    Would like to join the club


    • Wayne Hoffman says:

      Paul I have been a member for years and I haven’t gotten any notice for dues payment. I know with the pandemic we weren’t having meetings. I still want to be a member of the club. At the present time I am here 7 to 8 months in the year and up north for the summers so I want to be a part of the group. Thanks Wayne Hoffman

        Hi Wayne- My name is Doug Tilley. I’m looking for someone interested in trying Lake Harris for Largemouth bass fishing. Renting one of their boats and heading out sometime next week. I brought some of my gear and could supply you as well. Are you related to Duane Hoffman of Orwigsburg, PA ? or Dave Hoffman from Weatherly PA?

  3. Doug Tilley says:

    Please put me on a waiting list to join. I own a fishing camp in Ontario Canada and have just arrived in Florida at the villages for the first time.
    I brought some equipment with and plan on fishing the Harris lake system. Looking for fishing partners.
