CURRENTS – August/September 2019
Hello all! Summer recap so far: our Fort Bend Chapter participated in the CCA’s Inter Chapter Challenge Tournament (ICC Tournament). The team was made up of a good mix of members and some great fishermen however we didn’t have the good fortune to place this year. Congratulations to the winners, there were some good fish weighed in that day. We would also like to thank the CCA Texas staff for hosting the tournament again this year, it was a ton of fun and we really appreciate it!
The fishing this summer has been amazing. Many of us in the group, including myself, have made several trips and we have not been disappointed. Plastics, top waters or bait it hasn’t mattered. We even had a trip at the end of June where we fished under working birds the entire time. So, the next chance you get, head down to your local waterway and wet a line. At the very least you will get to enjoy the time out and have a story or two to tell.
Coming up next is our “Lingerie on The Bay” all ladies fishing tournament September 6-7. This event usually has upwards of 250 ladies participate and let me tell you they can fish! We hope to see you there. Information on the event can be found at ccatexas.org/ fort-bend/ or on Matagordabay.com.
Side note, we had a member recently catch a slot red and when he got it to the cleaning table he found a plastic water bottle inside the fish! So please remember to respect the water and pickup your trash, it is easy for things to blow out of boats when we’re not looking. Hope to see you on the water!

Our Fort Bend committee members wrapped up our 33rd annual banquet on April 11, 2019 and what a great and successful banquet it was! There were 400+ people in attendance this year and we would like to personally thank each and every one of you for your generous contributions and for supporting our chapter and the CCA. We can’t wait to see you again in 2020.
