September 2016 Meeting and Tournament:

Our September meeting will be on Thursday, September 15, 2016 at 7:00pm at Pok-e-Jo’s Smokehouse on Parmer Lane. Our September tournament will be on Saturday, September 17, 2016.  Come early and enjoy some great BBQ and fellowship.

Club News:

If you haven’t renewed your hunting/fishing license, don’t forget to renew before our next tournament. We will be drawing partners at the upcoming meeting for the November travel tournament and our normal monthly tournament.  We normally try to pair up for the travel tournament based upon a Thursday or Friday departure date so members can pre-fish for either one or two days before the actual tournament.  If you cannot make the upcoming meeting, please let me or Brooks Griffith know what your travel tournament plans are so we can include you in the appropriate draw.

Fishing Report:

The Retiree Club fished Stillhouse Hollow on September 8th and it was a beautiful morning to be on the water.  The catching was slow and the winning team of Dennis Worley and Tom Kelm caught 9 fish weighing 13.94 pounds.  Stillhouse is totally full and has lots of stickups, timber that is totally submerged, and hydrilla that is on the surface in many areas.  ACBC Couples Club fished on September 19th as well as the Shenandoah Christian Bass Club.  I sure club members will have additional fishing reports to share with everyone at the upcoming meeting. I hope to see all of you Thursday evening.
