Spring Catch-n-Eat moved to June 4th-6th

Our Spring Saltwater Catch & Eat outing has been moved back to the weekend of June 4th thru 6th, due to a conflict for the Saltwater Chairman (Randy Leonpacher).  This change will also give folks a little extra time to make plans for the event.

For new folks to the C&E, fishing takes place along Highway 1 from Galliano south to Grand Isle, waters teeming with redfish, speckled trout, drum, flounder, sheepshead.   Partner up with an individual or group having your preferred fishing style (boat, kayak or bank) and head down.  All participants are responsible for making reservations at their favorite place of stay.

The Saturday evening cookout will take place at Galliano Inn in Golden Meadow. Participants are asked to contribute a share of their catch filets for the fresh fried fish. The club provides fresh shrimp (if available). Bring your own beverages and folding chairs.

To get on the email list for C&E, email Randy Leonpacher at rmleonpacr@bellsouth.net.

May 10th meeting to be at Broadmoor UMC

RSFF monthly meeting
Monday, May 10, 2021

Adult Education Building
Broadmoor United Methodist Church
10230 Mollylea Drive, Baton Rouge, LA

Welcome back! Between millions of vaccinations and a precipitious decline in new cases of Covid-19, the board has decided to renew in-person meetings starting in May.  We request that everyone wear a mask as a precaution.

One activity we haven't been able to do with our Zoom meetings is fly casting.  So we'll take advantage of the large green spaces at BUMC and do casting.  Come for instruction, or just to practice.  We'll later have a presentation on the FFI Casting Skills Challenge.   

We'll also have fishing reports, including the Concordia trip, and updates on the Spring Catch-n-Eat marsh fishing trip later in May.  The public is welcome, bring a guest!
