The club discussed our upcoming Lake Okeechobee two day event on March 19-20 which we will be launching both days out of the Harney Pond Canal ramp. If anyone needs info on accomodations, call or e-mail and we can give you some local numbers for rooms that are good for boat parking.
We also discussed changes to the by-laws which will need to be made to keep the club in compliance with the new FWC black bass rules. Starting July 1, 2016 the limit for black bass will still be five but only one can be over 16 inches in length. This changes section V Tournament Regulations, Part D Fish/Limit Requirements, Rule 10 to one fish over 16" in place of the present one fish over 22" in the live well. This change will require every tournament to have a permit beginning July 1, 2016. No other items were brought forward for discussion or change at this time.
