Kayak Classic in Port Arthur Preview

Of course the fishing is always good in Port Arthur with bayous, backwaters and canals but did you know some of the best food in SE Texas or in the state of Texas for that matter can be found at local restaurants and taverns around town? Restaurants like the Schooner have been around since 1947! You don't get to stay in business that long without having some great menu items and fabulous customer service. Family owned and operated for 70+ years the tradition continues. As the sign shows, fresh seafood and perfect steaks are what they are known for but if the weather has you hunting some good for the soul, food, then gumbo may be right up your alley, and you won't be disappointed.

National Championship

Victoria Pro, Mark Robinson takes another National Championship. When Mark Robinson showed up in South Padre Island for a few days of practice he already had a slight advantage having fished multiple other Elite tournaments in these same waters but what he wasn't expecting was to be greeted by such a finicky bite from the usually very receptive South Texas Redfish. As one would expect Mark made his normal milk runs to check locations that he had previously fished with some success and while he found fish and a lot of them, the sizes were smaller than usual and they were extremely tight lipped.

Rookie of the Year

Port O'connor pro Will Granberry is on his first season on the Elite Redfish Series was looking head long at a chance to win The National Championship. "I just fish simple, if I do what I do and get what I want, you can bet the next day or days I will be doing the same thing." Will told a very loud crowd at the day 2 weigh in taking place at the Painted Marlin at JIm's Pier in South Padre Island. While it would not be a National Championship Title in his first season on the Elite Solo Tour and his first time ever fishing in head to head competitions without teammates or draw partners, Will equipped himself well by finishing off his rookie season in fine style placing 2nd at the National Championship and winning the Hytorc of Texas Rookie of the Year Award.
