Greetings from Texas

The wind is howling about 45 mph today and it is 55 degrees

on Mustang Island just out of Corpus Christie.

The Sheepshead are biting if you could get over to them.

Monday and Tuesday we caught 50 Sheepshead (delicious!)

a half dozen Vermillion Snapper, 4 Sand Trout and a

pretty big Black Drum.

These Sheepshead are 3 to 5 or 6 pounds and fight to the

death. They look like the nasty sheephead we have up

nort but they have 3 or 4 black verticle stripes along the

body. The Vermillions are smaller fish related to the

Red Snappers that are so famous (also Delicious). The

Sand Trout look like Trout but have a very big mouth.

The Black Drum weighed about 15 pounds and is not real

big for a Black Drum (also very good eatin).

After just a few of these Sheepshead I was ready to

take a break. Very strong fish and we use fairly light

tackle to battle em with.

Live Shrimp is the bait of choice and until now I had never

touched a live Shrimp.

I figured I could get popular with the locals by using some

good FM humor so I asked the guy at the bait store if he

thought we needed an extention..............I dont think

he understood ( these Texans are reallllllllll slow)

That's it for now. Gotta go..more Texas Holdem to play.

Best regards from summer camp

Sounds like you're having a blast Curty, good for you. Wiskers and I had the River Pro out on the Rainy on Tuesday. Fishing was a bit slow, but it sure was awesome being on open water the first day of Spring. We'll be looking forward to some pics, and some video from ya when you get back. Make sure you have enough fun for all of us.

As long as I have your ear, I've been meaning to ask you if you'ld be interested in golfing league on Thursday nights with me this year in Karlstad?

I didnt bring the movie camera and I havent taken a photo

yet (I am such and idiot).

We have been fishing near a marina anchored up next to this

steel wall, a very weathered steel wall. Fishing over some

very rocky, snaggy bottom. You couldnt even drink coffee

because you would get hung up or if a fish came by

you needed to be holding your fishing pole.

I planned on a picture day but the wind has been howling

and we have not fished the last two days. We go home

tomorrow. You will have to take my word for it...the

fish are huge!!!!!!

I golf on Tuesday with the men of Newfolden. If that

falls thru I would like to golf on Thursday. I need to

Golf pretty early..and be home by 7:30. (8pm bedtime

ya know) I guess I am really not much fun.

Headin home 6am Friday....

So long from Texas!
