WELL SO FAR THE RAIN HAS BEEN FALLING STEADY BUT NOT TORRENTIAL, WHICH IS A GOOD THING.  THIS RUNOFF SHOULD ONLY TAKE ABOUT THREE TO FOUR DAYS TO CLEAR UP. LETS HOPE WE DON'T GET ANOTHER SOAKER BEFORE NEXT WEEK! DOES ANYBODY KNOW IF WE CAN CONTACT ALEX IN IRELAND NEXT WEEK WHILE HE'S PUB JUMP'N?  COULD BE THE CONVERSATION OF THE YEAR! WITH THIS RAIN THE WEEDS WILL REALLY BE A PROBLEM, IF YOU ARE SMART BRING A LAWN MOWER OR A WEED EATER. I'LL CHECK TO SEE IF THE SUPERFUND GUYS HAVE CLEARED THE DITCH TOO.

Here is a good link to monitor the White Oak Bayou save in your favs - nice to have.  The gauge is at the bridge at Alabonson just north of West Little York.

Thanks for being so patient.  The weather is what it is.  I do not want our fishers out on East Matty in bad conditions.  There is no where to run for safety except 15 miles against the weather.  It is too bad that sheepshead become catchable at this time of year.  The Outing will be switched to the weekend of the 24th.  Most everybody can attend.  If you can not which I haave heard from a few please let me know.  Especially the guys furnishing boats.  I'll get the new info reposted next week.  If you are reading this and you now want to attend because of the date switch, be sure to go out and buy a new boat!  Nah...just let me know OK...ok.

YOU HAVE NOW BEEN NOTIFIED...DONT SHOW UP SAT LOOKING FOR FRIENDLIES WE'LL ALL BE IN BED!

WE'LL BE OK IF PUCK DECIDES TO JOIN US!

Outing Chat / March Madness Begins - THE SPAWN IS ON!
« on: March 04, 2012, 05:36:46 PM »
THOUGHT I WOULD VISIT THE BAYOU TODAY SINCE I'M FULL OF THE FISHING SHOW AND THE THOUGHT OF CATCHING BIG FISH.  TODAY IT IS JUST BEAUTIFUL OUTSIDE AND BY LUNCH TIME THE AIR TEMP WAS 70 DEGRESS AND RISING. BET THE WATER TEMP WASN'T FAR BEHIND EITHER!.  GRABBED THE CAMERA, FLYROD AND A FEW FLYS AND HIT THE ROAD.  HERE IS WHAT I FOUND.

AS WE ARE GETTING READY FOR OUR ST. PATTY'S DAY BASS BASH. I STILL WANT TO WARN YOU, ALTHOUGH WE DON'T HAVE STING RAYS TO BE BOTHERED WITH, WE HAVE THESE GUYS.

AS THE BANKS OF THE WHITE OAK BAYOU ARE OVERGROWN NOW WE NEED TO BE CAREFULL BUT KEEP YOUR EYES OPEN AS YOU CAN SEE THE FISH LAYING UP READY TO SPAWN.  HERE IS ONE RIGHT HERE.

THIS IS WHAT SHE LOOKED LIKE UP CLOSE.

JUST ABOUT TEN FEET AWAY FROM THE LAST FISH THIS GUY WAS JUST SITTING THERE AND BIT ON THE FIRST PRESENTATION.

SO I LOOKED AROUND TO SEE WHY THESE TWO LITTLE BUCKS WERE SO TIGHT TO THE BANK AND CLOSE TOGETHER AND HERE IS WHAT I FOUND.  THIS FISH WAS A SOLID THREE POUNDS! SAAWHEAT BABY.

GOT INTO THE TRUCK AND MOTORED TO ANOTHER SITE AND MAN O MAN HERE WE GO AGAIN.  I SPOTTED THIS BIG FEMALE CRUISING THE BANKS REAL CLOSE TO WHERE I WAS STANDING ALMOST TOO CLOSE. ANYWAYS I MADE SHOT AFTER SHOT AT THIS FISH, ONCE TO HER LEFT THEN TO HER RIGHT... RIGHT OVER HER THEN RIGHT NEXT TO HER. SHE ATE THREE TIMES BUT I JUST COULDN'T STICK HER, SHE WAS TOO FAST...WAIT SHE ATE TROUT SET AND SHE'S ON AFTER SEVERAL HUGE JUMPS AND WATCHING HER BURROW DOWN IN THE ROCKS I WAS ABLE TO WHIP HERE ARSE AND BRING HER HOME!  NICE FISH CLOSE TO FIVE OR MORE POUNDS. MAYBE THE LARGEST FROM THE BAYOU SINCE I STARTED FISHING IT BACK IN NOVEMBER.

LOOK AT HER TAIL...THE SPAWN IS ON. NOW THE FISH WILL NOT BE AGGRESSIVE BUT YOU NOW ARE GOING TO HAVE TO FINESS THE BIG ONES TO BITE.

GOOD LUCK! HERE IS ANOTHER ONE IT TOOK SEVERAL CAST TO GET TO EAT BUT EAT SHE DID.


I WOULDN'T GUESS IT WOULD TAKE MANY MORE PHOTOGRAPHS TO CONVINCE YOU TO JOIN US FOR THE SAINT PATRICKS' BAYOU BASS BASH ON THE WHITE OAK.  WE HAVE A GOOD GROUP STARTING TO FORM AND WE HAVE TWO WEEKS TO FIRM UP THE OUTING.  I THINK WE'LL HAVE A HOOT OF A TIME.

