Fishing the fresh and saltwater lagoons in The Landings will be the focus of the Coastal Conservation Association (CCA) of Skidaway’s May meeting and seminar on Monday, May 13, at St. Peter’s Church, beginning at 7 p.m.

Three avid, local anglers will give attendees insight into their experiences and expertise… Jack Welch, Ron Monaco, and Steve Thomas. Three-year Landings residents, ardent golfers, and fly fishers, Welch is a retired US Treasury agent and IBM executive, Monaco is a retired atomic energy executive, and Thomas is a retired UPS executive.

The Landings is best known as a premier golf community. However, overlooked by many prospective homebuyers is the community’s rich lagoon fishing experience. Such was the case for three avid, golfing New Neighbors who have since mastered the science of fishing the fresh- and saltwater lagoons in The Landings. Welch, Monaco, and Thomas will share their knowledge of rods, reels, lures, bait, and where and when to catch fish. They will share their stories about landing a 40-inch redfish on a bass lure, a 32-inch redfish on a fly rod, fishing the high tide, and an 8-pound bass on a worm, as well as catching sheepshead, black drum, tarpon, minnows, and shrimp.

 The May seminar raffle will offer two attendees the chance to win a spinning rod-and-reel outfit, ideal for fishing either the fresh or brackish waters of The Landings.
