We will meet up at 06:45am at the Hwy 361 launch site. Brown & Root flats is a shallow bay of a few thousand acres with water depths of 6” to 2.5 ft when we will be there. Clear water and sight casting are regular here. This, combined with the grassy and sandy bottom keeps the water clear and should allow you the opportunity to sight cast to fish. The numerous spoil islands and some pipelines should provide ample opportunity to explore the area and enjoy a peaceful day of fishing. Be sure and keep your eyes along the prop scars, the fish like to sneak along these. Wade fishing in general has good bottom. If you’re in mud, move out and you will find firmer wading. Google Earth or maps show good details and can help map out a secret strategy

Our club was founded in 1976 so we have made plans to celebrate the founding's 45th anniversary this July 24th at a fairly local state park. The state park has a fishable lake. Boats, kayaks, canoes, etc. can all be launched. An electronic invitation will be sent out shortly to all members in good standing according to our membership rolls.

Details to follow as I start looking for some volunteers.
