CURRENTS – Apr/May 2019

Spring is almost upon us! Big winds and bull tides will be welcoming spring tide runner trout before we know it.  Our Mid Coast Chapter is excited about our 2019 banquet, which will be held at the Victoria Community Center on May 3.

Our chapter participated in the Abandoned Crab Trap Clean Up on February 16. We had 2 boats and 5 board members, Wade Harrell, Mark Saddler, Rod Graci, Mike Brawner and Cheryl Guthrie, who pulled 53 traps out of San Antonio Bay. Overall, the one-day cleanup effort coordinated by the San Antonio Bay Partnership yielded 225 traps. Members of the Austin chapter also helped out.

Tables for our 2019 banquet are selling quickly, so make sure and get your spot before we sell out! If you are interested in more information regarding table sales or other sponsorship opportunities, please contact Tylar Walyuchow at 361-541-9011.

We are excited to have a 2019 Sea Doo Fish Pro as a raffle item this year! ( This personal water craft is drawing a lot of interest since it is the first ever wave runner specifically designed with the fisherman in mind! Also, on the raffle is 2019 Club Car, Baretta A400 12-gauge shotgun, Waterloo custom rod combo and a CCA 65 Qt. Engel cooler. Big thanks again to our raffle sponsor Atzenhoffer’s Velocity Powersports LLC in Victoria. If you would like to purchase raffle tickets, please contact Mike Brawner, our raffle chair, at 281.787.1671 or Cheryl Guthrie, at 361.935.3342. We only sell 400 tickets and they are already going fast!

For the first time ever, we had a CCA Mid-Coast Chapter booth at the Victoria Livestock Show, February 28-March 3. Thanks to all our board members that stepped up to help at the show, sold raffle tickets and recruited new CCA members.
