Next Meeting Date: June 12th @ 7:00pm
Speaker: Who better to have talk to us about Spade Fishing than one of the people who helped pioneer
the fishery in this area? Captain Herb Gordon and four or five others were the first to open up
this fishery in about 1997. He has been one of this area’s most prolific charter guides. After a
career spanning 40 years he decided it was time to retire and so 6 years ago he did just that.
He now spends his time fishing with his family and friends.
Capt. Herb is going to talk about the early days of the fishery and some of the other pioneers. He will talk about what these fish eat, the tackle to use, why small hooks are important as well as places to fish for them. When fishing for these fish you have to bring your patience and he will discuss why this is important. Bring your paper and pencil to take notes so you will be able to go fish for Spade Fish and actually catch them.
