CURRENTS – June/July 2018
At the time of this publication we will have already hosted the 2018 Golden Triangle Chapter Annual Banquet. We are expecting another record breaking year. As of May 3, we have 90 tables sold! That shatters our previous record of 80 tables set last year. I would like to thank all our sponsors and donors for their continued support and generosity.
We hosted a new board member meet-and-greet at Giglio Distributing in March with great success. A huge reason we are expecting record attendance is because of the new board members who have infused new ideas and new opportunities for table sales. I would like to thank them and all our board members, especially Kevin Picard, 2018 Banquet Chairman. New board members are Mark Harmon, John Darling, Travis Norris, Colby Plaia, Mickey Phelan, John West, Joe Winston, Cory Holley, Bobby Beaver, Josh Heinz, Jason Younger, Nick Rizzotto and Weston Martin.
Well, the friendly north winds arrived for a few days, and fishing was hot and heavy in Sabine Lake and East Galveston Bay. There were even a few reports of some surf fisherman bending rods as well. It should be interesting to see the effects that the freeze, winds and Hurricane/Tropical Storm Harvey had on our fisheries, not only on the displacement and mortality of fish, but also the lack of fishing pressure. With many fishermen hiding from the wind, repairing homes or huddled around the chimney, that leaves more fish in the water. Most reports of speckled trout, tarpon, redfish and snook mortalities during the freeze were out of the lower Texas coast. On the upper coast, the reports of fish mortality were very minimal. We hope everyone has a fun and safe summer! Tight Lines.
