Outing Chat / Re: ABC Tourament in POC

ABC means what Don?   

Against Baitfisher's using Croakers!


You're going on TIME OUT!

:o(

I was just down last week and waded near the small jetties didn't see much trash at all.  However that cant be said for just outside the east small jetty where there is a two mile stretch that still has debris from IKE!  If you want to pick up some junk I suggest you go there. Make sure you focus on the plastic junk first. It is everywhere and wont go away for oh let's say 10,000 years.  The club will provide some large contractor bags for each boat to fill. I will research where we can dump the collected crapola!

I suggest we team up with our tourney fishing partners and start the clean up around 10:00 am so we can hit the hot fishing spots early in the am. Maybe we can offer a team prize for the most collected junk??? 

Who is bringing their boats? DON H.- GEORGE S.- JOHN P. - Let's get signed up! We are talking next month folks. You boat guys call your fishing buddies and get your crew set. The "One Fly" is not a place you want to be looking for a boat or a partner. 

Mike have you notified the other FF clubs Alamo, Austin, Hill Country, Rockport, Montgomery...etc?

Travis, Mike and others...unless you've previously signed up you might not get the skinny on what has been decided. Best to call the new trip leader (MQ). I've gone over the list and I'm not sure who has confirmed and who has dropped. Not much chatter going on here. I suggest you look at the sign up sheet and get the phone numbers of folks you know and see if they are indeed going, who is sharing rides, who is staying where, where folks are meeting up, and food arrangements.  I know there was at least one guy who just got his hall pass and is wanting to attend (Dave) but is trying to search out partners, kayaks etc. Good Luck to all...this is usually one of the top Saltwater outings of the summer and the buzz was high a couple of months ago.

Call me if I can help I will.

Hey this is what we have been waiting for! The Bayou has been cut.  You can have easy access right now.  Fishing is off the wall. Make sure you let others know. That is all  :o

Spend some time and look around our site.  Read some back postings on the trips we do each year and see what interests you.  We just had a wonderful outing to Port O'Connor to fish the jetties.  We had a blast.  Also we have numerous tying events all leading up to our fly tying festival each February. We teach fly tying, rod building, cast instructions, have approximately 24 scheduled outings per year, and much much more.  Welcome to our group.

Saltwater is my favorite and it quickly cir-planted my freshwater fishing.

FINN
ONE PLACE I WAS TALKING ABOUT IS A FRIENDS HOME THAT IF THEY ARE DOWN THAT WEEKEND I CAN USE A BED THERE. NOT BIG ENOUGH FOR A WHOLE GROUP. THE ONE HOUSE THAT IS BIG IS OUT ON THE PADRE ISLAND AND WOULD REQUIRE A FERRY BOAT TRIP (ON WEEKENDS - ARGH!) VERY EARLY IN THE AM AND A TWENTY MILE TRIP TO CATCH THE SKIMMER. NOT VERY EFFICIENT.  IF I STAY WITH THESE FOLKS I WILL NOT BE FISHING FENCE LAKE. MORE LIKE SHAMROCK COVE. SORRY I DIDN'T MAKE THAT CLEAR.

Thanks for the great report Ralph.  Did you take any photos? Did you find any deep holes worth investigating? Bigger fish usually hang out there. How was the river flow? did you have to paddle much? How much was the cost of the livery service, and canoe? Club members will want to know.

LOOKS LIKE DAN IS HANDLING SOME OF THAT. SCOTT ARE YOU OVER AT PHIL'S. I MIGHT STAY THERE TOO IF THERE IS STILL ROOM. HOWEVER I HAVE ANOTHER PLACE TO STAY OUT ON THE ISLAND TOO. SCOTT ARE YOU FISHING FROM YOUR BOAT OR YAK?  I NEED TO SEE IF A SKIFF (GEORGE S.) IS GOING TO BE AVAILABLE. I WILL LET YOU KNOW SOON. I'D REALLY LIKE TO BE FISHING THE BIG WATER OUT BY THE JETTIES IF POSSIBLE. I'M SURE THE TARPON WILL BE THERE BY THEN.

SCOTT ARE YOU STAYING OUT ON THE ISLAND?  IF SO WE'LL MAKE SURE THERE ARE A FEW OTHERS OUT THERE WITH YOU.  WE NEED TO MAKE SURE THERE IS A BOAT OUT ON THE ISLAND IF THERE ARE PEOPLE STAYING OUT THERE. JUST IN CASE OF EMERGENCIES. 

JOHN P. SAYS HE WANTS TO HIT THE DEEP BLUE WATER WITH YOU BEFORE SUN UP. KINGS AND LINGS BABY! CAN'T YOU HEAR THE DINNER BELL RINGING????

I WILL BE GOING TO POC AND ARANSAS PASS THIS NEXT WEEKEND. I WILL MAKE SURE THE WAHOO IS IN GOOD SHAPE IF WE NEED HER. ALSO GOING DOWN TO PICK UP THE MUY GUAPO! IT'S TIME FOR HER FACE LIFT.

THANKS DAVE IT DOESN'T LOOK GOOD OUT WEST DOES IT. ANOTHER FEW WEEKS OF THIS AND THERE WONT BE ANY REASON TO GO OUT TO THE LLANO UNLESS YOUR LOOKING FOR ARROWHEADS. IT IS LOWER NOW THAN IT WAS THIS TIME LAST YEAR. WHERE ARE THOSE DARN ROJO RENEGADES (since we can't call them redskins) AND THEIR RAINDANCEs...SURE COULD USE SOME RAIN OUT THERE 'BOUT NOW.

Check out 2 cool report on April 28, Yahoo says water above SH 87 is stained and non-productive almost like it was dead?  Water levels already low up that way too. What is going on. Has anybody checked the river flow rates yet.

Here is some recent news as of today.  Does not sound good.
http://www.llanonews.com/news/43053/

...and keep this on your 'puter it tells all

http://waterdata.usgs.gov/usa/nwis/uv?site_no=08151500

What is the plan if flows are worse than they are now?  What was the flow last year does anybody know?
With another month of drought I'd think we need a plan "B"! Might be the reason few are signing up.

What about the Colorado below Austin...looked like it's very productive, good accommodations near by probably could get a shuttle service pretty easy.  Ray R. has been hammering the fish down there too.  I don't know if I am even able to go yet due to my present work schedule. Plus my work partner (SIL) and family are all headed to Hawaii that week! Just an idea if things fall apart on the Llano.
