A Break from the Wind

South Texas, and particularly the Lower Laguna Madre, has been in the grips of a persistent, howling wind for weeks.  Then, yesterday, it went flat calm and for some unknown reason the water exited the bay and took us to low water levels we usually only see in winter and July.  I caught a ride on Capt. Rick Hartman's boat along with Tony Kirk for a morning that happens only a handful of times a year.  We were surrounded by large groups of tailing redfish and they were hungry.

At exactly 9:45, the mullet disappeared, the tailing stopped and it was over.
