Sorry guys, we haven't had a meeting for two months so there is nothing specific to report. However, you may be interested in a few comments below. I would like to thank Jim Landry for taking the beautiful pictures of our Open. It was very thoughtful that he went to all the trouble and would not accept money in return.
John Trask is off to New York again to fish with the "big boys". Good luck John, from all of us!
🎣 I was very sorry that the weather was so terrible for the Open. 28 boats started and only 11 weighed in! Of course you will remember that the entry fee was $40/person. Be sure to look for our next Open on Cobb 10/14/18. This is our big breast cancer awareness tournament, where all proceeds will be donated to breast cancer research.
🙏 Hope you all pray for my neighbor Gary, who is only 52 and will undergo radical treatment for kidney cancer.
ANDROSCOGGIN RIVER on 7/1/2018. The fee will be 80$ per boat. Fish alone or as a team. Blast-off at 8am--Weigh-in 4pm. Call Shane or John if you need more info

Really looking forward to 2018's tournaments, starting with Great Pond on April 21st and ending October 20th at Androscoggin Lake, (see tournament schedule). I'm also excited about our two opens: The first on July 1st at Androscoggin River, and the 2nd on October 4th on Cobb, in support of Breast Cancer. Incidentally, last year we were able to contribute $2, 250.
I would love your feedback on Flashers especially for running to find hydrilla, grass lines and mats, Also, how many of you use Flashers for real time signals especially at speed?
For more information, call Shane Gagnon, President at (207) 320-3324
In your service,
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you and yours from all of us!!!

Also a shout-out to those of you who always help at the weigh-in.*Please look carefully at the tournament dates--SOME HAVE CHANGED*

We at Western Maine Anglers would love to have you on-board to sponsor this very special tournament. By sponsoring our OPEN, sponsors will draw many anglers from all over the country and will give your company excellent exposure. We would be very proud to advertise your company's name and give the public knowledge of all your products. Our tournaments are held in a most professional manner by the dedication of our club anglers who have given back to the community clean and organized public ramp areas, as wells to our vets and youth.
Several OPEN tournaments have had sponsor BANNERS in backgrounds which will be at the weigh-in and during the tournament, in full view of the public. Not only anglers come to this tournament, but plenty of public as well. With that said, we would like to ask participation from your company in purchasing added prizes such as (gas, gift, or money valued prizes). We also would like to advertise this tournament with a purchase of t-shirts for the club.
We also want to continue to urge all to donate their time and effort to making this the WORTHY CAUSE that it is.