Just recieved a PM from Jack K. who will NOT be attending the March Outing.  That means we just lost a boat.

So being fair as I can be, Don Puckett has been moved to Bill Wallace's Boat and Steve Vigil has been bumped as he has not firmly committed to fish even at this date...sorry Steve :'( maybe if another boat or spot becomes available. You're first on the list (after you sign in) to be placed on a boat!

Either that or have Klinger give you the Keys to his HPX!!!!!!!!!!  After all Jack was listed as a committed fisher!

THIS IS OLD INFO. GO TO THREAD ABOVE TO SEE UP DATES!

369
Jim I will see what I can do.  Please look for further responses regarding this trip in the Saltwater outing information only section herein.  If John Purcell is bringing his boat (he and I discussed this yesterday) there might be some additional room. I'll let you know.

If you are coming down friday night and need accomodations here is what I know.
Alan is allowing us again to use his place in Sargent for those wanting to stay Friday Night  He has room for about 8 comfortably. He also has several roll aways and foutons and I personnally know of five staying there now.  AK, SB, JC, SL, JP.

Wendel's place has room for three and those are filled at this time. However, one of those is
a non-comfirmed full size fouton!

Thursday I tried to contact another fisher who has a residence in Sargent and to see if there are any openings.  I know some of you are coming down sat am with RR. But I need a hard count if anybody needs a place to stay.  I heared from MQ, AM, AH, DP and JK so far.  Some of you may want to bring inflatable beds or whatever since three of you are so tall you have roots instead of feet!!!!!!!.

Next up-date by Friday PM I'll be going to the show on sat. if you'd like to join me.

Fri. 7:21 PM - Joe French is joining our outing and is bringing his 180' shallowsport.  Can I hear a Halalulla Brother! (See his thread below)  He will have space for two guys for wading.  As of yet Steve V. has not signed in for comformation. Handled! Dr. Joe will fill you in on how many he'll put on his boat (Puck you're onboard).    Also Jim Richards is joining us and will be staying Friday night, He is bringing an inflatable bed. Jim you may or may not need it but go ahead and bring it just in case!

NOTE: ALL UPDATED INFORMATION PRINTED IN PURPLE


Monday Evening - I have looked ahead and the weather for this coming weekend is the pits! 40% Thursday, 60 % both Friday and Saturday...this is not good.  I will suggest, if we need to reschedule to move the outing to the 24th of March.  I have not spoken to any of the East Matty home boys  Alan, Wendel and Bill but it looks like we better have an alternate plan. Look back here for important updates.

All are welcome! Remember to sign up in the top thread so we have a good idea who is coming.  I will get a hold of Dave K., Nigel and George S. as well as others I think would like to attend.

Now for those that want to be successful...look back at some of my previous Bayou fishing trecks and look cafefully at the flys that I used.  Nigel tied up some real doozies that worked well. 

Hunter gave me a fly that scored three fish over 3.0 lbs.!


Mike Arnold tied this one up from chartruse/yellow/marine blue craft fur, clouser style with big black beadhead eyes.


There are two other flys that were money too.
This one was probably the best hands down.

Next fish Note same fly.

Believe it or not another fish on same fly note where fly is position in fishes mouth.

Here's the next fish from the same hole.  This place was loaded.

Here is a (too) closeup of the fly.  not a good picture but you can see it good in other picts.

Hard to see but you get the picture.

Mind you these aren't small flys.  Mike Arnolds clouser minnows are #4 hooks and they work well.


The long reddish-orange fly at the very bottom was killer!  Well I hope this helps and of course ...and as always tie one of each the above and submit to the committee for field evaluation testing.  Results will be published herin and Stars shall be born!

Sounds good to me.  A good meeting point is the Citgo Filling Station on the corner of Hollister and West Little York. Let's say around 9:00 am Saturday March 17th.  If you missed us go down hollister (now called Fairbanks White Oak dr) around left hand turn to Woodland Oaks Dr.  Turn right and follow to Shady Grove Dr., turn right go to last street (Loren Dr.) and turn left to cul de sac...park and proceed down into the Bayou you'll know what to do once there!

Bring cooler full of beer, sandwiches, chips or what ever.  there is also a chance we will be hitting the Sonic for lunch too. so we can discuss that as we get nearer to our outing. 

Bass should be plentyfull.  If we have a hard rain during the preceeding week we'll need at least four days for the Bayou to clear out. Keep in touch.  We'll make this a fun time for sure and it is close to home (WOOHOO).  See you there.

Outing Chat / Re: BARNACLE BANDIT BLOWOUT BENIFIT TOURNEY - POC TX.
« on: February 27, 2012, 11:07:26 AM »
BEAR the tourney came off without a hitch.  Yes it was misserable for most of the day but all in all fish were caught by everybody and the tourney had 77 fishers.  Money was raised and everybody had a great time.  Mike Drone and I had a slam by 1030 am!

On sunday I caught two sheepsheads and a red using a fly Jerry Loring tied at the fly tying fest.  The weather sunday was beautiful.

No photos were taken during this trip by Mike or I but maybe others took some.  John Purcell, Adam Muir, Jack Klinger, Eduardo Davis, and I attended.  We (Mike and I) weighed in one trout 15.5", one flounder 21" and one drum18.5 the most fish in the fly division. One sheepshead was caught in the fly division but it was caught on a boat where the team was chunking bait and chum and the flyrod was used once the fish went on the feeding frenzy! We would never allow that ...but they did!
