The purpose of this flyer is to give you some information on our club that should help
you in deciding if you would enjoy being part of the Puyallup Hawg Hunters.
Historically, the focus of our club has been our common interest in and enthusiasm for
competitive bass fishing. By competitive we mean the friendly easy going kind of activity
that is common among friends in any sporting activity.
Most people seeking out a bass club want to learn about bass fishing from others who
have already achieved some proficiency in bass fishing. Our club tournaments will give you
the chance to fish with members and learn more in one day or weekend than you could learn
on your own in months of fishing by yourself.
At our monthly club meetings we discuss the up coming lakes we are going to be fishing
as well as other lakes we have fished during the year. We share what is working and where.
Before, during, and after our meetings you will have a chance to talk to members about the
many aspects of bass fishing ranging from boats and motors to where to buy tackle. You can
arrange to go fishing with different members. Most of the members go fishing as often as
they can and will gladly take you fishing if you ask them.
This brings up an important point. If you decide to join our club, you will have the
primary responsibility to see that you get what you need from the club. While we appoint a
buddy for all new club members to ensure a positive transition into the club it is still your
responsibility to be aggressive enough to get what you want out of the club.
Each year we try to do things to improve bass fishing like working on conservation
projects related to the fishery we enjoy and improving the image or bass fishing in the
local community by raising money for charities and working with kids. We participate in
state and national groups that govern and influence our fisheries. If you decide to join
our club we will expect you to take a part in the functioning of the club. We will expect
you to be willing to give of your time and energy to help our club stay a viable
organization. Because we limit our membership to keep it a close personal club we are
dependent on each member to be part of the work as well as the fun.
We were originally affiliated with Bass Anglers Sportsman Society, a national organization of bass
fishermen. The B.A.S.S. affiliation changed in 2006. The club
continues to be a member club of the Washington State Bass Federation, The Bass Federation Inc. (TBF Inc
- an organization that represents all of the state Federations) and FLW.
Each year the top ten anglers from the previous year represent the club at
the Federation Qualifier Tournaments.
We meet the 2nd Wednesday of the month ( except for January when we have our
Awards Banquet ) at 7:00 PM at South Hill Denny's, 626S. Hill Park in Puyallup.
