I have been fishing pretty regular and getting a limit every trip. Fish all good size fish although haven’t caught any real big fish. Lots of birds and using all white lures trolling still. The 2017 Operation-Welcome Home was a huge success, thanks to all the guides who fished it free or for gas. I do not have any huge donators but have great hearts from guides who help out each year. 120 soldiers and 24 guides from Texas and Oklahoma, with discounted lodging from Tanglewood and Little Mineral; VFW 7873, dinner Friday night, 3rd November; fishing 4th, everyone catching fish and getting limits; lunch at Georgetown Baptist Church and final dinner at Elks 238.
Thanks to all who helped and made it possible anothe year this our 8th year. I am out of pocket at the moment but will follow up names of all guides later. Thanks to this site for help in spreading word, and getting us help! Best time now for fishing this lake so get here quick. __________________ jerry d Dorsey

Good Job on organizing Operation Welcome Home, always enjoy volunteering for the trips.
I'm not all that familiar with the process but maybe an online "Go Fund Me" type of fund raising effort would help generate more funds? Might be a deal where it's easy for folks to donate, spreading the word online might reach more people, who knows, just a thought. Keep up the Good Work !!! __________________
