 I WANT TO FISH HERE. Says PETE VIGIL

Little Shell is on Padre Island National Seashore operated by the National Parks Service.  I wrote a small portion about Little Shell because to get to Little Shell you usually need a 4 wheel drive vehicle and it is often ''4 low'' in the Little Shell area.  That is the reason you won't find the usual beach crowds. You may want to add for people considering going to Little Shell to contact the National Parks Service
    at (361) 949-8068 for driving conditions or they may end up getting stuck in the sand and shells and have to dig their vehicle out with a shovel or ask someone to tow them out.  I fish in this area and would not like to see a tourist
to get stuck and ruin their vacation because they think it is easy driving.  The National Parks Service actually has a sign that says ''4X4 Driving Only'' miles before getting to Little Shell.  As an example, on the 4th of July weekend this year I saw two vehicles get stuck on Padre Island National Seashore and high tides resulting in one person loosing their vehicle...it was a total loss because after getting stuck in soft sand the tides came in and the vehicle  
    ended up being in 3 feet of salt water. Says

Hotels are slightly far from the beach. LOL  Little shell is generally 4X4 driving on Padre Island National Seashore to get to which is why you don't see the great crowds as stated. 
 Fun place for fishing away from the crowds and many a Texas fisherman have slumbered in their vehicle or tents at Little Shell. Says DC
