Texas Lady Anglers

Ladies get chance to reel in the big one

A new organization known as Texas Lady Anglers has scheduled its initial 2004 Fishing Tournament, and not only will top billing go to three species of fish known as the "Texas Big 3," but there won't be even the slightest trace of discrimination regarding would-be entrants to the meet.

Meaning, while the contest is geared to lady anglers, a classification has been included that will cater to male entrants out there. Essentially, a paid $40 entry fee will allow any lady angler an opportunity at some outstanding prizes for the heaviest individual speckled trout, redfish or flounder, while the same $40 fee will permit guys to compete for an entry percentage cash prize (top three-fish stringer) of the aforementioned species.

As an added bonus, and this is a fantastic concept, Capt. Steve Coffee will present a seminar to meet entrants entitled, "Trout Fishing Techniques for the Galveston Bay," which in itself is worth the price of admission. But added to that will be a tournament dinner, all of which will be held at Leo's Cantina at Bayou Vista.

The seminar is set for Sept. 2 at 8 p.m. and is free to participants, or a nominal $7 entry fee for any nonparticipant wishing to attend.

Sponsors of the gathering are Leo's Cantina, Tops-n-Towers, AMF Star Lanes, American Rodsmiths, Corky Lures, Highland Bayou Bait & Tackle, Wreckers Grill & Bar, Steve Coffee Fishing Charters, Larry Ayala Custom Rods, Islander's Custom Tackle, West Marine, FishingLights Company, Academy Sports & Outdoors, The Hairem Salon, Oshman's Sporting Goods, Fat Boy's Bait Camp, Shimano and Breakwater Marine Electronics.

Tournament fishing is scheduled for Sept. 4 with weight station time from 4 - 6 p.m. at Leo's Cantina.
