The Quad City Bass Fisherman's Club, based in Davenport, Iowa along the banks of the Mississippi River, was formed in 1963 making it one of the oldest known bass fishing clubs in the country. The club currently boasts a membership of over 200 men and women. We annually have 7 club closed tournaments, 1 open tournament that takes place in conjunction with the Tug Festival in LeClaire, Iowa, 2 husband and wife outings, and a summer picnic. The club motto "Leave Some For Seed" represents the emphasis placed on catch and release at every club tournament. Monthly meetings are held on the last Monday of the month and the public is invited to attend.

SEPTEMBER SPONSORS OF THE MONTH

We are once again fortunate to have two sponsors for the month of September. The first August sponsor of the month is Tom Kracaw & Culligan Water who been a member and sponsor for many years. Soft water will help get your laundry cleaner and softer especially if you are on well water. If you don't have soft water you can have them put a purifier on your tap to give you better tasting water. If you go with the big jugs it's a proven fact that you will drink more water instead of soda and feel better and healthier without all the chemicals. Contact them for a quote for a softener or a purifier. See their ad on the mailer and give them a call at 563-242-1342 for better water.


Our second July Sponsor of the Month is Kay Picolet and Midwest Publishing who have also been a member and sponsor for quite a few years. Our last order of bass club hats were purchased from Kay. She can also set you up with calendars, pens, apparel, tote bags, koozies and anything else with your name and/or logo on it. Check out Kay's ad on the back of the monthly mailer and give her a call at 563-324-1313 for all of your advertising needs.

NEW IOWA AQUATIC HITCHIKER LAWS

As of July 1, 2013 a new set of aquatic hitchiker laws went into effect in Iowa. Before leaving a water access YOU MUST: INSPECT all boats, trailers and equipment, REMOVE any visible plants, animals and mud. No aquatic invasive species or aquatic plants can be transported on public roads. DRAIN all water from boats, live wells and equipment. While in transit on Iowa roadways, boat drain plugs must be removed and all drain valves (livewell pumpouts) must remain open. A violation of these laws can bring a fine of up to $500. These are good laws and it will only take a few minutes after you load your boat to observe them.
