CURRENTS – Aug/Sept 2020
It’s July, we are still watching fishing videos and dreaming of day full trips & charters will return rather than social distance trips with friends and family.
For only the second time in over 129 years San Antonio Fiesta has been cancelled. The good news for us is that our CCA Fiesta Medals will certainly become a collector’s items. You can get yours by emailing me at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Our executive & banquet committee has continued to work but we made the difficult decision to not throw our 41st annual banquet/fund-raiser until next May 6, 2021. Remembering ultimately CCA Texas and our conservation mission need the support, motivation and funds we raise.
We want to congratulate CCA Texas for a hugely successful “Cast for the Coast” CCA Texas’ First Online Auction. WOW! A new virtual platform. Our banquet & executive committee “went to school” at this auction. This is the future and a great addition to, chapter banquet events. Along with incredible trips and a sweet silent auction it was really great to see our CCA buddies. With this example of success, San Antonio is in the works of planning some classic central Texas fundraising. We refuse to lay down, and alternative avenues and banquet seasons are ahead. Stay tuned to our Facebook page details are coming.
Remember to keep those lines taut and Take a Kid Fishing and Hunting with your CCA mask on, and social distancing. Also, it’s never too to sign up yourself & family for STAR – State of Texas Angler’s Rodeo.
Don’t forget to share those family at home photos or family fishing memories with us on our CCA San Antonio Facebook Page. CHEERS from “Burnt-O” & Hook’em.

The San Antonio Chapter of CCA was founded in 1979 as the Southwest Chapter of GCCA. From the very beginning, the San Antonio Chapter has been at the forefront of fundraising and policy making for CCA. Although located approximately 130 miles from the coast, the San Antonio Chapter consists of approximately 4,000 men, women and children who fish from Port O’Connor to Port Isabel. It is this diverse membership with ties to such a large portion of the Texas coast that has allowed the San Antonio Chapter to lead the way in CCA conservation efforts. Today, the San Antonio Chapter of CCA is the largest fundraising chapter in the nation, grossing over $1 million in our 2015 banquet. The San Antonio Chapter of CCA welcomes participation in its efforts from those interested in making positive impact on our coastal resources.
We are proud to once again recognize our sponsors for 2016. Many of the companies listed below are returning sponsors from last year.
