The highlight of our September meeting was an open discussion of the Tools to Locate Fish.
From analyzing bait configurations, discussing the importance of surface water temperature,
reviewing the criteria to be applied when selecting bait, and stipulating the many uses of
your sonar unit, members received what they had requested and then some more! A big
“Thank You” to Jonathan Schaeffer for discussing his tools and
strategies for summertime fishing.

Participation in our tournaments is growing! We had sixteen boats competing for the
top prize in August!  Based on a recent trip on the Lake, the September tournament
should be very competitive!

Needless to say, it takes considerable effort to plan and conduct every meeting. The
Officers seek the best speakers available, order and pick-up meals, and clean the
facility after the meeting. A special thank you to Terry Reelitz who donated the paper
flip chart and its related stand. Jeff Craig printed more copies of our Club Book, ordered
100 decals, opened and closed the building and turned on the AC the morning of the meeting!  
Thank You Jeff!!!
And a note of appreciation to those who helped clean the facilities after the meeting!

Fortunate or Luck – Call it either way. The good news is that we were able to get on
Patrick O’Rouke’s schedule for October. Patrick is the State Biologist responsible for
managing Lanier’s Striped Bass and he will discuss everything you want to know about
this subject.  Sure hope everyone can make this meeting!!!!   

It was obvious from the beginning – our members are enjoying the Book!  Whether it’s at the
meetings, emails, and/or telephone calls to the officers, the Book has been getting “rave”
reviews.  The Club has compiled a series of chapters on fishing techniques and formatted
them into a book, which is available to members only.
