Speckled Truth Old School October Fishing tournament

Old School October 2020

Old School October is a Catch, Photo, Release (CPR) tournament hosted by Speckled Truth to benefit the Release Over 20 initiative. The tournament takes place from October »

All anglers participating in the tournament must use H&H Sparkle Beetle and/or H&H Cocahoe Minnow. One pack of each will be provided with your registration.

The tournament prizes will be issued in a raffle format. For each fish submitted, the angler will have one raffle entry. Upon conclusion of the tournament, all entries will be compiled and prizes will be drawn at random. The more fish you submit equals more raffle entries & therefore higher odds of winning.

There will also be an award for the overall largest trout by length, as well as prizes for largest trout by length from each state: TX, LA, MS, AL, FL, GA, SC, NC, VA, MD.

Once registered, anglers will be mailed a package including two packs of H&H soft plastics and a unique tournament token. This tournament token MUST be included in the picture of all submissions. Without this identifier, your submissions will not be accepted.

The Port of Corpus Christi is already in the midst of work to deepen and widen the Corpus Christi Ship Channel, a massive $327 million undertaking being done in conjunction with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.
No matter the species an angler pursues, the basic building blocks for success are the same; you must figure out where they are and what they are eating. From white trout on Pensacola beaches to Tarpon in Florida Bay to tuna off the Louisiana Coast, finding the fish is the first step. Sit in a roomful of fishermen, and you’ll hear talk about grass, cover, structure, depth and current because those are often the keys to finding fish.
Citing concerns for the region’s aquatic resources, CCA Texas is opposed to the Port of Corpus Christi’s proposed Channel Deepening Project (CDP), permit application number SWG-2019-00067.
