You’ll want to be available in the evenings leading up to the Governor’s Fishing Opener challenge, specifically Thursday evening for the Host Appreciation Dinner & Rules Meeting, perhaps you’ll be willing to take interested guests pan fishing on Friday, possibly Friday evening to meet with your guests and make a plan for the Saturday opener. Further, you’ll be required to be available on Saturday until approximately 4 p.m.
Before applying, if you have any questions, please email the Boat Host Co-Chair Nick Roder.
