Thanks Puck!  My only question was how did Mike Q. talk that LADYFISH into biting his fly?

Sorry Guys for not making the work just didn't allow for it! :-X

I just got a call from John P. out on the water (9:30 am Sat morning) and he in the last hour has landed three slot redfish and had to hang up on me because he spotted two more coming right at him!  NICE.

He told me the guys met up at Swan Point Friday evening and watched a few videos to get their blood pumping.  Thanks to Dave Heyward and his great staff at Swan Point Outfitters.  Everybody has shown up in good order. Be safe and have a great day.  I'll catch up next time.

Thanks to Phil and Pam S. for letting our fishing "hobos" crash at their place.

Puck call Mike Q. about a place to stay. I will want to meet everyone that can be there at Swan Point around 4:00PM  But I know that is hard to do. So Take Phone Numbers from the sign in sheet with each other and lets get in contact Friday night maybe over at Phil's place in Fulton.

Weather and water should be in good condition.  Hitting the water early and taking out early too.  If you want to meet up keep in touch.  Maybe fishing in early evening too. We'll see

Dan, John, Travis, Don, Mike Q, Denis, Mike G. all of is kayaks man watch out for the high tides.

Yes that is the Marina I am talking about but it has changed names.  It is a young guy and his wife who run it now...good people too. I dibs Brown and Root.  It has miles of sand flats without a shell one and you can wade all day barefooted! Real good area for drum and sheepshead, besides my old buddy Mr. REDFISH! Are any of you going to get a room?

Let's get a caravan going. I will see if my nephew will join us.

I have fished Scully and his younger brother Elert when they were here last year filming an adventure of KT Diaries.  They can cast wind or not with ease at eighty feet.  They are very good people.  It was funny how much they loved my scooter and they thought POC was absolutely their greatest thrill to fish.  Go figure... I cant wait to go there.

Puck I thought you were fishing today out on the Llano? Did you come back early or did you not plan on staying overnight? Hope you had a blast!  I'll read your post next.

I just Googled the Causeway Bridge (Hwy 361) and I can see the Marina.  On the map it's called the Tarpon Shores Marina but I know it's not called that anymore. It is the Marina the Lydia Anne tournament is run out of. Good parking and real close to Brown & Root as well as the Lighthouse Lakes.  Ya'll get signed in soon.

I have sent out a special invitation to most of our Yakers...however if you were not invited by my email you are by this invitation...please come and join us in a great weekend of fly fishing.

I don't want to be negative but seven case of VIBRIO in the corpus area were reported by Capt'n. Billie Coechen this past weekend on the radio Fishing Show. Brown Tide is also active south of the Packery Channel.  So please be advised it is summer and you need to take precaution.  She said to bring a spray bottle of 10% bleach and when you get out of the water you spray down immediately and monitor any abrasions you might have received!

Had a great time with Mike and the guys.  Patti D. showed up with sandwiches and drinks! It was hot and humid.  Next time I'll get there earlier for sure. Patti had a bunch of follows and short strikes but nothing was brought to hand. It sure was nice having the banks cut!

Way to go Dick!  Looks like you must have been fishing late.  What fly did you use? Maybe next time we fish the White Oak Bayou here in Houston you'll join us.

7/18   Skip D.     Lodging             boat w/ MayKay                   CONFIRMED

5/31 I put out the word last night via email so let's see what happens with our boaters.

6/02  Spoke with Alex we have decided to go for the Condos.  Meaning less cost per man, gain of two boat slips, and much closer to boat ramps - Speedy Stop - at less cost.  We are checking on if there is a minimum stay period.

6/03 Klinger is in! Denis Auger will ride with Jack!

6/04 Just spoke to Marcos and he is going to see how his 'lil "cooter" is running and says he will be attending the One Fly. If his boat is healthy then he will need a fishing companion.  One who is of the adventurist type and who doesn't mind being on a 12' scooter sliding through the marshes at blinding speeds! Moooowhoooooohahahaha

Mike Q. is calling some of the boaters tonight and found out that Don H. is fishing with us and will be bringing his bay boat.  Mike will be riding with him and Don has room for one more so I'm thinking Greg C.  Don, Greg is a terrific fly tier and knows my secret fly...that he has sworn not to re-tie for anybody...ever again...never ...but just maybe he'll tie you one up for a ride!

