The Range Extended February Schedule

The Rod & Gun Club Sporting Clays Range will now be open on Friday in addition to Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.  This is a trial schedule for February. This will help determine the best days to be open and allow for our members to enjoy the Range more often beginning on January 28th.

A Great Fishing Adventure

An enormous pumpkin swordfish weighing in at 462 pounds was caught on Mo Cuisle on Friday, January 21st offshore after a three-hour fight. Congratulations to angler, Bud Copeland along with Captain Wade Copeland, Christian Falk, and Chris Page. This catch set a new Ocean Reef Club official record weighed on the Orvis scale. Check out the amazing pictures.
