Fence Lake is 160 miles and a 40.00 boat ride away.  The Bolivar Cut is 60 miles and FREE! Little if any choice here!  Plus you can fish the front beach for gator trout, the jetty for toothy critters and you're not stuck out on the island waiting for a ride back to land especially if bad weather moves in like two years ago. Good idea, Mikey!

Sounds like fun and there is plenty of beach front to check pout too.  I'll see if I can get a Kayak lined up.  Also the week before Labor Day so all should be rather quiet.

Outing Chat / Last Guest Speaker

I saw that someone had set up a video cam at the last meeting.  Did someone video the guest speaker.  I was unable to stay due to work but would enjoy see the video if one exists.  Marcos said the guy was full of good info especially about the Galveston area.  Let me know or post something up please.

I too have heard a lot of good things about the fishing down there, the hotel and the local guides are very proficient. Another item for my ever expanding "Bucket List".  Thanks for the great report, please post up some more pics when you have the time.

        Andrew P. (not confirmed) - Staying at John's RV

Fishers with boats:
John C.  opening for one (maybe fishing with Shelby - I need to confirm)  I do not know their accommodations

We might need some more people with boats.

Fishers Listed on the sign in sheet
Travis R.  May fish with John C (if Shelby isn't fishing) I do not know his accommodation needs yet.

Please visit this site at least in morning and night to see if there is any change in the outing status.

NOTE: I am hoping all of this rain will flush out the back lakes and the brown shrimp. Fishing could be incredible in a few weeks.

Good Job Chris.  How did Jim whip a sizable tarpon in fifteen minutes? Man that's quick.  Healthy red there too.

You must have been there after the rain. I was there until around 11:00am.  That boat is the bomb isn't it.  Dont know how it got there and it has been moved several times. (What a chore) The fish I caught were cookiecutters but I expect them to grow with a little with our help.  We need to stock some bluegill fry in the ponds. That would help out.  Call me next time you go.

Outing Chat / Re: White Oak...the sequel
« on: July 08, 2012, 03:10:40 PM »
Went back today and found several players.

Here is my first using a MP given to me by Harry C.

Another just two casts later.

The weather started to move in so I left before too long.

I fished everything you see here. The island in the middle didn't offer up one fish??? The shoreline on right was loaded. The reeds to far left had a few biggies back there.

I'll be fishing salt next week so You can have this place for yourselves!!!!!

Well I guess we had fun if catching fifty or so fish each is fun!  Nice to see Mike and Scott hammering the bass.  The hot set up remains a bead head wooley bugger.  I tried the Miss Prissy but I guess due to the high sun and blue skies the bass were not having anything to do with it.  Had to go deeper.  I used my ultralight set up too and it paid off big time.  Crawfish colored shallow diving crank bait seemed to be the ticket.  I know it's not fly fishing but nothing is wrong with using a buggywhip ultralight spinning rod and 1/8th oz. lures.  It was a hoot.  Probably caught just as many with the fly rod than with the ultralight.  But the secret is out, I caught lots of fish.

Here is a good look at the crankbait I used.  Which by the way I found back in the reeds in the backround.

This guy fell victim to the bead head fly.

Say Aaahhhh! This shot is for a certain Dentist in our club!

Costa del Mar has come out with a new line of SUN FISH?

They say good things come in small packages! This lil "Warmouth" seems comfortable in his!
