Outing Chat / POC BIG REDS
« on: October 19, 2013, 12:05:20 PM »
When down last weekend to fish with conventional rod and reels. For big reds.... We usually catch five or six big reds on a trip, but only caught one about 25-30lbs on a jig with gulp. I need someone to help me catch a big red like this on a fly rod...any takers.. I know were to find them but the only draw back is that they are in15/ 30ft or so of water..

Tales For 2012 / Find the Perch
« on: October 19, 2013, 07:59:29 AM »
I wanted to do some fly fishing in Port Lavaca, TX.. found a park off main drag with a pond.. Did catch any bass figure they were all caught out since it was a park... I started with a hopper that I used in Denver for trout... It worked, the perch loved it...See if you can find the perch in photo... all of them were this sizes.. should be monsters next year if they are not all caught.

 :)  I'm done working in Denver and will miss the great fly fishing there.. I didn't get to fish it all, but did had fun trying.. Ready to get serious with the club and learn more about casting and tying flies.  People, I have a 22ft Shallow Sport and know one to go fishing with... I'm not allowed to go fishing a lone anymore according to my wife...My retired fishing buddy went fishing by himself during the week... Slipped on the boat ramp while unloading his boat. Fell broke some ribs and knocked himself out. This happen at Horse Shoe Bend in Liver Pool,,no one was around to help him at the time..So when he awoke, he put the boat back on trailer and drove himself to E.R. for treatment. So from then on, he is grounded from going fishing alone again.  When my wife found out about this... Need, I say any more....I will furnished the boat to get some lessons on fly fishing on the water. I do wade and drift or run trolling motor in shallows. I plan to retire in June 2014.. Call if interested...713-816-0884. Don Hanselman.
