There are many reasons to join the Traverse City Area Steelheaders (TCAS), and I know each person that belongs has done so for different reasons. TCAS has affiliations with MSSFA and MUCC both provide a strong voice for fisherman and sportsman in Michigan’s Legislature. With current issues like net pen aqua culture on the great lakes and commercial by-catch limits a TCAS membership ensures your voice is heard on these issues.
The guest speakers at our monthly meetings are second to none. Past Speakers have included DNR Fisheries Manager Heather Hettinger and the best fishing guide in the area Jim Chamberlain among others. This makes our meeting highly informative about the local fisheries and every evolving tactics to fish them.
Whatever your species of interest, whether its salmon or bluegill there are members who share your interest, and are willing to share information on lakes and streams you may have never thought to fish . You’ll quickly develop a network friends that can keep you on a hot bite all year long.
