    I am happy to report that the Matagorda Bay Chapter is in full swing for the year! We have finalized a raffle boat and will be printing tickets soon. This year’s boat will be a fully rigged 25’ Dagrel Kuda powered by a 250 Yamaha SHO. The boat sits on a double axel Coastal Trailer. Cleve Ford and the guys at Dargel did a great job rigging the boat. Polasek Construction has once again stepped up to be a Boat Sponsor – They have been on each of our chapter boats since we started the Boat Sponsor option a few years back. Be on the lookout for the boat around the area and a chance to buy a ticket. If you are not in the area to buy a boat ticket, call Wesley Smolik at (979) 543-2753. Be sure to mark your calendars for our 2017 Matagorda Bay Chapter Annual Banquet on June 29 at the El Campo Civic Center!

    The chapter’s 12th Annual Lil’ Salties Fishing Blowout is scheduled for May 14, 2017 at the Matagorda Harbor. Chapter members should receive entry forms in the mail. Parents, be sure to get them filled out and mailed back ASAP so we can plan another great tournament! Last year we had a great year with 225 kids coming out for a day of fun. Every entry receives a prize bag, trophy and t-shirt. If you are interested in donating to this great event, or have any questions, contact Lynn Staff ( or Thomas Gold (

    Feel free to contact me if you have any questions about the chapter. – Chad Hensley (979) 543-2734
