If it were me, I'd hit up Elmer's surf 1st and even fish the spots along the gravel road going onto the beach at Elmer's. You may score on some redfish. If nothing there, then hit the surf on the east end and go to the rocks. Live shrimp may be best as the sun gets up. Topwater and plastics in the morning.
All the crowd should be gone or leaving by Monday.

Well, Just got back form the Island. Had a decent trip numbers wise caught a lot of white trout and channel mullet on everything i threw at them except live bait. All fish caught were tiny replicas of each other. I don't know what i was doing wrong could not get a fish over 12 and no specks either. We hit Elmers and tore up the white trout on every soft plastic in the box bumping it on the bottom. Used Live shrimp and only sail cats and hardheads. all in all it was a fun trip. Water was a little dirty and HOT! Like bath water.
