CURRENTS – Dec/Jan 2019
Our chapter had a very busy October!
On October 5th, our chapter held the Babes on Baffin Ladies Fishing Tournament at the recently remodeled Marker 37 on North Padre Island —what a turnout! Over two hundred and fifty lady anglers participated—check out our CCA website and Facebook page for some great photos. Congratulations to Valerie Chilton, Judy Arnold and all the board members/volunteers who donated their time to make this annual lady fishing event so successful.
On October 27th, our chapter held the Poco Rojo Kids Fishing Tournament at the CCA Marine Development Center in Flour Bluff. Our committee members worked hard putting the pieces together for a great Kids Day and their families. We had 100 kid anglers participate in our Poco Rojo Kids Fishing Tournament this year. The first-place winners for each category were: Red Fish-Jayden Beltran @ 34 ¼ inches, Black Drum-Hunter Schafersman @ 28 1/4 inches, Sheep Head-Anthony DeLeon @ 12 inches and Red Fish Most Spots-Jordan Lewis @ 8. Congratulations to our winners and to all kids who participated in our tournament. Check out our CCA website and Facebook page for some great photos. Thank you to all of our sponsors and CCA volunteers who volunteered Friday and Saturday in order to make this event so successful each year. Kids mark your calendars for Saturday, April 27, 2019 for our next Poco Rojo Kids Fishing Tournament.
