EVENT: Speaker, Monthly Meeting, Tuesday, January 31, 2023 “Puck” flyfishing for Texas Sheepshead

I know we all were looking forward to Ron's presentation. It is still going to happen, but not this month. And no, that is not my photo, but one shared by a club member. Here is what we have in store for our January monthly meeting. "Puck" (Don C. Puckett, SFC, US Army [retired]) and TPWD Angler Ed. Certified Instructor will tell you how he fishes for, and sometimes catches sheepshead, on the Texas coast. We plan to have some folks tie sheepshead flies before the meeting. A "give away" table will be set up, and if we can arrange it, we hope to have a few door prizes.

Scouting out East Matty, 2018-02-18

In preparation for next weeks' outing : Prison Permit Invitational, 2018 3 of us loaded into Mike Q's boat and made the run from Matagorda Harbor to the south shoreline, around Cleveland Bayou.

We saw 9 sheephead, and a few small schools of 6" mullet.  The sheephead were staging near the the scarce shell in the shallows, and along the underwater weedlines.  I was only able to get a cast off to one of them.  The rest spooked, and ran.
