DOOOOOOOOOOOOO :o

So I just heard from an un-named source that a certain individual in our club launched his/her boat into west bay for a leisure trip which turned out to be a long tow back to the marina pulled by some AGGIES!

Sounds like another candidate for the upcoming Texas Flyfishers Saltwater Skiff/Boat Class this summer.

Learn the necessary steps to get out of the marina and on the water and to return again without those pesky "if I only remembered to check..." problems. Class will include maintenance tips, boat set-up tips, and for skiff owners poling tips.  We have all been there and having a "bad experience" is not the way to learn!  Class will be held in POC over two weekend periods (Fri/Sat/Sun) will include both classroom and on the water training.  Very informative even for the man who knows everything.

You should bring your foul weather gear too, just in case we aren't attacked by chickens, but rain.  :P

Note to all attending

BRING YOUR FOWL WEATHER GEAR! UNLESS YOU WANT TO SIT AT THE HOUSE AND PLAY CARDS.  THEN I SUGGEST YOU BRING LOTS OF GOODIES TO EAT/DRINK AND YOUR CHECK BOOK!

The secret river...

Dean reminded me about how effective this simple fly truly is.  I have always tied them, and recommended them to others, but have never personally fished them.  That changed yesterday. 

I'm sure you can supply the name once you see them>

Here are a few that Nilo and I tied today.

Crabs...

Nilo and I were experimenting with what we have on hand.

Here are the results:

5 signed up but only Dean and I went.

We left Katy at 0300 and were parked at the boat launch at 0550, after passing the sign in the fog.

As we were putting the final rigging on the kayak and ready to take the first one to the water 3 trucks showed up all at once out of the fog.  We lost our spot in line for a moment, and then realized that we were small enough to squeeze by the larger boats in this one lane launch.

Boat boats in the water and lights on at 0615.   Since this was Dean's first time out in his kayak, he did a little more adjusting once he was on the water, as I went ahead to the fishing spot given to me by W. Ross, another retired Vet.  First white bass hit at the deep hole about 1/2 mile from the spawning beds.

Fishing was fast and furious, with fish running into our legs until about an hour after sunrise,  Then it slowed down, and most folks called it quits.  Dean and I moved up-river for another mile or so, exploring.  Only a few more fish were caught upriver, to include a small crappie.

We easily caught 60+ fish during the trip, and harvesting only 20.

The what bass run is almost over in this spot for the year.  Of the 20 for the table there was only one female.

I have the GPS coordinates locked for next year.
