The leaves are falling and there’s a nip in the air at dawn. Fall is a great time to be out on the lake fishing. The fall tree colors add a special touch. Almost all the “fun” boaters are gone leaving a peaceful lake for us fisher-people. Soon some of them will be gone too for hunting season. Sometimes I feel like I have the lake all to myself. With the thermocline gone and the water temperature fairly uniform top to bottom, the fish could be anywhere, and they certainly are. I’ve been finding them above AND below the bridge. Soon they should begin to really school up and move upstream. The cooler temps also mean more top water activity, always exciting events. Soon the birds should also be here.And please don’t forget safety on the water. The cool air temperature and cool water can be very dangerous if you happen to fall in, which as we know is all too common. Wear that life jacket. It’s something you can live with.But more important than color, fish and fall are the upcoming elections for the Board of Directors. As I have mentioned before, there are several vacancies to be filled. Don’t be bashful and don’t be shy. Acting as a member of the board is fun and very satisfying. It is the best way to participate in the club and have you ideas and voice heard. If anyone has a question about the board or just wants to talk one-on-one, please give me a call, 708-209-6858.Also, as we approach the end of the year, it is always nice to get together with fellow members and their significant others at our annual Christmas Party. The RSVP deadline is rapidly approaching and we hope that you will be able to join us for this evening.Joe
