Lots and lots of things coming up!
At the last meeting the decision was made to delay the May outing for Matheson Hammock until May 30th, because of a conflict with Memorial day weekend on the 23rd. Same plans to fish the western shoreline, but different day. All types of watercraft are welcome. Flats boats, kayaks, and bay boats should all be able to take advantage of the shoreline between Chicken Key and Dinner Key.
Next meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, May 26. We are going to have the annual casting contest so we will start a little earlier – say around 7:00 pm. We will have three categories, Spin, Fly, and Bait casting. We will place the hula-hoop out a couple of distances and then measure how close casts come to the center of the hoop. Start practicing now.
Also, Joe Corbett will be giving a presentation on fishing tackle. He has many tips and helpful suggestions which will improve your game. Plus he will be happy to help upgrade your equipment. AND Henry will be making his award winning hamburgers while we cast the evening away.
Big Pine Key is in July. This is always an awesome, fun outing, but space is limited at the Old Wooden Bridge lodge, so we will decide which weekend to have the outing and then we should make reservations as quickly as possible. Our options are either Saturday July 11 or 18. Probably the 18th will work out better being a little further away from July 4th. Be prepared to make a decision on May 26th.
June will have our outing on Captain Chan’s Gulfstream party boat, Key Largo.
Captain Chan’s Gulfstream
Do we want to do day trip? ($65.00) or evening trip ($45.00)? Decisions, decisions, decisions…..
Time is now allowing me to post pictures on our Facebook page again, so take a look and see if you see yourself. If not, then send a photo to be posted. There have been several Dolphin tournaments and Tom’s son-in-law had a nice catch.
