Texas coast in October?

I am considering exploring the Texas coastline near the end of October. The starting point would be Mcallen (near Brownsville) and I am looking for input and/or fishing partners. Answers to the usual questions are needed. Do I need a guide? Do I need a boat? Is it a safe area to rent a car and go off exploring? What areas should I be researching? etc...... If you live in the area or would like to give it a try let me know. I hate fishing alone but will do what I have to in order to visit a new part of the planet with a fly rod in hand.

Doug

Hi Doug
I have fished the Laguna Madre area near South Padre Island for redfish.

I am not sure that it is that easy to fish without a guide.

I have a few names of guides. If you are interested send me a PM.

Pete

There is nothing worse than a guy asking questions about a destination and then not getting back to the thread letting those who helped him know how he made out. Thanks for your help but unfortunately my plans fell through. Texas is still on my list of places to fish and I now have a head start with the advice I received here.

Thanks
Doug
