Why don't you break a section into 100 foot segments. Each fisherman get 10 minutes and then must move on to the next segment. Catch and release. Longest stringer wins.

Outing Chat / Re: What to do in November?
« on: October 23, 2012, 01:15:25 PM »
Maybe this is a good time to explore some new  turf and report back to the November meeting.  Divide into groups of 2 and check the ox-bow's on Bastrop Bayou, or the Cedar Lake's and Cow Trap at the mouth of the San Bernard River. ( Puc k says he  has fished Cow Trap but is keeping very quiet about it.)

Chocolate Bay has a massive oyster reef in its middle and deep grass lined cuts around it.

Take pictures, put them on a CD and tell Jim R you need viewing stuff....... Either as part of the meeting or before the meeting.

When in Texas drink as Texans do.
Isn't Tequila the state drink?

You'll have to parden my ignorance.  I'm not a native Texan, but I got here as quick as I could.

When I was a member of the Bakersfield CA fly fishers, they would charter a bus once a year and to go to the San Juan. Left late afternoon and arrived the next early morn, where they were staying.
