About You / Re: Recently moved here
« on: September 15, 2014, 07:36:38 AM »
Darth may I suggest since you have some available time to fish you look back in our archives and check out White Oak Bayou. Typically you will find some really good fishing down there and it is not a far drive at all. There are a few lakes also near by the bayou if you have a kayak or float boat that can be real fun too.

As the others have said come look us up for one of our great meetings, bring the family and let us know you are there.

Hint to the wise...start shopping for your saltwater poling skiff...jus say'n! ;D ;D ;D

Yeah who wouldn't... I know the ball was started to roll sometime ago but other than some recent info from Skip I have seen nothing going on. I'll call Quigley and see if this is something he's handling.

You want to go???? From my last discussion with Skip regarding the Calcasieu Flyfishing Club was they could put together a joint trip. So I am hoping we hear more about it.

I know several of us have talked about going over later in the year (Jan-Feb) taking our own boats and doing a trip to the marsh south of NOLA for the big bulls.  But this trip could be fun too.

Bulled-up tides were already predicted for this weekend. I called CC guide friend and asked about the PINS and she said this time of year it is always a flip of the coin.  You go and fish when you can and hunker down when you have to. She said the winds on Sunday were expected to be light and from the northeast. The water by her report was still in good shape.

Hopefully next month will be better. Better chance for a shorerunning Tarpon! Maybe on Sunday after the Rodeo we can venture down and have a shot.

So tell us about the women! Anyone can catch a trout! But a Hun...well now. So why did Genghis Khan leave if the fishing was so good...was he really in search of a grill?

Looks like you had a blast. Something to treasure for the rest of your life. Great photos and report. Hopefully we can get you and Mike to give us a full tour of the trip.

Last report a month old...what is going on.  How many of them are going, for how long are they fishing, if we go where are we staying, is there anybody from our guys going? George this is your neck of the woods. I saw that Skip put the word out. If we go are we to stay at the rod and gun club on the lake?  Kinda expensive.  CFC guys putting us up? ANYONE GOING?????

Alex that's because he's watching Chita Johnson and not Listening to what she is saying.  :o  DOUGH  ;D and by waiting for tomorrow you'd have already missed fishing today!

Here is the Bob Hall Pier Report for this day:
 
FRIDAY SURF REPORT 9/12/14 9:30 AM

Surf is very small this beautiful Friday morning, wind is blowing 5-10mph and will pick up as the day moves along. Perfect day for fishing, stand up paddling, or kayaking. See attachment!

I'm betting this is going to be a beautiful weekend down on Padre. Tarpon cruising the second gut, king fish feeding on the menhaden in the first gut. ...and all of the Sargassum weed miraculously disappears.

Heck This front is so weak it will never make it down that far...it still hasn't made it here and it was supposed to by 10:00am. HA! South of Corpus NEVER.

...and who the heck woke you up Alex! First post on our website in let me see ...man my watch doesn't go back that far! You thinking of fishing sometime during the rest of the year Alex?  Huh? You going to the Redfish Rodeo...hope so.

The trip down the PINS is supposed to be an adventure..Oh well hope things are better later in the year for you adventurers...might as well shorten your gear list if your not going to use the stuff.

I find it ironic that all of these Texas guides are now fishing Louisiana especially during the winter ("Big Bull) months. Something I am sure hasn't gone unnoticed by the LA guides.  Bet the temporary license fees go up as well as guide certification costs.  Let's see how many Texas guides will take their clients over there during the off months (April - September)...er none! Even the south Texas guides are jumping on the band wagon.  Why not easier to catch a big dumb bull than a smart-ass trout!

I have already heard of a few Texas guide trucks getting "sweetened" last year at the ramps. BORDER WARS!

Dave these might be places you fished as a youth before the petrochemical business trashed most of the bay systems.  None of these place offers year round sight fishing.  I'm sure they have their good periods but access is pretty limited meaning you have to launch from quite away from the Cow Trap, Chocolate Bay, Bastrop Bay, Lost Lake, Cedar Lakes. If your using a kayak you can be talking a ten mile paddle one way...too far! The bays off the San Jacinto -Ship Channel, though they have fish are still highly polluted and not real safe for a yaker. I'm bettn' you and your daddy used that 3 hp 'rude and the flat bottom to get to these places off dirt roads that have long disappeared!

Mike and Jared Frankoff and I fished the St Charles Bay complex last year during the Redfish Rodeo.  NO SIGHTFISHING TO BE HAD! You can get a boat into Mission Bay without getting stuck in the mud.

Man somebody has to get Dave on the water down in POC just so he can see what we are talking about!

We already have three of those on our annual outing list.
 
Christmas Bay - San Luis Pass normally held in March - April Trip mostly attended by kayakers
Bolivar/Stingaree - Kayak Trip was just last month.
Brown and Root - We normally hit this location during the Redfish Rodeo and the Sunday after the Fence Lake trip.
Anahauc - a blind sight fisherman's paradise and a great place to wade. REALLY?

How about Sabine Lake (kayaks and boats), Port Mansfield (Fly and/or drive-in weekend trip), Arroyo Creek and Flats (Fly and/or drive-in weekend trip). Guided boat trips
Winter trips to Louisiana Marsh (Dec-Feb), Lower Colorado River at Matagorda (boats and kayaks)

We could delete the fresh water outing budget (since nobody really goes) and pay for airline tickets and hotels for down in the FLORIDA KEYS! YEAAAAAAA BABBBBBBY!!!!!!!!!!!

Most of the saltwater fishers like to go places where we can relax after long wades, cook a delicious meal, get a good nights sleep and do it again the next day. One day trips seem to me to not see as much participation from our members.

There are a few of us trying to put together some long distance trips to the Bahamas, Keys, Mexico, Belize, etc.
