The latest from CURRENTS

The Brazos Valley Chapter participated in the 2023 CCA Inter Chapter Challenge in Rockport June 9-10. The Friday evening captain’s meeting was held at the Paws and Taws Fulton Convention Center where we enjoyed hors d’oeuvres, food and fellowship with chapters from around the state. Several of our members won nice door prizes before we headed out to get ready for Saturday fishing. The ICC stayed with the catch-photo and release format through the Fishing Chaos app. Keeper Redfish were a little hard to come-by, but Mark Fitzjerrell, Tim Mullins and Ben Fort were able to locate some flounder allowing Tim to catch the largest flounder of the tournament. We finished up Saturday with a happy hour awards event at the Fulton Irish Pub & Grill with Tim winning a nice set of Rhineland steak knives for his catch.

On another note, Bess and I just returned from Alaska, where the temps were in the 50’s. Salmon were running and good halibut fishing.
