Wow, what a great way to kick off the HSJAA 1st of three camps that we planned on having. We had many new faces and plenty of old ones.
The weather had us locked in on our first day, so we made the best of it and helped a flounder contest right in the marina at Top Water Grill. Unreal how many flounder where caught. The rain let up, so the rest of the week went as planned. The best guides in the Galveston Bay Area donated their time to take these kiddos out and see who can catch the biggest fish in many categories for the week-long contest.
Anglers participated in casting contests in spinning and baitcasting reels. If they couldn’t cast with a bait cast reel, then one of the helpful HSJAA volunteers would provide them with some one on one time to tighten up the young angler's skills. With all the week-long contests over everyone was ready for the Friday tournament, parent fish fry and awards ceremony for the weeks events plus the final days tournament! Great to meet all the new parents and see the old ones!
Look forward to a great 2019 kickoff to HSJAA camp season, look for the camp application in December at www.hsjaa.com
