Our Preservation Committee has been busy with Dan Wilson discussing observations of the striper population and developing some management ideas. Dan will be with us again at the September meeting for a short update and Mike Ward will provide a summary of the committee actions.
It’s time to get ready for out next striper tournament on September 14th. I’m sure glad its after Labor Day as that should reduce the weekend boat traffic. Just remember, you can’t win if you don’t play.
There are a lot of other activities on the horizon. The October meeting is swap night and chili night. Now’s the time to start sorting through the tackle for goodies to sell and to start practicing on your chili recipes. The November meeting will include election for board members. Becoming a board member is the best way to participate in the club and to bring your thoughts, ideas and influence to the table. Remember, serving as aboard member is not a lifelong commitment, but a year or two can make a big difference. No experience required.
And remember, you can’t catch fish without your lures (or bait) in the water.
