About Our Meetings

Our club works to monthly bring you a variety of interesting guest speakers to educate and share their knowledge.  They may be local guides, DNR Officers, tackle company reps., Radio/TV hosts, or others from the world of fishing. Educational topics range from hook types, lure presentation, new techniques/trends, how to fish more productively, and more.

In addition to the monthly meetings, our club sponsors/participates/volunteers for many fishing related events in the community such as Kids Fishing Derbies, Special Needs and Senior Fishing events, Annual Fishing Flea Market and other educational activities.   We also do an annual club picnic/barbecue in August and a holiday party in December at a local restaurant.  Members are encouraged to bring the family and friends along and get them involved in any of these activities.
