General Discussion / Re: Tip leader for Trout,Redsand Flounder.
« on: September 27, 2013, 06:23:59 AM »
Some people, no names here, suggest using straight 20 lb hard Mason mono.

I use a tapered mono down to 12 lb, and sometimes add an 8 lb tippet to it.

Don't use furled leaders in the salt.  They act like a rubber band, making a hook set almost impossible.  My 2 cents.

Puck- I was told to confirm that I'm joining this trip (for food purposes). I assume there's one community meal, and then everyone fends for themselves for the rest of the trip. This true?

Correct. And good question.

Phone number for PINS conditions/recording

Joe

Driving conditions today are "fair." 

The weather forecast is 40-50% chance of rain.  Rainy weather is fishable.  If lightning shows up, I will stay in the truck and read a book until it passes.

We have a schedule cleanup for Saturday.  They could be an obstacle for getting downrange.  That being said, I think would should camp between the 10 and 15 mile marker Friday night.  I can send a message from "Finder" to those of us that are trailing, showing exactly where we will be set up.

My part of the "convoy" will head to CC about 2013-09-27-0900.

I'll mention this again at the meeting tonight.

We will have some chalenges in front of us this weekend.  I'll keep checking.

•   Very poor beach driving conditions
The beach is reopened to driving as of Wednesday, Sept. 18th. However, a new storm is developing in the western Gulf. This may elevate tides in South Texas, and create large swells that could produce rip currents. Another park beach closure may occur.

Orvis / Thursday night at Orvis, 2013-09-19
« on: September 20, 2013, 09:55:52 AM »
I got there a little early and started tying 5 minute redfish cracks.  We had a total of about 20 people show up.  I didn't take pictures, but I did see cameras out.

The casting games were a hit.  Since the gang had to stay inside we had the additional challenge of indoor obstacles.  I don't know who actually won, but there were a lot of good natured cheering, and jesting, as the game progressed.  Some of our beginers made some of the best casts, since they didn't have the bad habits to "unlearn."

Presenters of the evening were from an Orvis endorsed fishing lodge in the Bahamas.  I'll get the website for those guys when I get a few more minutes.  They were part of the group from the first moment. Only later did we learn that these were the presenters that evening.

They both are extremely enthused about the fishing, and were great at answering Golden's questions.

More later.

How about every one bring a trash bag or two so we could do a little beach clean up when we are down there.

Bear 8)

Good plan.  I'll bring a roll of yard bags, and pass them out at the meet-up.

There is now an improved dirt road all the way to the river.  We will be able to get 4WDs all the way to the water to launch.

Generation Canal of Toledo Bend

I'll be there about 2013-09-21-0700 with coffee brewing

Somebody bring breakfast?

Here's my vote...



1.  1200 or 1300 at Malaquite then move downrange.
