 CLUB MESSAGE  - January, 2018

The South Sound PSA chapter ended the year with a very successful and entertaining banquet. Over 100 members and their families enjoyed a delicious turkey and ham dinner. One of the highlights of the evening was the awarding of prizes to the winners of our first All Species Fishing Derby. We had 30 species entered into the contest with the winner for each species determined by the longest entrant. The winners ranged from a 4.5 inch Pumpkin Seed Sunfish to a 76 inch Blue Shark (unfortunately the shark was released after being measured as it would have been the state record if verified). Kelly and Paula Corcoran were the overall winners in the contest with 15 and 7 entrants respectively. You recently received an email forwarding the Puget Sound Chinook Management Plan. I realize that this 300+ page document is a lot to read and confess that I haven’t read it all and find what I have read to be somewhat difficult to understand. I would like to encourage everyone to at least read the executive summary. This plan, as I read it, goes way beyond applying to Puget Sound fisheries. If it is accepted and implemented by NOAA it will ultimately affect recreational and commercial fishing opportunities not only in Puget Sound but also coastal fisheries from Washington to Alaska. I am most concerned that it was drafted, adopted and forwarded to NOAA without a chance for public comment. I recognize the constraints of multi-nation negotiation in reaching the final product, but WDFW should at least shared its position with its stakeholders while negotiating. As we approach the New Year your board is seeking input from you regarding activities and or outings. If you have any suggestions please bring them forward to any board member or officer. We do have a couple of outings already on the calendar. The first is a clam dig and wienie roast at Roosevelt Beach on New Year’s Eve. Actually it is this year and is subject WDFW’s opening of the beaches. We plan to meet at the Mud Bay Park and Ride at 2:30 PM and car pool to the beach. The other outing on the schedule is the Skookumchuck Clean-up scheduled for the third Saturday in February. Our January 4th meeting location has been changed to the conference room at the Lacey Cabela’s. Our speaker will be Jim Tuggle, a retired WDFW employee and a longtime member of our club. Jim will clue us in on his perspective of the 2018 fishing season and hopefully will give us some insight regarding the Puget Sound Chinook Management Plan. REMEMBER, THE JANUARY MEETING WILL BE AT CABELA’S!
