General Discussion / Navionics Plus chip
« on: May 19, 2015, 04:37:19 AM »
I have been kicking around the idea of picking up a Navionics Plus chip to use in my boats. I like the versatility of using in both fresh & salt.  Of course, I'm not quite as concerned about bottom structure as a conventional angler would be, but I can see times where is would be handy.  The main objective would be improving the charting on my Lowrance units (Elite 7 HDI & Elite 5 DSI). I also will be using at least the freshwater boat for some conventional fishing on occasion.

Any thoughts, feedback etc?

Just to let everyone know:

I exchanged emails with Charles Osborne, our new webmaster, and he advised me that he has been in a pretty intense training session all week, but will get on to updated & revising the website shortly. Please be patient as he's swamped right now.

Thanks!

Outing Chat / Harmon Creek White Bass?
« on: March 25, 2015, 08:18:43 AM »
Was thinking about heading up to Harmon Creek with Tracy this Saturday. Think the sand bass are still up in the creek or have they moved out to the main lake? Looking for a nice, easy place for her to catch a few and for me to run the freshwater boat a bit.

General Discussion / Sinking line
« on: February 27, 2015, 07:01:17 AM »
I picked up some Type III sinking line for my old 7 wt. Thought I'd give it a try for both lakes & bays. I've never used full sink before. Any advice, thoughts or ideas on using it?

General Discussion / Texas Fly Fishing Expo - New Braunfels May 29-31

I just booked a room over at Maricopa Lodge for me and the missus. I'll be a couple weeks after surgery, so I won't be fishing yet.  If you aren't going to fish Chocolate Bayou, come join us in the Hill Country.

I'd rather be fishing, but a man has to know his limitations.........

General Discussion / Good group of folks!
« on: February 08, 2015, 04:36:46 PM »
I'd like to thank everyone for making my dad feel so welcome at the fly tying festival yesterday. He commented to me "I can see why you like spending so much time with this group. Everyone here is so nice!" 

Made me feel proud and privileged to be a member of the club!   :D

This seems to be a good idea for rod holders on a boat. I'm going to give it a try:

Greg Berlocher asked me if I had any photos for an article he's writing on fly fishing for sheepshead. I don't have any but I said I'd ask if any of y'all have one he can use.  Please let me or Greg know if you do.  Thanks.

General Discussion / Crane Creek Missouri?
« on: September 22, 2014, 07:57:22 AM »
Has anyone in the club fished this area? It's supposed to be a great trout stream. Tracy's daughter is getting married in Crane, MO next year and seeing as the creek runs through town, I think I'll bring my 3 & 5 wts.
