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
May 20-22 South Llano:
Our annual South Llano weekend was a great trip. We fished both Friday and Saturday, and the fishing was outstanding. Granted it was a little hot, but the cool water and hot fishing made it worth the trip. We will do it again next year!!! Details below on the full post
March 11-13 Harmon Creek Trip Report: Our annual Harmon Creek White Bass weekend was a huge success. Cold weather, lots of fish, and great camaraderie. We caught white bass, black bass, yellow bass, buffalo fish, and fresh water drum. Also consumed lots of great food. Weather was a little on the cold side in the mornings, but warmed up quite nicely by the afternoon

We can also target the big stuff: tarpon, bull reds, jack crevalle, king mackerel, snook. We will take the jetty boat to and from xx to the North Jetty. The last jetty boat leaves the dock at 4 pm on Saturday and first return trip is 9 am on Sunday. Location of the jetty boat is Port Aransas Fisherman’s Warf – 900 Tarpon St, Port Aransas, TX 78373 (361-749-5448). Contact Trip leader: Scott Fossum See TFF Website for details.
We will meet up at 06:45am at the Hwy 361 launch site. Brown & Root flats is a shallow bay of a few thousand acres with water depths of 6” to 2.5 ft when we will be there. Clear water and sight casting are regular here. This, combined with the grassy and sandy bottom keeps the water clear and should allow you the opportunity to sight cast to fish. The numerous spoil islands and some pipelines should provide ample opportunity to explore the area and enjoy a peaceful day of fishing. Be sure and keep your eyes along the prop scars, the fish like to sneak along these. Wade fishing in general has good bottom. If you’re in mud, move out and you will find firmer wading. Google Earth or maps show good details and can help map out a secret strategy
