Adventure Location: Rockport, Texas
The mouth of St. Charles bay is only a couple of miles wide but paddles like it is an eternity across it. This picture is from Goose Island SP pier parking lot. In lots of places in this body of water it is only inches deep. Lots of fish run around in that area but not lots of folks chase them due to the reefs.
Very close to the state park pier is several reefs that can be reached easily by the steps that lead down to them from the pier. Most folks fish from the pier when it is a lot more productive to wade the knee deep water on the reefs. Here is a yakker out there with his pet pelican working the reef over with a vengeance.
It was a fine day of taking pictures and the OFM used up a lot of electrons in his efforts. One of the pictures caught a yakker and the water/reef at a nice moment.
This is typical of the area and gives a sense of the navigation hazards for a power boat. We like the idea that you do not have to work yourself to death just to get to fishable water.
Over the years the OFM has visited Goose Island SP many times because the area is a nice area for trying to have tooooo much fun.
