Sac-A-Yak this Saturday!

Our first ever outing will be this Saturday, February 27, at the Cotile Lake Recreation Area.  We call it "Sac-A-Yak" with the primary species being what is known as "sacalait" here in Louisiana.  Also known as crappie or white perch, the slabs should be bedding along shorelines and shallows.  However, schools could still be in the deep water depending on the weather.

For liability purposes, this is -not- a tournament but an outing with the flavor of a tournament.  Everyone is welcome to come out and join us, there's NO entry fee and subsequently no prizes.  However, an optional calcutta is available for largest bag of five (5) crappie.  Entry for the calcutta is $10 and must be done at the registration table prior to fishing.

We'll "weigh in" at noon for calcutta payout and discussion.  Then some of us will drive a few hundred yards over to Wards Lakeside Diner for food and beverages and more lively tales and discussion.

For complete details, see our new forum!

CKA February 2nd meeting

Our next meeting will be on Tuesday, February 2nd, at the Rapides Westside Library on Provine Place in Alexandria.  Large meeting room.  Time is 6:00pm.

We'll go over some business items from the last meeting.  We'll also discuss, and get feedback on, the upcoming "Sac-A-Yak" outing on February 27th.  This will be a great opportunity for members to fish together, learn new things, and hopefully, catch some fish!

See you there!
