Offshore Fishing near Galveston Island, Texas

As a service consultant for a major electrical distribution company in Houston, Texas, Paul Katsus works to support his clients by aiding in the design process of electrical systems. In his free time, Paul Katsus enjoys fishing. Many fishing opportunities are available along Texas’ over 600 miles of coastline. Both accomplished and rookie anglers can score a trophy catch just 45 minutes from Houston at Galveston Island. Short trips into the bay can be chartered, or for the more adventurous fishermen, larger boats can go 30 miles to 100 miles offshore to find larger catches. Depending on the season and specific location, red snapper, sailfish, marlin, shark, wahoo, and tuna can be caught in the gulf. Excellent for eating, red snapper can grow up to 30 pounds. The distinctive sailfish averages 40 pounds to 60 pounds, while the impressive blue marlin can grow up to 16 feet long and weigh close to 500 pounds.

Becoming a Better Fisher

Paul Katsus, an experienced professional within the energy sector, most recently designed electrical distribution facilities and helped customers determine their electrical needs as a service consultant for a major Texas energy distribution company. Outside of work, Paul Katsus enjoys spending his time fishing.

Becoming a better fisher is often easier than people think. The foundation of fishing is fairly simple, but many people engaging in the sport become their own worst enemy by over-complicating things, going out for a trip with a negative attitude, or allowing themselves to become overly frustrated during the trip.

Once a fisher is in the right state of mind, it becomes possible to focus on the actual techniques. It is common for some fishers to quickly cast and catch a fish without fully thinking about landing it, which may result in the fish getting free. For fishers trying to decrease the number of fish they lose, thinking the entire process through before casting a line can be a great help.

Another frequent problem that fishers have is focusing on improving their casting distance without first improving accuracy. Practicing distance casting is an important part of becoming a better fisher on its own, but won't achieve much if the hook does not actually hit the target. Fishers may also want to consider using brightly colored fishing lines when they are performing longer casts. Brighter lines are easier to keep track of and help fishers cast accurately.

Texas' Path to Statehood

A service consultant with a major energy distribution group, Paul Katsus lives and works in Texas. Paul Katsus maintains an interest in the history and culture of his home state. Texas became the 28th state of the Union in 1845, only six months after the federal government annexed the previously independent republic. Once a part of Mexico, Texas began welcoming non-Mexican settlers in the 1820s. A number of predominantly American communities sprang up over the subsequent years, and their residents resisted Mexican control. Texas declared its independence in 1836 and secured its autonomy with a victory over the Mexican Army at San Jacinto. Fearing retaliation by Mexico, Texas petitioned for U.S. statehood on two separate occasions. The United States Congress ultimately passed a joint resolution, which came under review by a constitutional convention in the summer of 1845. The convention approved the resolution and put it to public vote, through which Texan citizens submitted their own approval. Congress approved the Joint Resolution to Admit Texas as a State on December 9, and formal transfer of government became final the following February.
