One thing for sure, speed kills, and I'm betting that ICW water was moving pretty good ahead of the storm. We run at night all the time, wife is night shift and I worked nights for years so my body keeps reverting back whether I like it or not. It's definitely a different ball game and easy to get disoriented. I refuse to have even a sip of beer if I'm running at night, sometimes reaction time is all you have... people do some pretty dumb shat at night.
There are definitely lights on the end of the bulkheads just the same as channel markers. I don't know if they may have had one out and that threw off the drivers orientation or something completely different but man you have to be super vigilant at night.

We fish the pier down there at night quite a bit and that whole area is usually lit up pretty well. I have no insight in to what happened but its a good reminder to us all to pay more attention.

I have noticed several friends buying the cheap Chinese light bars and while they look bright, when you get out in the bay/marsh at night you realize they really are lacking. Buying quality lights makes a huge difference whether is it a q-beam or light bar. I prefer to not use lights when I can but there are some times when you cant get around it or at least I cant. In POC the channel markers seem to get hit every few months and I would rather run my lights and cruise in easy to be sure I don't end up on top of one of them.

Agree, lights have a time and a place and entering a channel such as this is a good use for them. These guys with them up on the burn bar or console though, once that light comes on they're stuck with it because that night vision is gone gone. I have mine on the bow and even then just reflection off the water can be bad. I like to flick it on just briefly while running around markers or check for kayaker or whatever, then once out in the main bay I'll leave it on to navigate the swells. It's a Chinese light though so I have a nice battery q-beam ready if needed. I think I may upgrade it next year.

I ran an offshore boat down the ICW from NOLA to Port A a few years ago. Mississippi river flooding, trees and floatsam in sections of the ICW where the bordering swamps poured debris into the main channel.

Ran it no faster than 7-10 mph at night, Q-Beam off and on non-stop. The boat was fully capable of running 35+ mph, twin Yamaha 200s. Even at this very reduced speed, dodging debris and huge boils of Water Lillies, so thick if you ran over them, they fouled the props requiring back down, to blow them out of the blades.

I didn't sleep....literally for 3 days. We ran with no more than 2 on deck - safety and two sets of eyes. One set of eyes - viewed the electronics. The other, the helmsman did not.

We dodged tugs, trees, water lillie fields and only bumped bottom one time, the entire trip. The bump, we had to yield hard to starboard due to a tug/barge taking up center channel - it's effect on the ICW in that section (hard bank on our starboard), pulled water off the bank.

Dodged a head on condition, tug cutting a left bend corner headed east, us on the west bound, barge on our side in a blind turn. Had to gun it and aim for the port bank, completely opposite of our side and right of way. Rack was holding on with a Q-Beam, beaming the bank as I was glued on the bow of the tug - looming down on us.

Closest I've come to getting plowed over......night time running.

I found out the hard way how scary it is when the led goes out when you are trying to run through a long set of channel markers. I knew exactly where I was going but there was no moon and heavy cloud cover. You could not see anything and came around the corner and everything went dark while underway headed to the duck blind. Saving grace was I had a headlamp clipped on my waders and threw that up quickly. It was no bueno, no cheap LEDs for me anymore.

Has anybody heard how hard the storm hit the Land Cut? A friend of mine has a cabin on one of the spoils islands on the north end. There are some nice/new camps but lots of ramshackle ones that looked like they were barely standing to start with.. Just wondering if it blew hard enough to knock them into the ICW

I saw a little set of pics and videos from down there on facebook. The guy who posted it said there was a whole lot of damage to the floaters and camps down there. His video and pics also showed there were a lot of them that were ok too.

Once the wind drops it only takes a day or so for the water to clear back up. Usually even less time than that. I don't know about down there but the wind here dropped yesterday and dropped even more today.

Call your guide and see what he thinks but if it were me I'd go fish.

You have to dim your electronics so youíre not blinded, light bars will mess up your night vision as well. Depth perception is messed up at night. Itís easy to mess up, Iíve put my boat on the bank twice. Lol

Ok so here is a new twist. Garmin was hacked last Thursday. The idiot Russian wants 10million from garmin and they have been down 5 days so far.

Supposedly they had light issues and went off of Garmin GPS which was wrong.
There is more to the story but thatís all I am sharing. No it was not me.

