From Don:

"Date 31 Jan 2015, Time: 10-am to 3pm

 Here is some info on this tournament... This will be my first time leading a tournament, Your support will be welcomed... This tournament will be bragging right ,unless some one comes up with a some prizes..  The Name of tournament will be call the "Grand Slam Tournament" , your three fish stringer would include : a trout, a red, a flounder. If a Grand Slam is not caught, the "heaviest" stringer wins, followed by 2nd and 3rd only one of each species of fish will be weighed in.  Heaviest is determined by Photo of fish with measurement.
Know one may fish alone... for safety, an you will need proof of you catch...

Loction:  Chocolate Bayou Boat Ramp
GPS  29,21180, -95.208719

Driving  from Houston...go to 45 South towards Galveston,,,exit 646, follow 646 to FM 2004..turn right on 2004 and drive until you see a chemical plant one right...watch your speed.... passed the plant go over bridge and take a right to boat ramp under the bridge... Boy scouts build a fishing cleaning stationed... on ramp area..  No  stores in area, so you need to get all your supplies before you get to boat ramp.... It would nice to have a marine radio on hand for safety... not many people around if you get into trouble, Cell phones will work too.

Best way to get see photo of area... Go to Google Earth and search "Chocolate Bayou.... for best info.. study the boat ramp  and the fish areas up the bayou and out over west bay...Those with boats want to go one on a fishing tour just give me a call,,, I'm retired! and will be happy to take you out an show all the hazards. any questions : :) call Don Hanselman - 713-816-0884"

To fish, or not to fish?  What a stupid question!

Thanks Don, for getting things started. I would like to be the first on your boat. Is a kayak required or will you be fishing from your boat. If so I can manage to get a yak no problem. Knowing you, I’d better bring some conventional tackle to keep up with the H-man.  Hahahaha

Yes, Will fish from boat if I have too, but wadding would be more easier.. Bring a Yake and I will carry you to the fish around the pond..It's not to far from boat ramp a lot of good fishing this area. I can carry to yakes, an four people...So two will get into yaks an myself an other person will fish from boat and wade.

I don't have a kayak, but I do have a boat. So count me in.
