Blue Gill Fishing Club was organized in 1992 by five
community men. “It was first a social club, we would take
fishing trips together at least once a year. We still fish
once a year, but we’ve grown in the services we provide to
the community. We provide hot dogs for youth during the
summer at the nearby park,” said Al Chapman one of the
original club members.
