PINS 5/3/19

Like a moth to a flame they say. There’s nothing like a good storm, and today surely didn’t disappoint, as I was right there in the mix with it. With the barometric pressure doing quite interesting things, and an incoming doozy of a rainmaker from the west to make landfall shortly, it was bound to be interesting. By 9am, friends with Turtle Science and Recovery gave me a heads up as they rounded up the patrollers to shelter in place. There were reports over the radio of 90mph winds, and it’s safe to say no one wanted any part of that. But time waits for no man, and I suppose I kept right on fishing through it all. Thankfully, the south end of Padre avoided the worst of it and we made out without the high winds, and only some good rains.
