Moving forward; for those of you that aren't ready to lay down the rods yet we have the first winter tournament coming up in a few weeks.  We are fishing Greers Ferry on November 5th blasting off at 7:00 from Devil's Fork.  I really hope to see a lot of familiar faces, and would be thrilled to see new.  If anyone would be willing to help set up the scales, or help with anything at all just let me know and I would be happy to have it!

Fifth Place

We conclude the year with another trip to Conway and the father son duo of Blake and Mike Anschultz came in with the heaviest bag and heaviest fish for the second consecutive year.  Bob and Sawyer found a good sack of fish landing them in second place, and Kenny and Jeremy came in raking in the last of the bonus money in third place.  

I want to say thanks to a few guys for taking up the slack and running the show when I was out.  Things ran very smooth this year and mostly because of the help from a few guys in the club.  Blake took the reigns when I was out and made sure everything was well taken care of.  Jesse and Nicky stepped up and took over the scales and knocked that out of the park.  Guys, thanks again it wouldn't have worked without you.

I plan on setting down with the committee at the first of the year, I will call each of you with more details on the date closer to the time.  Be thinking of ways to improve the club, any idea you have I want to hear it.  

The regular club meeting will follow the committee meeting to go over details and vote on any changes that come up.  I will let you know of a date closer to then.

Thanks for everyone patience this year and the participation.

Something New

With the end of our regular season coming to an end next month it has been brought to my attention that quite a few of our guys aren't exactly ready to put their boats up for the winter.
With this interest, we are currently in the process of getting a winter series set up, we will try and have one tournament a month from November to February. No promises as of yet but within the next few weeks we should have it pretty close to being set.
We don't have dates, locations, or any of the specifics yet; however, we do know they will be open tournaments. 
Any input from our guys would be much appreciated. If you have ideas you would like to discuss get with me or Blake, message me on here, or give me a call!
