2012 and previous / Re: June Saltwater Outing
« on: June 20, 2012, 06:12:57 AM »
As previous, Ray Russ will be joining us.  So as I have it now. Ray and I on the Muy Guapo and Kelly, Mike  and Scott on Kel's boat. Anybody else who is coming must arrange their boat and accommodations.  Tide have been running high this week.  Hopefully they will decide to drop all day Saturday. Good hard falling tide could be just what the doctor ordered.  I would expect the Jetties to be HOT! 8) We will be fishing hard and probably getting up real early and fishing the ICW under the lights.

Here is a chart for the wind, tides, water and air temp, and barometric pressure.  Keep an eye on this. Click on Texas, then click on Port O'Connor. Hopefully the breeze will lessen.

Check out the wind predictions, Yeah Baby!

Outing Chat / Re: Father's Day on the Bayou
« on: June 18, 2012, 06:32:49 AM »
Well Dave I was using a #4 black bead head wooley booger.  The first strike occurred about a full two seconds after the fly hit the water while the fly was on the fall.  The second strike was different as the catfish slashed at it first, then followed the fly until I stopped it and jigged it in front of his face.  BOOM! I spoke with a guy who saw me catch the fish. He said a dude comes here sometimes during the day and feeds the fish bread at this location.  Maybe they thought it was feeding time when my fly hit the water... but I surely wasn't matching the color of bread throwing a black wooley booger.  I plan on returning in a couple of weeks and trying that spot again maybe I can catch one with the camera on movie mode!

Outing Chat / Father's Day on the Bayou
« on: June 17, 2012, 02:09:35 PM »
Went down to the Bayou this morning and fished a stretch on the golf course.  Had my slam within one hour.  I caught one of the most beautiful Chiclids I have ever seen.  I wish I had my camera phone with me then.  This fish was a dark purple and was one heck of a sightcast and catch.  10" fish at least. I really didn't photograph any of the ten or so bass I caught but you seen them before anyways.  I didn't catch any notables.  However you will see a couple of channel cats I caught.

Here is a pretty 'lil blue gill.

First one of the Morning.

Blurry but you get the picture.

The fight is one

Good Jumper too.

Here kitty kitty. Close up of Number two.

Here is the "Grip and Grin"


The two cats were both in the same hole and produced very hungry aggressive strikes too.  Had fun!

Ed, Who have you contacted about a boat ride? Maybe if you contact someone that might get them excited about going on the trip too.  Try the regulars. Send me a PM and I'll give you some contact info

OK spoke with some of the guys last night and plans are set.  Kelly is bringing his boat and is taking Quigs with him. I am taking my boat and taking Ray with me. Who ever else is coming YOU NEED TO ARRANGE YOUR BOAT AND SLEEPING ACCOMMODATIONS ASAP. We will be hitting the jetties early Saturday morning from our land bases. The weather for this coming week is forecast to be unstable due to the hurricane off the Pacific Mexican coast.  I am amazed at the little response this outing has received. Especially at how well it has gone in the recent past. Oh well. Somebody Tie up some big uglies!See ya Friday evening at the Compound!

So when does this report and pictures follow.  We are all waiting.  What was caught, by whom, who got bit, by whom, was was eaten, by whom, what was consumed, by whom, who crawled into the wrong tent early in the morning...you know the usual stuff! TALK

RUGBY IS:
1.  ANOTHER FORM OF MASS MMA.
2.  A RIOT WITHOUT COPS.
3.  BAR APPETIZER.
4.  A GOOD WAY TO RUIN THE GRASS.
5.  CONCUSSION GROUP THERAPY.
6.  HEADBANGER'S BALL.
7.  HAS NO REASON FOR INSTANT REPLAY.

Have Fun! we'll catch you another time.  Have you been to one of our meetings?  This month (last Tuesday of month) we are having Captain John Spencer up from the Arroyo Colorado to tell about fishing the LLM.

