AIST..... Guess who is going on a Pollock Trip... 50 of us are!!!! Nov 8th an all AIST Partyboat trip - We have the whole boat... Next 12 members to pay are in... 25$ per - Club pays the rest.... Signup with Pres and or Secretary.
AIST Pollock Trip...Membership has its privileges... This is a Club sponsored event that will include travel to and from from the boat as well as all rods and gear included but you are welcome to bring your own jigs and gear if you wish.. We have the whole boat!!
Scenes from 1952 Pollock Trip out of Montauk....
We will be fishing in up to 300 ft of water so 10 to 20 oz jigs with
braid spooled gear that can handle those conditions are recommended.
The Capt expects this to be primarily a jigging trip. It will be a All DAY affair this is not a 1/2 day or even 3/4 day trip We have scored a full day plus type trip (7am to 4:30 pm) as recommended by the Capt so that we will have all day to explore options and get on the fish. The entire cost for the DAY is 25$ yes thats right 25$ your club has paid the rest. But no I ou's this time just the first 50 current dues paid members who pay so come to Octobers meeting and lets get er done or contact either President Corey Smith or Sec Greg Vespe before that to pay and lock up a slot. ..

May meeting speakers Gisele....
AIST announces our April Speaker
Yes ..... Tony Stetzko!!! We just had a speaker who landed a 70 lber from a boat....pretty darn good but how about one that has landed a 70 from the Surf!!! Its a feat so rare that perhaps only 3 or 4 guys alive have done it.... come here from a true Surf specialist and one time (and many think current)owner of the World Record title "Largest Surf caught Striped Bass in the World."
Along with catching giant Stripers Tony is known for being the King of the teaser/dropper loop set up surf. He fishes it to perfection and has really brought it to mainstream surf fishing.
Come out hear Tony.... get signed up for the Striper Cup and be part of AIST!!
Team Survey.... please click on this link and follow it to the club survey
Please just respond once per member...
April means this is the last team meeting before the Striper Cup starts.. Can you believe it!! The Season is right around the corner...
April's meeting will have the Striper Cup guys from "On The Water" at our meeting to help with last minute signups for the team.
Also besides our our April 16th meeting We will be having leadfest at the end of the month... so get ready to enjoy some heavy metal with your team.
