CURRENTS – Apr/May 2019
The Redfish Bay Chapter started 2019 with its usual determination to support our local environment through the Coastal Conservation Association, Texas.
Our annual banquet was April 6, 2019, and, as usual was a fun and successful event! Special thanks to Chris’s Marine for being our Title Sponsor for the 16th year in a row (talk about tradition)! We would also like to thank all of our donors and sponsors for making our raffles and auctions interesting for all of our attendees. Our local Board and Houston support team work hard to make this a family event, and we could not be successful without the support of our local communities. Nothing happens unless our members attend the event, and we thank you for taking time out of your schedule to purchase tickets and tables as well as buy raffle tickets and auction items. All monies raised in Texas stay in Texas!
Our next event is the “Take a Kid Fishing” event May 31/June 1. The “tournament” will start on Friday evening with registration ($10), free rod and reel, and shrimp boil. There is also a drawing for the lucky kids who will be able to fish with one of the game wardens on Saturday morning (a parent has to accompany the kid/kids). Fishing is Saturday morning, and the fish are then weighed and measured for trophies to be given out at ceremonies to follow. Hot dogs are served for lunch. This is a fun event for the kids, the only rule is that there are no rules! The $10 at registration is for a youth membership in CCA that includes STAR membership.
The Beeville Fish Fry is later in the year, and it is usually the Thursday before dove season starts. More information will be provided as the date nears. It is very much like a banquet with raffle, silent auction, and live auction items.
The 2019 Redfish Bay Banquet was held April 6. Thank you to all of those who came out and showed support. Stay tuned for 2020 details and ticketing.
Beeville Fish Fry
Our Beeville Fish Fry will be the Thursday before dove season starts. A fun event! More information to follow later in the year.
The annual Take-a-Kid-Fishing event will be on May 31/June 1. This is a great event for young anglers! The registration is the evening of the 31st. The charge is $10 for a CCA youth membership that includes STAR. Each fisherperson receives a rod and reel, and there is a shrimp boil after registration. Fishing is Saturday, June 1st, until noon, when fish are weighed and measured. Trophies are given to each angler! Hot dogs are served during weigh-in.
