I'm with George on this one.  River side lodge if afordable, George find us some good rates and let us know ASAP for Friday and Saturday nites. Maybe some rooms at the I-35 corridor are more reasonably priced, Either way I'm in!

So far we have but we need more!

Matt B.

There are plenty of trout fishers in our club...where are they now? So far we have all Saltwater guys where are the "freshies".

I spoke with Denis A.  He would like to come but can't confirm this early due to work concerns.
What about Steve V.earlier he said he was busy this time of year but just maybe? 
Harry C. said he wanted to come and so did Adam M.,  Alex Balcque loves these little creatures.
What about Dave L. he travels all the way to NM to fish for smaller fish than the Guad has!
Jerry Loring lives three miles from the river!
Who's calling these people? We need some activity here. Don't make me GO POSTAL! :o >:( :o

Outing Chat / ANOTHER PREFRONT BONANZA
« on: January 08, 2012, 03:40:11 PM »
It seems every Sunday, there is another front on it's way into HTown and they make our Bayou "Green Trout" FRISKY just before it starts to rain!  To say the least today they were feeling frisky for sure!  However, today I was on a mission of another sort.  The Wormdrowner and I had noticed a fresh bicycle reef in one of the deeper holes while fishing last week and I thought I would return to remove it today.  I have several of my workers who cant afford bikes for their children and this one looked like with a little effort it could be returned to use. So while I  was removing the bike with a home made grappling rig I noticed a large bass on the far shore crusing back and forth like she was bedded up between some rocks. I knew I had my conventional rod and some plugs in the back seat of the truck so after pulling out the bike I returned to the truck for my bass rig. Yes I asked three neighbors out in their yards near where I parked if they knew who's bike this was but nobody seemed to know,so...

Here's the bike.

So armed with a 1/4oz flashy Model A I went back to find the bass and here is her partner.  Doesn't the buck always get there first!

So I'm thinking she has to be near so I'll wait a few seconds and try that spot again. BOOM Who Let The Dog Out!

After quite a tussle I landed her and she was a brute approaching FOUR pounds!

Here she is next to my size nine shoe.  NICE FISH FOR IN THIS BAYOU!

I moved down stream a little and saw another spot where a bed might be. 2 casts later.

Last fish of the day as the rain was starting to come down and I have a cold already don't need to get any sicker so I split.


Iknew these big fish were in here but they just haven't been hungry before when I was after them.  Today was a banner day for the bayou.  Fishing time 1 hr fifteen minutes.  Bye Now.

MIKE AND I MET DOWN AT THE CITCO ON LITTLE YORK AND VENTURED OVER TO THE WHITE OAK TO SEE WHAT WAS HAPPENING.  YESTERDAY I TRIED AN AREA OF THE BAYOU CLOSER TO HOME BUT NOT MUCH WAS HAPPENING THERE PLUS IT APPEARED THAT SOMEONE ELSE WALKED THE BANK PROBABLY FISHING 'CAUSE I COULDN'T FIND A DECENT FISH WHERE THERE IS USUALLY PLENTY OF ACTION. SO WE TRIED UPSTREAM.

THE CONDITIONS APPEARED EXCELLANT 68 DEGREES AND CLIMBING, SCATTERED CLOUD COVER, AND LIGHT WINDS FROM THE SOUTH.

THE BANKS LOOKED GOOD AND WATER CLARITY WAS EXCELLANT.

HERE IS MIKE AT THE FIRST HOLE.

FOURTH OR FIFTH CAST THE FIRST OF MANY TO COME WE HOPE!

HE WAS USING HIS SAGE 3 WT. AND I HEARD HIM GRUNT INTO A HOOK SET! WHAT IN THE WORLD?

THE SHORE FIGHT, BIG SWIRLS WHAT IS IT?

CLOSER EXAMINATION REVEALED HE WAS HOOKED INTO A FAIRLY LARGE SOFT SHELL TURTLE. hahaha
SMILE!!!!!!!!

THIS PLACE WAS OLDING SOME FISH FOR SURE...AND IT WAS TOO!

CLOSE LOOK AT THE RIFFLE...YOU'D NEVER KNOW YOU WERE IN THE HOUSTON SUBURBS.

OK SO I DID CATCH A FISH TOO. THIS I PROMISE WAS THE SMALLEST.

OK SO HERE IS A CLOSER LOOK FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO ARE JUST DYING TO SEE. AND YES THAT IS A MIKE ARNOLD CLOUSER

OK THIS WAS THE NEXT SMALLEST JEESE!

WELL ANYWAYS WE HAD A GOOD TIME BUT DIDN'T CATCH MANY GOOD FISH. DON'T KNOW WHY WE JUST DIDN'T.  SORRY ABOUT THE CAMERA FOCUS IT IS A NEW CAMERA FROM CHRISTMAS AND I HAVE A LEARNING CURVE TO GET BY FIRST.

Hey Mike I went down to that bridge location I first took you to, and fished all the way down stream to the deep hole. I caught one small 10" bass.  There wasn't a fish active that I could see anywhere.  But then I noticed foot impressions in the grass on the embankment that most likely were left from earlier this am.  I still can't believe there were not more fish to be seen.  Water clairty was excellant, flow was where you would want it too. I am thinking somebody came by and had a field day.  Call me tomorrow we'll go elsewhere.

NICE TRIP REPORT JARED, NOW YOU CAN SEE WHY MY BROTHER GUIDED THAT RIVER FOR TWELVE YEARS. THOSE "GOLDENS" ARE HYBREDS FROM THE MISSOURI HATCHERY WHERE THE FISH COME FROM.  DID YOU NOTICE THE SQUARE TAILS ANOTHER SIGN OF HATCHERY FISH.  NO MATTER WHERE THEY COME FROM THEY ARE A HOOT TO CATCH.  THE NYMPH AND DROPPER RIGS ARE PRECARIOUS TO THROW AND REQUIRE SKILL BEYOND WHAT I HAVE BUT THE STREAMER THING IS WHERE IT'S AT AS FAR AS I'M CONCERNED.  YOU JUST MIGHT FIND YOURSELF FACING DOWN A 20LB. STRIPER TOO!!!!!!!!

GREAT REPORT AND HOPEFULLY I'LL MAKE THE ONE FLY AND FOLLOW YOU TO THE HONEYHOLES ;D ;D ;D

YOU KIDDING ME, I'M WORKING MY BUNS OFF AND YOU ARE CORRECT I AM FORTUNATE. NOW AS FOR THE NEW ROD I DIDN'T SEE A POSITIVE ANSWER... I'M THINKING WE TAKE THAT LITTLE 3 WT. AND BUST UP SOME TROUTS UNDER THE LIGHTS DOWN ON THE INNERCOASTAL FUFUFUFUNNNNNNN!

BY THE WAY BEAR WE DIDN'T EVEN HOOK A GAFFTOP SO I DIDNT HAVE A CHANCE TO EVEN PUT A BRUISE ONTHE 11 WT. :o

« on: December 26, 2011, 08:55:30 AM »
What gets me if a private individule was responsible for this he would be hanged in Federal court and made a scape goat for everything else wrong in the world!  But since it appears the feds are the culprit here...oh well yawn yawn.  Relying on an enviromental impact studies done back in the mid seventies when they were still free dumping PCB and heavy metals into our bayous and bays is a joke.  Balancing an mega ecosystem such as Galveston Bay is no easy trick and for our Corps of Engineers to turn a blind eye to what is going on is criminal!  But you know who has cut budgets that would directly impact the Corps work here.  In my opinion a Biological Due Diligence study conducted by a committee of local, state, and federal biologists should have been leading the way before any of this was approved.
