   SMYC Sport Fishing Club    
The SMYC Sport Fishing Club is open to all members of the club that fish.
Most of us do some fishing for personal enjoyment with family and friends. This is a more organized event, about 1 time per month where not only are we sharing the enjoyment with the participants on your boat but with all the boats fishing in the contest. 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 weigh our fish by boat. This is a natural mixing with everyone to tell 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 get back we have a lunch available for a nominal charge that the whole club can enjoy.

The Leader Board

The Leader Board is located is located on the Southeast wall of the bar area. It keeps track of the two largest Fish of each species by weight. It is recognition by boat.
At the end of the year, the largest 2 fish of each species will be permanently displayed on a plaque by the fireplace. The board is maintained by Paul Rozinski so if you have a big fish fill out slip in the electrical box behind the fish cleaning station. We also have an outside ice machine that is stocked and maintained by the fishermen that is located on the southwest slab. We collect a $10 fee per Boat/year to maintain the leader board, plaque, and for a key to the ice machine. Sign up at the bar and get your key before you go out this season. Start May 11 through September 22.
