So... the early starters didn't leave quit so early. In fact, one of them slept in.

I arrived at the boat launch at about 6:30. I called my buddy Caleb. My phone call turned out to be his alarm clock. He lives up in Conroe, so we both decided that he may as well roll back over in bed & chalk this up as a loss. Besides, the rest of the TFF guys were coming, so I could just wait for them. However, hindsight says I should have just gone home and went to bed too.

My SUP is far from being in good condition, and I'm uncoordinated and shaky in waves greater than 2 inches, so I decided to avoid crossing the ship channel. In the morning, I cruised around the shallows just northeast of the boat dock, but to no avail. I just caught me some shucked oyster shells.

The mud was pissing me off, so I decided to cross the ship channel to get to the rocky, sandy island. Once on the far side, I intermittently saw some exploding bait balls. A nice red & white seaducer enticed a beast, but sadly I snapped off immediately after setting the hook -- maybe I just got too damn excited when I tugged the line. I didn't see the fish, but... of course... it felt massive.

In total, I caught 2 fish. The total length of those fish equaled 4 inches... I skewered two unlucky baitfish while stripping through their schools.

Better luck next time

Oi, Caleb H. will be joining the excursion. He & I are meeting at the put-in at 6 & want to be on the water before sunrise. I'm sure we'll see you guys out there! And we'll definitely grab a bite to eat afterwards. I just wanted to let you know, so you won't be waiting for us

I'm pumped for this skirmish. Is everyone just making a day-trip outta' this experience?

Oh, how I love the hammock story....!!!

Count me in for another grand experience / epic adventure / naughty word show. I'm down for whatever happens!!

I'm considering driving my 4Runner, and so I'll have 1 or 2 open seats for vaga bonds (depending on how much naughty word I feel I've gotta tote along). I'll keep you posted

You poor bastard. Why don't you just come down and hang out at the lodge all day instead of hanging sconces and curtains?

6
Heyyo, as of now (provided who's going) what's the damage$$ gonna be for the lodges?

I love Joe's fishing report. What pattern did he catch them with?

When is everybody leaving? I'm interested in leaving Friday, noon-ish. Anybody interested in splitting gas? I live in the Energy Corridor.

Puck- count me in for talking on Jan 31st. I can't yet commit to the other dates, but I'm interested!

So, what's the agenda? On January 1st, do we give a talk 3 different times, for 3 different classes in Periods 1, 2, & 3? Or are we speaking to one class, 3 different times throughout the next few months?

Whatever the hell happens, it should be fun. Just keep me posted.

Ciao!

Yo! Count me in. And please save me a spot on the floor of the cabin where I can throw my sleeping bag. Deal?

Also, the cost for the Rio Raft access fee-- is this per vehicle, or angler? And how much? About ~$10 or so?

Heyyo,  you say you're from Colorado? Which part? I moved down 6 months ago. Now where are you living?

Feel free to message me. Maybe we can watch the football game on December 22nd, when the Broncos are going to whoop the Texans.

It may be too late for this weekend's trip, but I want to help out with how we organize carpooling. We're going to see how this pans out...

Below is a link to a Common Document. Anybody who goes to the below website can view (and edit) an Excel spreadsheet. I created this spreadsheet so people attending the Redfish Rodeo can see who else is driving down there. Add your name to the list and fill out all of the appropriate information. And since the date is approaching rapidly... ENTER YOUR PHONE NUMBER. I'll take ownership of organizing anybody who fills out their information on this sheet.

Dunkin,

I'm at 99/Westheimer pkwy. Let's plan on traveling together. I'm thinking about taking a half day, driving down in the afternoon.

Bob


Bob- I sent you an e-mail. In case you didn't get it, I'll repeat here:

I can be at your house by noon / 12:30. I wanted to ask if you'd be able to drive, because I don't know when you want to return to Houston. Some guys are staying down there to fish on Sunday, so if you want to leave early Sunday morning (or even Saturday night, or whenever), then I can grab a ride back with the folks I'll be fishing with. However, if you want to fish Sunday too, then I'll have no issue driving us down there!

Feel free to call me at:  seven13-eight5seven-eight9O2
