It is a tremendous honor to follow in some “big shoes” to serve as the next CCA-CC chapter president. Thanks for all your hard work, Randy Poelma! The banquet was a smashing success, and hopefully our members, sponsors, and attendees at next year’s banquet will “step up” again. Thank you everyone.

We are looking forward to our Babes on Baffin and Blue Ladies Fishing Tournament, which takes place October 18th at Bluff’s Landing in Corpus Christi. Friday night’s check-in and social will start at 6 pm. The Tournament features a live weigh in / donation bonus with the live fish going to the CCA/CPL Marine Development Center in Corpus Christi. For those not familiar with the Marine Development Center, it is one of the world’s largest state-of-the-art saltwater hatcheries, which provides educational outreach and cutting edge marine science work and produces tens of millions of fingerling redfish and spotted sea trout for release into Texas bays for stock enhancement.
