Q and I took a road trip with a few ideas in mind: Find a place to launch a kayak in support of https://texasflyfishers.org/2023/01/13/prison-permit-roundup-2023/ Run down the beach and see if we can a place to launch kayaks to fish the SW corner of East Matagorda Bay Get as close as we could to our marked honey hole by travelling down the beach Identify any costs that outsiders, such as us, would not normally know about. Here is what we learned:
Chasing Texas sheepshead in the skinny waters of East Matagorda Bay with a fly rod. We will meet at Matagorda Harbor on Sat, Feb 18 in the morning. (time to be determined) Fish and meet back at the launch area at 4pm. NOTE: This is a boat and wade fishing only trip. You must be physically able to "climb" out of a boat and wade fish. More details to come as the date gets closer. We will need figure out participates and how many folks needing rides on boats are identified.
Tuesday, December 6th, 2022, 0800 at Stingaree Marina until about 1400 (T1O that night that I don't want to miss) The nearby marsh should be filled with redfish and trout and even large black drum for those who wish to go on a Texas sleigh ride! Details here....
15 club members made this adventure. Our scattered group travelled from Houston, New York, Colorado, Hawaii, and more. Jerry B. And Raymond L. had been there since Monday, getting some fishing in while waiting for the rest of us to show up. My hopes ere to be able to "boat hop" fishing with different anglers and guides during this event. It was a partial success, as we are creatures of habit. I was able to fish with 5 different guides on 8 sessions. For me this included a trip to the lagoons, with Jerry B. Our first day of fishing, started out slow. Not many tarpon were hooked, with one being landed by the Japanese family on vacation there. We were able to settle into our "ready" mode, and a few tarpon were jumped, but I don't think that most of us had our technique dialed in. CLICK TO READ MORE
