Eric Hills talked about using small swimbaits for catching bass. He
brought several with him to demonstrate
their versatility including but not limited
to the standard swimbait jig head, weedless
weighted hook, under spins, swim jigs,
football heads, swing heads and even fishing

which was cut short due to time constraints.
mentioned that the club officers got
together a few weeks ago to discuss out
budget with the rising cost of tournament
permits and federation dues. We were looking

bylaws was made that would add a small
tournament fee for each club tournament. The
fee would be $5 for club members and $10 for
