Flagler Sportfishing Club

FROM THE HELM: by: President Chuck Gleichmann
Welcome to 2015! We have a great schedule of events for this year with some returning oldies and goodies mixed in with some new activities so stay tuned for the specifics.
Before I go too far, please join me in thanking Dean Roberts and Vinnie Alongi and their wives for throwing the best holiday party, ever and their raffle designer elf, Shay Morrow. Everyone I spoke with had a great time and next years will be bigger and better.
Make sure you attend January’s meeting for the Chili Cook-off and to pick up one of our new FREE club calendars that has all of the events and meetings on it. Hopefully, the calendar will help stamp out the ex-cuse that “I forgot”. Finally, make sure you sign up to work our booth at the Flagler Home Show, January 24-25. It’s a great time to visit, talk some fishing and meet some new folks.
Bill May has been hard at work lining up new annualsponsors for 2015. Welcome the Fishin’ Shack in South Daytona to our growing list of sponsors. Richard and Andy are extremely knowl-edgeable fisherman and have supported our pay tournaments in the past. They have a TON of in-shore and offshore inventory that rivals Strike Zone’s in Jacksonville so check them out and tell them you are with our club. They will take good care of you.
Please keep in mind that our annual sponsors de-pend on our members to support their business so they can support us. January is a good month to do all of the maintenance that needs to be done on rods, reels, tackle and boats so check what our sponsors have to offer. It’s also the month many of our sponsors are slow so they really appreciate your purchases. They will take good care of you.
See you on the water!

NMMA Dissatisfied with U.S. Court of Appeals

Washington, D.C. – October 22, 2014– The National Marine Manufacturers Association (NMMA) is disappointed by the decision released on Tuesday, October 21, 2014, of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit to dismiss the recreational boating industry’s challenge of the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) rule regarding misfueling mitigation plans surrounding the sale of E15. The case specifically challenged the EPA’s plans to prevent misfueling including the use of what NMMA believes is a highly inadequate pump warning label amongst other insufficient means.

Welcome to the Flagler Sportfishing Club website. We are an extremely active club with around 200 family's (over 400 members). Our meeting place has changed recently to the VFW in Palm Coast. We meet once a month and have a lot of events and tournaments throughout the year. Some of our tournaments pay cash awards of up to 4,000.00 dollars while others are smaller but just as much fun! Check out the 2014 schedule by clicking the link on the upper right.

Our club meetings focus on educating our members on local fishing techniques as well as staying informed on local laws and regulations. Most meetings are attended by a speaker who is a professional fishing guide in our local area. If you are considering joining our club, stop by on the first Wednesday of any month (except December). See more info under the membership link above.

Our success is a direct result of our member participation, as well as our great sponsors. We encourage each and every member to come to our meetings, and participate in our tournaments. And don't forget, when your shopping in the area to visit our sponsors and thank them for their support..
