Hello everyone, the Ft. Bend committee members and I are getting excited now! Our 34th Annual Banquet is coming up and we have some great things in store for you this year. To start things off our grand prize will be a 2020 JH Performance Outlaw 185x with an Evinrude 115hp ETEC and a Coastline single axle aluminum trailer. There will also be four other chances to win some fishing gear so be sure and get your tickets! For tickets please contact Jim Black (979) 240-5010. There will also be a live and silent auction, bucket raffle, games, a great meal, plenty of beverages and much more. So, it’s time to get the friends and family out for some fun!

Doors open at 6:00 p.m. to preview auction items and begin silent auction bids, dinner is served around 7:00 p.m. Contact Jim Black or Blake Tumlinson (979) 332-2236, our banquet chairman, for banquet details.

I’d like to give a special thanks to Sport Marine in Richmond for all they did for us on this year’s raffle, it is a beautiful boat and we can’t thank them enough for supporting us. Another huge thank you to all our donors and sponsors. We are fortunate to have the support from so many good people; this event wouldn’t be the same without it. Thank you all very much!
Finally, some dates for other upcoming events: CCA Kidfish will be July 25, 2020 and the “ladies only” fishing tournament, The Lingerie on The Bay, both held in Matagorda, will be September 11- 12, 2020. Flyers and entry forms will be posted at matagordabay.com and ccatexas.org/fort-bend so be on the lookout for these events.
Remember to keep the waterways clean and be respectful to your fellow anglers. Hope to see you on the water!
