Fishing Tournament Rescheduled!

Thank you for your patience while the Committee considered options for the fishing tournament after Hurricane Harvey. We are pleased to announce that we are moving forward with a new date, October 27 and 28 at Doc's in Corpus Christi. The venue is open and ready for business, we have secured room blocks at two hotels for participants in need of accommodations and the fishing guides we have booked are eager to get back on the water with our anglers. Fishing is expected to be exceptional in late October! Registration is now open...hope to see you all there! If you had previously registered please confirm that you will attend.

In conjunction with the fishing tournament we are planning to aid in the hurricane recovery efforts, details to follow.

We are grateful for your continued support!

Hurricane Harvey

Our thoughts and prayers are with the people and businesses of the Gulf Coast region including many TACCA members and friends that have been impacted by this catastrophic storm. We hope for those affected that things resume to as close to normal as soon as possible.

We appreciate your patience and understanding during this difficult time.
