Hello fellow fisherfolks, I'm pretty new to all this salt water stuff (being from Iowa and all). I got a buddy that lives in Austin, in approx. 3 weeks I'm going to fly in and we're going to head south to Aransas for some fishing. My buddy got us set up with some 12 foot surf rods (spooled up with lots of 30lb) and we have some lighter tackle as well. We've been thinking about doing some surf fishing during the day and then hitting a pier at night. Any advice with regards to Mid August fishing in Aransas would be greatly appreciated.

Hit the Jetty!!! You won't go wrong there. Pack lite with backpacks.
