The Sanibel Island Fishing Club will hold its monthly meeting at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 9 in the north room of the Sanibel Community House, 2173 Periwinkle Way. There is no admission charge and the angling public is cordially invited to attend. Refreshments will be available at a nominal charge. The City of Sanibel requires everyone inside the Community House must wear a mask and vaccinations are highly recommended.

Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission Officer Wesley “Wes” Furbay will be the guest speaker. He has been a FWC officer since 2013 and is a Lee County native. He has a wife, son and daughter. In his spare time, Furbay enjoys spending time with his kids, camping, hunting and fishing.

Furbay will be handing out the current FWC Fishing Regulations and discussing the recent closures of Red Grouper and Lane Snapper. Following his presentation there will be a question and answer period where anglers can ask about various regulations, limits and the forthcoming Goliath Grouper limited special season. This presentation affords a unique opportunity to hear from a seasoned officer about what’s going on today and what we might expect to see in the future for Florida fishing enthusiasts.
