Our March 25th Meeting was a terrific night. We had almost 20 of our members in attendance, the majority of which were our newest members. The speaker will Chris Taurisano, owner of T-Bone Guide Service ( tboneguideservice.com ) gave a fantastic presentation on fishing the Chain-of-Lakes. The club members in attendance nearly mobbed Chris with questions not only about the Chain, but about fishing tactics, techniques and presentations in general. Chris once again gave a masterful presentation, and showed not only his level of expertise and knowledge, but his openness and willingness to share what he has learned over the years to help make anyone better at this sometimes frustrating sport. THANKS Chris. We definately owe ya one. 

APRIL 5-6 CLINTON LAKE OPENER -
CANCELED
The Tournament Committee is working to reschedule this event - standby.
This winter is still playing havoc with a lot of conditions related to weather, water temperatures, water levels, ground saturation, etc. These issues, combined with 3 known tournaments, expecting more than 100+ boats running on Lake Clinton on the same weekend, helped make the decision to cancel a little easier, although still very, very difficult.  


APRIL 13, ILLINOIS RIVER, SPRING VALLEY, BARTO LANDING
With the Lake Clinton cancellation, the Illinois River will now be the 2014 FVAA Season Opener. The Illinois River had been the traditional club opener, until a few years ago. Drought, asian carp, and the following year severe flooding and more asian carp forced a change. It's nice to be heading to what many longtime club members consider the 'Home Opener'. Be sure to contact Pete Trevino to confirm your participation. Boats are going fast. Pairings will be first come - first paired. Watch your email or make sure to contact your partner / buddy the monday before the tournament weekend for information related to hotels, start times, registrations, ride shares, etc. 

It should be noted that the MWC Walleye Circuit just hosted their 2014 Tournament Schedule Opener in Spring Valley last weekend. The numbers of walleye and sauger caught are encouraging. They more than doubled last years total tournament weight on Day 1, and nearly doubled the Day 1 weights on Day 2. Click HERE to see the entire MWC tournament results. Also please remember that the MWC Tournament was artificial bait only. During our FVAA event you will be allowed to use live bait - if you are so inclined.   

WISCONSIN to vote on ALLOWING TROLLING on ALL WATERS
The Wisconsin DNR is hosting multiple regional meetings to solicit feedback and public comments concerning changing the law forbidding trolling on most Wisconsin waters. If passed as presented, the new law will allow trolling on all inland waters unless special application is made to exclude a specific body of water for cause. You can read the proposal, background and justification HERE

 

  We are a Catch and Live Release, fun driven, multi-species club, that promotes and helps each other learn to fish for a wide variety of species.
