"Due to the incoming tropical depression forecast for this Saturday along with the increased probability of lightning, I feel that it is in our best interest to cancel/postpone the event. We can revisit later in the year and perhaps reschedule then." MFQ 2020-07-22-0900

Launch from Charlie's Bait camp, 4194 Lane Rd, Seadrift, TX 77983
Boats and kayaks can easily fish the area.
Meet at the launch 30 minutes after sunrise to allow the vampires to go to bed. About 0715.
Meet back at the boat ramp at 1600 to see who caught what.
More details to follow.
The rest started showing up at Thursday afternoon at the Beach house “Playn Hooky” to set up sleeping arrangements and do some basic organizing. By Friday afternoon, all the beds were filled, as well as the couches and recliner.
The original plan was to go over to Stingeree for dinner Thursday and Friday night. That turned out to be too hard to do. The crowds at the eatery were extremely long due to spring break, so we opted to feed ourselves. Fish were caught but Daniel Tatum and his son cleaned up on the Red Fish on Saturday.
MGM, Clousers, and redfish cracks caught fish.

4 people made the trip to Garcitas Creek, the January 2018 outing. A quick check of the water and it was found to be too fresh, so the group moved 5 miles to the Lavaca River boat launch.
Garcitas Creek, January 2018 outing, it is happening
The day started out cool and fishless, but heated up, both temperature and the bite as the day progressed.
Small flies worked better on these winter specks.
Here is what our participants had to say with pictures below.
