CURRENTS – August/September 2019

Hello from the Mid Coast Chapter! Hope you are staying cool out there and catching a few fish! Our chapter hosted a CCA night at the Victoria Generals baseball game on the evening of May 30, recruiting several new members and talking with our community about all the good work CCA is doing. Chelsea Bailey, Calhoun County game warden who frequently appears on Lone Star Law, provided the opening welcome. Congratulations to new CCA member Jordan Brown for winning a fishing trip with board member Ty Goyen!

We had one of our year’s best in the CCA Inter Chapter Challenge tournament on June 6, with board member Rod Graci taking first place Trout at 5.18 lbs. and our team taking 3rd place Stringer at 19.22 lbs. Thanks to all our team members who participated and CCA Texas for putting on another great event!

Everyone is invited to come out on the evening of August 13 to Frances Marie’s restaurant in Victoria at 6:30 to enjoy a presentation on upcoming oyster mariculture opportunities in Texas after the recent passage of TX House Bill 1300. Dr John Scarpa, professor from Texas A&M Corpus Christi, will be sharing his experiences with oyster farming around the Gulf and what the new legislation means for Texas. Dinner and a drink will be served during the presentation for $25. Please RSVP to Cheryl Guthrie at or (361) 935 3342.

Our next big event is the 18th annual Speedy Stop Guides Cup tournament on October 4 in Port O’Connor. We are looking forward to hosting the guides and the fisherman who purchased trips at our annual banquet this past May.
