Jason Gatts Financial Group July 18, 19, 20, 2013

Jason and his customers came from all parts of Texas, Grapevine, Dallas, San Antonio, Austin and Houston. We left port on the Chairman II Thursday morning. Breakfast was served under way and our mooring location was Hitchcock Bay East.

Jason had set up a fishing contest for the trip. Every walleye over 15” was measured and recorded for each guest. The first morning 3” of rain fell by 12:30 PM then the shies cleared. Fishing was wild in the downpour. It was tough to record in the rain but the boys got it done. Obviously pictures were hard to take too.

Day two brought high winds pushing the low-pressure system out. Day two was tough fishing as many of the locations we were fishing had way too much wind and waves. We did catch plenty to put on a nice shore lunch for Jason, Steve, Jerry, Mike and Mike, Jerry, and Scott.

Day three started out with beautiful weather and more incredible walleye fishing. Slip sinkers and 48” snells tipped with leeches or slip bobbers tipped with a leech was killer! 


At the end of the trip there was 3300” of walleyes caught. Unreal considering day two was limited. Chef Jim laid it on wonderful, he is not bashful. He served our Texas  guest’s ribs and chicken on the first night. They were delighted!

I wish we had shot more pictures but 35mm cameras don’t’ like rain.

A big thank you to Jason, Steve, Brian, Jerry, Mike and Mike, and Scott. We can’t do it without guests like you!

Is this the largest spinning reel back lash ever?
