The event’s itinerary goes something like this…
Thursday and Friday July 27 and 28…Pre-fishing POC fun for all that can get away and join us. If you need lodging…get it.
Friday night the Captains meeting will be held at the event HQ from 6 – 9 PM. I’m thinking there could be some steaks, baked potatoes and fresh green salads being prepared for those who let us know they are coming. We’ll be doing a Calcutta too. Saturday’s event – Fishing begins at 6:00 AM until 4:00 PM. Please make sure everyone on your boat has their state license up to date.
This is an Inshore – CPR event, which means inside the Jetties or Pass Cavallo are out! Sorry but this is due to safety factors concerning small skiffs. Catch/Photograph/Release RULE CHANGES FROM PAST EVENTS. All fish entered must be within the legal size limitation set by the State of Texas. You can only enter a Texas bag limit, ie. Three Redfish 20″ – 28″, Five Trout (TFF supports “Just Take Five”) 15″ – 25″, Five Black Drum 14″ and above, Five Flounder 14″ and above, and Five Sheepshead – 15 and above. You must take picture of your fish using a tape measure or other fish length scale to indicate fish size.
Now lets talk about lodging. There are several units in Pirates Cove and other close by accommodations that are available that weekend, some even have boat slips. If you can put a group of folks together I would strongly suggest contacting POC Rentals to hold one of these locations ASAP. Most of the units will easily hold 6 to 8 people making the nightly cost very reasonable on a per person basis. Please handle this yourself, I personally don’t have the time. However if I know you are looking, I sure can help with who to contact.
I have been asked by many if John P. will cook up his famous Paella, answer is YES we will have our Saturday Night Big Dinner. John P. will be cooking up his ultra delicious “Purcell’s Paella”, in addition, we’ll also have some fantastic appetizers, plenty of cold beer, and a BYOB bar.
As always, if you need to talk to me ((832) 29(ate)-38 five five)or email me (mgraham(dash)rrsm(AT)comcast(DOT)net) I’m not hard to find.
