Outing Information Only / Re: 2015 Saltwater Outings
« on: August 26, 2014, 11:34:20 AM »
We already have three of those on our annual outing list.
 
Christmas Bay - San Luis Pass normally held in March - April Trip mostly attended by kayakers
Bolivar/Stingaree - Kayak Trip was just last month.
Brown and Root - We normally hit this location during the Redfish Rodeo and the Sunday after the Fence Lake trip.
Anahauc - a blind sight fisherman's paradise and a great place to wade. REALLY?

How about Sabine Lake (kayaks and boats), Port Mansfield (Fly and/or drive-in weekend trip), Arroyo Creek and Flats (Fly and/or drive-in weekend trip). Guided boat trips
Winter trips to Louisiana Marsh (Dec-Feb), Lower Colorado River at Matagorda (boats and kayaks)

We could delete the fresh water outing budget (since nobody really goes) and pay for airline tickets and hotels for down in the FLORIDA KEYS! YEAAAAAAA BABBBBBBY!!!!!!!!!!!

Most of the saltwater fishers like to go places where we can relax after long wades, cook a delicious meal, get a good nights sleep and do it again the next day. One day trips seem to me to not see as much participation from our members.

There are a few of us trying to put together some long distance trips to the Bahamas, Keys, Mexico, Belize, etc.

Excellent.  We will be glad to have you join us.  When you say you have a crew of four on your sign in page does that mean you are bringing three others or you have room for three others?  Have you fly fished the Rockport/Port Aransas are much in the past? Would you say you're knowledgeable for that area.

We plan on many of us staying at the Drifters Resort located between Rockport and Aransas.  Is this something you might want to do.  If so let us know if you need a partner or two for the room.  The place is nice.  Keep in touch with us through this thread.  As you will see this outing is one of our BEST! Good Food, Great People, BIG FISH.

EPIC REPORT

I can just see the majestic waves breaking over your bow as the SS DunkingMidget sets course for points unknown. Howling winds and dangerous rip currents at your gunnels, all to no avail you persisted through lonesome misery into the unknown.  Once you cleared the cape, with a loaded broadside you let loose your tantalizing entrapment into depths of the unknown. Again and again without relinquishing your steadfast courage "Strip, Strip Strip" could be heard during your charge into the unknown.  Never to fail and always to succeed, this vicious pull is met with wrenching muscles dampened by salt encrusted seaspray and championed by the unknown! Victorious and full of valor, the SS Dunking Midget shall return portside better than before heavy with quarry and all to the safety of harbor and away from the unknown!

Puck that bait jumping, well they were glass minnows and your sail craft was "pushing" the school.  If you could have stopped for a minute they would have probably schooled directly under you for the shade. Little breezy Saturday huh.  I saw Joe's post above. Where's Quigley? Did you all meet back at the marina for lunch?

Sorry I didn't have the opportunity to know your Grandfather but anyone who took the time to make sure his Grandson got to go fly fishing and be exposed to the beauty of the Green River is a good man.  This is what the spirit of fly fishing is all about. Passing it on to the next generation is a true blessing.  You are a very lucky man.  Come and join us at one of our monthly meetings and we'll see if we cant locate some of your Grand Dad's buddies. If not maybe we can introduce you to some like minded fly fishers.

Hey ALL..
I suggest the cooking teams start to make their preparations for this upcoming weekend.

Friday Night - George S. (Master Chef), Mike F. (Sous Chef)., Dave G., (side dishes) Mike G. (appetizers) Don H. (table prep), Garland S., Matt B., & Jared F. (clean-up duties) Les L. & Alex B. (bar tending)
We are planning on 20+ for dinner guys.

Friday's Menu: $$$ Donations are welcomed and encouraged. $$$

Hot steaming juicy and spicy steaks, butter-drenched trimmed out bake potatoes, hot and fresh grilled veggies, and tossed green salad with fresh sourdough bread.

Friday's pre-fishers take note...I need at least two or three fresh redfish for the grilled appetizer and the salad. Please bring them already cleaned on the half shells and chilled.

To enhance your dining pleasure I am also contributing lots of chilled "Top Shelf" Mexican Beer. Coronas, Dos X's, and Modelos, so I want to hear lots of hoot'n and hollering south of the border style. Aiyeeeee yip, yip, regresin a su pais culo!

I will also be bringing a 105 Qt. cooler to help store food items, and a 90 Qt cooler to help store beer.
I will bring my spices of choice including Slap 'yo Mama (hot), some cooking utensils, tupperware...etc. Let’s talk soon.

Dan you can put a small guy (with a huge heart) on board the "gaynew" can't you?  Maybe we could switch Gary over your way and make room for one of the other guys on another boat. Leaving one extra guy needing a boat.  What say you...

Besides I always knew you'd see reason in my past reply concerning the hunting camp vs. fishing the One Fly. So no matter what everyone else thinks ...you're a pretty smart guy! :o
