CURRENTS – June/July 2018

Good Day, Saltwater Friends! Hopefully by the time you read this the spring winds will have subsided a little, and everyone will have had some time to get out and enjoy our beloved coastal resources. I would like to say THANK YOU to all the members who helped toe the line and make our voice heard regarding our recreational red snapper fishery.

The Corpus Christi Chapter had a busy start to the spring, and we would like to thank all of those who helped us kick off the year with a big bang at the 40th Annual Corpus Christi Chapter Banquet. Over 2,000 guests and volunteers were in attendance, and we sure hope that everyone had a great night. Our successes would not be possible without our devoted sponsorship base.  The Corpus Christi Chapter would like to thank the following sponsors – GOLD LEVEL: Academy Sports + Outdoors; Andrews Distributing; AutoNation Chevrolet Cadillac South Corpus Christi; Flint Hills Resources; and L&F Distributors. SILVER LEVEL: Corpus Christi Cycle Plaza; Hicks Family Nissan; Premier Yamaha Boating Center; and Sentinel Integrity Solutions. BRONZE LEVEL: Access Storage; Berkeley Eye Center-Corpus Christi; Borden Insurance; C&S Plating; Center for Sportfish Science and Conservation; Cooper Outdoor Advertising; F.I.R.S.T., LLC; Grunwald Printing; HRI Gulf of Mexico Studies; Intertek; Lamar Advertising; Ohmstede LTD.; Pipe Pros; Poses & Associates INC.; Ron Hoover Marine; The Boat Stop; Total Oilfield Equipment & Supply; UT Marine Science Institute; and Valero. A special thank you to the City of Corpus Christi, American Bank Center, House of Rock, Saltwater Grill, CCA Texas-Corpus Christi Chapter board members, the companies and individuals who donated items and trips to our banquet, and the individuals who filled out the membership portion of their ticket and became members or renewed their memberships to Coastal Conservation Association. You are the voice that matters.

Stay tuned, as we have plans for another Angler’s Night Out in the making!

Our growing-in-popularity Babes on Baffin All Ladies Fishing Tournament is set for Columbus Day weekend (October) and the place is TBD.

Before I sign off, I would sincerely like to thank Judy Arnold and Valerie Chilton, our banquet chairs who made the Corpus Christi Chapter’s 40th Annual Banquet one to remember. And lastly, if you feel so called to serve, our chapter is always looking for folks to help us do the great things we do.
