Can anyone give me an update on beach conditions, I was planning I’m going down PINS for a fishing trip this weekend but am concerned about the coastal flood advisory....now I’m considering going to Matagorda beach or Freeport...I appreciate any info...plan to arrive Friday morning and stay through Sunday morning

How long will it be like this?

Very beautiful but high tides... timing is everything.
