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
