CURRENTS – Dec/Jan 2021
Here at the Matagorda Bays Chapter we are concluding a very successful year and looking towards next year’s events. Our final chapter event for 2020, the Jim Ehman Memorial Guides Cup, has been re-scheduled once again and has been moved to April 13, 2021.
We are excited to announce the 2021 Matagorda Bays Chapter boat raffle prize. We have pushed the limits again with the largest motor ever being placed on a CCA Texas boat and we want to send a huge thank you out to Chris’s Marine of Aransas Pass for the loaded raffle boat. We have placed our chapter order for a Haynie 25 Magnum with the following accessories and motor: tournament seats, flush lids, extended gunnels, gunnel lights, painted console, graphics package, C-Top, powder coating, 80qt. Engel cooler, dual 8ft power poles, custom upholstery, BT Stereo System with HT4 amp, Garmin 94SV, swim platform, Coastline tandem trailer and a 400HP Mercury Verado! YES, a 400HP Verado!
We expect delivery of the boat after the first of the year and will begin selling raffle tickets as soon as the boat is in El Campo. Please check out our Facebook page and chapter webpage on the CCA Texas website for any all boat raffle and banquet updates.
Closing quote for 2020, “Most of the world is covered by water. A fisherman’s job is simple: pick out the best parts,” Charles Waterman. It’s time for our CCA supporters to pick out the best parts of Matagorda Bay and don’t forget to take a kid fishing! If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact us at any time.
