May Meeting: Tuesday, 5/20/14, Doors open at 6:30 p.m.
Topic: Hook, Line & Sinker Night: Member tackle sale and swap. Bring anything related to fishing you want to sell, trade, or give away… rods, reels, plugs, hooks, kayaks, …whatever. This will be a great oppurtunity for any member new to surfcasting. This will be the night to “load up” on tackle for a fraction of the cost!
