Didn't they have 2  locations? Are we sure they didn't consolidate?
I heard the guy Brooks sold it to had another business and used Anglers Edge for PR connections.

I know a few years back he bought nearly all the chartered trips we had at the auction.

I fished the bayou for several years when it was open.
It sanded shut for natural reasons. What is going to keep it open. This is much the same at the San Benard River mouth. Money was spent to open it back up and you can watch it close up on google maps.

Glad to hear someone is fishing Chocolate Bay. Forty years ago that was one of the two places I would fish. Christmas Bay was the other.

Have you tried the horse shoes in Bastrop Bayou? Or Lost Lake?

Back in those days, the oysters were eatable. Kind of nice to anchor on top of the reef and fish the deeper water toward the shoreline. Between fish, enjoy reaching over the side get a cluster of oysters, pop 'em open and wash down with a  warm beer.  Then the   pollution moved in.

What do you need from me?

George brought 5 of the club rods to the fly tying class last night.

IIRC, there are 7 rods. Anyone know where the other 2 are?

WOB is wide enough that your rod may  reach half way across.

All of the bayou should be under the juris diction of the Harris county flood control district. That would be water level upto the overflow bank.  Lots of places no vehicle traffic allowed but foot trails abound.

What y ou say is most like the cause for a lifeless pond. However there is one other to be considered.

A bunch of years ago I went to the park/pond at South Post Oak and 610 for some casting lessons.  Friday the lawn was mowed and fertilised. That night it rained. When  we got there the ponds were covered with dead fish.