Hey Matt that could be an idea but as far as combining the two that I don't think would play out well.  First we get better attendance if we hold the Redfish Rodeo closer to home if you know what I mean.  Also the RR has been a very low expense high reward outing for years...why tack on the cost of the additional miles worth of fuel, ferry boat, and a place to stay.  In POC there are quite a few lodges that are very affordable with quick access to the water also there are quite a few of us there (POC) that can put up some of the guys who are not able to afford accommodations.  Nothing during the summer in Rockport to Port Aransas is very affordable and quick!  Just my opinion.

Well Done.  What kind of water were you fishing?  Big open ocean, the land locked lake, the river.  Give us a report with some good info please so others planning to go know what to expect.  What was the food... native or variety,  show us some flys, what kind of boats, how did you get to the lodge, hos did others do, did you fish alone or did you go with a buddy?  Fill us in. Any video?  Did you take any photos of the lodge.

Try giving us a little more lead time next time you go.  I'm sure you'll get more takers.  Are you planning to come down to POC for the Jetty Outing? Not very kayak compatible but the night fishing is ridiculous!

I do.  He mostly fished northern waters for small mouth, pike and walleye.  I remember him fishing for trout too.  He did use a shakespear flyrod but also used conventional. Gadabout probably was one of the first nationally syndicated fishing shows back in the early sixties. I remember him fishing for tarpon way back when.  Came on for awhile just before Jim Thomas - THE LONESTAR SPORTSMAN. Both of these shows were instrumental in my taking up fishing as a lifelong endeavor.  One of the earlyest color shows on TV too. Here is a link to his bio. enjoy.

Puck's site needs to be nearest the Port a Potty;D

Who's bringing the snake bite kit!
On a serious note, much of the river has a limestone bottom and you need to protect your feet and legs from abrasions when ever possible.
Has anybody looked up the flow rates.  Llano river in Llano is flowing at 69 cfs that's better than last year as I remember.

Have fun!

Thanks Ed. so ARE YOU ATTENDING EITHER OUTING? HAVE YOU SIGNED UP YET?  RAY AND I DID A LITTLE SCOUTING LAST WEEKEND AND THE TROUT WERE ONLY HAPPY TO OBLIGE. 

Here is the Muy Guapo just out of the Mechanic's shop.  Don't ask him what was wrong he does know it just started running again!

Here is Ray getting his gear together.  We had a beautiful day to start with, steady breeze out of the south but the water was skanky just about everywhere.

As the wind increased the chance of using our fly rods dimenished somewhat so we broke out the conventional stuff.
We doubled up several times and here is Ray holding two nice meals! The trout seemed to be fat but hungry and that was a good thing.


Still I had a few manageable problems with my boat but nothing we couldn't fix.   The cleaning table was busy with some Houston guys we met and spoke to.  They had a pile of fish including six flounder, four sheepshead, two reds, and a mackerel they caught out at the Jetties.... Just thought I'd drop that in for you Jetty fishers.

Outing Chat / White Oak Paddling Adventure
« on: June 07, 2012, 07:03:12 AM »
I guess it was Memorial Weekend and I called up Mike to see if he wanted to drop his new Yak into the Ponds over at the Honey Hole.  We met up at 6:30 to get a jump on the high sun conditions forecast for later in the day.  The fish wanted to cooperate and so we didn't want to miss this opportunity. 

Here are our craft during the off-loading at the pond.

This is Mike paddling back into the cattail reeds.

It was cool and we had a steady wind out of the southeast on this day.  Mike was rewarded with several bass back in the reeds.

Mike had a bass jump out of the water directly in front of him so cast Mike.

Of course I got in the action too.  Fishing out of the Float Cat made for a relaxing day.


You don't have to go far to find clear water and good bass fishing any more as it is right here in Town. Good food and cold drinks are right across the street and there is no cost to fish!  How cool.  We can only guess how many fish we caught this day but if you have been here already ...You Know!
