Redfish and the Texas Coastal Conservation Association

This Redfish was shipped down to the Texas Chapter of the Coastal Conservation Association for a fundraising event where it will be put on the auction block. We are offering a very limited number of 32″ x 24″ prints, and proceeds will benefit the CCA.

The purpose of CCA is to advise and educate the public on conservation of marine resources. The objective of CCA is to conserve, promote, and enhance the present and future availability of those coastal resources for the benefit and enjoyment of the general public.

Thanks to Sporting Classics Daily for publishing the journal and painting.

The journal story was born during a fantastic cast & blast trip in Louisiana aboard The Dogwood, originally a US Coast Guard vessel that has been repurposed as a comfortably appointed lodge for Southern Way Charters. A big thanks to Captain Greg Moon of Louisiana Fishing Charters, who made sure a good time was had by all.
