PGI FISHING CLUB                                                          James McCarty,

                                Between daily thunderstorms and
                                Hurricane Irma, September has
                                been a difficult month to fish. Club
                                members that have been able to
                                fish between storms have caught
                                nice red fish on the east and west
                                walls. Hopefully the weather will
                                continue to improve and we can get
                                back to fishing. October can be one
                                of the best months of the year for
                                both inshore and offshore fishing.
                                Let's hope the storms stay away.

         At our monthly club meetings, members stand a chance to win door prizes, 50/50s, and monthly awards presented for
         each month’s targeted species. As members catch different fish,
         they are awarded hats, pins, certificates and club embroidered
         shirts as they climb our Ladder of Achievement. As members
         sharpen their skills and catch various species from the Harbor
         and Gulf waters, they gradually climb this ladder, earning
         awards and recognition along the way. The pinnacle of
         achievement is when a member is awarded the status of Grand
         Master Angler.
