CHAPTER MEETING OCTOBER 15th
Our guest speaker for our October meeting is Shawn Kimbro. Shawn is a very well known and highly respected local light tackle angler. Shawns program is titled LIGHT TACKLE ESSENTIALS. Along with his program he will preview his new book THE RIGHT STUFF. With the Rock Fish schooling for their fall feeding frenzy this is a program you want to see. Shawn will be sharing tips on where and when to find these schooling fish. We will have two vendors displaying their tackle this month. Neil Cohen, owner of "The Annapolis Angler", will have a display of his hand crafted wooden poppers. They are truly a thing of beauty and priced very reasonably. Along with Neal, George Leonard of "Specialized Baits" will have his full selection of hand crafted metal and soft baits for sale at show prices. To make the evening even more enjoyable and rewarding 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 join us for dinner. American Legion Post 7, 1905 Crownsville Road, Crownsville, MD. NOTE NEW STARTING TIME. MEETING STARTS AT 7PM SHARP. ALL ARE WELCOME.
CHAPTER MEETING NOVEMBER 19th
We will have three guest speakers for our November meeting each giving a presentation on "FALL TROLLING TACTICS". The Annapolis Chapter is very fortunate to have some of the best fisherman in the MSSA. I have approached three of them and they have agreed to put on this special program. Each speaker will talk for 20 minutes on his methods of catching big fall Rock Fish giving us suggestions, tips and nuances on catching more fish. After all three have given their talk there will be a question and answer period. The first speaker will be Dale Dirks, 4 time winner of MSSA Captain of the Year Award. Dale actively fishes the Chesapeake Bay out of South River in the spring and fall. During the summer months he fishes the ocean. The second speaker will be Brian Lowery. Brian has fished the Chesapeake for over 20 years, and was crew on the winner of the 2010 spring MSSA Championship of the Chesapeake. He has mated for charter boats out of Rod and Reel and Ocean City. Brian will focus on how he prepares himself and his boat to fish a tournament. With the fall MSSA tournament coming up this topic is right on target. The third speaker is Kevin McMenamin. Kevin is the most organized skipper in the club. Everything Kevin does is with the goal of being able to repeat what is working. Once he is dialed in he can repeat what is catching with predictability. Our vendor this month is Jim "JIMBO" Bieler owner of MARTYs. Jim will have all the latest trolling gear for sale at great prices. To make the evening even more enjoyable and rewarding 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 join us for dinner. American Legion Post 7, 1905 Crownsville Road, Crownsville, MD. NOTE NEW STARTING TIME. MEETING STARTS AT 7PM SHARP. ALL ARE WELCOME.
