CURRENTS – Apr/May 2019

I would like to report that the Matagorda Bays Chapter is in full swing for the year. We should be taking delivery of our 2019 raffle boat in a couple weeks. This year’s boat will be fully rigged 25’ Haynie Magnum with 300 HP Suzuki. The boat sits on a double axel Coastline Trailer.   The guys at Chris’s Marine are making sure the boat will be an eye catcher.  Be looking for the boat around the end of March and a chance to buy a ticket around the El Campo area. If you are not in this part of the world give Wesley Smolik a call @ 979.543.2753 he would be happy to get you hooked up with a ticket. Be sure to mark your calendars for our 2019 banquet on June 27th at the El Campo Civic Center. 

The chapters 14th Annual Lil’ Salties Fishing Blowout is scheduled for May 11, 2019 at the Matagorda Harbor.  Matagorda Bays chapter members should be receiving entry forms in the mail. Parents be sure to get them filled out and mailed back ASAP so we can plan another great tournament.  Last year we had a great year with 227 kids coming out for a day of fun.  Every entry receives a prize bag, trophy and tee shirt. If you are interested in donating to this great event or have any questions contact Lynn Staff or Thomas Gold Feel free to contact me if you have any questions about the chapter.
