Our members are still talking about the presentation made at our September meeting
– “Tools to Locate Fish”.
It was so popular that the materials and notes were added to the Club’s Book, By The
Book. Some of the tools that were discussed include: the importance of surface water
temperature; bait configurations as shown on your sonar; criteria for selecting specific types
of bait and their respective sizes; and how to best use your sonar unit throughout the year.
CLUB’S BOOK: By the Book
A huge Thank You to the members who participated in writing the Club’s book! The book
contains chapters on trolling, bait and bait maintenance, using planer boards, flat lines, etc.
The good news is that it is FREE to all members. If you are considering joining our Club,
our book would represent one more additional reason to sign up.
OCTOBER MEETING – IT WAS OFF THE CHARTS
We had to bring out some extra chairs for our October meeting. A lot of folks (almost 70)
came to listen to Patrick O’Rouke, the DNR Biologist responsible for the fish in Lanier.
Patrick focused on the considerations and procedures used to maximize the survival rate of
Striper fry placed in Lanier every May. Together with Chris Looney, DNR Fisheries
Technician, members and guests were extremely pleased to learn that the steps taken by
this dynamic duo have resulted in an above average survival rate for the fry placed in the Lake
in May of 2013 and that those fry are now about 14 inches in length. To Patrick and Chris –
Thanks a Million!!! Moving along – What did you think about that home-cooked meal prepared
by our VP – Keith Prather? It was a huge “winner”! Thank You, Keith.
Our November meeting will be held on Tuesday the 4th. We will announce
more details as they become available.
