We have a guest speaker at each meeting to help educate our members on successful techniques to pursue local fish species; locations, methods, equipment and conditions are discussed. We also have speakers who may discuss other areas of interest to anglers including boat upkeep and maintenance, personal skin issues encountered with excessive sun exposure, Barnegat Bay health and legislative / regulatory activity that affect anglers. Go to the Pulldown Guest Speakers for 2022 under Events for a list of speakers and their biographies.
Following the guest speaker, various committees report out on their latest news followed by a general discussion from members of their most recent fishing successes / failures. Light refreshments are also provided.
