Everything Eels

Richard (called Richie by his friends) has fished from shore since he was six years old, fishing the east end of Long Island where he grew up, and then learned Rhode Island's waters when he moved to Narragansett 20 years ago. It's easy to say that Richie is one of the best surf fisherman in our area. He's a complete fisherman who targets not only bass and blues, but tog, fluke, sea bass, etc.  He fishes both plugs and bait and also makes some of the best "tin" lures for bass. Tonight he'll speak on everything eels and discuss the many ways eels can be fished live and dead. This is a "must attend" talk. If you have any questions on eel fishing, Richie will have the answer!

The annual  M/S Surf Club Tournament : Oct 17, 18, 19
Our Club has participated in this tournament for the past 9 years and its one of our favorite events as a group. Again this year we will participate and support the M/S Tournament and its cause with the donation fee. However as a club we have made a decision to not weigh in any fish and avoid the kill part of the Tourney. Two other teams, the Connecticut Surfcasters Club and the Stripped-Bass.Com Team have already committed to doing the same. So we will join them in a conservation effort to avoid killing any more fish.

So we will fish the tourney as a catch and release tourney. Please make plans to attend the breakfast on Sunday at 8:30 at the Andrea Hotel restaurant on Atlantic Ave, Misquamicut - Westerly.

Tourney starts:
Friday @ 6:00 p.m. and ends Sunday 8:00 a.m.. Fishing area is from the Narrow River to Napatree Point

Nominations for Club Officers will be tonight. If you would like to run for a Board position, now is the time.
