BOAT OUTING - Saturday June 10 Inshore and Offshore options TBD
As promised and in response to member feedback, we are excited to announce our 2nd club outing of the year. As you may recall, March 25 was our Beach Outing which was attended by over 30 members. Now, we have 9 boat owners who are offering their boat to take members out for a day of fishing. For those of you who do not own boats, what a great way to get out on the water and fish with fellow club members.
There will be 2 options for you to fish. Either inshore (back country, marsh, river etc) or offshore which will be trolling and bottom fishing the offshore reefs of Fernandina Beach. Based on our number of boats, we will be able to take the first 21 members who sign up.
After you sign up and are selected to fish, we will announce the "pairings" of captain and members at the May Social. That will allow for ample time for captains and members to connect on all of the specific logistics. Members should expect to share in any expenses of the day.
Additionally, we will have a mini boat tournament for those participants in offshore (Kingfish, Cobia, Sea bass) and inshore (redfish, trout, flounder) with the largest of each species winning $25. We will be set up at the AI Marina/Carefree Boat Club for weigh-in. But, fish caught in this event can be weighed at any of our 4 weigh stations.
More communication will be forthcoming as we get members signed up.
