Back in the Saddle Again

February 2010

During the fall and winter the team took time off to spend with family and friends. Time with our children is an important factor to our team. It allows us to bond with our families and teach them new things as well as an appreciation for the great outdoors. We strongly encourage all of our fans and friends to take time to reflect on how valuable our youth is and how easily influenced children are in the wrong environment. It is our strong opinion that by teaching our children to appreciate the great outdoors, it allows them to have growth as individuals, goals to look forward to and values that will be instilled in them for the rest of their lives rather than risking them to be influenced by the dangers that lurk in our communities. More so, the reward alone of seeing a child’s joy as he or she catches that first fish or shoots that first deer is a memory that will be cherished by all who experience it.

Over the fall, however, Captain Lee experienced a set back as he was on a trip out of East Matagorda. While running his boat thru the intra-coastal waterway, he struck a dredging pipe that was stretched across the canal. Many of you know that the intra-coastal canal is a waterway that should not have any obstructions whatsoever. It appears that a dredging company was performing some maintenance work on the waterway and failed to properly submerge their equipment. As Captain Lee was traveling at pre dawn hours, the pipe was not visible, nor marked at the waters’ surface. Fortunately, Lee was traveling at a low rate of speed and no one aboard was injured. However, his boat was severely damaged to the point of irreparable damage. The transom was completely cracked down to the floor of the boat and the stringer system was compromised as well. In addition, the motor also suffered substantial damage. To the best of our knowledge, this same situation has occurred 3 other instances at the same location. At this point the situation is left in the hands of the insurance companies. We hope Lee gets back on the water soon.

Beginning in March the Redfish series tournament circuit kicks off for Team Fish’N Addiction. We look forward to getting back on the water again to compete in this sport we thoroughly enjoy.
