The Rooster Tails Fishing Club monthly breakfast will be held at the Auburn Elks Lodge at 195 Pine Street in Auburn on June 15th. This free event is open to club members, spouses, and non-member guests. Doors to the Lodge open at 7:00 a.m. to share fresh brewed coffee. A fantastic $15 wide-selection buffet breakfast is served at 8:00 am followed at 9:00 am with special guest speaker Michael Lavoie, owner of Branson Baits, who will tell attendees about a new approach for catching trophy fish using custom US made, hand-poured swim baits. Reservations are not required, but breakfast attendees are encouraged to arrive early for best parking and seminar seating.
Michael’s baits incorporate electronics as a weapon to finding, marking, and targeting vulnerable big fish in salt and freshwater. Michael meticulously compiled data on the positive attributes of hundreds of swim baits and incorporated them into one design. It took him over a year to come up with a finished mold that was used to make a hand-poured super-bait that repetitively caught fish. Not just any fish, but trophy size, toothy, monster fish! His baits are now in demand by Pro Tournament Anglers as well as by fishing guides in the know. Branson baits have proven results specializing in saltwater and freshwater fish including halibut, striped bass, ling cod, rock cod, Cabazon, largemouth bass, and other large predator fish species.
In addition, Michael will be bringing with him a factory technician from Lowrance Electronics to up-date RT member’s fishfinders/GPS units for free. Members are encouraged to bring their Lowrance units early to the meeting. You don’t want to miss this special presentation if you are interested in scoring a wall-hanger fish.
