I would be interested as well. When I was a kid, my Dad and I never missed a Striper Kings Meeting. This was in the early 80's before there were any bait shops, we had to net our own herring every trip. We had a great group of buddies in the club who all shared bait catching and fishing info. We would all hit the lake together on the weekends and call each other on the radio if we found the fish. Slowly the club shifted to having tournaments and the whole dynamic changed. Everyone clammed up and little clicks formed. We dropped out and most of our group of buddies did around the same time. I try to fish every weekend still and Dad still goes about once a week too but neither of us could care less about a tournament. Actually we do care about them...we go to another lake if there is going to be a striper tournament.
