CURRENTS – April/May 2021

Aren’t we all glad to be past the February 2021 freeze-out and headed towards warmer weather? Despite the weather setback, crab-trap cleanup efforts in the mid-coast region were a success, with 1203 abandoned traps removed from the waters of Aransas, San Antonio and Matagorda bays. We are all anxiously awaiting more information from Texas Parks & Wildlife on the severity and extent of the recent fish kill and are encouraging our fellow CCA members and anglers to practice conservation and help our fishery recover sooner rather than later! A recent post-freeze trip was a success with plenty of fish landed and all released! Remember, our efforts with CCA Texas are more important now than ever and consider encouraging your friends and fellow anglers to join CCA!

Given several unfortunate circumstances, including the freeze, we decided to cancel our annual Speedy Stop Guides Cup tournament originally scheduled for this month. All buyers and guides should have received an email from CCA regarding refund options, etc. We hope to get back on track next year. We are still in a bit of a flux with our annual banquet but are hoping to mix things up a bit this year with an outdoor venue and a new format. Stay tuned, we are working to lock a date in for late April/early May soon! We hope to see you and catch up on fishing tales then!
