First time post

I wasn't sure if there is a certain area to post new member topics, forgive me, I'm not big on computers. But anyway, glad o be on the forum and now that I have some free time this winter I really want to hit the water with my jonboat that I finally got rigged up with a trolling motor and yes I did get it registered. My weekends have been limited to bentsen state park lake since I live near mission but I want to get out to the bay. Any recommendations. I usually get around by paddling so I imagine that I can fish where most kayaks go. thanks for any help.
