So what about a Bayou Bash down on the White Oak PUCK!  I hear a couple of the guys are coming over this weekend to give it a try.  We could go do it next weekend...not this Im too busy with the house but next should be good for me.  Last year we had a terrific turnout.  What is your schedule like? 8)

So bring him to our meeting! I like the idea of a kayak outing this month.  Dan could you and Mike Q put this one together for me.  I am going to head up a White Oak Bayou Bash this month. But will attend the salt outing for sure.  I'll have to borrow a yak.

Well the Texas Prison Permit Invitational was a super success. This tournament always brings out the cream of the crop. The guys who attended are all top notch fishers and love the Salt.  I want to say a special thanks to Alan K, Wendel B. and Bill W. for allowing us to stay at their places.  The guys who stayed at Bills got to catch some nice reds under the lights during the early morning hours.  Also a BIG thanks to all of the guys who brought their boats down and took out our riders.  We could have never had this outing without you guys.  Wow the Launching was awesome everything from the best of the skiffs 4 HPX’s, one Hell’s Bay, one Beavertail, and one cool Boston Whaler…thanks guys!

Dinner Friday night was fun and good grub too.  Only problem was that Dan’s Chilli Joint ran out of cornbread before we even got there which was at 7:30 PM. But their food was good. Big-ass burgers, a chilli dinner with a corndog in it, real tasty tamales and ice cold draft SHINER BACH.  WHOO-WEE!

We retired back to the East Matty compound and enjoyed some real adult beverages and cigars talking about the day to come.  Everybody was a little worried about the forecasted weather and wind conditions but none-the-less up to this point everthing was AOK!

The next morning came soon enough and conditions were rather calm with some high clouds but not anything like the forecast. I soon received phone calls from the guys coming in Saturday Am and all were present and accounted for…even Jerry Loring came in to take share in the roundup.  Puck, Sam, and Jerry all met up at the Caney Creek Marina. The rest of us met up down at the Caney Creek homeowner’s launch.  The cruise across the bay was very good without a whitecap in sight.

Fishing was not good in the morning with wind and off-colored water being the problem where we went. Wendell and I tried the north side shoreline and saw a couple but it was impossible to get a shot at them.  As the winds calmed around 10 am everything started to come together.  We poled a shoreline that was full of bait activity and several hard hits were heard (undoubtedly some big trout scarfing down their breakfast) as we poled along.

We decided to check out the other side of the bay and found several of our fishers doing their thing but at this point nobody had any “captures” yet.  Sometime after lunch it all started to come together. Wendell and I found a boat load of sheepshead over several reefs but they were playing hard to get. We later found out to be successful we should have waded the area like Alan and his brother did. They said the fish would spook off at all.  They were the most successful boat catching three and hooking up five more.  Bill caught two during his wade of the extreme south shoreline. I caught one, as did Arron, and Alan.  George caught a nice “dinner” sized flunder!

Here are some of the picture’s I shot during the am launching.  The rest of the guys will download their pic’s soon enough.

Here is Alan’s place where most of us stayed.

This is the bedlam during the morning “gear-up”

As you can see the weather isn’t that bad just a bit nippy!

This is my partner Wendell B. on his fine HPX Maverick T

This is Alan and his brother Steve on Alan HPX!

Dan has a firm hold of Sam’s Boston Whaler and that Is Jack K. getting his HPX ready at the next boat birth.


As far as who won the event we had a first for this event…well actually two firsts if you know what I mean. There were two fishers who tied! They also were the latest two fishers to join our club. (The day before and that morning)  Steve Kulkak, Alan’s older brother caught two sheepshead and so did Bill Wallace.  Now since both of these guys are East Matagorda residences you’d figure they had a slightly better chance than the rest of us but they stuck out hard conditions instead of driving around looking for fish to jump in their boats. So after a major discussion between the tournament committee I am announcing here and now that each of the Champion Fishers shall hold the trophy for 6 months each and have their names entered on the plaque for all time. However next year we will have a tie-breaker determined for just such a happening.  So CONGRATULATION FELLOWS!

See you guys at the next TFF outing...for the freshies THE WHITE OAK BAYOU BASH!

OK I WILL BE POSTING THIS INFO ON THE FRONT PAGE SO MOST EVERYBODY WILL SEE.  FIRST THE BBQ PLACE HAS CHANGED HANDS AND IS NOW A CHILLI PLACE...I'M IN FOR THAT.  SECOND THE PUBLIC BOAT RAMP IS CLOSED FOR RECONSTRUCTION OF THE ROADS LEADING TO IT. SO WE WILL HAVE TO USE THE CANEY CREEK RAMP. THANKS BILL FOR THE HEADS UP.

THE RESTAURANT IS NOW KNOWN AS JAY'S CHILLI  JOINT. YOU GOTTA LOVE THAT NAME.
BETTER HAVE SOME GOOD HOT CHILLI TOO.

NOW FOR THE HIGHLY CHALLENGED GOGGLE MAP USERS' THE CHILLI "JOINT" IS LOCATED JUST EAST OF THE FM 2611/FM 457 INTERSECTION.

HERE IS WHAT BILL HAD TO SAY ABOUT THE RAMP FROM HIS TRIP THERE LAST WEEK.

"The wife and I went to Sargent beach yesterday to see the beach reconstruction and discovered that the road to the public boat ramp on the ICW is closed due to the construction.  They are offloading sand at the barge dock and trucking it down the beach.  I am not sure if it will be open on Saturday or not.  Also the Iron Cactus has changed hands and it is now “Jay’s Chili Joint.” If the road is closed on Saturday then folks can probably launch at Caney Creek Marina on the creek."

Dave look at photos I posted under the Pre-Party Fishing the Bayou Post here in the fresh water chat section.  I was unable to reach Dig prior to leaving the house.  I'll contact him next time the fellas want to get together.  Maybe after Christmas.

My clothes are part of the success I have sewn for years.  I will be coming out with the Graham Slam Outfitters clothing line later this year...still working on the elastic expanding waist band beltless waders.  Comfortable with large zippered crotch for that ease of reach at those embarrassing moments. Currently working with TJ Max (who needs Orvis, Cabela's or Bass Pro) too so I can expect a colorful market!
