CHAPTER MEETING MAY 15th
Captain Mark Galasso of "Tuna The Tide" charters will be our Guest Speaker at the May Chapter Meeting. Mark will present a power point presentation on "Light Tackle Fishing in Eastern Bay". He will talk about jigging and live lining. Mark runs a 35 foot Markley, it will be interesting to see how a larger boat chases fish. Mark has 37 years of experience fishing Eastern Bay. As an added attraction Bill Wallace of "Bustem Baits" will be there to offer his array of products. Bill will have a variety of soft baits and jigging lures, custom made by him, as well as custom rods. All will be offered at show prices before and after the program.