I still struggle with several thoughts. Why were they on a boat that late at night in those weather conditions? As I understand they left a gathering in POC to head back to the Sanctuary. Wind was already puffing very strong due to Hurricane Hannah in the Gulf. Also, how do you not know the location of those bulkheads if you are familiar with the Sanctuary and POC which I have am led to believe they were. It is really sad someone had to lose their life. I hope we learn more to the story. For now, its been a conversation starter with my two teenage boys who are starting to navigate on their own.

Complacency - this is certainly a big issue.

An example of this.....I used to run/work with a bunch of Coast Guard Helicopter pilots. A standing rule in Alaska, flying rotary, you have 1 year to fly up there before they ground you and send the pilot back to the lower 48.

Ice, fog and mountains - flying by the seat of their pants in adverse conditions....when the pilot becomes relaxed and somewhat comfortable, after weeks of pucker factor - it's time to rotate the pilot out.

Yeah so it's basically effected online accounts and a fitness app and the company's internal files it seems, it's not like it affects satellite position location or wirelessly downloads incorrect maps to people's devices.

edit: I realize we're all speculating and reaching for some logical reason this happened since no details are being released and no statements form the 4 living individuals have been made public. If we're left to speculation, usually the most simple explanation is the one that ends up being the case.

Supposed to have occurred a little after midnight, they were obviously moving.
The other four people are out of the hospital with minor injuries currently.

Pics of wrecked SCB



One person is dead after a boating accident in Port O’ Connor around midnight, July 25.
Calhoun County Game Wardens responded to a boating accident near the Sanctuary entrance and the Intercoastal Waterway.
There were five people on the boat. Three people were injured, while one male in his 30s was found dead 600 yards from the boating accident site, according to Calhoun County Game Warden Chelsea Bailey.
A United States Coast Guard helicopter located the body approximately at 2:30 a.m.
Texas Game Wardens, USCG, Calhoun County Sheriff’s Office and Port Lavaca Fire Department assisted in the recovery.

Land cut was hit very hard. 115 mph winds and isolated tornados. Lots of damage. I rent Capt from Capt Justin with laguna adventure his land cut cabin is pretty much a total lose separated walls from the deck and washed it up on another cabin. He also has another cabin on the south side of the mouth of Baffin and hit was hit hard has well. Order sad to see the hard work that goes into those cabin just trashed like that. But thatís Mother Nature and a chance you take.

So not alcohol. Possibly gps which I find unlikely that we will ever know that. I mean if the US govt cant shut down a Russian hacker and Garmin wont pay. How is the insurance, tpwd or Calhoun county etc gonna find out if they unit was haywire?

It seems to me anything other than that shouldn't be a big secret....

Back to fishing.

We fished the Quintana Jetties on Sunday for a few hours. Tossed the big rods with live piggy perch and no takers. Had one good hit but missed the hook.

Great day on the water today all by ourselves. Tide is super high right now and made things a little interesting. Caught around 30 trout throwing lures, best choice being down south pearl chartreuse. Caught a 26.5Ē on croaker and tried to release her but she wouldnít go

Came over the causeway esrlier and the water looked decent. It was a couple feet high but the color was decent. Will be fishing the rest of the week so will see how it goes.

My guide just called me back and said he got all his trout in a couple hours this morning so that made me feel a lot better about going

Howdy - checking in with this group. I’m back in the game with a new CC / heading down to Aransas Pass on Sunday to make the maiden salt water voyage and see if we can’t wade up on some reds for a few days - I really need the R&R!

Nice work after the storm Josh!

Wish I could get back down. Found a ton of reds in Brown and Root flats last week (pre-storm) but they where hard to catch. Iíd like to explore lighthouse with all this water.

Yeah the Garmin thing is just people trying to pull strings to come up with some sort of explanation.

Question fellars, myself and a few buddies are interested in doing a flounder gigging trip. We do quite a bit of fishing but none of us have ever gone gigging and don't really know where to start.

Are there flounder guides out of Galveston? I went to high school with the owner of Night Moves out of Freeport but he's booked up for the weekend we need.

Any leads in the Freeport to Galveston area would be appreciated. Really don't want to go down south if possible. We all live in Cypress and looking to drive home the same night/morning.

Talasek Guide service in Matagorda is the best I can do.
