Not having to walk back to the boat after that long wade makes for more time spent fishing for my customers, and we left'em still biting.

I'm glad you two had a good time, ... that's what it's all about.







Hope you and the family made it safe through the storm

Thanks Barry.

Our home was Blessed and it received some minor roof damage from Hurricane Harvey which resulted in a leak in the kitchen, but rest of home is in good condition.

Here is an update on the rest of Rockport from our Mayor.

Letter today from Rockport Mayor Wax said:


" Texas Task Force 1 has completed their door to door on site evaluation ... approximately 30 - 40% of homes and business are completely destroyed. Another 30% are substandard and cannot be rebuilt. ... Approximately 2,000 electric workers are in the city. They're fixing power lines, traffic lights and other infrastructures so we will be able to "join the grid" once AEP is able to transmit to Rockport ... "

Rockport will waste no time rebuilding I can promise you that.

Thanks for the update Rex. And great that you didn't have any more damage. I was there Sunday to check my RV, and it was the only one in our park with no damage. I chained it to the ground and slab and it didn't move or get hit by falling trees.
As I suspected, once Harvey headed to Houston, Rockport would be virtually out of the news. I saw a convoy of about twenty power company bucket trucks passing thru Kingsville Sunday morning. A welcome sight!

Hoping to get back by the weekend, if we have power. Oh, well, I'll just have to fish the Laguna Madre for a while.

God Blessed our Home ... our Prayers were answered ... some old oak trees snapped in half, some interior ceiling damage from rain being driven into our home through the shingles ... once again, I am truly humbled by the 'Power of Prayer', my Faith in God and its influence on my Life.

Grinder, I was just about to start a thread to check in on you. So glad that the Lord delivered you through the storm. My thoughts and prayers have been going toward the Rockport community the last few days. Hope you're able to get back to fishing soon!

The Rockport bay system is yielding some nice fish in shallow water while wade fishing without a boat.

Tim sent me this pic of a big red he tagged that was caught in 2.5 ft. of the ol' SaltH20 on Saturday morning at one of the Locations in the WadeFish Rockport book.

That sounds like FUN to me.

WTG TIM !!!
