The fishing team of Erwin Ward, Ronnie Bose, Bill Von Gonten and Gary Krenek dominated the triple tail division of the The Texas Oilman’s Charity Invitational Fishing Tournament. Above, from left, are: Ward, with the first-place catch weighing 26 pounds, 4 ounces; Bose (no fish in photo) was in third place after the first day; and Krenek, who won third with his 21-pound, 13-ounce catch. Not shown was team member Von Gonten, who won second place with his 23-pound triple tail. Ward notes the team also could have won fourth had that category existed. The team was fishing for triple tail in West Matagorda Bay at this year’s tournament and has fished together - always just for triple tail - for years, Ward said.

The Texas Oilman’s Charity Invitational Fishing Tournament at Matagorda Harbor had about 600 people registered for the three-day event that ended Saturday and raised money for several different charities, including several in Matagorda County. In photo above left, George Deshotels, second from right, shows off the special presentation he received from the tournament for the outstanding service he’s given the event over the years. The presentation included a Texas flag flown over the State Capitol with a certificate signed by State Rep. Herbert Vo of Houston and the tournament’s logo. All four men in the photo are members of Matagorda Masonic Lodge and include, from left: Ron Almy, David Allen, Deshotels and James Snedecor.
