Trip Description: Offshore near Bob Hall Pier. True Beyond the Breakers Experience

Just like last summer 2016, I wanted to do something again for this summer 2017 in regards to BTB kayak fishing for new people (of course intermediate and advanced kayakers are welcome). Three years ago in July I put together a BTB trip for anyone that wanted to get out to do BTB at Surfside. This included kayakers of all levels.

It was awesome! We had a total of 34 kayakers that made it out that day. Many just went to the buoys while others went to the 5-mile rig. It was really cool to see that many yaks out on the water. Some of the people that fished off of the jettys at Surfside thought that there was a tournament going on with that many kayaks launching. Two years ago in July I ran another one of these events except it was run out of Corpus Christi another successful event was held!



This year I’m going to do it at Corpus Christi again out at Bob Hall. We all meet just south of Ball Hall Pier on the beach and make our way on out to the standpipe oil platform to try our luck at smacks, kings, and anything else that we can get into. If you are new to BTB, this would be a great trip to try out. The standpipe is not far offshore (maybe a mile) and there will be plenty of support out on the water with all the kayakers that will be fishing with us.

This is not a tournament. It's just a way to get all levels of kayakers out on the water and to have fun hanging out while fishing.



The game plan is for everyone to meet just south of Bob Hall Pier on the beach at 6:00am Sunday, June 11th. We will launch around 7:00am. There will be a short meeting before hand to answer any questions by anyone. There will be plenty of experienced kayakers there that can answer anything.



*****If the weather or conditions are bad this particular weekend, I have a backup weekend for Sunday, July 23rd. Hopefully the weather will be good and we can all get out on June 11th. If interested, post your name on here and I will add you to the list.*****
