Friends of Padre Beach Report 4/25/2014

By 2

It took us over 3 ½ hrs. to travel to the 47 mile beach and we cut the trip off there due to the horrible driving conditions. Sargassum is stacked high and covers the entire beach and new weed is constantly coming in. Less on the North end where dead weed is thick in the guts. Quality fishing is impossible. Driving is tediously bumpy and slow due to the sargassum. Finger mullet were observed as were 3 large jack Crevalle and 5 sharks free swimming up to 5 feet long. Ladyfish and Spanish Mackerel were observed. Water is beautiful the entire length of the beach. 130 Red Knots (all in one bunch, 5 Curlew, 26 Yellowlegs (sp), 1 White-tailed hawk,, 2 Peregrines, 2 Golden Plover, 3 Spotted Sandpipers, 13 Blue Wing Teal and 342 Cattle egrets fop42504fop40251fop42502fop42503
