CURRENTS – December/January 2020
As the first cold fronts of the season begin to roll in, we look forward to the upcoming Flounder bite to start heating up. No one is more active in pursuing these flat fish than the entertaining presenter and lure manufacturer Joe Moughon, aka “Chicken Boy”. Joe graciously accepted our offer to speak at our first Angler’s Night Out event hosted at Berryhill Cantina. The event was a huge success and we thank CCA Texas for supporting our chapter grow its membership. There was a multitude of prizes given out and our very own “Lawyer Bob” won the Jim West guided trip that was auctioned off next to some other amazing gifts. Make sure and check out Joe’s website at chickenboylures.com and look for his extensive line of soft baits that are currently available at local Academy Sports + Outdoors locations.
Speaking of growth, we would like to also welcome our newest board members Mike Anderson and Teri & Greg Spinney. Also stepping up the plate and providing a much need boost is David Darilek our newly appointed Secretary and John Breland our elected Vice President, who has provided support with organizing and coordinating upcoming chapter events. They both have made an immediate impact as we look forward to continuing our growth into the near year.
Congratulations to Joel Canavan for bringing home the trophy in our 2019 Presidents Cup Challenge. The weekend started with a social outing at Hookers Bar & Grill located just south of Sugarland in Sargent, TX. Anglers set out Saturday morning and braved the conditions in search of the Heaviest Stringer of Trout, Redfish and Flounder. The weigh-in and prizes were once again presented at the canal home of Barbara and Bob Hilliard who graciously provided a well-deserved BBQ meal for all our contestants. Thank you to all that attended, and we look forward to seeing you again next year.
Please save the date for next upcoming general membership meeting on December 4, 2019 where we will have Mr. Philip Cambra with Shimano speak about upcoming Christmas wish list items and the latest equipment to hit the market. Happy Holidays to all and we’ll catch you on the next incoming tide!