6/05Gentleman we now have another attendee...Gary E. will be joining us and will bring his skiff too.  Gary's claim to fame is that he likes BIG FISH and is not scared to chase them either. He has room for one rider and is willing to share his boat and years of experience.

Alex has organized the Rabe House as our lodge for this outing.  It is located near the Fishing Center. Does not have boat slips available but we have plenty of parking.  It is very reasonably priced and that is what we need.  The place has a BBQ pit and outdoor deck and patio and is quite nice.  If you are supplying a boat for this outing you will get priority on a bed if you need one.  Also I would ask if you have a inflatable bed bring it just in case it is needed.  If any beds are left, we'll have a casting contest for the remainder. HAHAHAHA!

So at this early date we have enough boats for our riders.  If you want to attend and have not signed in - contact us (Mike G. or Mike Q {713-213-81 five zero}) and tell us your plans.  We will see if we can get you on a boat and if needed into a bed. This is fantastic.  We have a few other places nearby we can put people up but you better check in with Alex B. soon.  There are all kinds of rentals available.  I will expect some plans will change between now and then but for now this looks like one of the best outings in years.  John P. you might want to put together your cooking team for the dinner for Saturday night.  Also a recent receipt from Spec's Liquors will be required for admittance (you catch my drift?).  Friday night we'll all go over to Cathy's and drown in her all-you-can-eat shrimp too! WHAT??????????????

6/06Barry S. signed up last night and will need a place to stay and ride on a boat.  We'll see what we can do.  I'm quite positive that other boaters will join us soon as they have been contacted. We also can double up on some of the larger craft.  If you know somebody on the fence about coming, especially if they have a boat, well then let's see if we can get them signed up. That is the key if you do not sign up you will not get in Remember I have asked that once you sign up that you contact one of us so that we may help keep this outing organized.  Also keep checking back here for up dated status reports so you are in the KNOW!

6/10 Ray Russ signed up today. We now have expanded into a 3rd condo & have space for 3 more fishers.  Found out this evening that Greg C. has previously scheduled outing with Wounded Warriors which he committed to some time ago.  Greg we fully support anything that helps our great defenders of American Democracy.  Thanks for the heads up have a super time.  This now opens a spot in the lodge and on Don's boat. Right now that will Barry S.

6/18I have just heard from Martin W. who says he is going to fish with us and bring his big boat. Also heard from Adam M. who can now make it so I will team Mike Q. and Adam on Martin's boat.  I am not sure how long Martin is going to stay in POC so you riders need to contact him and find out if you plan on fishing on Sunday.

6/30Well here we go to the countdown. Remember by 5th of July If you do not contact me about a cancellation you will be confirmed as attending.  All meaning you will be responsible for your $hare of the outing.  PLEASE CONTACT ME IF YOU ARE NOT GOING TO ATTEND. I am getting jazzed up for this one.  I have several prototypes to test out before the outing from my fly tying friends.  Thinking George and I will hit the SABINE next week to try out these flies.  CANT WAIT!

Just heard from Barry S. who will not be able to make it for the outing. If you know of others who want to attend you might want to let them know to jump on this opening.

7/08Just got word from Don H. who unfortunately is not going to make it due to work.  So that boat is now eliminated from our fleet. Ray R. you were on that we are sliding you over to the first boat available list.  Which there is another boat available I just don't know who the Captain will be. You might be in for an adventure! ::)  Alex is working hard on coordinating the accommodations. I hope John P. has been putting is food list together and who besides George is helping prepare dinner with John?  Adam M your young and dumb and full of energy, you're in lil brother!

07/19  Skip and MaryKay D. are going to join us for this outing and they will have room for one additional fisher.  I'd like that person who ever it is to have good knowledge of POC area to help them out.  Skip has an 18' center console with plenty of power. They will be lodging with us.

07/23 All lodging and boats are full at this time!  If you want to go better make your own arrangements and we'll see you there!


Thanks to guys that have helped so far put this outing together!  Mike Q. & Alex B.
