Club Meeting Thursday November 5, 2020
Presenter: Charles Krueger
TCWU is very excited to host Fishery Scientist Charles (Chuck) Krueger as our special guest speaker this month. Chuck brings years of study and experience, to share and will present on the use of acoustic telemetry in Great Lakes over the past decade entitled, “Prying into the Secret Lives of Fishes”. He is certain to provide us all with a new perspective that most anglers haven't experienced. We are very lucky to have Chuck join us all the way from Michigan. You don't want to miss out on this one, so mark your calendars and we will see you all on November 5th.
