  2. Just to clarify- the outing header says Anahuac but the “About the area” says Christmas Bay. Is this gonna be Xmas Bay or Anahuac? I’m tentatively in and will be in the panga.


  3. Contact outing leader (MFQ) for a clarification 1st., but I do believe Mike is talking Anahuac Park. Don sorry to hear about your legs I know how much you love wading. Dan I can’t believe you’re not taking the Santa Maria out to the jetties.


    • I will be taking it to the jetties but considering the shape that water is in right now with all the floodwater runoff it ain’t worth it. Maybe if we’re dry between now and then.


  4. Oops- scheduling conflict. The Minister of War & Finance reminded me that she’s going to be out of town the weekend of this outing so unless I can get somebody to babysit the offspring I’m out.


  5. I will be there Saturday sometime around 6:30-7:00. We may be fishing for largemouth bass in stead of redfish!
