Aransas Bay Packed

Aransas Bay, like I suppose the other bays, is overflowing with boats and fisherman this weekend. Large numbers of waders are fishing in the deepest water they can stand in without being in over their heads. (Word's out that current fish concentrations are around 5 feet deep). Standing hundreds of yards from shore in places like Paul's Mott, with water up to their armpits, and no conspicuous colors they are bolder than I am. Fishermen typically run that shoreline too close for courtesy and I wouldn't be surprised if some drunk or otherwise distracted boater runs over a wader.

I went out yesterday afternoon, and you're right.

I tried to head in before the evening rush started. There were a couple of guys launching, so I had to wait to get to the ramp. And wait. A couple more guys showed up and meandered down to the same boat. One of the first guys had to go back to his truck to get something. A couple more guys show up and hop in. Two more guys get out and go back to their trucks. They're all yelling and high-fiving, coming and going while I wait. Finally, all six guys are in the boat, and they pull away from the dock. And I hear the guy driving say. "Okay... beer check. Who wants one?" And he starts passing around the brews while the boat is still moving (without him steering), because everybody wants one.

And these are the guys who have the job of watching for people wading, up to their shoulders, hundreds of yards from shore.

You are braver than I sir. Bring your own bay on holidays. If you ever see a guy in a big bright orange shelta hat, that's me. My wife told me the blaze orange looked like a woman hat. I told her this is so some dip sh&t not paying attention may just see this hat.

This is why the only water I’m getting in this week is the pool.

I like Tilley hats but they don't have a blaze orange. I didn't know about Sheltas until your post. I think I'll get one. I think wearing Hi-Viz colors while wading is prudent. I don't need to show off my good taste to the fish, so fashion isn't a priority for me. The day before I saw those folks far out and barely visible I saw two guys in chartreuse wading off Traylor Island. Even from a distance they were easy to see.

i love my Shelta Hat. i have the Seahawk in Blaze Orange. The brim doesn't fold down when wet. I haven't lost it going full out in our mini hurricane winds the last few weeks.

The vast majority of people launching there boat do not know how to pack there boat before backing into the ramp.

I fished Galveston for the first time this weekend going out of the end of the Dike...TOTAL MAD HOUSE!!! No idea how people run out of there all the time. Im a normal Rockport guy and thought it was bad but nothing compared to over there.

This is one of the reasons I really like the Fishhide shirts. The bright orange stripe on the back and down the back of the arms gives me a slight bit of comfort when wading.
