Minutes of the Meeting:
The July 2000 meeting of the Pensacola Hawg Hunters was brought to order at 7:00 p.m. on July 19, 2000. The meeting was held at the Seafood Shanty on Hwy 29 and was presided over by President Jack Maher. There were 27 members present.
Any member in good standing can turn as many Constitutional and By-Law changes as they like, but the changes must be received by the September meeting in writing.
one third to the fish off pot, one third towards the banquet and one third to a family function. A motion was made and all Hawg hunters present voted on it and it passed. There is a committee of four Hawg hunters that volunteered to put the family function together. The volunteers are: Brian Metcalf, Kevin Simmons, Pete Potter and Mack Cramer.
The July tournament took place on the Tensaw River out of Live Oak Landing. There were 20 Hawg Hunters ready to fish at safe daylight. The tournament director called out the numbers one by one and everyone was gone in a flash. The humidity was high and the temperatures were rising. The field of twenty Hawg Hunters was split with about half of the club headed up river and the other headed down. With the temperatures rising everyone wanted to put fish in the boat early. At mid-day the temperature was in the mid 90's. At about 1 o'clock there was a severe thunderstorm that came through, it was so severe that it even dropped hail.
The tournament director opened the scales at 4 o'clock and started weighing fish. There were forty-one fished weighed with one dead fish. After the scales were closed the club had weighed in a total of 66.05 lbs of fish. Congratulation goes to Lee Brannon for bringing in four nice fish for a total of 10.65 lbs. Lee also took lunker of the day with a nice bass that weighed 4.55 lbs. Coming in second was Brian Metcalf with a limit of fish weighing in at 8.55 lbs. Brian's big fish weighed in at 2.85 lbs. Rounding out the top three was Fred Raby with three fish weighing in at 6.70 lbs. Fred's big fish went 2.65 lbs. There were two other fish that were weighed in for big fish and they belonged to Mack Cramer 3.15 lbs and Neil Springstead 2.65 lbs. Great job Lee on a good win and moving into the top six.
