Message From The President:

Wow! Getting things organized for the September and October meetings has been a real trip. Going over the proposals many times to just try to understand what some of them are actually saying (including my own!) has kept me busy.
But my job has been the easy one.
We should all give Jim a pat on the back for the work he has done to get them posted, organized, and keeping them updated almost daily. He has done a terrific job and hopefully has made the process much easier for all of us to be well-informed. Please make a special effort to talk with other members before next month's meeting to get opinions and make your personal decisions on what you favor for changes if any. Remember that at the October meeting we will not allow discussion on proposals, only a brief explanation as it is necessary and a vote. No one member or group of members owns this club, it is collectively "OUR" club, every voting member is important, and your opinion/vote counts.

On another note…Jim is always trying to find ways to upgrade and make the Hook1 site better. If you have any suggestions, please pass them along to him. We have a great website thanks to his efforts.
Please email him any suggestions you may have to help make the site even better.

September Tournament:

The Hawg Hunter's were scheduled to fish our October two day tournament on the Alabama River. The launch site was Swift Creek Landing near Autugaville, Alabama. The weather forecast for the weekend was Rain, Rain and more Rain. The forecast was right everyday. Just not all day every day. At weigh-in time on Saturday most of the fishermen had something to show for their effort and five people had a limit.
A total of 49 fish were brought to the scales. Sunday there were four limits brought in with a total of 41 fish being weighed in.

1st Place
Buddy Yates

Buddy Yates brought in a limit of fish both days for 7.81 lbs Saturday and 9.73 lbs on Sunday. Buddy slamdunked 1st place with a total weight of 17.54 lbs for the weekend. Congratulations Buddy!

2nd Place
Lee Brannon

Lee took 2nd place with only 6 fish for the weekend. His lack of good luck on Saturday was more than made up when he came to the scales with 5 fish limit weighing
14.12 lbs on Sunday.
Lee's total weight was 15.49 lbs.
Lee also tied with Dave Dyess for the Lunker on day two with 4.00 lbs each.

3rd Place
Jeff Weaver

Jeff brought in 5 nice fish to take the 1st place spot on day one but let Buddy and Lee get the better of him on day two when he was only able to drag in two fish.
Total weight was 12.59 for the weekend

4th Place
John Buck

John was one of the only two fishermen to bring in a limit both days. Day one john had 5.94 lbs. and day two he had 6.14.
His total was 12.08 lbs.

Just one quick note!!
As of this writing It looks as if Dan Nash has finally managed to snatch the glory and the number one trophy of less desire from the hands of Don Jahnke for the year.
With only one tournament left I doubt Don can pull off an upset. They were both in hot pursuit of the coveted Slammer Award
until Dan dumped his load of fish in Dave's weigh-in tub Saturday and Dave counted six fish. That gave Dan a DQ for the day along with his points....Don, You need to start watching those eleventh hour come behinds. They'll get you every time.
Here's wishing you better luck next year!!
