Message From The President:
Jim is pushing out his new and improved webpage and he asked me to start writing a article similar to the Wally's World articles. Wally Cassiano used to write many many moons ago. I'll never fill the shoes that Wally wore, but I hope my articles provide some useful info and maybe a little entertainment.
I'll start off with a hearty welcome to our two guests at the March meeting. Danny Wright and Bill Myrick. Danny is being sponsored by Senior, so he starts out with one strike against him. Danny's strike two came when he won the "golf ball" draw at his guest tournament. I hope he doesn't do anything else to hurt his chances before the April meeting.
Bill is no stranger to many of the folks in the club. Bill has been fishing in this area for many years and is very active in promoting fishing in the community. He is being sponsored by Jere Jaillite. He hasn't fished his guest tournament yet, so we'll have to vote on him later. We had a great Fish Fry on Saturday night at Miller's Ferry. A special thanks to Dave Dyess and Lee Brannon for putting it together. Everyone pitched in with the cooking and clean-up. The Fish Fry was made possible due to your support of the Special Fund (individual donations and your support in the 50/50). Let's keep it going!!!
As many have already heard, my big motor went South while pre-fishing the March tourney. I want to pass a big THANK YOU to John Buck for giving me a tow. I owe you one John.
The hot summer months are coming. Check your livewell and aerator pumps. We want to keep those little green trout alive so we can catch them again another day.
Until next month, be safe.

Minutes of the Meeting:
The March Pensacola Hawg Hunters meeting was brought to order at 7:00 P.M. on March 21, 2007 at Founaris Brothers Restaurant. President Kevin Simmons presided. There were 14 members present and 2 guests, Danny Wright and Bill Myerrick.
A Little Salt:
Pete discussed the excellent game warden services provided by the Mexican militia while he joined Mack, Dave Dyess and others there on a fishing trip. Both Pete and Dave discussed the excellent time they had in Mexico including the reasonable cost of room, food and drinks. John Buck brought in some more of his excess fishing gear to
sell at more than reasonable prices. Lee Brannon brought up the cost of rooms in Apalachicola again and stated the Best Western could give us a group rate of $85 a night as long as we rented a minimum number of 8 rooms otherwise the price would be $90 per room. The consensus was for Lee to make the best deal he could so long as we all stayed at the same hotel.
One of our guests Bill Myerrick announced he is a freshwater marine resource officer and provided some of the issues discussed at his last meeting
such as a big push on freshwater boat ramps, creek surveys to be done to determine population and need for stocking. Stone Lake is the most productive bass lake in the area, Hurricane Lake has recently dropped the minimum length from 18" to 14", also he mentioned some discussion of raising fishing license and boat registration fees.
