Upcoming Events

MAY 20th CHAPTER MEETING

Our guest speaker for our May 20th meeting is Captain Wayne Morgan of FRAYED KNOT FISHING CHARTERS. One of his specialties is teaching others how to fish. Perhaps better put, how to catch fish rather than spend time on the water soaking bait. Wayne fishes from a 25 foot Parker with a 250 Yamaha on the back. Most of us fish from boats under 30 feet. Waynes perspective, of boat size and restraints, is in tune with ours. He offers his clients a chance to be their own mates aboard his boat or theirs. Under his supervision you will do the catching and rigging. A real hands on experience. Waynes program for us is "EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT LIVE LINING". KNOW MATTER HOW GOOD YOU THINK YOU ARE AT LIVE LINING, YOU DO NOT WANT TO MISS THIS PROGRAM. When the program is over you will have picked up pointers to make you a better live liner. Our vendor this month will be Bill Wallace of "BUST EM BAITS". Bill will offer an array of custom products at show prices. There will be soft baits and jigging lures as well as custom rods. To make the evening even more rewarding and enjoyable there will be $200.00 in door prizes plus and as always a 50/50. Food and drink is available at reasonable prices. Come early and join us for dinner. American Legion Post 7, 1905 Crownsville Road, Crownsville, MD. NOTE MEETING STARTS A 7 PM. ALL ARE WELCOME.

JUNE 17th CHAPTER MEETING

Our guest speaker for our June 17th meeting is Lenny Rudow who will be talking about "CATCHING SPECK TROUT" in the mid bay area. Lenny has been VERY successful the past few years with this fishery. Here we all thought you had to go down the bay, to the eastern shore islands, to find them. Come to the meeting and learn where they are near home. Knowing Lenny this will be a LTJ fishery. Lenny is a well known fisherman and author. He has written eight books , six of them are about fishing. There will be copies of his books for sale at the meeting and I am sure Lenny will personalize them with an autograph. Our vendor this month will be KENNYS CUSTOM BAITS. Kenny makes the famous "School Teacher Bucktail". He will also offer other custom trolling and jigging lures at show prices. To make the evening even more rewarding and enjoyable there will be $200.00 in door prizes and as always a 50/50. Food and drink is available at reasonable prices. Come early and have dinner with us. American Legion Post 7, 1905 Crownsville, Road, Crownsville, MD. Meetings start at 7PM so plan to get there early to get a good seat. ALL ARE WELCOME.

NO CHAPTER MEETINGS IN JULY & AUGUST

July 15 MSSA ANNAPOLIS FISHING TRIP: Our annual club fishing trip out of Chesapeake Beach, Rod and Reel dock is shaping up to be our most attended trip that we have ever had. I have booked 5 boats. As of today I have 49 checks which leaves only one slot available. If you have been sitting on the fence now is the time to act. In a nut shell the trip is from 10-4 and everything is included. Boat, bait, tackle and even fish cleaning. All you have to bring is what you want to eat and drink. The cost is $85.00 for MSSA Annapolis members, family or significant others. For non MSSA Annapolis members the cost is $110.00, which reflects the actual cost of the trip without our chapters subsidy. Email me that you want a slot then send your check made out to MSSA ANNAPOLIS CHAPTER. Send to Ron Schaefer, 47 Poplar Point Road, Edgewater, MD 21037. A few days before the trip I will email boat assignments and reminders.

The MSSA is working to provide a unified voice to preserve and protect the rights, traditions and the future of recreational saltwater fishing in Maryland. If you are a Saltwater Fisherman, then you should be a Member of the MSSA. And if you live, work or fish in the greater Annapolis Area, we invite you to join the Annapolis Chapter.
