Outing Chat / East Matty Trip
« on: August 30, 2013, 06:00:20 PM »
Took a solo kayak trip to East Matagorda this morning. First time I've been down to the west end since they took out the draw bridge. Also had to find a new launch. Got a work out on the paddle to the south shoreline. Lots of bait moving but the water was muddy.

Manged a dink red on a nice shrimp fly that I got from Frank B at the expo. Caught on street legal trout on a Borski craft fur shrimp that I tied.

Figured out that I need a GPS. Tried to leave through the wrong cove. Luckily I saved a few point along the way as contacts in my phone.

Off the water before the rain started. Good day but I need to find  better entry/exit to east Matty.

Ending the day listening to Steely Dan play at the woodlands.

Talked to Golden. Looks like we will be leaving the "Lil Cujo" at home.  Would have to change its name to CB (Coyote Bait) if he went to PINS with us.

Cliff's - the slotted foam is great.  The Beast and Beast Jr are do a good job holding your "beach sized" flies and not squishing them flat. Cliff's also has a large waterproof box (the Justin Case).

I have never seen "Bug Luggage" before. They look great for small stuff.  BugLug website makes it sound like their larger boxes are not that tall.  I suspect they would cause problems with your PINS flies.

I would buy a box of each brand and figure out what works for you.  You can give me whichever one you don't want.

Mark Marmon was guiding the local bayous in search of braes bonefish (carp).  He has also talked to the club a couple of times about it and other urban angling adventures.  One of the flies he had was a coffee bean glued to a small hook.  Looked like an overgrown lady bug.  Always thought that would be fun to do and have not gotten around to it.

Call Mark up and talk to him about it.  Here is his website:

Sign me up for lodging.

I got there at halftime (lunch).  Things seemed to be slow.  Great BBQ and discussions.  One discussion was around what happens when you put a rod on a car and drive off.  I ended that conversation saying "I haven't done that yet."   You can probably see where this is going.

Spent the afternoon being teased by bass examining whatever fly I threw out there and then moving away.  Finally tricked one bluegill into hitting the fly.

Heard a lot of Puck's "Fish on!"  Asked him what the secret was and tried it out.  Third cast I got a hit and broke off.  As a final salute the fish jumped clear out of the water taking my fly with him.

Headed on home and unpacked then a good dinner with my oldest son who was home for the weekend.

This morning the kids and I were headed out for church and noticed that someone left a nice fly rod in front of my house in the  cul-de-sac.  I then remembered putting it on top of my son's car while I was unloading my car.  Later that night, he drove off not noticing it was there.  When he came home (whatever time that was) he pulled past the driveway and backed in, probably running it over.

The rod looked a little scuffed up but none the worse for wear.  Only took a few casts for it to fall apart.

Now I get to try out the TFO warranty.

There are probably lots of "morals to this story".  For instance, if you haven't left a rod on top of your car and driven off, don't talk about it or it might happen to you that same day!!!  Another one is if you see a fly rod in the road in front of your house and wonder what idiot put it there, it was probably you.  I am sure there are more.

Still had fun, caught a fish and enjoyed talking to some good friends. Always good to get out.

Oh yeah, another good moral to the story is TFO's $25 no fault warranty is a winner.

I went to this last year and the movies were great.  Probably going again this year to see the new set of films.

Get your ticket and go!

Thanks again to Alan, Bill and Wendell for putting the group up for the night and the guys with the boats to haul the rest of us around. Thanks to George for hauling me around in his skiff. Big thanks to Mike for doing all the organizing and cat herding to make this thing happen.

It was a tough day fishing but a great day to get out and wet a line. 

For the third year in a row the winner was in Alan K's boat. Wonder what that means.

My wife has been looking forward to somebody else winning the trophy ever since it showed up at our house last year. She doesn't appreciate "reel" art.  I'll post a photo of it later.

Looking forward to some fishing and catching.  Here is a photo of trout Matt mentioned earlier in this post.  Despite all the crap in the net, I did not catch him in a tree or scoop him off the bottom.   He successfully avoided all the nymphs I floated past him.  Got tired of it and brought out the olive woolyB.  First cast after that.

 I agree with bringing snacks and going out.

See yall there.
