February / March Chandeleur trip - Rod Fields has been busy fishing and planning. We have a 2 or 3 night weekend RESCHEDULED for March 20 -23. This could be one of the best Spring weekends that we have scheduled in some time. It is "prime time" with some chance of our being "bumped" for a higher paying charter group. We may open late vacancies to other club members in the area so don't miss this one! Click this Chandeleur trips file for more complete details.
April Meeting - Tuesday, April 1 - In addition to our usual fishing reports and fun, Dr. Andrew Coleman, turtle expert from the IMMS, will visit with us. We have been trying to schedule Dr. Coleman for some time, so come meet with him and hear what he has to say about the Institute for Marine Mammal Studies, their turtle studies and how we can help.
April Shell Island trip - Bob Effinger has been busy plotting a trip to the Shell Island area south of Tallahassee - April 24-27 - shellislandfishcamp.com - 850-925-6226 The trout fishing can be incredible and you will not find such miles and miles of clear water grass flats anywhere - real old Florida. Make your reservation early as they will fill up early for the Spring fishing. There are "fish fry" facilities and we should have a great time.

May Cat Island trip - Overnight(s) trip to our friend's place out on Cat Island, ~ May 16-18, which should be a great base for fishing Isle la Pietre and Biloxi Marsh at this time of year. Details coming soon.
