the water even with no fish.

I might take you up on that, I've not been down to Surfside in a decade. I'll be fishing Friday night and maybe hanging around through Saturday. Kinda in the air right now.
