 Social & Hobby Clubs: Fish Tales Fishing Club News

Gulf Harbors
Gulf Harbors Fishing Club
Meetings Every Third Thursday at 7 p.m.

By Bob Richute - Secretary

We all survuved the Gulf Harbors Fishing Club Garage Sale and are into the Holiday season. We hope all GHCA residents had a Happy Holidays and a have a Happy New Year.

The Fishing Club continues to grow, four new members at our last meeting. We welcome Jim Humlicek, Beth Buschart, Tina Ritchhart and Tom Weist.

Ken Jones, also known as the “The Saltwater Fishing Coach” was our November guest speaker. He spoke about night fishing. He explained how night fishing is no different than day fishing except it is a bit less crowded on the waterways, the fish are still there, and still very hungry. Ken told us that the bait he uses is the same but the fish are not as spooked The best fishing is at full moon with high tides. You can get four to six hours of good fishing on an incoming tidal flow at night. Best places to fish are still around those oyster beds where you have some flowing water. The snook and redfish love those areas at night too. The tidal flow is very important to the fish since it provides movement, and the flow also expands the area of smell from your bait.

Mangrove snapper are also a good bite at night. The bigger snappers are more apt to attack your bait near the mangroves in the still of the night.

The club continue to get new members. Of the 34 people attending the meeting we had four new members as indicated earlier. Everyone is invited (men , women and children). Social time starts at 6:30, meeting starts at 7:00. We are planning several family outings this year. Come to the meetings so we can get your input.

We had a lot of positive fishing reports last month. Many reporting going out and catching their limits of grouper, Trout , Cobia and Mackeral. Fall fishing is still real good.

 Social & Hobby Clubs: The Calusa Cruise Club

<br>Things<br> To DoThe Calusa Cruise Club's Treasure Hunt, held on Saturday, September 7th was a great success. On Friday, Commodore Jack Hexter, accompanied by Francis Everhart, drove all over the local waters, placing 7 marker buoys between the Anclote River and the Cotee River, and out to Anclote Island. Each marker buoy had 10 coded ribbons on it. Participants were given distances and bearings from known markers and could start at any time on Saturday morning to try to find the buoys.

 Social & Hobby Clubs: Gulf Harbors Yacht Club - Tuesday Golf League

CommunityAs a longtime Yacht Club member, many people ask me what I like about being a member of the GHYC. While there are many things I love about the dub; it's waterfront location, the fact my husband and I can go to dinner there by boat, great food, best bar in town, fun social events and more; there is really only one real reason we have remained members there so many years.

It's the people; the powerful friendships we have formed that make us feel we have an extended family. Let me give you an example;

 Social & Hobby Clubs: HOBBY CLUB UPDATE

Life on<br>the Gulf

What Have the Ladies In Hobby Club Been Up To?

Christmas has come and gone and another year is upon us. Everyone is making New Year's Resolutions, even Hobby Club

We would love to increase our membership. We have a wonderful time visiting and sharing our diverse talents. Over the years, our membership has dwindled. And this year was no different. We really want to make everyone feel welcome,. no matter how skilled or unskilled you feel you are. We especially want to encourage younger women to join. Even if you can't come every week, we would love to count you in our ranks. I know your lives are hectic. But, if you at all enjoy crafting (or just visiting with a bunch of gossipy women), please consider adding Thursday morning with hobby club to your schedule.
