Attending Bass Unlimited Banquet

Indianapolis February 27th, 2016

Bob speaking at the Bass Unlimited banquet last night on the fish care aspects of Indy League Fishing. I was very impressed with the first Indianapolis Bass Unlimited banquet and was struck by the quality of sponsors and the raffle items – from Bath & Body gift baskets for the women to an 8’ Power-Pole (valued at over $1500) with several high quality rod and reel combinations in between. As Anglers we all know that our Indiana waters are depleting of the natural fish habitats they once had. Supporting an organization like Bass Unlimited is our chance as Anglers to restore our Indiana waters. This includes all the other Anglers besides Bass fishermen because once a habitat is built it will attract Crappie, Cat Fish, Pan Fish Walleye and others. We may not see the full effect in our life time but if you want your children and grandkids to enjoy the fishing experiences we have had then I suggest you join Bass Unlimited and help support the rebuilding of fish habitats in our waters.
