Outing Information Only / Re: Guadalupe One Fly - January
« on: December 11, 2013, 02:07:27 PM »
Folks

We have one cabin at Rio secured and the option on a second. Before I pay for the second to hold it I want to see if we can get more than 8 people signed up.

BE WARNED - ALL THE CABINS ARE DOUBLE BEDS! This means we will have 4 beds, one couch and space for three air mattresses up to a maximum occupancy of 8 people (or you can get very friendly with a fellow club member between now and the 18th Jan).

So far we have the following for Rio

1) Denis Auger - Friday & Saturday
2) Scott Breedlove - Friday & Saturday
3) George Sutherland - Friday & Saturday
4) Mike Quigley - Friday & Saturday

Anyone else?

Topic unlocked (really unlocked this time!) and ready for comments.

Please let me know how many folks are interested in accomodation on the river again. I will be calling Rio shortly to reserve a cabin.

Cheers

Awesome fish Scott!

Man, a fish that size, sight cast to in the surf would have almost been worth me leaving my better half alone at home with the baby.....almost but not quite!

All

I would suggest that you aim for after the first stocking (which is probably just before thanksgiving) as its up for debate if any fish have managed to hold over this year.

Puck - I am sending you a possible alternate location for a November freshwater trip - check your gmail!

Cheers

According to this link the ferry options are 5am or 6am. I think I will plan on taking the ferry route and get that 6am one as I am coming from the southwest side of town. I dont think there will be a big wait for the Ferry at 6am on a saturday?

This may be a silly question but which route is everyone planning on taking to get there? I assume the Ferry?

Are we still starting at 7am or will there be a few folks who want to get onto the water for day break? I am game.

You mean I can't fish one fly for the jacks and one fly for the reds?? Honestly this saltwater one fly seems much more serious than the freshwater one!:)

We did have a 12wt but we wanted to keep it rigged and ready should the tarpon show up. Last thing we wanted was a tarpon showing up when we were fighting a jack and have nothing to throw at it. The 10wt did fine on the jacks as they headed away from the rocks and into the deep water when hooked. I got busted off twice by something else though - it knew just where to go and how to take my fly through all the rocks. I am guessing a bull red maybe?

George - bring your 10wt, and intermediate or sink tip line and the biggest flies you have. If the weather cooperates Nick, Alex and I will be at the jetties early in the morning. The pain in my right bicep has gone now and I am ready to taco another fly rod :)

Mike - no places to stay in PO - we had to stay in Port Lavaca and make the last drive early in the morning. You were right about it being crazy - there were boats everywhere and the channel in front of clarks was packed with so many party people it looked like spring break. I wonder if all those women in bikinis swiming knew how many sharks there are there :)

Looking forward to the weekend!

Outing Chat / Port O'Connor Jack Crevalle

Brett Walker and I went out with Brent Hodges in Port O'Connor this past Saturday to do a little pre-fishing for the One Fly :) The reds were fairly uncooperative due to a combination of dirty water, clouds and the biggest fishing/party tournament I have ever seen with Poco Bueno in full swing.
However the jetties were fairly empty and the seas were calm enough that we made it out there in the beavertail with no issues. We saw one big school of tarpon busting on the top but they disappeared before we could get to them. However blind casting giant mullet patterns at the jetties produced several nice jacks and on two separate occasions something that pulled an entire fly line and a serious chunk of backing through the rocks before busting through 40lb fluoro and leaving deep score marks in my fly line. Wish I had seen what it was. Jack pictures below:
