On Tuesday, Nov. 9, the Sanibel Island Fishing Club will be holding it’s first monthly meeting of the 2010-11 season. The meeting will begin at 6:30 p.m. in the north room of the Sanibel Community Center, located at 2173 Periwinkle Way.

The featured speaker, Charles Sobczak, will begin his presentation at 7 p.m. sharp. There is no admission charge for the event and the angling public is cordially invited to attend.

Sobczak is an active member as well as a past president of the Sanibel Island Fishing Club. He is also a well-known author of several popular books including Six Mornings on Sanibel and the recently released nature guide, “LIVING SANIBEL – A Nature Guide to Sanibel & Captiva Islands.”

The topic of his presentation will be on grouper and snapper fishing offshore in the Gulf of Mexico. Everyone attending will be given an extensive list of some of his favorite GPS numbers so this is a meeting you may not want to miss! Topics will include how to drift for red grouper, favorite baits to use, how to set up for night snapper trips, chumming and the various rods, reels, sinkers and hooks to use when fishing for these delicious table fare targets.
