CURRENTS – October/November 2019

Summer is finally coming to a close and to recap, the fishing this year has been amazing. The group has been active on the water and we have made several fishing trips, despite the heat, and have not been disappointed. I have never seen or heard of such good fish coming out of our bay systems. You can’t go a week without someone talking about catching their personal best. It looks like the conservation plan is really starting to pay off and we look forward to seeing what this winter’s fishing will have to offer!

We recently hosted our annual “Kidfish” tournament, which was a huge success. We had 115 kids come out and brave the heat to catch some fish and there were plenty caught! A special thanks to our sponsors whom without their help we could not make this event half of what it is today. I would also like to thank everyone that came out to help and all the people that brought out the kiddo’s, we look forward to next year’s event. Hope to see you there!

The last event we had this summer was our LOTB “Lingerie on The Bay”, our all ladies fishing tournament, which was another huge success. This year 285 ladies entered and came out to show us guys how it’s done and man, can they fish! The weigh-team had their hands full, that’s for sure. Congratulations to all the winners and to everyone that fished. It was a great event, we thank you all and look forward to seeing you next year.

Remember to keep the waterways clean and be respectful to your fellow anglers. Hope to see you on the water!
