Program Activity:  

Tips,Tactics,and Techniques:  Nick Culver talked about Jigs.  He likes to customize his jigs right out of the box. He trims the skirt to the bottom of the hook and trims a little of the weed guard.  His most productive times are during spring and fall.  He likes to mix it up with the rattles letting the fish tell him if they want the noise from rattle or no rattles.  Nick always fishes targets; docks, wood, and lay downs, the shady sides of docks when there is a high sun.  He says it's important to be as quiet as possible in boat and on the trolling motor.   He likes to use braid in vegetation and switches to fluorocarbon  when fishing wood and docks.  He uses a lot of natural colors and of course black and blue.  He is very happy with the Palomar knot.  Ryan Gates is on for  September,

   Kevin Higgins talked with Fish and Game. The majority of the conservation projects that they have are targeted towards Salmon.  He  will be talking with them more in the future.   He is trying to set up a time during one of our meetings for them to come in and talk.  We added a total of 35 hours for conservation with the participation at American Lake for Take a Soldier fishing day.  We still need an additional 5 hours.
