Spellbound – that’s how I would characterize our members and guests at the August meeting
while Jonathan Schaefer discussed lures and the many variables affecting Striped Bass on
fresh water lakes. His presentation included terminal tackle, jigging methods for various types
of artificials, and the types of rod/reel combinations for these applications. Without a doubt,
we will have Jonathan return to thoroughly discuss the “variables”, a most intriguing subject
matter. Also, a big Thank You to Jim and Lisa Farmer for making a video of the presentation.
“Over the Edge” – that’s how folks accurately described Jim Farmer’s perfect presentation on
Lead Core Trolling made at our July meeting. My prediction that the meeting would be “BIG”
came true in the first five minutes of the dissertation. Power Points, videos, and Jim’s
“to-the-point” description of trolling methods and terminal tackle wowed the crowd, which BTW,
included over 60 very interested fishermen. Jim brought along some of his jigs and flashy
attachments and fully explained how to use them. His extensive knowledge coupled with 35
years of experience of fishing for Striped Bass clearly puts him among the best!
THE CLUB’S BOOK ON STRIPER FISHING
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.
FELLOWSHIP AT OUR AUGUST MEETING
Both the members and the officers are using this time prior to the meeting to acquaint
themselves to guests and new members. It’s hard to beat chicken wings and sweet tea!
I hope everyone is enjoying this time of fellowship!
SEPTEMBER MEETING STARTS AT 6PM
In looking back over the summary of the Questionnaires, it is without a doubt that our
members want to learn more about: “How to Locate Fish”. As a matter of fact, the vote
was overwhelming. So, I thought I would compile a small team to tackle this subject.
Jonathan Schaefer has accepted my invitation to discuss the factors he uses in the summer
to locate fish and I will try my best to help you with the “tried-true-and tested” methods
during the late fall, winter, and early spring.
