    The Redfish Bay Chapter continues to have a great year, thanks to our board, volunteers and members! The 2017 Redfish Bay Chapter Annual Banquet exceeded our expectations with higher attendance and revenue than previous years. The Take-a-Kid-Fishing event is always a wonderful time, with well over 100 fisherpersons. This is an annual event on the first weekend of June, and it is just for the kids; it includes a shrimp boil on Friday night and awards ceremony and hot dogs on Saturday – the only rule is that kids have fun! Our General Membership Meeting in March had great attendance and was very entertaining with Jay Watkins as a speaker – our thanks again to Jay.

    Look for more information on the Annual Beeville Fish Fry. It is traditionally on the Thursday night before dove season starts. More information to follow in e-blasts. – Norman Oates
