FAST Fishing & Fellowship Series Event #1
The FAST Fishing & Fellowship Series event #1 will be in the Detroit river, fishing for walleye this week. If you would like to participate in this event, please RSVP on this event page so we can get an accurate count of anglers. If you are coming, you need to post a comment on this events page, and tell us if you have a boat or that you need a seat on someone else's boat. And if you are bringing a boat, please tell us how many spots you have for non boat owner participants that can join you. YOU MUST RSVP TO EACH WEEKS EVENT NO LATER THAN NOON ON WEDNESDAY THAT WEEK. This is going to be important so we can get as many guys into boats as we can. If we run out of seats I will post an announcement to the fact that we are full. (Unless another boat owner RSVP's) Let me say right now, I'm sorry if you don't get into a boat, I can't buy boats for everyone. If you get stuck without a seat in a boat for an event, we will do our best to get you in the next weeks boats. So, it is your responsibility to let me know that you didn't get in one week, so I can move you to the front of the list for the next event. (Don't think that I will remember from one week to the next, when you RSVP for the next week, mention in your comment that you got left behind the last event.) I will need to nail all this down before the end of business on the Wednesday before the event. If you have questions, comments, or concerns please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or call/text to 248-514-0212

Jefferson, 2 blocks south of Conner is St. Jeans Street. Go East on St. Jeans Street, that will bend south and become Benteau St. and dead end at Freud St. Turn Left (N) and go up one block where St. Jeans starts up again on the right. Turn Right onto St. Jeans st. and take it to the end where the launch is located on the river. I believe it's free to park there.
