Looking Ahead for the Rod & GunBy Christine Patton

There is much of interest to the Rod and Gun Club, and to sportsmen at The Reef, in the coming months.

“Pick any 3 Days” Tournament

January and February are the first of two rounds of the “Pick any 3 Days” tournament. This is a minimum fuss, no fee, no social event fishing contest. You decide which three days you will count — wait till the last minute and get the perfect weather, best conditions and your favorite colleagues. Simply send an email the night before/or morning of the day you are going out to There is a Flats category and an Offshore category, and a point scale for fish in each. At the end of the day, simply report your results, again, by email. What could be easier? For details, see the tournament rules at calendar.

Shoreline Clean-up

February starts off with a February 5 Shoreline Clean-up, in cooperation with the Bonefish Bonnies. Meet at Buccaneer Island and pick up supplies provided by ORC — garbage bags, gloves, etc. — and help to reduce the endless supply of debris that washes up on our shores.

Dinner & Presentation

The month concludes February 23 with a dinner event attended by some guest fishing guides, preceded by a video presentation by the BTT at the Cultural Center.

Also coming up in February is a Rod and Gun field trip to shoot sporting clays at the Markham Park Shooting Academy on February 23. Looking for twenty guns to go up to Broward County for an afternoon outing.
