Congratulations to all our winning anglers! 

Welcome, Welcome Back and Thank You!

We had the following special guests with us this month: 

                                Returning Members:  Randy Kvapil

                                Fishing with us as a Guest:  Kale Salmans 

**Reminder**  Be thinking of alternative lakes for our next few tournaments should the ramps become unusable.  Please know we are monitoring the area’s low water conditions and will pass along any changes to the schedule as they’re made.  In addition, be thinking of ways (dates and locations) in which we can reschedule our cookout that was postponed due to the extreme heat.    

Thanks!  Special thanks goes out to all the wives and family members who took time to see us off at the launch and greet us when we arrived back from a hard night’s fishing.  We couldn’t do it without your support.  We appreciate all of you!  Thanks also to Sam for putting together snack packs for our members.  From what I hear they really hit the spot!
