Well we made it down to POC with high hopes this past weekend. We hit Cathy's for supper on Friday and planned our attack for the next morning. We met up at Clark's to launch and mounted up our rides. Unfortunately, a certain club officer neglected a very important concept....boats don't float well without their drain plugs! After a few sheepish looks and a few minutes to get himself re-situated, we set forth for the jetties. The conditions were beautiful, with light breezes and nice water. We worked some bird flocks but didn't find any takers. A few of us hit the shore just east of the jetties and found a few schools of ladyfish which provided entertainment for awhile. We then moved to the jetties proper, but couldn't find any takers. The boats spread out over the POC area and fished various spots (Greens, Lighthouse, etc), but no one could find the magic fly that was working. Finally, after many hours of limited (at best) success, we returned to our condo for lies and libations. The next morning, several boats went out and it would appear they did have some success, but this reporter had to head back to Katy to tend to personal business.

A big thank you to all the boat captains for allowing us aboard and a thanks to Golden for helping me pull this one together during a tough personal time. Chris S will be co-ordinating the Fence Lake trip and I will be back in the saddle for the POC One-Fly.

Tight lines and most importantly, be safe!

Your intrepid Saltwater Chairman,

MFQ aka Wormdrowner

My wife and my dad are both insisting that I go, though I am not certain I should.  I guess tentatively, I am in.

Due to the death of my mother and the need to help my father liquidate her belongings and move in with Tracy & me, there is a strong possibility that I will not be able to make this trip. In my absence, Mike Graham has been gracious enough to fill in.

Guys, if you are planning on going, please get signed up! I have 9 names so far, but I know more of you have spoken about going. Unless you sign on this website, I can't  consider you for boat & room assignments. If you are having trouble signing up here, contact both Dave Kelley about access and me to let me know to add you to the list.

Lester L. has been gracious enough to volunteer his family's house in POC for us to stay in if you are not camping on the island, as well as bringing his boat to add to the fleet.

Looks like we are getting a good crowd for this one. What's going on as far as lodging?

Fellas, I need you to actually sign up, not just mention it on here. Also, please let me know if you're camping or coming back to town so I can plan lodging.

Do we want to have a meal on Friday or Saturday night? Does someone want to cook or shall I make reservations somewhere?

I almost forot the classy act of Justin Pool and his boat on Saturday. He, Colton and Gary were flagged down by a couple of guys who got lost an ran out of gas. Justin towed then all the way across East Matty back to the boat ramp. The guys gave up a sizable hunk (about 3-4 hours and 23 gallons of gas.) of their day to help out some fellow anglers. I hope the fishing gods look kindly on this and have some serious karma headed their way. They earned it!

Well.....the fishing was tough. The bay was very murky in most places and the wind was 15+ most of the day. Don Hanselman did find some clean water and caught a nice flounder and (I think) two rat reds. Colton lost what he thought was a sheepshead and I believe Alex lost two fish as well. Despite the tough conditions, everyone seemed to have a great time. HUGE HUGE thanks to Bill W. for hosting us at his place and a personal thank you from me for hauling me around the bay all day. MEGA thanks to George S. for cooking up an incredible feed on Friday night



Thanks to Golden for the character assassination  ;)  in anticipation of my pending nuptials and thanks to everyone for the well wishes.

The next trip is to the POC jetties on May 31. Be there or be trapezoid!

Dave,

I suggested that Gary E get hold of you regarding a room. Don't know if he needs one, but he just contacted me about coming down. PM me if you need his number.
