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.


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.

My first exposure to full sink was this weekend from my boat on Harmon Creek. It didn't seem too bad. Just needed some getting used to. I've played with sink-tip a few times off the Surfside jetty.

I am looking for a second line for my #8. You're suggesting a full sink over a sink-tip? I'm thinking about a line for use off the boat for deeper (4'-8') fish (e.g. trout) and perhaps for the odd surf or jetty trip.

Do you have any particular line to favor? In full sinking lines, Orvis Hydros HD depth charge is $98(!).  Their Access Type III is on sale for $49. I hadn't priced the RIO or SA lines yet, but I've generally tended towards Rio lines.  Not sure about sink-tips either.

Due to the apathetic response, the outing is cancelled.

I've only got 3 people signed up, including myself & Tracy. If I don't get at least 3-4 more by Tuesday, I'm cancelling the trip.

I'll be camping as well. No sense driving from Richmond to Katy, just to drive back to Damon.

If we don't get some people signed up for this trip soon, we are going to cancel it all together.

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?

Guys, if you don't sign up now or at least give some indication of interest in staying overnight, we are going to cancel the beach house we were looking to rent. If you are interested, please indicate ASAP!!
