Just a reminder to the Hawghunters,
the picnic is set for Sept. 28th
and the picnic site is reserved.
Pete Potter will ask for a head
count at the September meeting, this includes family members. Pete needs an accurate count so he can plan accordingly, food, etc. The picnic is always a fun time so everyone try and be there if at all possible. Frank Kelly has volunteered to do the cooking this year. Sorry Don Jahnke, we will all feel much safer. Some of the activities that will be going on are horse shoes, putt putt golf, and frisby. Maybe Neil would like a shot at the horse shoe title again this year.Pete will have more info on the fish fry he is planning for Lake Martin at the September meeting.
The Hawghunters would like to welcome their newest member to the club, E.W. Coombs, (earth worm) from parts unknown. Having fished with E.W. myself on occasions, I know he will keep us in stitches.

There will be no discussion at the October mtg.

Say hello to Ken Repine.
Ken is sponsored into the club by his Bro-In-Law WayneThomley.
Ken doesn't own a boat so he will fish as a nonboater.
That will be a BIG PLUS for him come voting night.
Ken is retired after 30 long years of service with the
Escambia County Sherffs Dept. and sits at home with his wife Wanda trying to think up way's
on how to get away from the honey-do's.
hence!...A new Hawg Hunter Welcome aboard Ken.
Watch him guys...I think he gave me a speeding ticket once.
The August tournament was held on the Blackwater River out of the Carpenters Park. There were 23 Hawg Hunters and 1 guest present to fish at safe daylight.
This was the last tournament of the season with a 2 P.M. weigh in, the remaining tournaments for this season will have a 4 P.M. weigh in. As usual this season, conditions were not favorable for a good day of fishing, high water and an incoming tide was the factors.
It was a tough day of fishing even though the weather held up till around noon when the bottom fell out with the usual heavy down pours. I think most fish were caught on soft plastics and a few on top water, but there were no limits caught. Only 12 of 24 brought fish to the scales.
