"Galveston Redfish Conclusion" | OIFC | 08/17/15
 

This report is late in posting.  Many may have heard but in case not, see this link:  http://theredfishseries.com/tour-loses-top-angler/

 

Surreal situation.  Around 1pm on Saturday on my way back to the weigh in approximately 115 miles from Galveston in Sabine lake I saw two tower boats congregated and a third boat off in the distance.  This was unusual seeing boats together so I ran to them and what I saw next will be etched in mind for a long time.  One boat had three men in it.  The angler, the camera man and another man laying on the deck of the boat.  At first I thought there must be a mechanical problem and he is laying down trying to fix something.  This was quickly dispelled as I saw the man laying there motionless.  Just minutes before my arrival another tournament angler had been running across the lake and saw Manny's boat stopped.  He ran to it and saw there was no one on board.  He quickly called the tournament director and asked if Manny had called in to say he was riding in with someone else.  The director informed this angler he had not.  The angler immediately proceeded up wind of the boat and within minutes found Manny Perez face down in the water.  The angler and camera man brought him on board and began CPR.  I'm not sure the time line but at this time another tournament angler pulled up and supported the effort.  A couple minutes later I pulled up and at this time it was evident there was nothing else to be done.  There is no official word on what happened to Manny to cause him to come out of his boat.  He was wearing a kill switch and a life vest and that's how he was located.  He was brought into a marina nearby and met by paramedics where they once again tried to revive but to no avail.  

We all three proceeded back to Galveston less Manny.  At the tournament site the field of top 10 anglers, tournament staff and cameramen were in a state of shock.  We had all spent time with Manny that morning and now he was gone.  When they brought Manny into the paramedics the angler that found him asked the wildlife officers to weigh his catch as this is what Manny would have wanted.  He had 24.07lbs, one of the biggest bags of the week.  Manny went out smiling after a great day of fishing.  Back at the tournament site the remaining 9 anglers quietly and independently released their fish back into the water.  No weigh in was going to happen today except for Manny's fish.  

Please read the link I posted to learn a little about who Manny Perez was.  

As always I anticipate time will heal the wounds of all of us anglers.  At somepoint I will be struck with the motivation to recap my experience on the Elite Series One Man event in Galveston and the year in full.  For now, it just doesn't seem to matter much.

"Backwater Report" | Tiberias - 22' | 08/17/15
 

I have recieved a few phone calls wondering about my long absence from reporting. I am still here, it has just been a tough few weeks with my son making it to the Dixie Youth World Series and trying to make it to his games. I have also been plagued by mechanical problems with both my boats therefore reporting was put on the way side. The fishing has been sporadic on the days that I have fished. One day you will catch a few speckled trout along with a bunch of croakers. The next day a few black drum along with a bunch of croakers. The next a few flounder along with a bunch of croakers. I don't won't to even discuss our redfish fishery right now. Thier are a few small pockets of reds hanging around, but you better hit them just right. Hopefully, more redfish will start to move in around the inlets with the movement of the fall mullet run. It is getting that time of year. The bottom line is fishing is just that, FISHING. You just never know until you go. You might wax them or barely catch a few for the dinner table. I will say that we have ran very few trips without catching something lately. It might be a bunch of croakers, but that is good action when nothing else is going on. See ya on the water!

"HT Elite Redfish- Galveston Day Two" | OIFC | 08/14/15
 

Pleased to report there will be a Day Three for me for the first time ever on the HT Elite Series.  I will save the play by play report for my trip home but the short story is I made the cut and will be competing again tomorrow.  I moved from 12th to 8th place today with an almost identical day one and day two weight.  There were some hiccups and hurdles like usual today but I made it back almost in one piece by a whisker and put 3 decent fish on the scales.  The win is out of reach but I'm going to give it a full effort and see where things fall.  My fish are getting tougher to catch each day so I'm hopeful I can squeeze a few more tomorrow.  It'll be another 130 mile run one way.  Thank goodness it's over after tomorrow.  My body feels like I've been in the Octagon with Rhonda Rousy.  Detailed blood, guts and glory report will be coming tomorrow or Sunday.  As always there is an adventure story to tell.

"Wahoo Action" | Do Work / OIFC | 08/13/15
 

Judging from the pictures I'm seeing and the stuf I'm reasing the wahoo bite is on.  I sold a customer a case of ballyhoo yesterday.  When we checked them out I noticed they were some of the best looking ballyhoo we've had in a while.  I'd suggest fishing to the south.

"HT Elite Redfish- Galveston" | OIFC | 08/13/15
 

Judging by the inactivity on the fishing report page either everybody is too hot and fishing is terrible or we're all catching so hard there's no time for a report!  I'm out of touch this week with fishing scene at OIFC but I can report in on my latest excursion on the redfish trail.

 

Today was the first day of The Elite Redfish Series Galveston, TX event.  I'm a LONG WAY FROM HOME!  This is my first time in Texas hunting redfish, or any fish for that matter.  But just like everywhere else I go, when it comes tournament time I pack as much fuel on board as possible and get as far away from the check out as possible.  Never fails.  After scouting all week in the marsh around Orange, Texas off Lake Sabine I was left with no choice but to go back for tournament day.  I wasn't on much but it was the only option I had that I felt like I could put 3 fish together.  I'm allowed to weigh one redfish up to 28" and two up to 27".  What I thought was going to be a piece of cake 100 mile run turned into about 130 miles with all the twists and turns.  I figured out that I ran for 6+ hours today and fished for just over 2.  Makes perfect sense right?  Wonder how many redfish I passed over today.  

Anyway, in my brief time fishing I was able to find the fish again and worked through several overs to finally get my 3- 24.5", 26" and 27.5".  Really needed to upgrade that one.  The fish are very skinny right now which is odd.  I weighed 19.62lbs and am currently in 12th place.  The mission for this event was to have a respectable showing so that I would qualify for the Championship tournament held in March.  I was 7th in points coming into the event and need to stay in the top 10 to qualify.  So as much as I'm not looking forward to retracing my footsteps from today, I'm left with little other choices.  This is the last event of the year for me so it's time suck it up and go for the gusto.  Day two weigh in will be around 4:15pm eastern at www.theredfishseries.com.

"Cast Netting 101" | Do Work / OIFC | 08/02/15
 

Team Do Work/OIFC Jr. Angler Camdyn seems to be putting on a clinic as the loads and throws the cast net on some pogies in the Eastern Channel today.  Camdyn was fishing with her dad Jeff and friends Jay and Jacob Utley.  They caught some small trout but said they saw some huge red drum.  The lunar tide allowed the team to navigate way back up the channel, but Capt. Jeff Beck said when the tide started falling the back waters disappeared.
