Club contest begins April 1st. Ice is out and the boat launch dock is in and ready to go here in Sheboygan. Many trailer boats were out fishing recently and had some good luck fishing the shallow warmer water. Most of the fish are brown trout, but some rainbows and lake trout were also caught. This Tuesday at 7:00 pm is our club membership meeting. We will discuss our annual "Fishermen's Swap Meet" scheduled for this Saturday the 24th. We will also discuss basic fly & dodger fishing techniques. We had a bunch of snacks left over from our banquet get together and will have these out for our membership on Tuesday.
