We will have a Catch Log given out to all that sign up to be turned in before they leave (1830 hrs.) for a Drawing.

We can get a total this way for the group.

Bass, Bream and Crappie will be logged.

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

I'm clearing this with the rib since the hall pass for the Sabine trip got revoked, last minute.

I plan to bring kickboats and one of our kayaks.

This is a perfect time and place to test new unpowered watercraft.
