On Saturday, February 18, 2017 the Hoover  Fishing Seminar XIX was held.  The funds raised for the Walnut Springs Wolves Fishing Club and also Hartley’s Hawg’s exceeded last year and will provide the necessary funds for the 2 youth fishing clubs for the year.  Big thanks to the hard working members of the planning committee.  They were:Dave Andrson, Dwight Back, Vic Buzard, Tammie Dill, Karl Guegold, Joe Hatfield, Steve Holtzapfel, Jim Horan, Amanda Johnson, Diana Kutschbach and Tim Van Auken. We also acknowledge with great appreciation all of the parents and youth who spent a great deal of time prior to and at the seminar. Thanks also to the Columbus Bass Masters for all their good work getting all of the cars parked.  A large thanks to Wm. Caxton Printing for donating the production and printing of our program.

Special thanks to a great group of Speakers who entertained and informed by sharing their information. They were: John Adair, Troy Becker, Steve Brinkley, Jim Horan, Amanda Johnson, Bob McCarthy, Nick Radabaugh and Ethan Simmons.

Of course, without the generous support of all the folks attending this year’s event, there would be no seminar. You who attended  were most appreciated.

A very special thanks to all of the sponsors who so generously provided us items for the seminar.  Following is a list.  We hope you will be a patron of their business and stop in and tell them thanks for their support of this year’s seminar.
