Trip Description:  This is a 4-day trip to a very prestigeous place to catch not only the obvious fish we catch in the Texas coastal waters but SNOOK as well!  That's right, you heard me.  Snook!!!  After many PACK memebers heard the Zoom September meeting, with guest speaker Danno Wise, many wanted to do a trip down to Port Isabel.  Guess what, this is that trip!

I am using artificial.  If you are using artificial, some of the things that work well are:

*  soft plastics

*  spoons

*  popping corks

*  gulp

*  top water lures

*  crank baits

*  just about anything you would throw elsewhere works here as well

If you are a beach person, you can camp on the beach further north of Port Isabel.  Anything past beach access 5 you should be able to camp from what I was told.  I was also told that there might be a daily fee to get onto the beach with your vehicle.  If that is the case, you can certainly inquire on things once you arrive.  

I looked into a place that has RV and tent camping.  The name of the park is Isla Blanca Park.  This park is located just above the Port Isabel jetties.  The cost for this place each night is as follows:

Premium spots (water/electric) = 30 & 50 amp - $50.00

Non Premium spots (water/electric) = 30 & 30 amp - $40.00

Premium camping spots = $30.00

Non primative camping spots = $20.00

The address to this RV park is:

Isla Blanca Park

33174 State Park Rd. 100

South Padre Island, TX  78597

956-761-5494 or 956-761-5493

There are plenty of spots available so book now while the spots are open.  This is where I will be staying at.  If you are pulling a RV or pop-up, you can have that and up to two vehicles.  If you are primative camping you can have up to two vehicles.  You will not be allowed to pitch more than one tent on a site, however, you can pitch a large tent and have multiple people staying there on one site.
