We had another good turnout for the March 12th meeting. Nine existing members paid their dues and five new members signed up. Welcome to: Jim Rochelle, Randy Shelton, Dave Antonson, A.J. Patrick and Ken Dybdahl. Ron Garner from Sno-King Chapter of PSA gave a talk on Halibut fishing in the straits. Those in attendance were rewarded with the where and how to catch big halibut early in the season. I think maybe even a few secret locations were divulged. Ron also touched on how important it is that we all pay attention to, and get involved in, the political fight to keep our resource alive and well. Thank you Ron for a very informative presentation.
This month’s meeting, April 9th will feature Nick Kester of All Star Fishing Charters with a presentation of ling cod fishing in the Puget Sound. You don’t want to miss this one. At the fish talk table will be Gary Lukenbill and Steve NG talking on using plugs for salmon fishing. This month’s outing is the all PSA Salmon Derby on April 6th at Port Townsend. We sold a few tickets and hopefully our club can take the trophy this year. Good luck to all attending.

A big thank-you goes out to John Hagar from Southworth Marine for donating to our monthly membership drawing. This month’s jack pot is well over $600.00. You must be present to win. Sign up sheet’s for the upcoming Cast for Kids event July 20th are available. We need 20 plus boats. It’s a fun and rewarding experience. I encourage all to participate!
Our annual Kokanee Derby on American Lake is scheduled for May 18th. Gary Mirales from Shasta Tackle will be on board this year. I think he may share some of his tips, tricks, and tackle. It should be a lot of fun. Also thank you to everyone who purchased raffle tickets. Our winner’s walked away with some great prizes and everyone that participated helped support our club activities.
Again, Thank you!
