   SMYC Sport Fishing Club                                                                  
Each month we hold a fishing contest where not only are we sharing the enjoyment with the participants on your boat but with all the boats fishing in the event. During the event we chat back and forth on Marine channel 68. We meet back at the Harbor by 11am. We all line up with our coolers (hopefully full of fish) to weigh our catch boat by boat. Everyone tells their fish story’s about the ones they got and the ones that got away! This group has never been shy about telling where, when what bait, what depths and all the details. We call it a contest but there is not enough money on the line to keep any secrets. When we are done with the weigh-in we have a shore lunch available for a nominal charge that the whole club can enjoy.
