There are a lot of changes to how this trip is coming together.

Sign up early enough to get into the A/C, or let me know if you want to camp.

This is a great fishing trip!


Outing Chat / Re: Bull Reds, Jack Carvelle, on a Fly??

I just answered your thread on the chat forum but I will tell you catching a big jack while wading in 16" of water is a hoot.  John Purcell was with me two years ago when I spotted a big jack cruising back in Mule Slough in less than 16" of water. I was eating a sandwich while sitting on the bow of my scooter so I just reach back and grabbed my rod stripped off 30 feet of line... one handed cast (wasn't going to drop my sandwich) and boom a huge jack pounced on the fly.  Ok now I dropped the sandwich. I fought the fish while wading away from the boat. I got John positioned to take underwater pictures while I was fighting the fish but John got inside the fishes line arch and the Jack turned back into John wrapping the line around his leg and BBBBUUUURRRRRNNNNN Snap! But he did get some good pictures.

But here is a few from last year. OOopps notice the two piece Xi3 10 weight.  Belonged to Dr. Mike Eberhardt! Well he told me to use it.  I thought he said to abuse it...I did!

Here is Dave Lord you want to know what to throw...look closely at the small mop hanging out of the fishes mouth.  Better practice your casting this fly will ware you (and me) out.

Don if you find a 40 lb Jack anywhere in POC Leave it alone! Besides breaking your rod it would probably sink your boat too. They are bad mamajama's. I have only caught one over twenty-five pounds that didn't break the rod I was using no matter what weight it was! Just ask John Purcell. Big reds are easy compared to a jack ...and I ain't lying.  There is something about that last run at the boat!  You better loosen your drag the closer you get the fish to the boat.  ;D
No longer do we have a cabin. 

We now have 2 cabins and one campsite!

8 more A/C places are still open as of today, 2014-04-12.

Take a look at the map, and information provided by TPWD.

And I've marked where we took out and took out. 

I don't show the campsites, or where we caught fish.  That would be up to Brent and his team at ReelFly Fishing Adventures.;)

You are welcome!   ;D

That smallmouth gives you just another reason to go back. 

Yeah, thanks Puck for helping relive the very special moment of hooking a personal best smallmout, then having it spit the hook. Ah, well... I guess that is what keeps us coming back. I know he's swimming out there somehwere, just taunting me.  I'll go back and find him!

Argh... >:(
