Do you love spending quiet time with a line in the water, enjoying the Gulf breeze while waiting for a bite? Maybe you’ve thought about meeting other anglers or even fishing competitively.
Unwritten common sense rules
The bays, coves, flats and channels, which are all part of the North Bay area, may appear to a “land-lubber” as open water with all different types of watercraft moving freely anywhere they wish when they want. This could not be farther from the truth.

Courtesy? Whether it is in the workplace, in the home, in the community or while participating in recreation, we have a choice about how we behave. At this time of year, the parking lots of North Bay boat ramps are filled each weekend. Boaters and fishermen arrive with smiles and plans for a fun day on the water. It’s not unusual, though, for these happy faces to disappear during the launching experience.
The pier fishing community
Each open fishing pier in the North Bay area is usually filled with fishermen on the weekends and weekday evenings.

Tour de Bocrie
Mid-afternoon on Friday, April 20, a biker wearing a neon yellow helmet and jacket came over the crest of the Dale Miller Bridge on Hwy 361 on a touring bike with red and black saddlebags. Close behind came a second biker wearing a similar helmet and jacket but with blue and white saddlebags.
Let’s go fishin’!
A couple with a young teenage son sat in the Aransas Pass café waiting for their order to be served. During their conversation, the wife asked her husband, “What do you think they do for fun around here?” Without hesitation, the husband replied, “Go fishing!”
A friend I haven’t yet met
The sun was just coming up when Mike Ley stepped off the 7:00 a.m. ferry boat that carried him from Port Aransas across the Corpus Christi Ship Channel to the north jetty on San Jose Island. He took a picture of the sunrise then started walking south close to the dunes along the hurricane wrack line.
Spring Texas Wildflowers
Spring wildflowers, spring equinox, spring break…all reasons to visit my coastal world, the North Bay of the Texas Coastal Bend. The Gulf beaches may be a final destination for the first day of spring, but the varied colored carpets of flowers scattered along the highways and streets as you make your way will brighten the day.
Enjoy the weekend!
Spring Break, warm weather and St. Patrick's Day means North Bay visitors and residents are looking for something to do. My Coastal World is a one-stop internet location for finding what you are looking for.
