  1. Sign me up John. I will be in the 21’Blue Shallow Sport “GET THE NET V.” I have room for one to drift and blind fish with me. I also can drop waders off if they like to wade. I will be a the Fly Tying Expo this weekend.

  2. IS THIS ONLY A ONE DAY FISHING OUTING? YOU’D HAVE TO LEAVE HOUSTON AT THREE IN THE MORNING TO GET TO CHARLIES BY SUN UP. THEN PADDLE OUT TO THE HAPPY FISHING GROUNDS. THAT SEEMS TO ME TO BE A LOT OF WORK FOR A SHORT DAY. IS THERE ANYBODY WANTING TO STAY OVER NIGHT FRIDAY AND SATURDAY AND FISH SATURDAY AND SUNDAY. ITS JUST A LONG WAY TO DRIVE TO FISH MAYBE SIX HOURS AND THEN HAVE TO RETURN THE SAME DAY. PLEASE RESPOND.

    I called Coastal Bend Motel (361 785 3322) in Seadrift. They have four rooms available. Each room has two queen beds; cost is $88/night. I will probably stay there.
