Trip Description:  Quarantine Paddle In / Cancelled - Severe Weather expected


-Meet at Steadman Island public boat ramp at 8:00 am  

-Pack kayaks 

-Shove off about 9:00 am for the quarantine shoreline

This is a primitive weekend camp out and fishing adventure in Aransas Bay. It requires a 5 mile paddle to the camping area at Quarantine. Everyone must be able to carry all their gear, food and water needed for the weekend, there will not be any planned group meals.  Would recommend that you bring a min of 1 gal of water per day and some form of shade if you have it.  An umbrella can work real nice for this. 


Our camping location will allow easy access to South Aransas Bay, Near Shell Bank Island, with lots of marsh and deeper channels to fish.

The average weather for that time of year is temperature 75-90 deg with 25% chance of rain and mild winds, but we all know the weather. The shore line is mainly shell with some sand but it has been beaten up pretty bad by Harvey so old Boy Scout structure is no longer there.  We will scout around until we find a good place to set up camp. 

Skill Level: Advanced 

The skill level for this trip is rated as advanced due to the 5 mile paddle, primitive camping and the fact that everyone must be able to carry all their gear for the weekend. The difficulty of the 5 mile paddle depends upon the wind conditions; it varies from easy to difficult
