CURRENTS – Oct/Nov 2018

Hello CCA Members. Fall is about here and we have been busy in South Texas! We had a great turnout for our annual skeet shoot tournament. Thank you Kelly Dunning, for taking the lead and managing the tournament. Shout out to Mike Henry for sponsoring us with the CC Pistol and Rifle Club. Our members received a CCA legislative update from Troy Williamson and the Rudy’s BBQ was awesome.

Our Anglers’ Night Out (ANO) event and membership drive was on September 11th and we had a big crowd at Brewster’s. Jay Gardner, Kesley Gibson, Patience Cannon, Judy Arnold and Jessica Arroyo worked hard on the final checklist and the event’s deadlines. Our speakers for ANO were Quentin Hall from Harte Research Institute, who spoke about Cedar Bayou and Jay Gardner, from CCA Corpus Christi, updated the crowd about CCA Texas Habitat Today/Fish for Tomorrow Projects along the Texas coastline. Our own CCA lobbyist, Joey Parks, from Austin spoke about advocacy and upcoming CCA conservation efforts.

On October 5 and 6, Columbus Day Weekend, the Corpus Christi Chapter will be hosting Babes on Baffin Ladies Fishing Tournament. The event will be at Marker 37, same as last year, on North Padre Island. 250 lady anglers participated in last year’s tournament and we are expecting a great turnout again this year! Valerie Chilton, Tournament Director, can be reached at 361-882-5199 regarding sponsorship opportunities and information. Registration is open, you can access it through the CCA website, CCA Corpus Christi Facebook page or Babes on Baffin Facebook page.

On Saturday, October 27th, our chapter will be sponsoring the Poco Rojo Kid Fish Tournament at the CCA Marine Development Center in Flour Bluff. Our committee members are working hard putting the pieces together for a great Kids Day with their families. Dr. Robert Vega and his Parks and Wildlife Department staff at the hatchery will be hosting the event. For more information, check our CCA website and Facebook page, mark your calendar and bring the family for some great fishing and a tour of the hatchery.

Would you like to get involved as a volunteer for one of our upcoming events? For information , call Cliff Johnstone at 361-816-7338 or email cjohnstone@higginbotham.net or Jay Gardner at jgardner@lja.com
