Joe Tex was indeed The Man

Joseph W. Tiexiera has passed.

It’s a two sided function of my age: people I know are passing away with an uncomfortable regularity that is only partially balanced by a rekindling of the memories I have from being with them. This past week, Joe Tex departed peacefully at age 84 after a life well lived for sure. 

We met Joe a few years ago, on a sweet July morning when even though I arrived early and packed everything needed for a few hours of striper fishing, Joe started our first meeting with a long swipe of elevator eyes over me and my gear. I knew I was out-gunned and while that made me a little apprehensive at first, inside I was smiling. 

Joe was a man of many talents and fishing certainly was one of them.

If you have a few minutes, please give this Fish Wrap story about Joe from a few years ago a read. I barely scratched the surface of this man’s life.

It’s just one day, but it was pure magic.

Thank you Joe.

No Striper Quota Transfers

Striped bass are under recreational and commercial pressure and subject to changing regulations. We here at Fish Wrap are saying no to transferring striper quotas as a way to circumvent conservation efforts. If one area did not catch their quota, that’s great for the stripers. See you next year. Let ’em swim.

Some Salt Pond Nights

Some nights, fishing in a salt pond, I am amazed by the magic all around and occasionally catching some fish. Some Salt Pond Nights is all about being free, quiet, enlightened and fortunate in a busy world.

Surfcasting Around the Block II

Surfcasting Around the Block II gathers stories and counsel from many of these characters, combines them with his personal anecdotes then ferries readers to Aquidneck Island for similar beaches and potentials. This is a welcomed return to the island and to his friends who live and love to catch fish.
