Friends of Padre Beach Report 8/11/2015

By Tyler Thorsen

FOP REPORT 081115 Via Jeff Wolda Air Temp: 84 Water Temp: 76-79 Wind: 5SE Waves: 1ft Water: Dirty to the 2nd bar and trying to clear late day Weed: None Driving: Excellent with a little 4x4 south at high tide The cold water upwelling is back. Dirty to the 2nd bar north of the 35 with water temps around 79. South of there the water clears late in the day but is noticeably colder. There is bait the length of the beach with mullet and schools of dusky anchovies moving in late in the day. Most of the schools seem to have small skipjacks and bluefish preying on them. Hopefully a week of light SE winds and calm seas will help get rid of the upwelling.
