We had our Houston area CCA Interchapter challenge Saturday and a good time was had by all. Lucky to say the San Jacinto Chapter finaly took first place with 32 something lbs weighed in. Northwest Chapter came in second with 29 something. And Bay Area Chapter was third this year. We weighed in our 2 reds, 5 Trout and 1 flounder. Bay Area has won this thing for the last two years so it was nice to finally de-throne them. I had the pleasure of fishing with one of our chapter members Mark Hooker who took me to Chocolate Bay. Mark knew the area pretty well, I have never fished Chocolate so it was nice to go to a different place. We had a very good day compaired to many others we talked to at weigh-in. Action was pretty slow for us but the fish were all quality fish. I managed 1 25" Red first thing on a Top water and Mark picked up a couple of 17" Trout. Alittle later we managed to pick up 3 21" and 1 19" Trout on dark colored soft plastics. On the way in we tried one last time on a reef we fished earlier were I caught the Red and Mark picked up another nice 25" Red. Talked to some of the others that had more action but smaller fish. One other team member Eric Renteria was fishing Choclate also and came in with 2 Reds, 1 going around 27". The 19 1/2" flounder came from Charlie German fishing Trinity Bay. Most of the teams were fishing East Bay and caught quite a few fish but not many of good size. All in all it was a great time, the fish fry was very good. Thanks Capt. Kyle for your cooking expertise. Good friends, good fishing and good food, it don't get no better than that. Hope someone will post some pics. My camera was having a bad day.
