 :) The people that will be fishing in my boat is: Tom Parr, Denis Auger, Dave Garner...  We will be wade fishing....?  Bring the items that is required.  I will have water on board.  Tom Parr will ride with me.. with all the stuff in truck an in boat I will be full...

 If you have any medical problems- you shouldn't be riding on any boats until you see a doctor.. Safety is a big concern.   I can carry four people including myself, if we all are wade fishing, carry two  :)including myself if we fish from the boat.

Call next time--713-816-0884.. I'm retired after 27 June!!

I want to plan a fishing trip to Venice LA for four days... Fish two and half days and come home on fourth Oct.. I will take my boat -Need NO Fishin Guide,, I have fished in Sept and Nov in Yellow Cotton Bay  twice. Without a guide --marsh lands in 3 to four feet of water.. Three of us went an left Houston around 4am and arrived at lunch time.. Got the our room unload an hit  the water around 1pm and fished dark caught a least  150 trout and five or six reds. all on Mirrow Lures- Silver/Char- She Dog Top Water...   We fished  to dark, got clean up, get something to eat and get ready for more fun the next day.  I didn't  fly fish at the time, but would be a blast...Cannot wade to boggie--Excellent Yak fishing to but it's bit of ride to get the Yaks to the spot..  I can carry two Yaks an people on my boat if enterested. Well protected area from winds. alot of reefs and greass.   :)  Like to plan now who is going can do resarch on the area. Google Earth shows in detail of fishing area... If you want to hire a guide do so on your own.. The fishing is excellent unless it has changed sence I have been down...over ten  They have some excellent seafood places to eat in LA..

Nice, I need to get a Yak too... Looks like fun!!

Here is a video of Yak fishing under Galveston Causeway at night... I have done this many times out of my boat, chucking Mirrowdyns into the lights and caught limit in a hour.. I will be going to do this with my fly rod.. any takers call me 713-816-0884,  after I retire on 27th June...So get ready...The lights on all pylons but only a few are "ON" --When the causeway was new all the lights were "ON" an you could fish more freely...Now you have to get on you spot Sun down or go early in 1 to 2 am...and fish to Sun rise...

The best bite is on a slow out going tide...with light winds,not good on a ripping tide...and windy... Good in winter also..
 It's going to get hot soon an the fishing slow down during day.  But excellent under lights at night..  Checkout website..

 :)  I was invited out to a private pond to fly fish for bass and perch..little did I realized they're were catfish in this pond too... I started out with a 5wt fly rod and after the third break off. I went and got my 8wt. rod with a 15lbs test tippet..  Tied on another whoolley bugger an as soon as the lure sunk about a foot the line rips off again,but this time he didn't get away...Full meter was pegged...
