Captain Duane Thurow's Team wins Inshore Dartboard - Artificial!

Team Thurow - Gary Dutton, Gary Biltgen and Duane, won the Inshore Dartboard Outing for Artificial Bait only on March 18th.  This was the club's first outing for artificial baits and the anglers in the club proved fish can be caught in numbers without live or dead bait.  Congratulations to all!!
