FYI- I plan on bringing one each of 6, 8, 10, and 12wt rigs.

I figure the 6 will be good if we get into ladyfish. The 8 is more likely a back-up. And the 10 & 12 will target jacks & tarpon (Lord willing). I'll also have a couple conventional combos in case the wind is bad. Definitely going to be loaded for bear.

General Discussion / Looking for a vintage fiberglass 10wt(or higher) rod
« on: September 11, 2013, 11:51:28 AM »
So I've just inherited a beautiful, never used Fin-Nor Tycoon #3 Anti-reverse fly reel. This is vintage 1971'ish and I'm really thinking of using it in FW for striper and in the salt as a boat rod for jacks, bonita, tarpon, etc. But I want to keep in the vintage feel and go with either a vintage graphite rod or preferably a late-60s to early-70s fiberglass rod. I've found a fair number on-line but all of them are in the lower weight classifications and this is a big game reel.

Here's some pics:

Finn,

I'm on board as well. Looking forward to the trip?

Depends on whether or not you're good company for the drive.  ;)

If I were to camp out, what's the closest camp ground?

So re-reading the gameplan as outlined by Puck I'm unsure as to when most people are planning on heading down.

Is the plan to get down there Friday evening or roll out of Houston early Saturday and just fish Saturday afternoon/Sunday morning?

I can't leave early on Friday due to Monday the 30th being the end of the quarter for me but if most people are heading down Saturday I'd be willing to roll out of Houston late at night and be able to hit the beach early Saturday morning.

Like I said, I'm flexible on time but only camping one night means I can travel lighter.

I live in Summerwood off Lake Houston.

I figure on leaving mid-afternoon on Friday but that's flexible somewhat.

As for gear, I have an open/uncovered bed. I don't plan on bringing a tremendous amount of gear though. As long as nobody brings everything & the kitchen sink I can easily handle myself, 2 riders, and gear.

How practical are kayaks here? Or is better to rock-hop?

Wow, happy coincidence I'll already be in Corpus that weekend and was planning on fishing Saturday at either LHL or the other side of the causeway in Brown & Root.

I'm in.

So sunrise tomorrow is at 7:20AM; high tide is at 3:45AM and low tide is at 11:58AM.

The plan on here calls for meeting at 8:30AM but I think, if you're up to it, it would be advantageous to meet & launch at 7'ish.

Thoughts?

I'm more concerned that we haven't put together a TFF trip to the Devil's yet.  >:(
