GIG HARBOR PUGET SOUND ANGLERS PRESIDENT’S MESSAGE December 2022
Our next scheduled meeting will tentatively be on Wednesday, 11 January 2023 at Tower Lanes located at 6323 6th Ave., Tacoma, telephone 253-564-8853. The meeting will start at 7:00 PM but feel free to come early and swap fish stories or grab something to eat from the grill.
Please note that there will NOT be a General Meeting in December insofar as we will be having a seasonal party on 2 December. Hopefully everyone has been informed and if interested have notified Jeff Zuniga. I expect lots of good food and friendship as well as awarding of the Lucky Fish award and the Volunteer’s award to one of the chapter volunteers who have helped make our events activities very successful.
The November meeting was well attended but no winner of the membership drawing sponsored by John Hager’s Southworth Marine of Port Orchard. The drawing was won last month so was worth $150 this month. Fred Barnes’ number 220 was drawn but Fred was not in attendance. The next membership drawing will be in January 2023 and will be worth $260. Again, thank you Southworth Marine for your continued support.
Our speaker for November was a tag team consisting of Kathy Karnino and Hal Boyton from the Auburn Save our Salmon chapter. Kathy and Hal gave us a Power Point presentation on do-it-yourself (self-guided) fishing out of Sitka primarily targeting Coho. In addition to the usual where to fish and what to use information they gave some great recommendations on boat rental and accommodations. Personally I like Sitka and doing a self-guided trip stretches out the money meaning maybe a few additional days enjoy the fishing, scenery and uniqueness of Sitka.
Our speaker for January is a mystery – to both the speaker and myself. As I have previously mentioned locating speakers is an ongoing challenge so if you would like to make a presentation or know someone who might be available please let me know. We will be having elections at the January meeting so please attend and if interested in serving the Chapter be sure to get yourself nominated.
