Bass Taps 2019

July/August 2019

Hello All,

We are now 6 tourneys into the 2019 Season and had our annual Earl Glasshagel Benefit Tournament for Shriners Children’s Hospital with great success. We also had our kid’s tournament on Father’s Day at Blydenburgh Lake, It was nice to see we had a few more boats than last year. New Member Bobby and his girls came to the scales with a beast of a fish weighing in at 6.63 pounds! Nice job guys.

We still have many more tourneys left in the season with our last Qualifier being a 2-day in Saratoga. For anyone who has not fished Saratoga I strongly recommend trying to make it. Saratoga is a great weekend to get away and hang out with the guys in the club on and off the water, and after a day of fishing we get together share stories about the day and then go out for some BBQ and maybe have a beer or two?

I would like to welcome our new members this season and hope they are enjoying fishing with our club and will remain LIB members for years to come.

Most of you are aware that Dom is stepping down from organizing the Glasshagel. I would like to thank him for his dedication and hard work in making it a huge success for the past decade he has been at the helm. With that being said we will be looking for someone to organize future Glasshagel events. Whoever decides to step up can form a committee to help out and Dom will set you up with all his vendors for donations. I feel that we need one person who is in charge of event. We will be taking applications starting this week. 

We will be moving our monthly meetings to AMVETS POST 48, which is located at 660 Hawkins Ave, Ronkonkoma.

I would like to keep our monthly meetings informative as well as enjoyable, so if anyone has a specific technique they are proficient at or fishing related subject and are willing to do a short presentation on that technique please let George or myself know. 

Ok that’s all for now. Hope everyone is having a great summer so far!

See you on the water.
