As November rolls into the Texas Coast, we often find ourselves complaining and contemplating about the weather. Is a cold front going to run the fish out of their hiding spots? Will a gale wind keep me off the water? Should I be ready to strip to my shorts by noon?
November also gives us a reason to reflect on things to be thankful for. It was only 2 years when Hurricane Harvey disrupted the coast. The flats underwent some dramatic changes. Loss of vegetation in some areas is continuing to affect the viability of long-term habitat recovery. In other instances, we see natural healing of our shorelines.
Part of that healing is respecting the resource, respecting each other, and respecting the law. When FlatsWorthy talks about the Code of Angler Respect, we see every day how important our mission is. It’s not just some fancy words, it is a way of life here on the coast. We want to leave our flats and shallows better than we found them for future generations of anglers and outdoorsman to enjoy.
We are thankful for our members, too. Members like YOU. Members who not only display your FlatsWorthy sticker with pride, but go out and talk about our mission, share with friends and family about respecting the flats. We couldn’t do what we do without our members.
